Lash lifts have been taking the social media world by storm. Beauty bloggers everywhere have been enthusing about this simple procedure that yields such dramatic results. In fact, last year, the second most popular beauty search on Google was “What is a lash lift?”
This semi-permanent treatment lifts and curls your natural lashes to give them more definition and make them look fuller and longer. Like lash extensions, it delivers a realistic curl and beautiful upward shape, but there are no adhesives involved, making lash lifts an excellent alternative for those who are unable to receive lash extensions due to eye issues.
If your beauty goals include fuller, longer eyelashes, the lash lift could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Here’s everything you need to know about this new and buzz-worthy trend.
How Does The Lash Lift Procedure Work?
At ARDOUR Brows & Lashes, your lash lift begins with a consultation with your Ardour Artist. After confirming your aesthetic goals (e.g. how dramatic a curl you want or whether you prefer your lashes fanned out), our artists will apply a pad to your upper lid, glue your lashes to the pad, and shape them into a deeper and fuller curl. Gentle lifting and setting solutions are then applied to hold your lashes in their new and appealing position. Because they are getting a boost at the base, your eyelashes will appear longer and more defined.
Once complete, your lash lift will last an average of eight to ten weeks. Results will depend on how quickly your lashes grow and regenerate and whether you use serums that support lash growth. The treatment is not meant to be permanent, but with proper care, you can maximise the time you enjoy your new look.
What Else Should You Know?
If you wear mascara to enhance your lashes, it is recommended that you wait a minimum of 24 hours after your appointment before applying it again. Doing so will help ensure that your lift results are ideal.
If you don’t want the hassle of applying mascara on a daily basis you can pair your lash lift with a lash colour. Lash colour will accentuate and enhance the look of your lashes i.e. it will look like you’re wearing mascara but you’re not. Not only that, lash colour will last on average 3-4 weeks meaning you will save time on your morning makeup routine and free up more of your precious time.
Properly-administered treatment will not damage your lashes, provided that you wait a recommended six to eight weeks between appointments and follow proper aftercare instructions.
Lash lifts are not the same as lash perms, which provide a tighter curl and minimal lift, and Yumi lifts, which are keratin-based and deliver a straighter lift with less curl.
Few things are more striking and beautiful than a set of perfectly-curled, artistically-separate lashes. At ARDOUR Brows & Lashes, we will give your lashes the ultimate lift and can include a lash colour to intensify the look and take your appearance to the next level. Best of all, your new lashes are all yours- only better!
