TRYING LVL LASHES FOR THE FIRST TIME | PERMING MY LASHES





When it comes to my eyelashes, I've never really given it much thought. I mean, I'd put mascara on and when I remember I use an eyelash curler. But the reality was, they weren't a focal point of my makeup routine.

Around a year and a half ago I tried eyelash extensions and I absolutely hated it. The length, the feeling, the fact I couldn't wash my eyes properly, so a week later with a lot of coconut oil I ended up removing them.

The one thing I liked about the eyelash extensions were the fact that my eyes looked wider and more awake, so when I heard about LVL lashes I knew it was something I needed to look into.

LVL lashes stand for length, volume, lift. And that's exactly what the treatment does. I recently headed to Marshall Street Spa in near Carnaby Street for my first ever LVL treatment. A week later and I can't stop raving about it to everyone. 

The treatment itself takes around 40 minutes and the results are instant. Think of LVL as a perm for your eyelashes, for the next 24 hours you are not allowed to get they eyelashes wet (like a regular hair perm). But after that, you can go about your normal life.

When you get LVL done to your lashes they also tint the lashes themselves so they appear thicker and fuller. If you're someone who loves going for that no make up look, this is the perfect treatment for you. Your lashes look really long and curled while still appearing super natural.

I was told there were two different types of LVL styles I could choose from, natural or dramatic. I went for the dramatic, but in all honesty, I don't think my lashes look dramatic. It simply means the material they curled my lashes on was smaller, meaning the lift of the lash would be more dramatic. And I am so glad I went for this one. I have never received as many compliments about my lashes.

After 24hours I decided to put on mascara to see what my lashes look like with them on and I was so impressed. It was as if I had fake lashes on without the discomfort. Lashes looked long, wispy and curled. And even better, after I removed the mascara, my lashes still looked as good as when I had just had them done.

In the photos above I have shown the before and after images with and without mascara on. As you can see the results are phenomenal. This treatment is currently £35 for an introductory price at Marshall Street Spa
