Eye lash perm - beauty treatment

I am currently in Thailand on a scuba diving trip, which means a lot of time in and out of water. Sounds great but it does mean that make up is a complete waste of time, which for someone like me (aka a beauty junkie) is a disaster. Whilst waterproof mascaras are a must on beach holidays, unfortunately my eye lashes are so straight that not even the super dooper, promise-to-make-your-eye-lashes-curly kind of mascaras ever do the trick. 

I recently discovered eye lash perming however!

Simply put, your eye lashes are set with an adhesive lash perming solution to make them curl. For me, with my long yet point-straight-down eye lashes (thanks mum and the oriental trait) this has been a brilliant discovery. 

It lasts about 6 weeks so even if this is going to be a permanent part of my beauty regime, this is perfect for the summer holidays! The downside is the amount of time it takes, as you'll be laying down for about 60 - 90 minutes, so take an ipod or something to listen to. Or do as I did and have a causal doze!

I absolutely love it! It is one of those beauty treatment like getting your tash waxed where others won't notice but it has made me feel heaps better going bare faced! 

I got my eye lash perm done in Fulham in a little beauty shop called Eden for £30.
