THE EYELASH PERM (AKA LASH LIFT OR EYELASH LIFT)
Upturned eyelashes look longer than very straight ones. Putting a kink at the lash line of your fringe not only grants you fuller, longer-looking lashes, it helps you fake a wide-eyed doe look, too. For those that do not want the upkeep of eyelash extensions or want a very natural look, an eyelash perm and tint is a perfect alternative.
How is a lash lift performed?
First, lashes are coated with a special adhesive and wrapped over a curling device; this holds the lashes in the desired curled lash position that we wish to achieve.
While your eyes are closed, an eyelash perming cream is applied to your eyelashes with a tiny brush. This sets for about 10 minutes.
A setting lotion is then applied and optional tint. Finally a nourishing oil is applied and left on your lashes.
The whole process takes a little less than an hour.
The curl in your lashes will last anywhere from four weeks to three months. As your lashes grow and fall out (the life cycle of lashes is about 60 to 120 days), the effects become less noticeable. The tint can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks.
