Up until last week, I’ve never had anything done to my eyelashes before. I’m blessed with long(-ish) lashes and never felt the need to even wear false lashes. Not even on my wedding day. They’re not the thickest lashes but with mascara, they looked good enough.
Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot about the lash lift. If you’re not familiar with the process, it’s a treatment for your natural eyelashes that curls them for up to 8 weeks. I was really intrigued especially before my upcoming San Diego trip. I know I will be spending most of my days on the beach and I want to look cute without fussing with makeup. So a lash lift sounded like the perfect thing for me.
After some reach about the process and I booked an appointment and went ahead and did it! The whole thing took around 50 min and it was pain-free and shockingly relaxing. I was laying down the whole time, eyes shut, listening to relaxing music while Jane, the beautician, worked on my lashes.
No matter what I get done, feeling comfortable and at ease is key with me. Thankfully Jane was very friendly and walked me through each step of the treatment. Make sure you do your research before getting any service done and that you are comfortable with the person working on you. Also, make sure the place is clean!
So after 50 mins or so, my treatment was done and I opened my eyes to see my extremely curled long looking lashes! I honestly couldn’t believe the results. The whole eye area looked brighter and my eyes looked even bigger! I loved that outcome was still natural looking compared to falsies. Jane explained to me how I should take care of my lashes for the next 42 hours (basically no water, steam, makeup or eye cream around my eyes) and then I was done! As easy as that!
I have been rocking a mascara-free look for almost a week now and I’m loving it. So if you’re looking for enhancing your natural eyelashes, you should definitely look into lash lifting. Make sure to do your research first and pick the right place to do it. If you’ve done this treatment before I’d love to hear about your experience!
