A natural lash look is always trending but sometimes your natural lashes just need a boost, or a lift. With so many choices in mascaras, growth serums, curlers, extensions, and more, you can customise how you want your eyelashes to look, even down to the lash count. All the enhancement and upkeep that comes with those lashes is a huge undertaking. Though, that isn’t necessarily true of every process. Lash lifts are an easy to maintain, durable, and natural-looking solution to all that stress.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is an enhancement of your natural lashes, using a keratin solution applied at the roots of your lashes to curl the hairs upwards. Like a hair perm, a lash lift alters the shape of your lashes to create an evenly spread, natural-looking curl.
How is it different from eyelash extensions?
An eyelash extension is the process of gluing false lashes onto your lid on top of your normal lashes. A lash lift uses a keratin serum that works with your natural lashes to add definition and shape them, it does not add extra lashes or length. Bonus: the keratin is hypoallergenic and won’t sting your eyes, as opposed to many eyelash glues.
Why get a lash lift?
While a lift does not add any length to your lashes, shaping straight or hard-to-manage eyelashes makes a huge difference in the overall appearance of your lashes. Unlike extensions, which require refills every 2-3 weeks, a lift maintains the eyelash curl for between 6-8 weeks. Lifts also create a much more natural look as opposed to synthetic eyelash extensions.
