|My natural eyelashes with nothing on|
First off I am naturally fair haired and skinned and that means that my eyelashes are naturally blonde. In the above picture you might not be able to tell so much, because years of using waterproof mascara has tinted my lashes slightly. However if you look very closely by my lashline you will see the very roots of my lashes are blonde, this always causes a problem when I am wearing makeup. The problem that it presents is that when I wear liquid eyeliner, no matter how close to my lashes I get it, there always looks to be a gap between my liner and my lashes. This will hopefully be fixed when I finally get around to getting my lashes tinted, but that will be another story for another day.

So what can I do about it?
False Eyelashes - These are really great for nights out and events, but I can't see myself wearing these day to day. Don't get me wrong there are a tonne of good everyday styles of lashes out there, but it's not for me.
Eyelash Extensions - These are individual eyelashes that get glued to your lash line, and can last 6-8 weeks, which is the standard cycle of natural lashes. However it is suggested that you get infills every 4 weeks or so to keep them looking full. Eyelash extensions are fairly expensive and can cost anything from £40-£80 for a full set.
LVL Lashes - LVL lashes are a form of treatment that includes perming the lashes to add curl, and tinting them. This treatment can cost from £30-50 and can last up to 8 weeks if looked after well. I think this is the treatment that I want to try first, mainly because it's slightly cheaper than the extensions, and it just enhances my natural lashes rather than adding to them.
Have you had any of the treatments mentioned above, let me know how you got on with them in the comments?
