Lash lift treatments are relatively new to the beauty industry but have become quite a hot trend lately. These are basically cosmetic treatments used to enhance the length and fullness of your natural eyelashes.
Lash lift is temporary perming of your eyelashes where they are trained to remain curled and not sit straight. This process is carried out by an experienced lash artist who applies silicon pads and then a solution and tint to make your lashes look lengthy and full.
While you do have extensions and falsies as alternatives, they require more maintenance and are short-term solutions in comparison to lash lifting procedures. So, if you are looking forward to cutting down your morning beauty routine, lash lifts are your way to go.
Here are four facts you should know before opting for lash lifting treatments:
#1 – Lash lifting procedure usually takes an hour or even less
The process of lash lifting starts with a technician brushing your lashes up onto a silicone curling rod and applying an eye-safe perming solution to the base of the lashes.
This solution easily breaks down the bond of your hair and curls it upwards. Then a setting solution is applied to restructure the lashes and finished off with a tinted dye from root to tip.
However, you do have to refrain from using oil-based makeup or wetting your lashes for the next 24 to 48 hours as it can disrupt the effect of the solution.
#2 – The effects last for more than a month
Unlike lash extensions, a good lash lift lasts you anywhere between six to eight weeks depending on your skin type. People with oily skin or the ones using a lot of oils on their face can experience the keratin impact losing faster.
Also, the lash cycle plays its role. The lash hairs may now have been shaped but as they shed naturally, one might need a lash re-lifting sooner.
But as for the aftercare, give a quick comb to your lashes with a mascara spoolie every morning.
#3 – There is no pain or discomfort during the process
Yes, you read that right. Anyone who undergoes this treatment often mentions how the entire experience was a soothing and hassle-free one.
Though the pictures you may come across on the internet may seem quite intimidating, the process doesn’t hurt in reality. Some people often end up falling asleep because it’s so relaxing.
You do have to keep your eyes closed. And in case yours one are little sensitive, it might be the only part you may cringe on.
#4 – It may be expensive, but worth the cost
A lash lift can range from $50 – $150, depending on your location and artist. This price is of course on a higher-end but when you add up the expense of filling traditional eyelash extensions and single using of falsies, the financial benefit of lash lifts is more than other methods.
In addition, the time taken to prep your lashes after this treatment is just negligible and the results achieved are more notable.
