5 Reasons to Get a Lash Lift

Do you dream about having long, luscious eyelashes? If so, you certainly aren't alone. A study of American women has found that three in four women think the length, thickness, or color of their eyelashes is inadequate. 

A majority of women (52%) also say that their lashes have gotten shorter or thinner over time, while 51% of women say that they use more mascara than they would like to. The good news is that there is a way to achieve incredible and long-lasting eyelashes, thanks to the increasingly popular lash lift.

In this blog post, we will highlight five great reasons to get a lash lift. These include the fact that lash lifts are low maintenance, natural-looking, budget-friendly, and much more. Let's get started!

1. Lash Lifts Are Low Maintenance 

A lash lift is a procedure designed to give a woman the appearance of fuller, thicker eyelashes without the need for extensions or any leave-on chemicals. They are a semi-permanent, all-natural option for women interested in great-looking eyelashes.

One of the reasons that lash lifts are so popular is because of how low maintenance they are. This procedure will leave you with eyelashes that require minimal aftercare.

It is recommended that you avoid using eye makeup and avoid getting them wet in the first 48 hours after the procedure. Also, avoid using serums and rubbing your eyes in the initial time after your procedure. It can take up to 48 hours for the treatment to properly set.

In terms of long-term care, there are a number of small things that you can do to ensure their longevity. For example, use waterproof mascara. You should also avoid eyelash curlers and eye masks, and using multiple skin care products and oils around the eyes.

With proper care, a lash lift can last for between four and six weeks, though this can vary depending on the type of lash life you choose and your own eyelashes.

2. They Provide a Natural Look

Compared to eyelash extensions, lash lifts provide a far more natural look, which is exactly what most women are looking for. Let's highlight the differences between both options. Simply put, a lash lift enhances the appearance of the natural lashes, whereas eyelash extensions are attached to the eyelashes. 

The procedure for a lash lift is painless and takes around 45 minutes to complete. To start, the aesthetician will separate the lower lashes from the upper lashes and then apply a serum (which gives them a lengthened, lifted look). A tint and volumizer may also be applied to enhance the effect.

On the other hand, eyelash extensions take approximately two hours to complete. There are a number of risks associated with getting eyelash extensions. These include skin irritation of the eyelid, swelling, infection of the eyelid or cornea, and temporary or permanent loss of eyelashes

If you are looking for a more natural look, we recommend that you opt for lash lifts over extensions. 

3. They Make Your Eyes Appear More Open

Lash lifts work to curl the eye lashes upwards, which makes the eyes appear more open. This helps to create a more youthful appearance, something we are all striving for!

A lash lift is a far more affordable and convenient procedure to make the eyes appear more open compared to blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). As noted above, tint is often added to a lash lift procedure, which dyes the lashes and further defines their appearance.

4. Lash Lifts Are Budget-Friendly

Compared to other eyelash services, not only do lash lifts provide a natural look that you will love, but they are also more affordable. Here at Rouge Beauty Bar, we offer lash lifts for just $55. For an even better look, you can opt for the lash lift and tint bundle, available at the reduced price of just $70.

By comparison, a full set of classic lash extensions costs $150, and fills are required every two to three weeks to maintain fullness. A classic touch-up fill costs $25. Hybrid lash extensions cost $165 and a hybrid touch-up fill costs $32.50.

Furthermore, a mega volume extension full set costs $205, and a touch-up fill costs $42.50. The bottom line here is that lash lifts are a budget-friendly option for women looking to achieve incredible-looking eyelashes at an affordable price.

5. Save Time and Money Spent on Mascara

As we have already highlighted in the introduction, a majority of women say that they use more mascara than they would actually like to. With lash lifts, you will rely less on mascara to achieve your desired look.

Not only will this save money, but it will also save time. If you are tired of having to apply mascara day after day, a lash lift procedure can give you a break of up to six weeks at a time.
