Everything You Need to Know About A Lash Lift

Our favorite “I woke up like this” secret.

Once upon a time, there were many of us in a brief love affair with eyelash extensions. Waking up with long, thick, fluttering lashes without even a hint of makeup was a huge confidence boost…but it came with a cost. The fills were pricey themselves, but the integrity of our lashes paid the ultimate price. With the frequent touch ups, and heavy adhesives, our natural lashes were left looking broken and brittle. Enter: Lash Lift!

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift service itself includes applying a perming serum to the lashes to hold them against a silicone rod for a certain amount of time while they lift. This process curls your lash from base to tip so you’re able to see the full length. 

What does the process look like?

Every treatment begins with a thorough consultation to discuss what kind of result you are looking to achieve. Based on this information and the length of your lashes, your provider will choose a curling rod specifically for you. The area of the eye is cleansed, and the rod is placed onto your eyelids. The natural lashes are curled over and attached to the rod with an adhesive to set the lashes before a lifting solution is applied. This allows the lashes to mold around the curling rod. Then, a setting lotion is applied to set the shape. The process should take between 45-60 minutes!

How long does it last?

Typically, the results from a lash lift will ast 4 to 6 weeks based on the care you take and how quickly your eyelashes grow. It’s important to know that you should avoid mascara and water on your lashes for 24 hours to make sure they’re able to lift correctly and set into the desired shape. For post-treatment care we recommend castor oil to nourish and condition. Apply with these disposable spoolie brushes.

How much does it cost?

The cost of this service ranges depending on your location and your provider. At santāl skin, we charge $70 for a lash lift and $95 for lash lift + tint. Adding a tint to your lash lift service is the perfect way to achieve the effortless “awake” look without any makeup at all!

Do lash lifts work on all lashes?

While lash lifts can work on both long and short lashes, the best results come from lashes that are at least 4mm in length. Your provider can tell you if she believes you are a good candidate! If your lashes are too short, and we don’t wholeheartedly feel you would get the best result, we may recommend our go-to lash growing product, Revitalash. Applying this growth serum to your lashes before bedtime nourishes and strengthens your natural lashes to help them grow. This one-of-a-kind ophthalmologist-developed formula uses powerful peptides and botanicals to protect against breakage and brittleness while improving flexibility, moisture, and shine for bold, beautiful, lush lashes.
