Hey Brooklyn Beauties, imagine a perfect world in which morning makeup routines have been downsized to minutes rather than hours, where looking constantly fabulous at the gym or on holidays isn’t just a distant fantasy- but real life. Mayra her from Brooklyn Beauty Bar, to take you through the world of lash enhancements.
We are talking about Lash lifts & lash extensions. What are they? Who are they for? How much upkeep do they require? These are the questions you must ask in determining which lash services are best suited to you.
What are lash extensions?
Lash extensions are individual synthetic or natural fibres that are glued to each of your own natural lashes with specialised lash glue. They are semi-permanent and add length, thickness and “that mascara” look 24/7. They are customisable – meaning they can look as natural or as dramatic as you want them to. For a maintained look we recommend refills every 2-3 weeks.
– Can create the illusion of different eye shapes.
– They’ll save some serious time on your beauty routine – no mascara needed.
– Can create an ‘eyeliner’ effect.
– Avoid pesky panda eyes from mascara smudges
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is, for lack of a better word, a ‘perm’ for your lashes. This is achieved by your lashes being lifted from the root and set on a silicone pad with perming solutions that give you a permanent curl without the use of lash curlers or mascara. The effect can be longer looking, perky lashes and can last 4-6 weeks.
– Generally takes less time than the application of extensions
– An enhanced natural look without the regular maintenance of refills
– You have the option of using mascara
– Low maintenance and harmless to your lashes
Whatever lash enhancement you may choose, it’s important to follow your therapist’s aftercare instructions to get the most out of your treatment. This may include not getting them wet for the next 24 hours, no rubbing of the eyes, and no oil-based makeup removers around the eyes.
Both treatments offer amazing individual results however, it’s really dependant on your lifestyle as to which option is going to be best for you. So from the team at Brisbane’s best beauty blog, put down that mascara and book your lash treatment today or talk to one of our expert staff for more information.
