I’ve always said mascara would be my desert island makeup product. No matter how rushed for time I am, applying a bit of mascara instantly makes me a feel a bit better and, in my eyes, (excuse the pun) more awake looking.
LVL stands for length, volume and lift. Coupled with a lash tint your lashes look like they have mascara on them, but even better, as the treatment curls your lashes up (semi-permanently) too.
Is an LVL lash lift for you?
Well, if you want longer, fuller looking and lifted lashes, then your answer is yes.
It’s a great treatment if you want to speed up your makeup routine in the morning (don’t we all) and for those makeup-free days.
It’s very popular with brides, as who doesn’t want amazing looking lashes on their wedding day and it’s a great alternative to wearing false lashes or the faff of lash extensions.
Be warned…once you’ve had it done, you’ll likely be hooked and want your lashes to look that great all of the time!
How does an LVL Lash Lift work?
Your lashes will be pulled back onto a curved wand where a lifting cream will be applied. This will be left on for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your lashes. This will then be removed, and the setting cream will be applied for the same length of time. Once the setting cream has been removed your lashes will be tinted to the shade you requested. This part only takes 6 minutes. I always finish the treatment by applying a generous coating of Hi Brow growth and conditioning serum to help smooth down the cuticles and leave the lashes moisturised and silky. In general, the whole treatment takes about an hour.
What if I don’t want a dramatic look?
The great thing about the LVL lash treatment is you can request the look you want to achieve. A ‘J’ curl is the more dramatic lift and a ‘C’ curl is more natural.
How long does an LVL Lash Lift last?
LVL lashes last about 6-8 weeks. The lash tint will last about 4 weeks.
Can I wear mascara after I’ve had my LVL Lash Treatment?
Absolutely, just not for the first 24 hours after the treatment. You will also be advised not to get your lashes wet or have a sauna for 24 hours too.
