If you are tired of applying mascara every day when rushing out in the morning only to come back and remove your eye makeup again in the evening. Here is a longer-lasting solution for you; eyelash lift and tint. Lash lifts and tints have become very popular as a quick, painless way of giving your eyes a brighter, woke look. Unlike your constant touch-ups with your mascara during the day, with a lash lift and tint, you no longer have to worry about your mascara wearing off. At Signature Skin Care, we safely create stunning lashes that last long, leaving you with fuller, longer lashes.

Read on to find out more about this time-saving and affordable treatment.

What Is a Lash Lift and Tint?

A lash lift (formally known as Eyelash Perming) and tint treatment involve working with your natural lashes by making them darker and more curled. The effect is semi-permanent and mimics the result of an eyelash curler and mascara. The process bends the lashes upwards, making them look longer, with a lifting effect.  A lash tint is similar to a brow tint as it enhances the color of your lashes, making them look darker, thicker, and fuller. When the two services are combined, it brings out the beauty of your eyes, making them pop and look brighter. A lash lift saves you from dealing with messy clumpy mascara every day.  Our aesthetician recommends that you have a patch test 48 hours before your appointment to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to the high-grade solutions we will use.

How it works

Before an eyelash lift and tint, arrive at your appointment with a clean, washed face with no eye makeup for optimal results. You should also avoid wearing mascara (especially waterproof mascara) at least three days before your appointment. This is because the mascara can leave residues that affect the quality of your lash lift and tint. You can also remove contact lenses for more comfort during the procedure.

During a lash lift, your lashes are lifted from the root and attached to a silicone rod or pads placed on closed eyelids. The lashes are then permed with a two-step eye-safe cream to lift and hold the curl in an upward lifted position. After this, the lashes are tinted to a darker color to boost the effect and make them more defined. A coat of pure keratin is plied at the last stage to strengthen and condition the lashes. 

There are no leave-on chemicals or extensions used. The procedure is painless and takes about 45 minutes to an hour, with the results lasting up to six to eight weeks. Every eye lift is not the same, and the longevity of your lashes can be determined by your immediate aftercare, how quickly your lashes grow naturally the type of lash lift you choose, and long-term care. Your aesthetician can help you select the type of lash lift suitable for your face and the style or look you want to achieve. 

Eyelash Lift Vs. Eyelash Extension

Deciding whether you want to go for an eyelift or an extension depends on the desired results. Lash extensions add extra length and volume, while a lash lift and tint curl your natural lashes for a lift and more prolonged effect. 

Lash extensions involve artificial eyelashes being attached to your natural ones with special cosmetic glue. The lashes applied per eye can be anywhere between 80 to 150 pieces for a fuller, flutter look. Results last 2 to 4 weeks, depending on care and maintenance and your shedding cycle. The process can take 1 to 2 hours, while the lash lift and tint take 45 minutes to an hour. Extensions have a more dramatic effect; however, they require less maintenance and last longer than the extensions. Some people also prefer to combine both treatments for a really dramatic effect.

Benefits of Eyelash Lift and Tint

  • Low maintenance for a busy lifestyle
  • Enhances your natural eyelashes
  • Suitable for every eyelash length and thickness
  • Give the appearance of long, darker lashes
  • Simple aftercare
  • More affordable than extensions
  • Noticeable results
  • It is customizable to your preference

A lash extension is more suitable for you if your natural eyelashes are very ort, fine, or sparse.  This is because a lash lift does not fill the gaps or add volume. A lash lift is perfect for you if your lashes are average in size (length), downturned, straight, and overly curly.

Eyelash Lift Aftercare Tips

After your lash lift treatment avoid:

  • Wetting your lashes 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Stay away from hot showers, swimming pools, steam, and sauna since the warm water can soften the cuticles again, interfering with your new look.
  • Rubbing or playing with your new eyelashes
  • Makeup, shampoo, make-up remover, creams, eye serums, and conditioner near the lash area for at least 24 hours.
  • Sleeping on your face.

It is essential to condition your lashes at least twice a week with coconut oil or castor oil to keep them healthy and nourished post lift and tint. After treatment, an aesthetician may provide serums to moisturize your lashes before your next appointment.
