I was contacted by the lovely Stephanie Kehoe who is a beautician & general eyelash magician in Life Hair & Beauty in Sligo who asked if I would do a review of the salon to which I quickly accepted! She mentioned Mink Eyelashes and I was so excited about getting them done! I'm the eldest in my family and typically I'm the only one in the house who wasn't born with huge fluttering eyelashes, I have about three lashes. I always wear individual lashes on a night out because I feel totally naked without them. I had always wanted to try the Mink lashes and now that I have I fear I'll never be able to go back to my bald natural ones I was unfortunately born with.
I headed up to Sligo early and arrived at Life which us very easy to find, on Pearse Road before town and they have a huge blue sign outside you can't miss it!
From the second I went in the setting, the ambience and the staff were all faultless. I felt so at ease and wish I had more time before work to get more treatments! Stephanie brought me up to the room and straight away I felt like I had known her for years, we chatted so comfortably about eyelash length and size and she explained exactly how it would work and what to expect. We decided to go quite dramatic- 'go big or go home' one of my mottos, and I was dying to see the results. Stephanie had her own lashes done and they looked amazing!
During the time Stephanie was doing my eyelashes I barely felt a thing. I have quite sensitive eyes and I thought they would water easily but they were fine! We just chatted for the entire time about everything and the time flew by! I've never had these lashes done before so I didn't know what to expect at all, and when she showed me the end result I was so happy!
My eyes looked so much bigger and they looked so natural you couldn't see where the natural and false lashes met! I've seen people have Mink lashes done before and they never last very long in most cases and look very fake, but Stephanie is so brilliant I cannot recommend her highly enough. She gave me tips on how to clean them, using an oil free cleansing water and gave me a lash brush incase the tangled at night.
It's been a week since Ive gotten them done and I've had no discomfort, none falling out, no itchiness at all and they still look at good as they did the first day. I brush them twice a day (haha!) and I dont put any mascara or eyeliner on because you don't even need to they're so dark! I am totally obsessed with them, it takes me five minutes to get ready in the mornings and I feel so done up! :D They are meant to last for up to 6 weeks depending on how well you look after them, I'll keep you all posted! Here's what they look like now a week on-
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Life Hair & Beauty for inviting me down, and a special thank you to Stephanie for getting in contact with me and making such a fab job on my lashes! Aside from the fact that she is amazing at what she does she happens to be one of the loveliest girls I've ever met, I'd nearly go down again just for the chat! :p I am hooked now I reckon, so I'll be back soon girls! If you're heading to a wedding or just fancy fluttering new and full lashes hit these girls up and ask for Stephanie you will not regret it!
