Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ'S)

What are lash lift rods and shields?

Lash Lift rods and shields are a soft silicone formation that are adhered to the eyelid prior to lifting and isolating the lashes into the desired position.

What is the difference between lash lifting Rods and Shields?

Lash Lifting Rods give more of a C/D curl rather than a lift. These are great for more mature clients who would prefer a subtle curl. Shields will create an L curl by giving a direct lift from the root of the lash. This is great for those clients with hooded eyes or skin laxity so the lash comes up and over the lid rather than into it.

Should I select a lash lift rod or shield for my client?

It totally depends on the client. This can totally depend on the type of lift or curl that your client is looking to receive. You will also find that the client's eye shape will also determine what formation is best suited.

How far up the rod or shield formation should the lashes reach?

The lashes should reach at least ½ way up the lash lift rod or shield to achieve a natural lift or curl. For a more dramatic lift or curl, you will want the lashes to reach at least ¾ the way up the formation. For more information, please email us at info@beautifulbrowsandlashes.us
