If you follow me on twitter, you will know last week i got my lashes permed and tinted! I had never had this done before so I thought I would share my experience!
My lashes are light and look short when the tips aren't slicked with mascara.
As my eyes were closed during the treatment, my beautician described to me what she was doing.
A little sticky tube was placed on my top lash line and my lases were separated and curled upwards around the tube. Once each lash as in place, she brushed on a 1% peroxide to set the curl. My eyes were then covered with cotton wool pads, some cling film and a towel to keep the heat in. About 10 minutes later the tube was taken off and after some cleansing my lashes were permed! Voila! At no point did my eyes sting, hurt or anything out of the ordinary. It was actually quite relaxing! My beautician said that perming helps the lashes grow stronger and longer, something we all strive for!! This is recommended every 6 weeks but I will let you know how mine stand the test of time!
As much as I would love to make this sound like an exotic procedure... it really isn't! Its basically dying your lashes! So the dye was brushed on, left for a while then wiped off!! Again no pain, watering of eyes, nothing!
At first I was quite disappointed with the results. The reason this was, is because in my head I pictured long thick lashes. Naive I know as they can only work with what is already there! (sometimes I really think i should be blonde!) I have grown to love them over the last couple of days. I have worn mascara once just on my bottom lashes, which suits me fine right now! Getting ready time has been reduced!! woo!!
Has anyone else had this done before?
