Is a lash perm better than using a lash curler? SELF Magazine tries Eyelash Perm
Surprisingly, the process didn’t hurt at all. I thought there would be more pulling on the lashes, but it was incredibly gentle from start to finish.
The curve was really natural looking, and there was not a single lash left behind. Every hair curved up evenly, which is nearly impossible to achieve with just mascara or even a eyelash curler.
My lashes were so curly that it gave the opposite of the lengthening effect I was going for. But if you use an eyelash curler religiously, I’d suggest trying a lash perm to shave time off your morning makeup routine.
SHIZUKA new york Day Spa’s Eyelash Perm is proven to create a lasting curl in the most gentle way possible. Especially if you have straight lashes, you’ll be surprised how much of a difference you can see.
We have 3 options for eyelash treatment. Eyelash Perm, Eyelash Extensions, and Eyelash Tinting. Each treatments are customizable to enhance your eye impression.
If you’re not sure which eyelash treatment is the best for you, we have recommendations per eyelash type: Eyelash Treatment FAQ

Tips from beauty experts for fuller eye lashes
Eyes are one of the big part of your impression.
When we talk with someone, we tend to look at someone’s eyes. Shape of our eyes are all different, and it makes it unique about one. Since we’re looking at it for a long time, it tend to remain as one’s impression.
Here are tips from SHIZUKA new york’s beauty experts for fuller eye lashes!
Take off makeup before bed
Taking off your make up before bed is one of the most important thing to protect your eyes and to keep your eyelashes healthy. It could prevent eye irritation, eye infection, damaging eyelashes, and also bloodshot eyes. It’s better for your skin as well.
Keep your mascara clean
- Change your mascara every 3 to 5 months. Liquid or creamy makeup can harbor bacteria more easily, and mascara is considered as one. Replacing your mascara every 3 to 5 months can help to keep your mascara clean. If its’ dried or if it start to have a strange smell, stop using and get a new one.
- Don’t share. Sharing mascara with friends can transfer bacteria and cause eye infection.
- Don’t pump the mascara wand. It makes it dry out easily.
The most common injury related to cosmetics
Scratching eyes with a mascara wand is the most common injury related to cosmetics. It can lead to an eye infection, eyelash loss, or even blindness. Sometimes you might see someone applying mascara on a train or a car when it’s moving. Maybe she is busy, but this is dangerous.
Try to apply mascara in a relaxing environment in front of a mirror. This way it’s safe, and your eye lashes will look nicer, fuller, and will stay healthier this way.
Tips for Fuller Lashes
An eyelash extension is a synthetic eyelash that is attached to your natural lash using a specialized adhesive. Eyelash Extensions at SHIZUKA new york will add drama to lashes that are thin and light-colored without the need for mascara. Eyelash extensions also carry a slight curl which adds a natural-looking openness to your eyes.
