Australian beauty guru and Go-To Skin Care founder Zoë Foster Blake is one of our favourite sources for all things beauty. Not only is the woman a highly successful beauty brand creator, but she was also a beauty editor in her previous career. To say she’s a wealth of beauty knowledge would be an understatement.

Now, Zoë has done us all a huge favour and has revealed her favourite go-to treatment for maintaining curled, subtly-defined lashes around the clock.
“After years of lash extensions, I’d forgotten all about lash lifts. But my god, what a difference they make!” Zoe wrote.
Ooh! We can see the difference, too. Not only do Zoë’s lashes look much more curled and lifted, her eyes actually appear brighter and more open thanks to the effect. It also looks like she’s had a deep brown tint applied for added definition.
Explaining why she's moving away from lash extensions, Zoë said: “I think [lash extensions] exist within hair and makeup trends. That is to say, I don’t think fluttery lash extensions work with my neutral makeup and ‘90s bob. Also took them off when I had my curly fringe. I was too much."
But, if you’re a diehard lash extension fan and not ready to give them up yet, try Zoë’s advice for a look that’s subtle but still done to ensure your look remains fresh and current.
“When I do go for lash extensions, I go for volume not length. 8-9mm max. And no lashes on very outer edges, ‘cause it drags my eye down,” Zoë wrote.
With party season now upon us, this advice couldn’t have come at a better time. If your schedule is already looking event-heavy with Christmas drinks and end-of-year soirées, investing in semi-permanent beauty treatments like a lash lift will streamline your beauty routine and have you out the door from the office to after-work events in no time.
Perfect! Less time primping, more time champagne sipping, we say!
