The thing is - you can hide your bad haircut with a few well-placed accessories. Some girls can even rock a boy cut or wear a Charlize Theron Mad Max look. As for pimples, you can simply cover them up with makeup.
However, if a Luxe Eyelash Lift goes wrong, there's nothing you can do but wait. No amount of applying the grooming solution will fix the mess. Just let your lashes rest for a few weeks and then you can give it a second try.
To make sure your next attempt with the Luxe Eyelash Lifting Kit goes right, here are the mistakes you should avoid:
1. LASHES BECOME TOO CURLED AFTER A WHILE
As a beginner, using the Luxe Eyelash Lifting Set at home is an easy and affordable way to get beautiful lashes. However, you may not get the desired results after the first use of the kit. If your eyelashes looked perfect after the treatment and then after a while they curled too much, then you rushed one of the steps.
The culprit - the glue that didn't wash out properly!
Most people believe that water ruins the eyelash lift. In some cases, this is true. The eyelashes will lose their perm if you wash your face with hot water. The second solution that is applied to the eyelashes to give them shape is the one that needs to be rinsed off thoroughly. The reason your lashes curled too much is because the glue stayed in the crevices. As it continued to dry, the shape of the lashes changed.
The good news is that this can be easily fixed. All you have to do is wipe your lashes with the cleanser, apply the conditioning lotion, and to remove the glue from the eyelid, swipe the eyelid a few times with a warm, damp cotton swab to loosen the glue. and you're good to go.
2. THE EYELASHES ARE FUSED TOGETHER
If your lashes have fused together, we're sorry to be the bearer of bad news - no amount of cleaning will fix the problem. Your only option is a keratin eyelash lift, which uses cysteine. The perming agent in this treatment removes the curl and crease from your lashes.
Cysteine raises the pH of your lashes and opens up the hair cuticles. This gently lifts and separates them. Because cysteine is activated by heat, lashes return to their natural state the moment the pressure is released. After a keratin treatment, the lashes regain their strength and are moisturized.
After a few weeks, you can try your Luxe Eyelash Lifting Kit again. This brings us to our next mistake and how you can avoid it:
3. EYELASHES ARE CROSSED AND CREASED
This mistake usually happens when the glue is removed and the second solution is applied. If glue remains, the rest of the treatment can go wrong. Here's what you should do:
- Separate the lashes into three sections when applying the glue
- Apply the solution with the wand facing up and straight
- Separate after a few seconds if you see them sticking together
- When you apply the second solution from the Luxe Eyelash Lift kit, the lashes may have shifted. So touch them again before you wipe off the glue
In most cases, it is always the glue that causes the problem. So be extra careful with it and everything will be fine.
4. THE SILICONE PADS DO NOT STICK PROPERLY
If this happens and you still go ahead with the eyelash lift, it's possible that you'll accidentally rip off your eyelashes. The silicone pads keep slipping because your eyelids weren't cleaned properly. The oil residue makes the surface slippery and this can also cause inconsistencies when applying the glue.
Another solution: you can use any tape on your eyelid and apply the glue and pads on it, this way you protect your eyelid from the glue, it is easier to apply the pads and you have more control.
5. THE CURL LOOKS UNEVEN
We've already mentioned that if the glue is not applied and removed properly, the lashes can curl too much or look wrinkled. Another mistake that will ruin the shape of your lashes is the placement of the lifting pad. If the pad is placed below the lash line, the lashes will only curl from the tips.
The pad should be placed directly on the lash line so that all lashes are curved evenly.
6. THE EYELASHES HAVE NOT LIFTED
Most people rush through the process, which is why their eyelashes don't curl properly. The two solutions that should be given extra attention and time are the glue and the perm lotion. If either of these solutions are removed too soon, the lashes will not absorb the ingredients properly.
Note: If your lashes are thick, it doesn't mean you should apply the solution too much. This would destroy the curl again.
