All you girls struggling with thin, droopy or straight lashes—we’ve got something for you! And no, it isn’t a new kinda mascara or lash extensions. It’s the new lash treatment that’s ruling Instagram these days—lash lifts, which, as the name pretty much suggests, means giving your lashes a lift. If you’re tired of spending time putting mascara to lengthen and volumize your lashes or worse, applying falsies, and are looking for something more long-lasting, this is a treatment you should consider.
Lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that elongates and curls your lashes as per your requirement—whether you want them drastically curled or naturally lifted, you can easily achieve it with just one procedure.
How is it done?
The process starts with cleaning your lashes—literally no dirt or product can be stuck to your lashes before getting into the procedure. The lashes are glued to the lid in a curling manner using a silicone shield. Once they’re glued, they’re gently separated from one another by combing them up. Lash lifting focuses on naturally enhancing your lashes.
Once combed up, a perming solution is applied. The solution mainly softens the hair and makes it easier for the shape of the lash to change, in a more permanent manner. The setting lotion is applied to lock the lifted shape of the lashes.
If you’re someone with light coloured lashes, you can opt for a dark tint that is applied for them to appear blacker. This, of course, is an optional step. The lash lifting process is finished with a nourishing lotion (containing Keratin) that helps add moisture to your lashes.
If you get lash lifts done, you will see an evident curl in your lashes without them feeling heavy or weighed down. The results last for about 6 to 8 weeks and you can go for a redo post that. You can also wear mascara like you regularly would for a dramatic look. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara that gives you length and volume both. Be assured that you won’t have to turn to falsies post this treatment!
Various beauty clinics across the country offer the lash lifts treatment. Would you opt for it?
