What is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift is a cosmetic service that curls your lash from base to tip so you can see its full length. It is a perm for your lashes to achieve that perfect eye-opening curl. A lash lift alters the shape of your natural lashes, giving you a more pleasing appearance. Bring your lashes to their full potential is what lash lift actually does.
The highly experienced esthetician uses a tiny silicone pad and solution to boost and lift individual lashes. Yes, there are some chemical solution involves, but it is not painful but a little bit uncomfortable. And always remember to keep your eyes shut throughout the process and not let the formula get in contact with your eyes.
Are Lash Lifts Safe?
Yes, if done properly and by a licensed and experienced esthetician, the procedure is absolutely safe. The most important thing is talking with your esthetician about dos and don’ts before and after the process.
It is best to avoid using water-proof mascara or eyeliner a week before your appointment. The residue it leaves on your natural lashes will make it harder for your esthetician to style them. And please come to your appointment make-up and contacts free.
The whole process usually takes around an hour, depending on how your lashes hold the curl. If you decide to get a tint, it will take another fifteen minutes. It is not that bad, considering having an extension usually takes around two hours.
The first 48 hour is the most crucial to maintain the gorgeous effect of last lift. Avoid water, mascara, or anything that will expose your lashes to water, Avoid wearing makeup or getting your lashes wet at least 24 hours after the procedure. Most estheticians advise their clients to hydrate their lashes with coconut oil after the process.
