Prepping your Eyelashes before Using the Lash CurlerFebruary 5, 2020 0 Comment Category:
A lash lift is the simplest method for getting stunning curls and the open-eyed look that you always wanted. You can never replicate the gorgeous appeal that you get after a lash lift procedure with an eyelash curler. This is because a lash lift is done by an experienced professional and they know how to give your lashes the best curls to achieve the most beautiful look for you. However, if you are set on using an eyelash curler for some quick styling, follow the below tips to prep your lashes before the process.
Prepping your Eyelashes
You should always take good care of your eyelashes because mishandling them can lead to damages. That is why lash lift professionals use only safe solutions on your lashes to treat them before starting the treatment. When your lashes are pliable and bendable, the chances of damaging them during curling will be minimized. So to start, remove your eye makeup gently, and then wash your face with a mild cleanser. In fact, it is a good practice to go to bed completely makeup-free, every night.
When removing the eye makeup, make sure that you do not rub your eyes hastily or scrub the lash line. This can cause irritation and damage your eyelashes. So it will be better to let the makeup remover sit on your lashes for a couple of minutes to loosen it before washing it off.
You should also use a good-quality eyelash serum to keep your lashes soft and supple. The moisturizing nutrients in the eyelash serum will nourish your eyelashes, keep them healthy, and allow them to reach their full potential. Therefore, you should also make it a point to apply a lash serum in your daily schedule. Just make sure that the serum you buy does not contain any harmful agents that could damage your eyelashes in any way.
Remember that you should always curl your eyelashes using the curler before applying a quality keratin mascara. Even though some beauticians say that you can also use an eyelash curler after applying mascara, it will work better when you curl your lashes first and then apply the desired eye makeup.
This is even true for a lash lift treatment. You will need to go for the procedure makeup-free, and after the lash lift treatment, you can apply any eye makeup you want. However, you will need to wait for at least 24 – 48 hours to let the new curls set in nicely before applying any eye makeup. You may not need any kind of eye makeup at all after a lash lift though, because it perfectly enhances your natural beauty with stunning curled and lifted eyelashes.
