Elleebana Brow and Lash Lifting
Do you have to curl them in the morning with mascara to give your eyes a natural look? Well, we have good news for you. It is time to keep that mascara curler aside and opt for the lash lifting treatment.
Lash lifting or lash lifts is a new treatment undergone by several ladies to obtain natural eyelashes with the help of chemically created curls. It is a cosmetic enhancement thus helping add more volume and definition to your natural lashes.
During the procedure, only the top lashes are curled. To safeguard the bottom lashes, a protective barrier is used. It is placed at the waterline of the bottom lashes. It is done to ensure no bottom lashes get curled by accident. The area is then cleaned taking out dirt, oil or makeup that could hamper the process.
With the help of a gel roller applied, eyelash glue will be put onto your lids. The roller/ curler size determines the curliness of the lashes. After the roller is in place, glue is applied to the lashes to make them stick to the roller in an even layer. Here uniformity is required to get the perfect curling. Post this, the lashes will have a solution applied onto them just above the root. It will be kept for 10- 15minutes after which it will be removed and replaced by a neutralizing solution for another 10-15 minutes.
The area shall be cleaned. Finally, the last step is the application of a keratin based strengthening solution which is carried out to the newly curled lashes. It is a non-surgical process done by a beauty therapist who have received special training for it.
Note that this is not the same as eyelash extension.
Lash lifts are more defined and realistic in comparison to lash extensions. These newbies provide a vibrant look to your eyes.
