Lash lifts are the low-maintenance alternative to lash extensions. A lash lift is essentially a perm for your lashes that offers eye-popping results by creating a natural curl and lift to your lashes. A lash lift will typically last about 6-8 weeks. Of course, this all depends on how you take care of your lashes.
Come with a clean face and refrain from wearing any eye makeup. Thoroughly wash your eyes with soap and water. If you wear mascara on the regular, specifically waterproof mascara, it's recommended to stop use for at least 3 days prior to your appointment as it can leave a residue that prevents lashes to adhere to the adhesive.
Get ready for lots of compliments. A lash lift will enhance your eyes by making them look more open and awake. You can also ask your artist to tint your lashes after they’re lifted, for darker and thicker looking lashes. Be ready to say goodbye to your mascara and lash curler and shave some time off of your beauty routine.
All lash lifts are not created equal. Your artist can alter the 'tightness' of lash curl and add a tint to make the lashes look darker and thicker. During the consultation process, you and your artist can decide what look would best suit your eyes: a soft and natural lash curl or a tighter lash curl for a more dramatic look.
The first 24 hours are crucial. Keep your lash lift dry. No water, sweat (no heavy exercising), steam or sauna for the first 24 hours.
Keep your hands off! Try not to rub your eyes too much as you can alter the curl with excessive rubbing of the eye. Use a clean spoolie to brush your lashes daily, to keep them airy, fluffy, separated, and tangle-free.
You can wear eye makeup and mascara but avoid waterproof formulas. While using mascara isn’t necessary if you want to enhance your lift, sticking to water-based mascaras are the best option. Water-proof eye makeup can weaken the effect of your lift and leave a residue. Only use oil-free makeup removers and cleansers.
Lastly, help your lashes stay healthy. Nourish your lashes 2 to 3 times a week to keep your lashes hydrated. She recommends castor oil for keeping hairs strong.
