Here are a few things to take into consideration when performing a Lash Lift!
What is a Lash Lift? A Lash Lift is a semi-permanent curl to your upper lashes. It lasts anywhere from 6-8 weeks! Unlike extensions, it does not add any length or volume to your natural lashes. That is why we created our Luxe Lashes Growth Serum to grow and strengthen your natural lashes.We also created our Define mascara to help darken the natural lashes to make them more noticeable! We find that these three products are all you need for transforming your natural lashes (see pic below)
Sometimes the lash lift won’t take well on some eye shapes or lashes. Here are a few reasons why and how to fix the problem!
- Whether your lashes are brittle and short or long and thick, you have to take that into consideration when applying the solutions and how long you leave the solutions on. For shorter brittle lashes, you want to leave the solutions on for a shorter amount of time (10-12min) where as with the longer and thicker lashes you want to leave on longer (15-18min).
2. PLACEMENT OF SOLUTION
- When applying lash perm solution 1 and 2, you need to make sure that you apply it only at the base of the lashes. The perming solution is a strong solution and can cause “fringing” of the lashes if applied too high up to the tips.
- Applying lashes to the mold with too much glue can create a barrier for the perm solutions and cause it not to take on the lashes. Too little glue means that the lash cannot stick to the shield or rod.
4. SHIELD OR ROD
- The lift is dependent upon whether you are using the shield or rod. Each option will give a different result and are intended to be used in alternate ways. The shields are to be used with another person whereas the rods are to be used solo. Hence the application is different for both options. We recommend lying on your back while using the shields as they are heavy for the lid and being upright while using the rod as they are lighter.
We hope this helps with improving your lash lifts. This is a great, popular lift that, when done correctly, can really transform the eye!
