The internet keeps coming up with creative beauty trends, which is great during a time where you can try all these things out without worrying about others seeing you. What I have decided to fixate on recently are eyebrows and eyelashes. Especially brows like this:

First ever brow service for this babe… 🤤😍😵 BROW WAX • LAMINATION • TINT I use entirely VEGAN & CRUELTY-FREE products. Brow lamination is a service that relaxes & smooths the brow hairs, so that they stand & comb into your desired direction, giving them a fuller & fluffier look! I recommend this service to anyone & EVERYONE with natural brow hairs. Brow lamination lasts for up to 6-8 weeks. Brow tinting is a service using a customized, semi-permanent, richly pigmented tint that enhances & defines the brow hairs & skin. The tint subtly stains the skin for up to a week & on the brow hairs for up to 3-4 weeks, with proper care.

Recently, I have been seeing people laminating their eyebrows with at home lash lift kits. I had to know, first of all, do lash lift kits work, and secondly, does it work on your eyebrows? I convinced my girlfriend to be my guinea pig for the former so I could try out the latter.
Here are her eyelashes before the lash lift kit. Beautiful, long, luscious, and pin-straight.
The first step in the lash lift is the glue. I tried to use the glue they sent in the kit, but it didn’t really work, so I just used lash glue that I already had.
After you put the perm on, put the plastic over top of it. This is important!! It helps keep the lashes up and curled, and I totally did not forget to do this at first.
And viola! Here are the results:
It’s not too bad for a first attempt. Knowing what I know now, I would have left the perm on for a little bit longer so that it curled more. But we’re both actually surprised with how well it turned out!
So here’s test #2, the eyebrows. I trimmed and plucked my eyebrows to the best of my ability, but there’s only so much you can do.
Then, I had my girlfriend do the same routine on my eyebrows that I did on her eyelashes. This time, we didn’t forget the plastic.
And here are the results:
It looks…exactly the same. Maybe I didn’t style my brows the right way or I just don’t have the right brows for it, but I was pretty disappointed.
Overall, it was great for the lashes but not so much for the eyebrows. The lash lift saved my girlfriend a lot of time since she usually heats up her eyelash curler with a hairdryer, and it’s a whole thing. On the other hand, it saved me 15 seconds since I no longer had to put brow gel on. I would recommend a home perm kit for people with long lashes or bushier eyebrows for the best results. But if you want to give it a shot, I say go for it!
