3 TIPS ON LASH LIFTING
Lash Lifts are a simple, fast and pretty low maintenance way to enhance your eyes, so no wonder they are rapidly growing in popularity and are fast becoming one of the most sought after treatments in the beauty industry!
Put simply, a Lash Lift is increasing the appearance of length and altering the curl of the natural lashes - with the optional stage of tinting to darken them - and finishing off with some nourishment to keep the lashes beautiful and healthy. You can find this treatment under other names such as lvl lashes, lash lamination or eyelash perm. This lash curling treatment may sound easy to do, however there are some important aspects to always remember in order to perform a safe treatment and achieve amazing results time and time again!
To help you get the best out of your eyelash lift treatment and stand out from the crowd, we’ve put together our top 3 tips for an amazing Lash Lift treatment, every single time.
1. CORRECT SHIELD SIZE
When choosing the correct size of the silicone shield, you should always take into consideration the length of the client's natural lashes, as well as their eye shape (you can use different ranges of silicone shields, for example like InLei Only and Only 1) and the final effect you would like to achieve. To ensure that you choose the correct size, the lashes should cover around 70/80% of the silicone shield (as seen on the image):
If the natural lashes cover less than 70/80% of the shield, choose a smaller size. If lashes cover more than that - choose a larger size. This way you will ensure that all lashes are fitted on the shield correctly, and you don’t end up with strange kinks in the lashes!
2. LASH ALIGNMENT
In order to create a perfect lash lamination, don’t forget about the product placement! If you apply too little of the product or you don’t apply it evenly, your results may not be satisfactory. Don’t be afraid to put on a little too much product - lashes will only absorb what they need. Focus on the precision of your application, and ensure all lashes are covered evenly. Apply the product close to the roots, but not on them (around 1-2mm away), and cover a maximum of ¾ of the lash length - products should never be applied to the tips as it can cause damage, and will impact the finished look of your treatment.
