Eyelash lift & tint
An eyelash lift and tint is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of natural lashes. During the treatment, the lashes are meticulously lifted using a silicone or silicone-based shield and a perming solution, creating a semi-permanent curl that opens up the eyes. Simultaneously, a tint is applied to darken the lashes, providing a defined and mascara-like effect without the need for daily makeup application. This dual process gives the illusion of longer, more lifted lashes, adding volume and depth to the eyes. The results typically last for several weeks, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking a low-maintenance way to accentuate their natural lashes.
How long does an eyelash lift and tint last, and is there any maintenance involved?
The results of an eyelash lift and tint typically last around six to eight weeks, which is the natural growth cycle of eyelashes. There is minimal maintenance required, but it's advisable to avoid oil-based eye makeup removers and excessive moisture on the lashes for the first 24 hours after the procedure to ensure the longevity of
the lift and tint.
Is the procedure safe, and does it cause any discomfort?
The procedure is generally safe when performed by a trained and experienced technician. Clients may experience a mild tingling sensation during the application of the lifting solution, but the process is generally painless. To enhance comfort, a patch test may be conducted before the treatment to check for any allergic reactions.
Can I wear mascara or use an eyelash curler after getting an eyelash lift and tint?
While mascara and eyelash curlers can still be used after an eyelash lift and tint, many clients find that they need them less frequently due to the enhanced appearance achieved through the procedure. However, if mascara is used, it's advisable to choose a water-based, non-waterproof formula to maintain the lift, and the use of an eyelash curler is generally unnecessary given the lifted effect already achieved.
