Hoping you are all well. As you may have seen from my previous blogs, I am enjoying the new found love of false lashes!
I previously brought the MAC # 43 false lashes, which on me look very natural (in my opinion): wearing these with a ‘natural’ eye look, can make the eyes look quite stunning, not overly glam. Subtle, with the look of ….you look nice!’ but not knowing exactly what it is….! They can also be worn with a dramatic eye and look beautiful (analogy, jeans with trainers, or jeans with heals!)
Lashes I wore are the MAC # 43
During that bout I got out my Red Cherry #62 lashes (which I had carried in my travel bag forever) and although a bit glam on my standards, I wore those suckers, with a glam eye makeup; with confidence whilst out for dinner with hubby!
I find with the Red Cherry #62’s work well and look good, if partnered with a glamourous eye so they do not look overly clown like, (analogy, imagine you were to wear a beautiful evening gown and trainers) the eye makeup has to be dramatic – to carry off the whole glamour effect.

So now on my new found journey, I have been looking at trying out semi permanent lash extensions. After much research I have finally come to a decision to get them done in the Blink Bar. I liked the fact that they first do a patch test, although you can opt out of that and have them applied without being tested first, you sign a disclaimer, so at your own risk be it. For me I would rather have the 48 hour patch test! My eyes are precious! I will try the patch test on both the semi permanent and the 2 week cluster as they both use their own chemical application (which gives me an option to see if I prefer one over the other, or worst comes to worst, I may react to one and not the other or both!) Hoping I get the result of which to choose!!
Here’s is a picture of my natural curly/coily short stubs of a lash!!

I will blog my experience regarding my visit to the Blink Bar in due course!! I am looking at end of July in time for a friends b’day celebration.
So excited! Crazy isnt it!!??

Update August 4, 2014
Got them done! My cluster lashes at the Blink Bar on July 28, 2014. First on the Friday before I had a patch test with the extensions and with the cluster. However, the technician advised I could not have the extensions, as I have bald patches (no lashes) in some areas of my lash line (I pulled out my lashes when I was young?!); the extensions are placed on your natural lashes, so if you have none……! The only option for me would be the cluster lashes. Thankfully I had no reaction to the chemicals. The following Monday I went to my appointment. The section lasted 1 hour, no pain, and they are applied with your eyes open. You focus on an object and the technican applies individual clusters to your lash line, by slightly pulling up your eye lid. Sounds not very nice, but its not as bad as it sounds. Put it this way an underarm wax is more uncomfortable and applying the clusters does not come near! At the Blink Bar they explain everything you need to know.

Blink Bar clusters July 28, 2014 – really enjoying them
Had a lot of compliments. People that know me knew there was something different but didn’t know what! Would definitely get them done again. The clusters last approx 2 weeks, or until your own eyelashes, naturally fall out.
There are many Blink Bar stores to choose from, find a location convenient for you.
Ciao for now, God bless Debs
