Steps to a Eyelash lift:
- Thorough consultation to discuss your goals and lash style (for example, would you like very raised or fanned out lashes) Based on your natural lashes and answers, the technician will pick the appropriate curl size for your eye shape.
- Cleanse the lashes
- Then a silicone forming shield gets stuck on the skin using a gentle adhesive. Adhesive is applied on the forming shield as well, then lashes are brushed up to take their shape.
- Now an eye-safe perming solution is applied. This softens the bonds in the eyelash hair which allow the curl shape to form.
- Processing time of 12-15 min
- Then, a setting solution is applied. The setting solution reforms the bonds in the eyelash hairs to “set” the new curl shape of the eyelash hairs.
Now you can wake up to beautiful curled lashes every morning for about 6-8 weeks

Caster Oil for Eyelashes
Castor oil is derived from the castor bean.
Castor beans are rich in ricinoleic acid which is very beneficial to your skin and hair. It is a natural way to grow eyelashes, eyebrows and can also help treat acne.
Castor oil nourishes, conditions and moisturizes the skin and eyelashes. In turn eyelashes could potentially grow faster, thicker and be healthier.
Although fatty acids may cause the eye to water, this is a normal reaction and is in no way harmful. To avoid this negative side effect, please take caution when applying and never over saturate. Brands of castor oil are all very similar, the quality should be the same no matter what brand you purchase. Always buy from a reputable source such as a pharmacy or salon to ensure quality, safety and shelf life (which is about 5 years).
How to Grow Eyelashes
First and foremost proper hygiene is key to any healthy surface whether it be your lashes or your hair. We have all fallen asleep after a long day and woken up the next morning with last nights mascara still crusted onto our lashes. Actively practicing proper eyelash hygiene (removing eye makeup completely before sleeping) will aid in your journey to longer, durable lashes. Once all eye-makeup is removed from the lashes this is when serums such as “lash MD” or the more natural alternative “castor oil” may be applied. As beautiful as eyelash extensions are, they can cause strain to the natural lash avoiding lash extensions or limiting professional application to only 2 times a year Our diet also impacts eyelash growth as well.
