Your LVL Lash Lift Guide
Recommended by celebrity make-up artists and the likes of Chrissy Teigen showcasing it on the red carpet, LVL lashes have proven to be a beauty treatment worth obsessing about! LVL stands for length, volume and lift, and it is a system that’s been created to enhance the natural beauty of your lashes with truly lasting results.
The treatment is ideal for anyone with really straight lashes, or someone who is fed up with applying layers and layers of mascara on a daily basis, trying out eyelash strips and still not having the satisfactory and lasting results. It’s also a good idea to get them done right before your holiday, to feel a little bit more special and wake up with luscious and curled lashes every morning! Feeling curious already? Well here’s what the treatment involves.
48 hours before your LVL lash lift, you will be asked to have a patch test to make sure you don’t have allergic reaction to any of the products used during the treatment.
On the day of your treatment, it is advised to arrive for your appointment without your mascara on or any curling applied, as your lashes should be in their natural state. At the start of the treatment, any natural oils will be removed from your lashes using a gentle wipe, and to prevent the perming lotion going on the lower lash, shields will be placed on your lower eye lid.
At the next stage of the application, your eyelashes are gently combed together, whilst silicon shields are carefully placed on your upper eye lids. The perming, lifting and tinting then takes place, lifting your lashes at the root, adding volume and tinting black or brown, depending on individual preference. The whole treatment takes only 45 minutes in total, so it’s a quick and easy beauty fix to book in on your lunch break!
The effects last up to 6 weeks which means you won’t need to worry about putting mascara on or spending ages curling your lashes in the morning! However, for the special occasions, with just a tiny coat of mascara you’ll be able to achieve incredibly dramatic ‘all eyes on you’ results, as LVL lashes look fantastic with just that little bit of enhancement.
As for the aftercare, you’ll be asked to not wet your eyelashes for the next 24 hours, and avoid wearing mascara for the same length of time as the lashes will be still settling into their new shape. You’ll also be advised to avoid any heat treatments, touching or rubbing them excessively to allow for the lashes to settle.
The best news is, the treatment does not cause any damage to your natural lashes and does not require much upkeep, as some other alternatives do.
