Last week I went to see Kaycie at her salon to try out a new treatment that she has just added to the list of great beauty treatments she offers, which is an improved version of an lash perm, called LVL lash lift. Last year over the christmas period, I tried eyelash extensions, and although they look good when they are fresh I just didn’t get on with them for a number of reasons (namely I picked at them when they started to grow out and nearly went bald on one eye!) so I have been looking at alternative methods to achieve naturally long and curly looking lashes.
Kaycie suggested I tried LVL lash lift and I was intrigued by the new process, having never had my eyelashes permed I thought it was worth a go, and I felt like I could do with a bit of a pampering.
I’m no beauty therapist and I don’t know the exact process, but you can see some of the steps throughout the photos, which I was taking blind whilst lying on the bed with my eyes closed. It isn’t a painful process but it was a little uncomfortable, but it lasted about 45 mins, and in between whilst we were waiting for development times, Kaycie gave me a hand and head massage and we chatted through the waiting time. She also gave me an eyebrow wax and tint whilst I was in.
I was very impressed at the result. My eyelashes actually aren’t that long but after the lash lift, it was very similar affect to having extensions on, although just not quite as long. Such a small change makes such a huge difference to my eyes, it really opened them up. Having teamed the lash lift with an eyebrow wax and tint, my face was looking all around tidier and fresher without the need for make up.
I will be going back every 6 weeks to refresh the lift, I am tempted to have some lash extensions again but they are just such an up keep, so i’m sitting on the fence for the moment!
