I know that lash lifting is with your own lashes. And lash extensions are individual lashes that the lady puts on you
Idk what a lash lift is.. but maybe it's just another way of saying lash perm, which I have had.. curls them up.. didnt work on my bc i have long lashes anyway but the other girls in my class (cosmo) it worked on them
I've done both! Used to get my extensions filled every 2 weeks until one time I got an awful eye infection had nothing to do with the salon my eye just got super irritated. I personally like the lift better it's more natural, cheaper and it lasts longer plus you want to look special on your wedding day so with the lift you can still add false lashes and it will enhance your look whereas if you have extensions they'll always look the same.
I’m going to probably try the lash lift soon. I got lash extensions last month and I hate them. Which is disappointing because I thought I’d love them but my eyes were really irriatated and after one night of sleeping all 10-20 lashes at the corners of my eye fell off. By 2 weeks 90% of them were gone. Huge money suck and so not worth it.
I just got my lashes lifted (and tinted) and *love* them. I haven't been wearing mascara, or really any makeup, since I got them. And they feel so much nicer than having something heavy weighing down my eyelids... I tried faux lashes during the makeup trial and felt sleepy after wearing them for an hour! I wish I had a before picture, but here is an after (with no mascara or any other makeup).

I went with the tint and lift, with a trial run a couple months before the wedding to see if I’d react to it for some reason. I’d just heard so many horror stories about extensions, plus they’re so high maintenance and so much more expensive.
