Wake up to fuller lashes – and ditch the mascara – when you get yours done at Private Room, where lash extensions start from $108, and touch-ups from $30. The beauty salon imports its synthetic lashes from Korea, and achieving the doe-eyed look’s only an hour-long session (or less) away. If you’re looking for yet bolder peepers, try the Japanese or Miracle Eyelash perm ($45-$57).

Completing the range of services within Private Room’s intimate space at its Tanjong Pagar outlet are options such as Brazilian waxing (from $22 for the bikini line), Korean soft brows ($888) and manis and pedis (from $7 for an express manicure).

Rebecca Liew recommends the… Flat lash extension ($128). Unlike natural eyelash extension ($108), these adhere to the eyelids for longer and create more volume. You’re also given the option of going all-out or toning things down with a more natural look, which is what I requested. Lashes come in diameters of 0.15mm and 0.20mm, and range from 8 to 16mm in length – but mine were kept to between 9 to 11mm, given that I normally wear glasses.

The 40-minute process was quick and relatively painless, apart from some stinging in the eyes caused by the glue. It’s perfectly normal, though, and you’re given a lash brush after to maintain the natural curl of your new, volumised lashes. Bat them as much as you can – around half of the lashes drop off within the first week, and the rest after a month.
