I was recently asked what the secrets to my daily make-up routine were for a magazine feature, and the truth of the matter is- I have the most incredible false-eyelash-expert-lady on the planet. If you’ve been here with me since the beginning, you know that I’ve written about Claire Linnette of Eyelush a few times already, but this time is extra special.
There are a lot of people out there who say that putting on false eyelashes will ruin your real ones- and the truth is- they are RIGHT… IF you go to the wrong person and use the wrong lashes. I’ve been seeing Claire for 4 YEARS and my actual lashes are still in tact. I know this because when I go to Los Angeles for an extended time, I refuse to see anyone there, and I can see the condition of the lashes sans extensions. It seriously is so worth it to see a professional with super high standards. It’s really important to avoid those eyelash bars that will give you short term lash fix, but major lash damage later…I’ve seen it happen on girlfriends. Just don’t do it. Reversing the damage caused by lash extensions isn’t impossible though, there are plenty of lash serums from companies like Xlash that can help.
Claire uses special Russian Volume lashes. The Russian Volume technique provides a way of giving extra volume without overweighing or damaging your natural lashes. Individual lash-to-lash extensions are applied like other brands, however the Russian Volume technique sees between 2-6 much finer/lighter lashes applied (instead of single thicker extensions) which means they look better and are so much better for your actual lashes. Oh and also they also look pretty darn amazing. Imagine having 6 lashes for every 1!!! Claire makes it happen.
Not only are Claire’s eyelashes the best around, they will also change your life. I’m serious. Claire’s appointments last about an hour and half for my top-ups (it takes about 2 hours for your first full set) which I have religiously booked in every three weeks, on the dot. Sounds like a time commitment? Think again. Having these eyelashes means you need to wear a lot less make-up. Claire’s Russian Volume eyelashes, a little tinted moisturizer and lipstick is all you need for pretty much any day-time occasion. And if you take your eyelashes on holiday, especially a beach-related one, you don’t need anything but your lashes and a tan. Trust me on this one. Having the extensions are a total time-saver. You don’t even have to get Russian Volume lashes like me, you could always get classic eyelash extensions for a more natural look. It’s up to you. If I do ever want more for an event, I just ask Claire to go a little bit longer or a little bit fuller and I can always see a dramatic difference.
Ok so I told you this post would be special, and it is. Book with Claire, tell her you’ve read about her here on AG, and she’ll offer you a really special 10% discount on your first appointment.
Claire can come to your home, or out of one of the beauty rooms at Neville Salon on Pont Street.
