So you’ve booked in for your first lash lift – and may be curious – what are we actually going to do? We recommend arriving five or ten minutes early to your first appointment, as we’ve got a comprehensive consultation form to fill out before we get you started. Arriving early also means you have time to go to the bathroom and take off any heavy eye makeup you have on – whilst we will cleanse the lashes, we need clean, dry lashes for the lifting serum to activate properly so be sure to remove eyeliner and mascara.
Your lash stylist will talk you through the options for your lift in regards to curl. We have a variety of curl rods that we can use for the lash lift procedure to give you a subtle, medium or enhanced curl. If you’re not sure, that’s totally fine – your stylist can assess your natural lashes and recommend a rod size for you.
And now the fun part! Your lash stylist will gently close your eyes and apply two collagen eye pads underneath to protect and nourish your under-eye skin. Next, they will place the rods on each eye near the lash line and carefully comb your natural lashes onto the rod. The lifting solution will be smoothed across your lashes and left to set, and then followed with a setting solution – if your lashes are thicker, this may be the longest part of the whole appointment, about 20-30 mins or so.
Once the solution has set, your lash stylist will apply a tint to darken and enhance the lashes. You’d be surprised at how much of your natural lash is actually blond or light-coloured – the tint really does make such a difference in making the lashes appear longer and thicker. After the tint is wiped off, the rods will be removed, your eye lids cleansed, and you can check out those fabulously lifted lashes – say hello to the new you!
Tip: Your lift cannot be touched or come into contact with water for 24 hours after your appointment, as the solution is still working to set your lashes long-term.
