The Simple Guide to Lash Lifts
Lashes have always been a hot topic when it comes to looking our best, and with compulsory mask-wearing bringing more attention to the eyes, adding that extra something to our lashes is more important than ever. Enter the ‘lash lift’, a simple, long-lasting treatment that will give you longer-looking, more dramatic lashes - without the maintenance!
Not sure whether a lash lift is right for you? This simple guide to one of the most popular beauty treatments will help you decide.
So, what’s a lash lift?
A lash lift is a simple, long-lasting treatment that gives your lashes extra lift and curl. Unlike extension, no extra lashes are added - instead, your own lashes are enhanced, just as they would be if you used an eyelash curler. The difference is that once your lashes have been lifted, they’ll last for weeks on end, and there’s no maintenance to worry about.
How does a lash lift work?
Lifting lashes is very simple, and the treatment doesn’t take long. Think of it a little like a perm. After your lashes are cleansed of makeup, they will be carefully curled on to a small mold. A special solution is applied, and left for up to fifteen minutes, to make the lashes more malleable. After cleansing, a second solution is applied to set the eyelashes in their new shape. A tint is applied to make your lashes darker and bolder, the mold comes off, and voila - your lashes are ready to go!
Is a lash lift right for me?
The great thing about lash lifts is that they work for everyone, whether you have long or short lashes. If you definitely want a big, bold look, think about extensions instead - otherwise, a lash lift is rarely a bad choice! Just be prepared to wait for 24 hours after your lift before adding mascara or getting them wet.
Advantages of a lash lift
1. They look dramatic - but also natural
If you’re a fan of the natural look, a lash lift should be your go-to treatment. There are no false lashes involved, as you’re enhancing what you already have by adding lift, curl, and tint. The result is definitely noticeable, but it’s also more subtle than extensions.
2. It’s long-lasting
A simple lash lift could last around six weeks, making it one of the most cost-effective lash treatments around. If you don’t get to the salon as much as you would like, a lash lift might just be the perfect way to achieve long-term beauty without disrupting your busy schedule.
3. It’s a great way to ease in to lash extensions
Maybe you’ve been thinking about trying lash extensions, but you’re not sure if it’s quite right for you. Instead of jumping right in, why not get your lashes lifted first? Thanks to its all-natural look, it’s an easy way to experiment with eyelash treatments without the commitment to a dramatic change in style. Think of lash lifting as a potential transition to a bigger, bolder look - without all of the commitment.
4. Lifts are low maintenance
With a lash lift, there’s no need for complicated daily maintenance. When it’s done, it’s done, leaving you free to breeze out of the door without a care in the world. If you’re the kind of person who likes to roll out of bed and get on with their day, or you just fancy something that doesn’t require a lot of effort in the morning, having your lashes lifted is a great way to pep up your look without the fuss.
5. Mascara? No problem!
These lashes might be low maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take it to the next level if you want. Since your lifted lashes are all-natural, you can use your favourite mascara to lengthen, thicken, and darken them as much as you want, without worrying about damaging them. This means a lash lift is ideal for people who want the option to switch things up.
