Sh Beauty Eyelash extensionsHaving beautiful long eyelashes has always been desirable but is particularly on trend these days.
Lots of women are going for the Lash Lift , some prefer Eyelash Extensions that are put on top of their natural lashes.

Eyelash extensions are lovely and light, so glamorous and always make it easy to just wake up and make up.

They are semi permanent fibres bonded onto your natural lashes. The extensions give the wearer longer, fuller, voluminous lashes with uniformed curl. When the extensions are properly applied, they are weightless and clump free and can last for weeks.
There are a variety of lengths and thickness’s that you can choose from. A set of Silk or Mink lashes for your eye shape can be customised for you and your everyday needs. You can choose between nice and natural, a “night out” look with more volume, or a textured mix.
Lash extensions last 4-5 weeks depending on your lash cycle and how well you care for them. If you wish to continue having gorgeous lashes, then infills are required every 2-3 weeks.

Prep factor – You need to take off all traces of eye makeup, as this stops the extensions adhering correctly.SH Beauty Eyes and Eyebrows
Settle in for the long haul. Your first volume lash appointment will take about 90 minutes and unlike getting your nails or hair done, there’s nothing else you can do during this process as even talking will make your eyelids flicker. You have your eyes shut for ages so you may as well take a nice long nap. 
If you have a special event or trip coming up and want to add more drama and glamour, these will give a real boost to your look and minimise your beauty routine. 

Another alternative for enhancing your natural eyelashes by adding length and volume without damaging them is the Eyelash Lift Treatment.

If your lashes are struggling with their lack of curl, this treatment will be just perfect for you. It works also on the shorter lashes. What it does is lift your own natural lashes and you can have them tinted too, so it looks like you’ve got mascara on, but without the annoying part of smudging. You can choose a small, medium or large level of lift; depending on how much drama you’re after. Your flutter will last for around 6 to 8 weeks so it’s just perfect for a special event or a holiday and it won’t damage your eyelashes at all, or make you lose any of them. YAY…just brilliant!

The treatment takes an hour and is not painful at all. You might get the odd sting from the solution, but not a biggie. Most likely you’ll find yourself falling asleep, as while you are waiting for both solutions (the perming lotion and the fixing lotion) to work, you’ll receive a free hand or scalp massage for around 30 mins.

SH Beauty eyelash liftThe procedure begins with your therapist removing any eye make up, mascara or oil residues. A small silicon shield is then glued on each of your lids close to the lash line and your lashes are gently lifted and pressed onto the shield. A perming lotion is then applied, left to set for 15 mins and then removed. Next, neutralising lotion is applied for the same amount of time.
Lastly a tint is applied. As you don’t want to dehydrate your lashes, the tint is applied for 2-3 minutes only. I usually recommend going for the blue-black colour to add more drama and longer lasting results.
If you want the full lash tint done, ie the top and bottom lashes, the tint is left on for 10 minutes. However, I highly recommend waiting a week after the lash lift to get the full tint done.
