So you've been watching online videos of this new lash lift thing, eh?
Well you're not the only curious one. I too have been a little curious. And as a licensed master esthetician, this kind of curiosity is right up my alley.
I just recently became trained by Elleebana in lash lifting and couldn't wait to try it on a few people! Before anyone let me touch their precious lashes, they had questions. A BUNCH of questions. So I am putting all these questions and answers here to help you decide whether a lash lift is, too, your new favorite trend in beauty!
Q: What is a lash lift???- Leslee P.
A: Lash lifting takes about a half hour, we lift your lashes on a silicone rod, apply a specifically formulated solution, and wait. In the end your lashes are curled up! Results can last 6-8 weeks and are super low maintenance!
Q: How do you take care of them? Can you wash your eyes? -Tina P.
A: You can! You can wash them, put mascara on them, rub them,, anything you normally do, you can do with a lash lift. It curls the lashes up and I can even tint them to darken the blonde ends to make them appear longer!
Q: I have short eyelashes, will it still work well and look natural? -Tina P.
A: Yes! I just did my grandma and she has such little lashes! We tinted them and lifted them and she loves them!
Q: Does it do any damage to your lashes?- Chellsie F.
A: Great question! There is no damage when done properly. I have been formally trained and monitor the treatment very closely to ensure there is no fringing or damage. The solution I use has been specially formulated for eyelash use and has been under study and development for ten years, very safe!
Q: So that second picture doesn't have mascara? -Erin W.
A: Nope. No mascara. Just the lift and tint!
Q: What happens if you use mascara and makeup remover to get it off daily? What does that do to the treatment? -Tracey H.
A: The lash lift is permanent. You can put mascara on and off as you wish and it will do nothing to the lift.
Q: What is the difference between a lash lift and lash extentions? -Wendy C.
A: Hi! Great question! Lash extensions are glued individually to each lash to provide length and volume. They're great and provide awesome lash enhancement with no damage if done properly! Lash Lift uses a specially formulated series of solution lotions to permanently lift each lash so that they are curled up, opening the eye using the lashes you already have. If tinted, they can also appear darker and longer. This is also safe and doesn't damage the lash if done properly. Pros and cons? Those who are used to and love the dramatic effects of extensions may not love the results of the lift as it does not add anything to the lashline, but with lifts you are free to rub, wash, and apply mascara to them. Lash extensions can also become expensive to maintain, as a fill ($40+) every two or three weeks is recommended to keep the lashes looking their best. With lash lifts, the results last 6-8 weeks! At only $55-$65 per treatment, it is definitely the less expensive option! As always, I recommend seeing a licensed and certified professional to get either lash extensions or lifts, and check their work!
Below is a video of the treatment and how it works.
