Dos and Don’ts of Eyelash Perming

Glamorous eyelashes that you see in the magazines are rarely the exact eyelashes you will see when you personally meet the model. If you want to know the secrets of having beautiful, dark and visible eyelashes, the best option is to learn the basics of eyelash perming.

Eyelash perming is used for people who prefer to go outside without eye make-ups. This procedure also offers men and women a more natural way of making the eyelashes more visible and plumper. Active women can benefit from eyelash perming because the curls of the eyelashes will not go away even in extreme physical conditions. Men today are also using eyelash perming to enhance appearance dramatically without an eye-catching change.

Eyelash perming can take from thirty up to forty-five minutes. For about $50 worth of perming products, the effects could last up to one or four months (depending on the brand used). For men and women who wish to darken their appearances, the perming product can be easily mixed with mild vegetable dyes.

Basic Instructions for Eyelash Perming

Before using the perming kit, make sure to remove your contact lenses or glasses and makeup by using oil-free removers. Allow the eye area to completely dry for ten minutes or more. Dip ten cotton pads in lukewarm water and squeeze excess water out.

Your eyelash perming kit should include a rod (in small, medium or large size). A small rod is ideal for people with short eyelashes, or if you desire a tighter eyelash curl. Medium rods are the most common because it is an all-around curler. Large rods, on the other hand, are appropriate for people with long eyelashes, or those who prefer loose curls.

Majority of eyelash perming kits contain a setting lotion, a perming lotion, a nourishing agent, an eye cleanser and the perming glue. The most tricky part in perming your eyelashes is applying perming glue and determining the consistency of each part. However, all steps in perming eyelashes can be done in ten minutes or less. Make sure to wear protective gloves and read the instructions before performing an eyelash perm.

Most eyelash perming kits are recommended for professional use to prevent possible accidents. It is best to have your eyelashes done from a practiced technician to ensure correct application and guarantee longer results. In cases where perming solution or glue gets into the eyes, make sure flush it with water immediately.
