First, we need to clean the lashes clean from dirt and makeup.
You can do that with protein cotton wool. In that wa we will move all the greasiness from your eyelashes and lids.

Then, we paste silicon pillow on the upper lid. We choose them depending on the natural length of the lashes and toward the wanted effect.
Before the treatment, you should check the products which your beautician uses to make sure you aren’t allergic to something.
Be careful, because the eyes are the most sensitive organ. So it’s important what kind of products are safe for your eyes.

It this period, you can apply color to your eyelashes. If you choose that, then the botox for lashes will be applied too.
After the treatment, it’s necessary to apply lotion with nourishing oil or lotion. It will soften your lashes and enable the easier silicon moving.
Keratin moves from the lashes with cotton ear sticks.

Lash Lift Before and After
Here are few photos of lashes before and after lash lift treatment.
Lash Lift vs Extensions
Lash lift looks more natural then extensions. Both treatments are used to make lashes longer and fuller but they work differently.
In extensions, we glue false eyelash or bunch of the eyelashes to the root of natural lashes. In that wa we extend them and give them the density.
Lash lift achieves the effect of curled eyelashes without artificial additives.
The effect of extension can be from natural to ultra thick.
Extensions highlight eyes, have the effect of mascara and replace daily use of make-up.
Applying extensions is a job for a professional artist. So don’t economize, otherwise, you wouldn’t want your lashes to look clumpy.
When you have extensions, you don’t need to use mascara anymore. It will look like you have mascara 24 hours a day.
In this way, you will save your time. But if you do not like artificial effect on the eyes, a better choice for you is the Lash Lift. It will also save you time because you will not have to use an eyelash curler anymore.
Lash Lift vs Lash Perm
Lash perms are perfect for women with long eyelashes and wide open eyes.
This process will slightly reduce the length of eyelashes. If you have short eyelashes, you could be disappointed with this treatment.
The difference between lash lift and lash perm is that the lash lift will lift your lashes up and the lash perm will curl your lashes.
