With beauty products promising fuller lashes and medications promising new lash growth, it is difficult to decide what to do with thin lashes. A lash lift may be the answer you are looking for because it enhances your current lashes without makeup or medication!
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is a process done at a salon that is reminiscent of a perm for the eyelashes. Not only does it curl lashes, but it hydrates them giving a fuller look. Not only that, but lash lifts don’t damage the original lash like extensions can, and it lasts.
How do I get a lash lift?
As your salon stylist about lash lifts and whether or not they perform the service. It takes about one hour from start to finish, and your lash artist should be able to explain their specific steps.
Generally speaking, the lashes are glued gently to a silicone shield and combed up into the desired curl. Then, a perm-like chemical is applied to the lashes. This remains for about 10 minutes, more or less.
Next, a setting solution is applied to the perm along with some hydrating oil. Some of the ingredients in this part of the process are keratin and other nourishing vitamins, which causes the lashes to thicken and look fabulous.
For 24 hours, the lashes should not get wet or have makeup applied, but then, they are very low-maintenance. Ask your lash artist about conditioning options that can better the results.
How much does it cost?
A lash lift at Salon Dolcetto will cost $60, which is much cheaper than lash extensions and leaves a person with natural lashes that look better than the false lashes some resort to when they are lacking in the lash department.
How long does it last?
Most lash lifts will last one to two months, and during that time, a person can wear mascara but may find that they don’t need it due to the enhancement. If you opt for a tint at the same time (adding color to lashes), that will last a little less than a month.
There are many options when trying to get fuller, longer, thicker lashes, but there aren’t many that offer the natural appearance of lash lifts. This can be useful for the person who regularly struggles with the appearance of their lashes, but it can also be a great idea for temporarily enhancing lashes.
If you are considering a vacation and want to be maintenance-free, a lash lift will give you a finished look without makeup. It is low maintenance and produces incredible results.
