Why Lash Lift?
Let's face it, putting on make-up everyday is time consuming. Not to mention, mascara always smudges and never fails to leave a clumpy residue on our face by the end of the day. And let's not get started about applying strip lashes. Why is it so difficult to put them on?
Enter lash lift.
Lash lift is an excellent option for anyone who is looking to cut their "getting ready" time in half, while achieving a vibrant, fresh, and beautiful look with ZERO effort. They're perfect for the woman who is always on-the-go, the traveler, the minimalist, the busy mom, working businesswoman, glam queen, and most especially the low-maintenance babes!
What does an appointment look like?
When you walk into your first lash lift, you can expect to lie down on a bed (like the kind you’d get a wax on). But, unlike a wax, you won’t actually be able to see anything, or use your eyes (and therefore, phone) for the duration of your appointment. It’s not painful, but it can be uncomfortable. Your eyes may tear a bit, but fortunately that won’t negatively impact the process.
The appointment itself comes down to three key steps:
First, silicone pads are placed on the (closed) eyelids. Your lashes are then lifted and a serum is applied to them. This first serum is used to break down the protein in the lashes. The lashes are molded onto the shield, so it breaks down the lash to take shape.
Next, a keratin-infused fixing serum is applied, which begins the process of restoring the lashes and conditioning them. The tint is applied and the silicone pads are removed.
Finally, a coat of pure keratin is applied to the lashes, which provides an extra layer of protein to strengthen and condition.
Will a lash lift damage your lashes?
Lash lifts will not damage your lashes if done properly. Getting your lashes lifted usually motivates you to grow longer lashes and take better care of them naturally. I tell my clients to hydrate their lashes after a lift with coconut oil.
How long will the results last?
Results of a lash lift and tint last about eight to twelve weeks.
Prepare for your appointment
First time lash clients
Come to your appointment without any eye makeup.
Avoid using waterproof mascara 2-3 days prior as it can leave a residue that may prevent lashes from lifting properly.
Avoid curling your natural lashes with a lash curler for 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Ensure that you do not have an eye infection or irritation of the eye area - as treatment cannot be performed until this has cleared up.
If you have had Lasik surgery, you must wait a minimum of 6 months from the time of your procedure.
If you haven’t filled out the consent form prior to your appointment, come a little early to complete it.
We can not do a Lash Lift & Tint if you currently have extensions.
Remove contact lens before appointment.
