Every year, I often try to find a way for personal growth and development. I believe it is important for ones to often improve themselves to keep up in our fast pace society. This year, I decided to take on a skill. As mentioned in my Insta Stories, I am now officially a Certified Lash Lift Technician.
What in the world is that?!?!
Let me explain…. Beauty perks has come a long way. Eyelash treatments especially has taken over the world by a storm. As the trend from fake lashes to eyelash extensions and now the revolutionary Lash Lifting. It all brings a whole new meaning to the eyes.
I had my fair share of eyelash extensions done the past couple of months (during the hype.. that is) after having them done over at Fabulash (Arcadia). Needless to say… I LOVED IT!!! My lashes were definitely on point… long, curvy, sexy looking 24/7. However, after a couple of rounds of having them redone (mind you, extension lashes starts dropping quite a bit after a week) and as much as I love having luscious long sexy curvy looking lashes, I hate the fact that my own natural eyelashes were also compromised. After a couple of months of having them done and redone… I began to notice my lashes were shorter and much less than its usual self.
As we all know, our natural lashes will drop (I mean, it is suppose to drop) but I somehow feel that my natural lashes health was also compromised in those few months that I had them done. Eventually, I decided to remove them all and leave them bare to let them gain back their strength and length again.
Reality is NO MATTER HOW WE ARE TOLD OUR LASHES IS NOT AFFECTED.. IT EVENTUALLY WILL BE IF YOU DO IT CONSTANTLY.
Or maybe, my lashes is simply just not so suitable to have lash extensions done.
I always love natural looking lashes and before I heard of extensions.. my metal eyelash curler and mascara was always a MUST HAVE in my daily routine. That was until Lash Lifting came into my world. Lash Lifting gave me a whole new perspective of how our natural looking lashes can look amazing with just a simple lift (almost like a perm.. but wayyy curvier and much more natural looking).
Let me be a bit more specific.
What is the difference between Lash Lift and Perm? Well, it is technically the same effect of having your eyes shout WOW and giving them lashes that extra oomph. However, the technique used for a lash perm uses a cylinder rod whereas a lash lift uses a silicone. I personally believe that Lash Perm works better on those with longer lashes as the curling shortens them rather than elongating them. (A little bit like curly fries). HOWEVER, Lash lifts are suitable for all lash lengths (yes.. this means if you have short straight looking lashes, you are going to LOVE this results) due to the ability to ‘lift’ the natural lashes from the root using different sized silicone. This makes them more inclusive for women with shorter lashes who have always turned to extensions as well.
The results is all so natural. That I can’t stress how much I love it. Did I also mention, it last way much more longer than lash extensions. A good 2-3 months that is!!
In a fast-paced industry, lash lifts are now one of the hottest trends with beauty professionals all over the country making sure it’s on their service lists. BUT please beware as a good technician and brand of products brings you a long way. My favourite Brand by far (after many many rounds of survey) is YUMI Lash Lift (originally from France). A widely established and well known brand throughout the globe. This method enhances the eyelashes naturally at the same time giving it a simple hint of dye to bring out the eyes that bit further. (Trust me, it makes so much of a difference).
