It always feels like a treat to indulge in a little TLC in a luxury hotel – even more so when the hotel is located on the prestigious Palm Jumeirah. So with the festive season in full swing, I decided to head down to the Platinum Black Salon in the Kempinski to try out their eyelash extension service. I’m a huge fan of long lashes but being totally inept at applying them myself and with the promise that these would last around three weeks, they seemed like the perfect option. What’s more, the salon has a dedicated extension specialist Oksana so you know you’re in good hands.
Perhaps not for the fidgety, the two hour service starts with the choice of a number of different looks, ranging from au naturel to Las Vegas Show Girl. Wanting my lashes to stand out, I opted for a little something in between and laid back while Oksana went to work. While it does take a while, the application is so gentle you can literally drift off and wake looking like a whole new person. Highly recommended, either for a special occasion or a simple beauty pick-me-up.
And voila - my brand new set!
