Lash Lift Supplies
Whether you are new to the world of lash lifts or your training, we have put together a guide containing everything you need in your lash lift kit. Don’t worry if you are not sure about what some of the supplies are as we have explained what it is and what it does to make life easy for you.
What Is a Lash Lift?
A lash lift is basically a perm for your eyelashes. It is a semi-permanent treatment that requires a top up after several weeks if you wish to maintain the lifted lash look. Usually it lasts between 6 – 8 weeks, however over this period of time the lashes will begin to gradually lose their curl. In order to make the most out of your lash lift you should give your lashes a little TLC and follow the guidance given from your lash technician.
Why Get a Lash Lift?
Lash lifts enabled you to wake up with your lashes looking full and curled. Many who don’t like the idea of eyelash extensions but want to have effortlessly gorgeous eyelashes usually go for this treatment. This is also a great option for those who want to give their eyes some definition but don’t have time to apply eye makeup in the morning.
Lash Lift Kit Must Haves:
- Lash Lift Rods
- Lash Lift Glue
- Lash Lift Lotions
- Lash Lift Nourishing Lotions
- Micro Brushes
- Eye Pads
These are great little things! Normally micro brushes are disposable, this is important as you want to avoid any cross contamination of products used on other clients. This is because a client may have an eye condition or infection and using the same tool between clients will leave to spread of the problem or infection!
You should always apply lash pads underneath your clients eyes, this is protect the lower lashes and will also prevent any excess product accidently falling on to the skin under their eyes. Lash pads are disposable so they should not be reused on another client and should always be disposed of after being used.
Lash Lift Rods
If you are new to lash lifts you are probably thinking what are these? Lash rods are very important as this is what is used to create the gorgeous curl. They are available in different sizes (usually small, medium and large) to help cater to want kind of look the client is going for. It is important that you have a variety of different sized lash rods as different eye shapes and preferences means one size doesn’t fit all. For example, those with hooded eyes will need to use a lash lift rod that creates a curl straighter than those with round eyes for example. This is because those with small eyes may experience irritation if their lashes are too curled and curl back towards their eyelid. However, you must also keep in mind that those with naturally short eyelashes it may be hard to use a lash lift rod that is any larger than a small as you may struggle to wrap the eyelashes around it.
Generally, the most commonly used lash lift rod used is a size small as this creates the most curled finish. So basically put, the smaller the lash lift rod, the tighter the curl. Just imagine putting curlers in your hair, the larger the curler the loose the curl!
Lash Lift Glue
The glue is also very important as this is what you use to stick the eyelashes to the lash lift rod. If you do not use any lash lift glue you will struggle to create a curl. To apply the lash lift glue to the rod you usually use curved tweezers to adhere the eyelashes to the lash lift rod. You must always run a patch test on any new clients or if your client is pregnant to check for any reactions or irritations. The patch test should be run 24 – 48 hours prior to the lash lift appointment. You must also make sure the lash lift glue you are using is a well trusted brand which is safe to use around your clients eye area.
Lash Lift Lotions
This is basically the perming solution. This is applied after your clients eyelashes are in place on the lash lift rod. The amount of time this lotion is left on the lashes for is dependent on what lash lift lotion you are using and you should always follow the timing instructions stated on the bottle.
No lash lift is complete without the use of setting lotion. You apply the setting lotion after removing the glue from the eyelashes as well as the rod. This is very important if your client wants their lash lift to last as long as possible. Think of the setting lotion being like hairspray, if you don’t apply hairspray to your hair after styling it won’t last as long! If you didn’t apply the setting lotion the lash lift wouldn’t last half the time it would do if you applied setting lotion.
TLC = Nourish those lashes!
Whether it is your clients very first lash lift or if they are a returning customer, you must always give those lashes a little TLC! This is because the lotions used to create those gorgeous curly lashes will dry and damage the eyelashes. After you have completed the lash lift, apply some nourishing lotion. Think of it this way, if you was to perm your hair, you would always ensure you moisturised and nourished the hair as perming dries and damages hair – your lashes are the same. Not only does the nourishing lotion add moisture back to your client’s eyelashes but it also seals the cuticles which is essential if you want to keep lashes healthy.
