Great Lashes & Brows

An Instant Face Lift

Having new lashes can be a transforming experience. As Lisa Haines writes in the Irish Examiner “Unlike other treatments, the transformation is instant —  you’ll gasp with delight/disbelief that you’re the proud new owner of such immaculate brows and lashes.  Seriously, it’s like a mini-facelift in 30-minutes flat”. But getting it right is important. Great lashes are a fast way to look and feel great but following the right beauty and safety advice are essential.  Here are some of our top tips to get you started.

Face and Eye Shape

A good eyebrow shape can take years off your age, says Marie Claire.  Adding a pair of your favourite lashes to your makeup routine magically draws attention to your eyes. However, not every lash design will be the best for your eye shape.   Like many things in beauty, eyebrows are not one size fits all – and the distance between your brows can change the way your whole face looks. This is why you need to know about the right eyebrow shape that will suit you best – visit our salon and check out your options.  

Tinting

If you are looking for luscious eyelashes and well defined brows, then tinting is the quickest and easiest way to get them. The process makes eyelashes look darker, longer, and denser, without the need for mascara.  Likewise, eyebrow tinting makes brows look longer, thicker, and darker and offers added structure and volume to sparser brows. Eyebrow and lash tinting is recommended for its practical, long-lasting results and cuts down on your makeup application time.

Safe to Tint Lashes?

Beyond adding color, tinting boosts volume — an awe-inspiring moment for anyone with naturally fine brows or simply over-plucked ones — the color makes each hair more substantial. The dye coats the hair, so the diameter of each strand is bigger.  It also makes the eye lashes or brow hair look thicker and healthier. There are a few different options when it comes to lasting tinting, and you can do it either at home or at a professional salon. “But TBH, lashes are a bit too close to the eyeballs for comfort, and we’d recommend getting them professionally done over a home treatment. We love a good DIY, but our eyeballs are important” says lashes expert Robin R. Corey.
