“I did it a week ago with a girl who rents space in a store,” she told

“When I got home after the procedure, which was in the evening, my left eye was swollen and both eyes hurt when I blinked.

“I waited for the next day in the morning and my eye felt worse, I went to work and I had to leave work because of the pain I felt.

“I sent a message to the girl explaining the situation and she told me that it was normal for me to wait two to three days.

Concerned about her eyes and the increasing burning sensation, Samantha decided to see her doctor.

She was shocked by what the medical professional told her.

Samantha said: “The doctor told me that if I had done that [waited a few days] I could even lose my sight.

“The doctor prescribed me some antibiotic drops and told me to go and remove them.

“I had already taken an eyelash application course so I knew it was not normal but I wanted to give the girl a chance.

“I went to remove them with the girl who had given me the course and she told me that the other [lash tech] did a bad job.

“It was the responsibility of the girl to return all my money and what I paid from the doctor since her application and technique were wrong, it was not my fault.”

Samantha also shared some advice on how to apply fake eyelashes, saying they must be at least “2mm separated from your skin”.
