Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is a lash lift?

A semi-permanent treatment that enhances your natural lashes, making them appear fuller and longer. 

How long does it last? 

Anywhere from 6-10 weeks depending on your lash shed cycle. 

Can I wear mascara after a lift?

Absolutely! You can choose to wear Elleevate Mascara immediately after your lash lift or wait till after the first 24 hours then apply regular mascara. Remember that mascaras need to be replaced every 3 months to avoid bacteria growth and infections in your lashes/eyes.

I’m allergic to lash extensions adhesives. Can I have a lash lift?

Most reactions to lash extensions adhesives is caused by contact with the skin and through a build-up of exposure to Cyanoacrylate (the ingredient found in all lash extensions adhesives). Elleebana’s Lash Lifting products and adhesives don’t contain cyanoacrylate so the chance of a reaction to lash lifting will be slim however a patch test is the best way to determine if a client might have sensitivities.

What is the aftercare like?

For the first 24 hours after the treatment your lashes are still quite delicate and malleable. Ensuring that you are not exposing your lashes to excess steam or moisture will prevent the lash lift from dropping. 

It can be incredibly tempting to touch, play and admire your beautiful new lashes, we get it. However, try not to rub or play with your new lusciously lifted gems . Natural oils from your hands and skin can alter the structure of the lash lift and if you are playing with the lashes they may fall out prematurely. 

Using any of these products can encourage the colour of the lash tint to weaken or the lash lift to relax. 

This too may cause the lash lift to drop. 

As mentioned, the lashes are still quite delicate and malleable for the first 24 hours, try not sleeping face down  and avoid wearing an eye pillow/mask the evening of your eyelash lift.

This step is critical in keeping your lashes healthy for the duration of your lash cycle. Just like when you go to the hairdressers and have a treatment, it is a requirement that you use aftercare products to look after your luscious locks, why should our lashes be any different? 

Elleebana recommends using our famous Elleevate mascara. This incredible daily mascara not only gives you the appearance of longer, thicker and more voluminous lashes, it also aids in nourishing, protecting and strengthening your lashes. Active ingredients such as keratin, biotin and arginine make for the perfect triple threat for keeping your lashes in pristine condition between lifts.  

How should I arrive to my appointment? 

Please arrive to your appointment with no eye makeup on and come in glasses if you typically wear contact lenses. If you have never had a lash lift from me please book a patch test before your appointment. 

How long after lash extension removal can I get a lift? 

As long as your lashes are in good health, we can lift 24 hours after removal. Not sure what the health of your lashes is? Come in and I will check them out.
