Essential Products for High-Quality Lash Lifts
PhiPatch – To Perform Skin Reaction TestsThe PhiPatch Test is great to assess and identify any potential skin reactions that clients may have to the products used during the lash lift. Testing for contact skin reactions to thioglycolate, an ingredient in the Lifting Cream, is particularly important. This test helps avoid any product irritation, ensuring a safe and pleasant experience for your clients.
PhiFoam - Preparing the Lashes and Surrounding SkinPhiFoam is a top all-rounder product, perfect for skin preparation for a huge range of treatments. In this case, the foam thoroughly cleanses and removes any oils and impurities from the lashes and the skin in and around the treatment area. Using a brush to reach areas between the lashes allows for a thorough clean. Fresh, clean eyes and lashes allows the lifting products to work optimally.
Lashes Lifting Bio Gel Eye Patches - Holding Down Bottom LashesThese Lashes Lifting Bio Gel Eye Patches are designed to hold down the bottom lashes during the treatment. They are suitable for all skin types, ensuring comfort as well as protection for every client.
PhiLashes Tape - Accessing Innermost LashesPhiLashes Tape is a useful tool for lifting the upper eyelid, providing better access to the innermost lashes near the tear duct. It helps reach areas that may be harder to treat, ensuring even and detailed results – even for the smallest lashes!
During Treatment Tools
Lashes Lifting Silicone Shields - Acting as a Protective Barrier and Forming the Curl
Silicone Shields are essential as they act as a barrier between the various lotions, creams, and serums used in the treatment and the delicate skin of the eyelid. Available in different sizes, they cater to varying lash lengths and desired lift effects. The small size is great for clients either with short natural lashes, as well as clients who would like a more noticeable, more dramatic eyelash lift. The larger silicone shields are crafted for clients with naturally longer lashes, or clients wanting a more subtle curl to be formed.

Eyelash Analysis and Pre-treatment Considerations
Before Starting: Before the lash lift treatment is started, conducting an eyelash analysis is crucial. This analysis helps differentiate between lighter and darker natural lashes, finer and thicker lashes, and lashes of people from different ethnicities. Understanding these differences ensures that every client receives their optimal and beautiful lifted lashes. Being able to cater to different eyelash coarseness and arrangement is a great way to expand your client base, and offer lashes lifting treatments to more people!
The Lash Lift Process
Aftercare for Longer-Lasting Lifted Lashes
- Keep lashes dry for the first 24 hours to allow the lifting solution to set properly.
- Avoid using mascara for the first 24 to 48 hours to prevent interference with the lift and curl of the lashes. If clients choose to resume using mascara (for that extra-dramatic effect), recommend water-based formulas and avoid waterproof options.
- Be gentle with the lashes and avoid rubbing or touching, as it can weaken or damage the lifted lashes.
- Brush the lashes daily with a clean spoolie brush to maintain the lift and keep them separated.
- Avoid sleeping on the stomach to preserve the lifted shape of the lashes. Sleeping on the back or side helps prevent accidental damage or distortion of the newly lifted lash and curl.
- Avoid hot steamy showers or saunas, as heat and moisture can affect the lift and curl of the lashes.
- Don’t use oil-based products around the eyes, as they can break down the lash lift solution. Instead, go for oil-free alternatives for makeup removers and moisturizers.
- Avoid eyelash curlers, as they can disrupt the natural curl achieved through the lash lift.
