Everyone dreams of having long lashes. For many, this seems completely unattainable because they were born with lashes that are straight or super short, and no matter how many times they use a lash curler, they fall flat. Trust me, I totally get it. I’m one of those unfortunate people fated with straight eyelashes. It’s the worst!
This is why false lashes and extensions became even more popular in the last few years because it allows people to get that extra oomph in their lashes without all that time in the morning spent curling and layering on the mascara! What a lot of people don’t know is that those treatments can actually be damaging to your natural lashes. The glue from false lash strips is actually one of the most toxic beauty products on the market. Many contain several hazardous chemicals like paraben, ammonia and lead — all of which cause skin irritation, redness, burning and swelling. YUCK. Even extensions can cause some unwanted damage. Since they attach to your natural hairs, this treatment can sometimes cause discomfort, infection and permanent lash loss. Plus, you always go through that period of time before you get a refill where you have five extensions left on each eye and you look kind of wonky. We definitely don’t want that for you, babe!
What can you do to achieve those long, full lashes, you ask? Try a lash lift! There’s no false lashes or extensions involved. Heck, you won’t even need your eyelash curler anymore. It’s one of our favourite services here at Bare Essentials because of how natural it looks! It’s probably one of the most cost effective and safest lash treatments out there right now. With the use of a serum, your hairs get lifted from the roots to give the appearance of longer and fuller eyelashes. This treatment lasts six to eight weeks, meaning you won’t have to worry about those babies for a long time! Another perk is that water has no effect on this service after the first 24 hours, so you’re free to jump in the pool or take a long shower without losing that curl. Did you know that you can also add a tint to your lift? Toss out that mascara and let us darken those lashes!
You truly don't know how much lash you have until you get a lash lift done. I was shocked the first time I got one done. I thought, no way are those my actual lashes. Trust us, waking up with natural, long lashes is absolutely worth it. Book now!
Here’s some answers to some frequently asked questions about lash lifts:
Does the lash lift treatment hurt?
No, this procedure is completely painless. You’ll have your eyes closed the entire time and will have a chance to relax!
Will a lash lift damage my natural lashes?
Nope! At Bare Essentials, we care about you and take beauty very seriously. Each procedure is performed with the utmost care by our technicians. We use the Elleebana lash lift solution, which is high quality and designed to use around the eyes and on lashes. Therefore, no damage should be done to your eyelashes. The product doesn’t even touch your skin during the procedure, so there will be no irritation.
Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?
Absolutely, but you have to leave your lashes untouched for the first 24 hours to ensure the curl holds. Trust us though, you won’t even need mascara after this treatment. Those lashes will pop all on their own!
Can I get a lift regularly?
Yup! This treatment is safe to get done on a regular basis. However, we suggest you wait until the six to eight weeks finish before booking another appointment.
What are the post care procedures?
Keep your lashes dry and free of makeup or oil based products for 24 hours after the treatment. Also, you will want to avoid rubbing your eyes or irritating them while you have your lift.
