Like the name would suggest, an Eyelash Lift is a chemical treatment that adds a semi-permanent curl to your lashes for weeks — even months! — at a time.
Basically, a lash lift does what it says on the
tin: lifts your lashes from the root to create a natural and subtle look that will both add the illusion of length to your lashes, as well as making your eyes appear bigger. Super.
How to Prep
The only thing you need to know is to arrive at your appointment with naked lashes.
What to Expect
From beginning to end, a perm or lift is completed in seven-ish steps and lasts approximately 40 minutes.
It’s essentially a perm for your eye lashes. Your beauty technician will place silicone pads onto your eyelids to mould the shape of your eyelashes. A bonding gel will then be used to grip your lashes onto the pad in an upwards and outwards direction. Following this, a perming solution, followed by a neutralizer and (finally) a lash conditioner will be put onto your lashes.
