What is a Lash Lift and why is everybody talking about it?



If you haven’t heard, Lash Lifts are the latest crave. They have grown in popularity over the last few years, and we think it’s a trend that will be long lasting. With a legion of celebrity fans, this low maintenance treatment can transform your eyes, so much so that Lash Lift treatments are considered a natural alternative to lash extensions.

Before the popularity of the Lash Lift grew, Lash Extensions were the go-to for longer, thinker lashes, but as they say, out with the old and in with the new.

For today’s blog post, we thought we would give you a little run down on all things Lash Lifts, from the benefits to a quick step by step process of how Nails & Brows Mayfair uses the “YUMI Lash Lift & Tint to create stunning lashes. The treatment is pain free, relaxing and takes about 60 minutes to complete.

How To Do A Lash Lift: Our Procedure

  1. Prior to the Lash Lift treatment, you must have an allergy test to ensure that you are not allergic to the products used. The allergy test must be done at least 48hrs before the treatment.
  2. Contact lenses must be removed prior to the treatment and we advise clients not to wear mascara to their appointment.
  3. Once the allergy test is out the way, it’s quite straightforward from then, you lie back, relax, and let our Lash Specialist work her magic.
  4. She will cleanse your lashes to ensure all eye makeup is removed and lash shields will be placed onto the eyelids. The lashes are then brushed up, onto the lash shields using a special lash brush and lash adhesive applied to secure them in place followed by a lifting solution.
  5. After 10-15 minutes, the lifting solution is wiped away, then a setting lotion is brushed onto the lashes to set the lifting effects achieved.
  6. The setting lotion is left on for a further 10-15 minutes, and after removing it a lash tint is carried out. The most popular colour used at our boutique is blue black.
  7. Heading into the final stage of the process, a nourishing oil is applied to ensure the lashes stay nourished, hydrated, and healthy. And that’s about it, a pretty simple process, with a beautiful outcome.

What Are The Benefits Of A Lash Lift?
