In every beauty magazine, you are sure to see recommendations for boosting or enhancing your eyelashes to reduce the amount of time you take putting on makeup and avoid the awkward next-morning or post-pool look — mascara smudge is not cute on anyone! Because lash lift is a still relatively new procedure, some people stray away from it simply because they do not understand it. So, join us as we provide all the answers to your frequently asked lash lift questions.
Why should I get a Lash Lift?
Lash Lift is a quick and easy procedure to get your lashes lifted and curled from the root to give the appearance of thicker, longer, curled lashes without upkeep or product. If you like to look like you are wearing mascara, without all the fuss, this is for you!
Can I make it last longer?
Yes! While the Lash Lift should last 6 to 8 weeks, that may vary based on the person and the way you treat your lashes! You can help promote the length of time by avoiding
- Chlorine swimming
- Excessive heat to your face
- Harsh chemicals on your eyes
- Using an eyelash curler
- Waterproof mascara
Who shouldn’t get a Lash Lift?
Lash Lift is appropriate for most people, including those who wear contacts, have had previous eye surgery, and those with short lashes. However, some conditions that may preclude you from getting it include
- Eye infections
- Recent eye surgery — within 6 months
- Allergy to the Lash Lift solution
- Very sensitive eyes
- Eye stye
- Pregnancy — first trimester
Is there any maintenance/ upkeep?
Nope! Between appointments, there is nothing that you need to do except be nice to your eyes and bat them often. To promote fabulous lashes, you should give them a good brush each day and avoid waterproof mascara. Follow these simple tips
- Wait 24 hours after the Lash Lift to wash or use any products on the eyes
- Avoid oil-based creams
- Do not rub your eyes
- Don’t use waterproof mascara
- Brush lashes with a soft lash brush once a day
Is it dangerous?
Not if you visit a salon that practices good hygiene and has qualified beauty professionals! The Lash Lift procedure itself is not dangerous at all. The silicone rods that are used keep the lashes away from your eyes while the lifting product is being used.
Will Lash Lift damage my eyelashes?
The procedure should not damage your natural eyelashes. If you have damaged eyelashes to begin with, the product may serve to dry the lashes out more but can be helped with Elleevate Keratin Mascara or Long Lashes Eyelash Enhancer. Your beauty professional will discuss the condition of your lashes prior to any procedure.
How long does it take?
The Lash Lift procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete, depending on how cooperative your lashes are. Plan to be at the salon for about an hour, and slightly longer if you have any complementary services done at the same time.
What are complementary services to Lash Lift?
Lash Lift alone will give you the fuller, curled lashes that appear longer. To enhance your look even further, you can get a lash and brow tint at the same time to help give a full, dark, thick look to both your lashes and brows. If your salon offers facials, this is a good time too!
