I went to a place called EmBodi (at Wavell Heights for any locals) and Emma, the beauty therapist who applied the lashes is quite possibly one of the most awesome people I've ever met. She's lovely and chatty while staying really professional and makes you feel so at ease with the process. Emma explained everything to me, step by step so I knew what I was getting myself into and let me see the different choices on offer.
I went for medium individual lashes which looks pretty natural as far as fake lashes go. Emma told me they will last about three weeks provided that you take care not to hit them with makeup remover, cleansers etc. It's been a week, and while I've lost a few, they seem to be holding up well, and I am certainly not the most gentle person when it comes to this stuff.
