Lash Lifting 411
Lash lift Prep, Expectations & Aftercare
Arrive without ANY eye makeup on- think squeaky clean lashes
Have your contacts removed if applicable
Be sure to discontinue the use of eyelash growth serum at least 2 days prior to your appt.
Discontinue the use of waterproof mascara WEEKS before- that stuff never comes off!
STOP buying waterproof mascara ;)
Be sure you’ve had your lash extensions removed at least a month prior to getting a lash lift
Look over and understand the contraindications prior to your appt. to be sure you are a good candidate for a lash lift
You lose 1-5 lashes a day- your lashes do NOT look the same for the entirety of the lift
Your lifted lashes will shed, and new, straight lashes will grow in, gradually changing the shape of your lift
Your lash lift may not last as long every time you get them done- depends on where you are in your lash growth cycle- generally anywhere between 6-8, up to 12 weeks
If you have a lot of new lashes growing in, your lift will grow out quickly
If you use a growth serum, do NOT use it everyday- 2-3 times weekly for maintenance ONLY
If you use a lash growth serum, do NOT just stop cold turkey- you will shed A LOT.
If you use a lash growth serum, do NOT use it everyday- your lift will grow out quickly and MESSY
Understand that you will have a couple weeks of lifted and straight lashes mixed together
If you must use a lash curler to make applying mascara easier during this time, do it CAREFULLY
You cannot get your lashes lifted as soon as you notice they are not perfectly lifted anymore-
This is a chemical service and you need to preserve the integrity of your lashes.
Allow at least 6-8 weeks between appointments
Within the first 24 hours- Do not get your lashes wet, avoiding heat and steam
Do not apply mascara
Do not touch or rub them
Do not use lash growth serums, creams, or oils
Avoid sleeping on your face
Begin using your Elleeplex keratin lash gel (morning or night, or BOTH!)
You can also opt for the Elleevate keratin black mascara for daily wear
After 24 hours, you may resume normal skincare routine-
Do try to stay away from heavy oils as they may weigh your lashes down.
