Hello, again my beauties!
I posted another Instagram poll asking if any of you wanted to read about my lash lifts and a lot of you said yes! So here I am showing you the process, results, price and my overall experience. To get started let’s begin with the…
Why lash lifts? I will tell you why. I was born with naturally straight eyelashes, and eyelash curlers do not cut it for me. They keep my eyelashes barely curled for about an hour and then go back to being straight. Lash extensions cost way more and need to be filled in every 3 weeks. Also, I wanted an easy fix which looked more natural and was an easy upkeep. Overall, I wanted to just wake up in the morning and have my eyelashes be ready to go.

I am from a small city called Sault Ste Marie and there were no salons that did lash lifts and tints. But then I heard about this amazing place called the I Brow bar. She always does an awesome job on my lashes and she is so incredibly kind. 10/10 would recommend. The entire process costs $60 and lasts for 2 months (6-8 weeks), which is a great deal. I don’t personally have any photos of the process but I will walk you through it. #notsponsored

Now, I ain’t no esthetician but I will walk you through the basics of what I know. A lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. They use a chemical solution to lift your natural eyelashes to your specific style and tint. For those of you who don’t like the idea of chemicals being so close to your eyes like I did, know this; your eyelashes all fall out in 2 months and new ones grow back in. It’s not like when you perm your hair and it takes soooo long to grow out and chop off. Also, if you worry about the effects to your lashline, don’t get it done every 2 months. I only get it done every time I go home so about 3-4 times a year. The entire process takes about 45 minutes and is not painful at all. The woman I go to uses silicon domed shields for the process and gives me the option of choosing between a black tint or a blue/black tint. Lastly, for those wondering, I have never had any reactions or anything bad happen, and my eyelashes are still intact, long and healthy.

What you should do Pre and Post Tint
If you plan on getting your lashes lifted you should try to avoid wearing mascara or eyeliner the day before to ensure there is no residue on your eyelashes. Basically, come in makeup free and make the process easier for your esthetician. Also if you have contacts, I would suggest taking them out before this treatment. After the actual lift, you do not need to do anything! There is 0 maintenance. Just make sure you wait 24 hours before getting them wet because they are like a perm. I also find that it lasts longer if you avoid rubbing your eyes (because this can make the lashes fall out). And last but not least, yes, you can wear mascara to heighten the effects of your gorgeous new eyelash look!
