One way to think of a lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. Unlike a lash extension, a lash lift simply alters the shape and color of your natural lashes. “In most people, lashes grow out, rather than up. However, upward growing lashes will give a more cosmetically pleasing appearance
The appointment itself boils 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,” Imani explains. Next, a keratin-infused fixing serum is applied, which, Imani says, “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.
Not a fan of lash extensions because of the upkeep?
While lash extensions require you to be extra careful while doing anything—washing your face, sleeping a certain way, applying makeup—you don’t have to take those precautions when you have a lash lift. Upkeep includes conditioning the lashes nightly. Try coconut oil or face oil— since your lashes have been processed so just keeping them conditioned and nourished is important. Having always-curled lashes means your beauty routine is about a thousand times more low maintenance while looking a whole lot more glamorous.
