During this worldwide pandemic, we have all seen videos trending on Tiktok and Youtube of people performing their own lash lift procedures at home. These short clips have made the process of performing a lash lift as simple and it is something that can be done by anyone with a kit and a user manual.
But in reality, improper use or even a miscalculation of the time could result with damaged lashes. Lash technicians go thru lessons and extensive practices to have a better understanding of lash lifts. Failure to do so could result in complications including mild to severe eye irritations, infections in and around the eye, and damage or loss of eyesight.
When you're working around the eyes, it is important to remember that this is an extremely sensitive area. Lash technicians are trained in services such as lash lifts and have spent time learning learning the proper steps of applying and removing the solutions. If you're performing these procedures at home, you are most likely working in a space that is not properly sanitized and without access to the tools that a lash technician would have.
While we understand the temptation to give yourself a lash lift, but we don't want anything to go wrong! So we recommend turning to the professionals when it comes to all things lashes. If you feel the need to amp up your lashes at home, here are some recommendations for you:
Try a Lash & Brow Serum
Use a heated lash curler and volumizing mascara
Practice using fake lashes (Strip lash)
