We love a lash lift — here’s why
The semi-permanent treatment gives you the appearance of thicker, fuller and more voluminous eyelashes by lifting and curling your lashes. But how so?
“A lash lift is a process that changes the natural shape of the lashes, lifting them up from the base to the tip to make them seem longer, thicker and curled,” qualified beauty therapist and founder of BodySense Beauty Treatments, Rosa Scialo, explains. “It’s like a perm for your eyelashes."
Curling your lashes is one of the oldest beauty tricks in the book. In fact, it dates back to the early 1900s when the first eyelash curler, called the Kurlash, hit the shelves. But it wasn’t until the 2000s that eye lash perming was offered as a treatment.
“Fast forward to 2023 and these outdated techniques have now been replaced with gentler and safer products, like the lash lift,” Rosa explains. “So you can enjoy longer curled lashes from the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep. It’s revolutionary.”
Why would you choose a lash lift?
Tired of applying mascara in the mornings? Had enough of the upkeep that comes with lash extensions? Or do you find your false eyelashes always fall out?
If you’re obsessed with darker, longer lashes, this is where a lash lift comes in to its own.
“I often get asked if I do lash extensions,” Rosa says. “And although they look lovely, some lash extensions can be quite harsh on the lashes. Plus, some people can have allergic reactions after getting lash extensions fitted because of the substances used.”
According to one piece of research, which looked into cosmetic enhancement around the eye area, the most common complication associated with eyelash extensions was allergic blepharitis — which is inflammation along the edges of the eyelid.
Rosa adds: “I think a lash lift is a good compromise and is a better alternative to falsies as it gives you a similar effect, but it’s more natural and kinder to your lashes.”
How long does it last?
Usually, a lash lift lasts for around six weeks. And you’ll be pleased to know that there is no upkeep.
Although, just remember to use an oil free makeup remover around your eyes as otherwise you’ll break down the products used on your lashes and the lift won’t last as long as it is supposed to.
