“The eyes are one of the most powerful tools a woman can have. With one look, she can relay the most intimate message.” - J. Salaiz
Our eyes are usually the body’s most honest indicators as to how we’re feeling. It’s difficult to hide exhaustion, truth, desire, and a myriad of other emotions, thus we’ve developed ways to accentuate the feelings we want to express the most. Just during a morning makeup routine, in a matter of minutes, we can transform our tired eyes to the fierce “windows of our souls” we strive to show. The wings to every message, of course, being our lashes.
Now, there are multiple ways to achieve your lash look, but it’s all about finding what’s right for you.
You have the conventional eyelash curlers, a variety of mascaras, lash extensions, lash tinting, and lash lifts. While mascara and tinting add more color to your lashes, curling them is what gives your eyes a bigger and bolder effect. With lash lifts, you can skip the two minutes spent trying to achieve a good curl on both your eyelids – especially if your lashes are straight and stubbornly pointed downward.
What is Lash Lifting?
Think of a perm for your hair, except it’s been modified to be safe enough to apply near your eyes and it semi-permanently curls your lashes. Nothing daunting at all!
What is the Procedure?
Your aesthetician lays you down in a comfortable environment, cleans your face, has the area under your eyes protected, and applies a silicone lash curler on top of your eyelids. They then proceed to brush your lashes up onto the silicone curler and apply the perm solution to your lashes. After a few minutes, a setting solution is added to ensure the complete shaping of the lashes.
At this point, it’s optional to have your aesthetician add tinting to give your hair a little more color. That’s the wonderful thing about lash lifts – you can still use mascara!
No water or washing is allowed for your lashes until 24hrs after your appointment.
How Long Do They Last?
Lash lifts can last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Touch-ups are recommended as your lashes start naturally regrowing back into their usual shape.
Lash Lifts are your go-to if you want to utilize the wings you already have, and you can always add a little extra with some popping mascara. Without a doubt, your message is received with a lash lift from American Laser & Aesthetics Institute.
