I hate eyelash curlers and I hate using them! But I have to. My eyelashes although thick and pretty long are very straight so curlers are a must. That is until I discovered the lash lift! I read about this on Vivianna Does Makeup and was immediately hooked on the idea. So I booked myself into my local beautician to get it done.
Just so you are aware you have to have a allergy test at least 24 hours ahead. So the lash lift itself cost me £25 and took about an hour to do. They start by protecting your lower lashes with a shield and then place a “mold” on your eyelids over which your lashes will be set to give it a curl. Then they apply the perm solution (and yes this stinks) and leave that on for 15 minutes. It didn’t sting and to be honest was quite relaxing! Then they apply the setting lotion (less smelly) and leave that for a further 15 minutes.
That’s it, once you have cleaned everything off there’s nothing more to do but enjoy your beautifully lifted lashes! I think you can get an eyelash curl which is different to the lift and sounded like you could end up with lashes that a literally curled back onto your lids which clearly didn’t appeal!
The lift is meant to last between 4-8 weeks. I am in week 2 and I am loving it. Not only do my lashes looked curled I also seem to have loads more lashes. I don’t have to apply mascara (picture above with no mascara) but I do (picture below with mascara) because it makes them look super thick and amazing!!
I would highly recommend this and to be honest this may well become a regular beauty treatment for me!
