What to know about lash lifts

Posted by Nima | July 26, 2021

If we’re being totally honest, there are very few of us who wouldn’t love some better eyelashes. It’s pretty common to have lashes that don’t lift very high and are very curled. It’s also very common to have light-colored lashes. If you’re trying to go for a bold look with your make up, especially with a focus on your eyes, not having full dark lashes that draw attention to your eyes is going to be a problem. This means that many people have been looking for ways to lift, curl, and darken lashes. There are some pretty common methods that you can do at home, but those aren’t always the best. That’s why so many people have turned to lash lifts to get their bold lash look. But what is a lash lift? How does it work? Why is it better than other lash treatments? These are all great questions. We’ll answer these and more in this article. Let’s get started.

What exactly are lash lifts?

Let’s start by covering some of the more basic questions about lash lifts. Mainly, what is a lash lift?

Biggest trends in make-up these days is focusing on the eyes. This means that there are a lot of people who have been spending their time and money on things like expensive mascara and eyelash extensions. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to do that stuff to get a full lashed look. Plus, those products aren’t always the best. Mascara is a pain to put on every day. It only lasts one day (if that) and runs the second you have any liquid on your face (unless you use waterproof mascara, but then that’s impossible to get off). Plus, if you forget and rub your eye, you’ll end up having a black smudge across the side of your face. That’s not fun. Eyelash extensions could be a solution, but they have their own problems. They tend to be very expensive and grow out quickly. Plus, they don’t always look very natural. That isn’t a problem for everyone, but for those who are trying to achieve the “natural look,” eyelash extensions aren’t the best choice.

So, what are lash lifts and what makes them better than mascara or lash extensions? You can think of a lash lift as a perm for your eyelashes. It uses chemicals and what is essentially a mini curling wand to lift and curl your eyelashes semi-permanently. The benefit of this is that it does the job of mascara without having to put on mascara. It’s a mascara look without the mascara mess. Pretty great, right? Plus, it looks much more natural looking than eyelash extensions. Another benefit of lash lifts over lash extensions is that when your eyelashes grow out, they don’t just fall into your eye like eyelash extensions. They just grow like they normally do and as they grow the do loose the lift and the curl. This can take anywhere between six to eight weeks. At that point you will need to get the lash lift redone if you want that look again. This is not unlike lash extensions. However, you with a lash lift, you won’t have to do deal with the fake lashes falling into your eyes.

Where can I get lash lifts in the Salt Lake area?

So, now that you know what a lash lift is, it’s not hard to see why people want them as much as they do. You may be looking to get a lash lift done yourself.

While Salt Lake City definitely is a city, it is also definitely a small city (after all, its nickname among us locals is, “Small Lake City”).
