Getting a lash lift was perhaps the best thing I did this year!

I don’t know if you know, but lashes are EV-ER-Y-THING and I am a lash lovah for sure! I used to be hot on lash extensions but the maintenance and upkeep got to be, shall we say, a wee bit expensive. That’s when I learned all about lash boosting serums that strengthen, lengthen, and volumize your natural lashes and now, a lash lift! Whaaat?!

What’s a lash lift, you say? Darling, it was brand new to me too until my friend Jeni, who may be more of a beauty babe than I am, introduced me to the process. A lash lift is essentially a perm for your lashes that enhances your natural lash line by reshaping and bringing lashes forward and up for a much fuller, longer look.

Jeni’s results were incredible and I was instantly sold.

In honor of National Lash Day (February 19) I’m sharing my first lash lift experience with you. I visited the folks at Amazing Lash Studio here in New York!

Lash Lift Process

As I mentioned, the lash lift is a perm for your lashes and it is a semi-permanent procedure. Meaning, it lasts a while (8-12 weeks) but not forever. It all depends on your natural lash growth pattern. The perm produces curl so you don’t have to curl your lashes every day. We love you Shu Uemura but so long sucker!

I, however, don’t own an eyelash curler because my lashes are super curly to begin with. And that’s why I needed some help. I’d been using my must-have R+F Lash Boost Serum for several weeks with great results but because my lashes are so curly, no one could see how much they’d grown. The curl sent them backward and they ended up looking fuller but not longer. Sigh.

That all ended with my Amazing Lash treatment.

In just over an hour, my lashes were pop, pop, popping all over the place! Here’s how it works:

Your rigorously trained Amazing Lash technician will protect your under eye area and apply tape to hold your lids in place. Then, on your upper lid, she’ll place a silicone rod for the shape/curl pattern you want and affix your lashes to the rod. Then she’ll apply the perm solution to your lashes in three steps.

The whole process took about 60 minutes for me. I’m a fidgeter so my tech had to spend a little extra time with me. I know, I’m special. Shh!

Lash Lift Results

The results are stunning! I couldn’t be happier with them. Now all my diligent serum application has finally paid off with longer, more luscious lashes that everyone can see!

And the best part is, I don’t have to apply mascara to get that wow factor. I get compliments on my bare lashes all the time! Check ’em out!

Fancy! AF!

Caring For Your Lashes After A Lift

Care and maintenance of your lash lift is pretty simple. You must keep your eyelashes dry for the first 24 hours after treatment. Same as if you’d permed the hair on your head. Then, your only restriction is to cease using waterproof mascara which isn’t great for lashes anyway so no big loss. That’s it. You can apply your eyelash serum as normal after the 24-hour mark.

    Wow..Amazing result ! I also use lash lift kit of Dolly’s lash brand and as i used both the lash lift and extension so also in my opinion lash lift is far better than extensions.

      I agree! The extensions can be great but they’re SO expensive!

    Several of my friends do lash lifts and swear by them. I have been thinking about doing it for myself too.

    I have never heard of a lash lift before! Your are beautiful regardless, but the results look amazing!

  5. 17 July 2019 / 3:47 AM

    I’ve never even heard of a lash lift, lol! But it sounds amazing… I’d like to give it a try!

  6. 17 July 2019 / 2:33 AM

    This is the first time I am hearing about a lash lift. But I don’t see a reason why not to try it. And it is good to know that after maintenance care is also quite simple.

    I’ve never heard of a lash lift before but it sounds amazing! I’d love to see what a difference it can make for me.

    I have heard of lash lifts, but I have never tried one. I feel like this would be so awesome for my lashes!

  9. 16 July 2019 / 8:12 PM

    The last lift really looks good it adds glow to the eyes. I’ve never tried anything like this I just add mascara to my lashes but this is great since it’s your own natural lashes. I will check around my area who offer this service. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve never heard of a lash lift, but I do use a serum on my lashes every night. The lash serum has been AMAZING for my lashes. I’m curious to try this lash lift.

  11. 16 July 2019 / 1:11 PM

    I had never heard of a lash lift before this, either! My lashes could use help some days. I’ve also heard so many good things about the lash boost serum but haven’t tried it yet.

  12. 16 July 2019 / 11:40 AM

    A lash lift? Never heard of it. I don’t know why I’m suprised because you can just about lift anything. I truly may consider this. My lashes are curly and I typically add mascara only for it to make my eyes red. I love how they look on you.

  13. 16 July 2019 / 10:03 AM

    OK, I have totally never heard of a lash lift! (though I guess attempting to crimp them at home is the DIY equivalent) – This procedure looks much more effective, though!
