Getting ready in the morning can take a long time and if you happen to smudge your mascara it can take even longer! That is why lash lifts have become an increasingly popular beauty treatment.
Here will tell you everything you need to know about getting a lash lift, what it is, what the process involves and how long it typically takes. Choosing to opt for a lash lift instead of lash extensions will give you a much softer and more natural look.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is a treatment that involves curling your natural lashes. There are no extensions involved. Your beauty technician will examine your natural lashes as well as your eyelid shape in order to determine the best type of curl for you.
Not all lashes will give you the same results. That is why your eyelashes may turn out differently from your friend’s even though you have had the exact same treatment done.
A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that will typically last from 6-8 weeks. The exact amount of time that they will last depends on the growth cycle of your natural lashes.
What happens during a lash lift?
Although a lash lift is not as extensive a process as lash extensions (which are painstakingly and carefully applied one by one into your natural lashes) it can still make a big impact on your overall appearance.
Once you and your beauty technician have agreed on the type of curl that you are after (and that can be achieved) they will begin the process by placing protective silicone pads onto your eyelids. This will both protect the delicate skin on your lids and allow the eyelashes to absorb more of the product.
There are various pads that can be used depending on the desired curl shape.
Next, your technician will apply a gentle adhesive to your lashes by combing them upward toward the silicone pad. You are now prepped for the curling solution to be applied.
The process is relatively short as the solution should only be kept on your lashes for 5-10 minutes. This depends on how susceptible your lashes are to the curling process.
The last step is to apply a setting solution. Using this solution will help your natural lashes to keep the curl shape that you have just created, giving you better more beautiful looking lashes for as long as possible.
If you normally tint your eyelashes then that can also be done at this stage in the lash lift process.
How long does a lash lift take?
Although the solutions work very quickly the total process will take roughly one hour. This includes the consultation with your beauty technician, choosing the right curl for you and the actual process itself.
These results will last up to two months so taking a little extra time to make sure that they look perfect is definitely worth it! Simply use this time to relax and unwind.
