A few weeks ago I was chatting with my friend Kendra (super beauty goddess of all things beauty and business guru)...she is also an amazing resource and font of information btw. We got on the subject of eyelashes and services that would enhance facials. She told me about a thing I had never heard of...Lash lifts...what the heck??? I was totally intrigued. I was intrigued to the point of investing in the product AND the training...read on.
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift or lash perm uses chemicals to reshape the eyelashes into a more dramatic shape without using an eyelash curler every day. This process lasts 6-8 weeks which is the approximate life cycle of an eyelash. After the lash lift the eyelash can be tinted, which lasts 2-4 weeks depending upon facial cleanser used or whether mascara is used. Tinting can be re-applied every 2-3 weeks as needed.
The top picture is before, middle picture is after the lash lift and the bottom picture is after the lift and tint.
As you can see, the lash is much darker and more dramatic with NO FUSS!!! She woke up the next morning…yep, this is how she rolled out of bed the next morning, dreamy, right? This is a lift and tint service performed by me.
Yes, you read that correctly. Mascara that does not run, smudge or come off for 2-4 weeks! You can sleep with it on, cry with it on, rub your eyes with it on…everything with it on. This product is professionally removed.
Semi-permanent mascara adds bulk to lashes unlike a tint that just colors the lash. These pictures are from the website. (https://myabsolutebeauty.com/elleebana-spm/)
Lash Lift with tint or with Semi Permanent mascara services are a great addition to a facial and much less upkeep and cost than lash extensions. Lash extensions require a fill every 2 weeks, lash lifts last 6-8 weeks with the semi permanent mascara lasting 2-4 weeks and top and bottom lashes can be treated. Tint lasts 2-4 weeks and lashes can be retinted as needed.
Brows can also be tinted for the blingiest and lowest maintenance glammy eyes. I don't know about you, but less time in front of the mirror in the morning is more time behind a coffee cup...js.
I am trained and certified by the company that makes the product I use as well as a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Iowa.
