Benefits of Eyelash Lift and Tint
An eyelash lift and tint is the hottest beauty treatment right now. This simple yet luxurious treatment gives that wow factor that’s perfect for special occasions, events, or just every day. If you’re thinking about getting an eyelash lift and tint but you’re unsure if it’s the right treatment for you, this guide will give you everything you need to know.
What is a Lash Lift and Tint?
A lash lift and tint is a cosmetic treatment that curls and colors eyelashes. The technician uses a perm solution to lift and curl the eyelashes. Tinting is then done using a permanent dye to give a more dramatic color to the lashes.
This difference can be so dramatic that many women stop using mascara altogether after the treatment.
This luxurious treatment will help shorten your makeup routine, saving you valuable time and effort each morning.
At the start of your appointment, your technician will ensure your skin and lashes are makeup-free and ready for the treatment.
Next, silicone pads will be placed under your eyes to protect your skin and lower lashes from the perming solution.
Your eyelashes will then be lifted onto silicone lift rods using an adhesive specially designed for eyelashes. This will be a non-toxic solution to keep your eyelashes and skin safe and irritation-free.
Once all lashes are in place using the lift rods, the perming solution will be applied. This covers the middle part of your lashes to avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
The perm solution contains thioglycolic acid which penetrates deep into the lash and helps the structure adapt to the new curl shape.
The solution is left to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. You might experience slight irritation but it’s only minimal.
Once done, your technician will take the perm solution off using swabs.
Finally, a conditioning solution is applied to the lashes using the same method as the perm solution. This is left on for 7-10 minutes before being removed.
Next up, your technician will tint your eyelashes to make them beautifully dark and prominent.
The tinting agent will be applied to your lashes and left for around 15 minutes for the best effect.
When this time is up, your technician will remove the formula and apply a final solution to clean the lashes and remove any remaining residue.
How Long Does a Lash Lift and Tint Last?
A lash and lift tint is permanent, however, your eyelashes are not. So, the treatment will last as long as your lashes which will naturally shed after around 4-6 weeks.
In this time, the curled lashes will shed, and new lashes will grow in. To keep your eyelashes looking fabulous, you’ll need to get the treatment done every 4-6 weeks.
Lash Lift vs Extensions
You might be wondering whether a lash lift and tint or lash extensions are right for you. There are some differences you need to consider when making your choice:
Extensions last up to 3-4 weeks, whereas an eyelash lift and tint can last up 4-6 weeks. If you’re looking for something that lasts a little longer, a lift and tint is a good option.
A lift and tint enhances your natural lashes so is only as effective as your natural lashes. On the other hand, extensions add false lashes which give extra volume and length to your natural lashes, giving a more dramatic effect.
If you’re looking for a fuller, more dramatic look, extensions are your best option. However, if you want an elevated natural look, a lift and tint is best.
Another thing to think about is refills. When you get extensions, you’ll need to get refills in about 3-4 weeks when they begin to shed. However, lifts and tints don’t require refills, so you can give your eyelashes a break between treatments without your lashes looking thin or uneven.
And finally, getting eyelash extensions is a long treatment taking up to 1 hour and 15 mins to complete.
Is Lash Tinting Safe?
Lash lifts and tints are completely safe when performed by a trained, qualified technician. At Femme Bar, we put customer care above all else so you can be sure you’re getting a safe, enjoyable treatment.
If you’re concerned about any part of the treatment, have a chat with one of our friendly technicians. They will talk you through the process and let you know all products we use.
We love chatting with our clients so never be afraid to ask us questions. We take pride in our processes and high-quality products and would love to walk you through the process. We can assure you you’ll get the best treatment here at Femme Bar and the best results.
After your eyelash lift and tint appointment, it’s important to avoid getting your lashes wet for 24 hours. Also, you’ll need to avoid wearing mascara or makeup on the eyes for this time to ensure the perm solution has fully developed. However, we’re confident you won’t need to wear mascara after your lift and tint!
If you love wearing mascara, after the 24 hours is up you can apply your favorite mascara as normal. But be careful when removing your eye makeup. Don’t pull on the lashes and dab the eyes with a makeup pad rather than dragging it across the eye. This will help reduce premature shedding and keep your eyelashes looking fabulous for longer.
Benefits of Eyelash Lift and Tint
Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful benefits of an eyelash lift and tint.
Boost Your Confidence
You’ll be amazed by how much such a small beauty treatment can boost your confidence. Knowing your lashes are long and curly helps you walk a little taller and feel more confident going through your day.
Enhance your Natural Eyelashes
If you love a natural look, an eyelash lift and tint is the perfect option. It enhances your natural lashes and gives the appearance of a beautiful mascara without the need for products.
Great For Short Lashes
Contrary to what you might think, lifts and tints are perfect for short lashes. In fact, they are designed for any length and thickness of lash. So if you’ve always wished for longer, fuller looking lashes, a lift and tint won’t disappoint.
Longer, Thicker Looking Lashes
If you love the effect mascara gives, you’re going to fall in love with a lift and tint. Your natural lashes might be quite straight and pointing downward, making you think they are shorter than they are.
Perfect Alternative to Extensions
Is the upkeep of eyelash extensions a turn-off? Then an eyelash lift and tint is a great alternative. This simple treatment isn’t as dramatic as extensions but still gives a fabulous enhancing effect without the need for intense upkeep.
Whether you’re a stay at home mom or business exec, we’ve all got incredibly busy lives. Sometimes, we just don’t have time for time-consuming treatments. This is where a quick lash lift and tint can be a lifesaver. It takes approximately one hour and with little upkeep, so it’s great for busy women on to go.
When you consult with your beauty technician, they will talk to you about what your goals are. They’ll want to know if you wear mascara most days as well as other important information about you to make sure they give as much help as possible.
No Prep Needed
You don’t need to do anything to prepare for your eyelash lift and tint. It’s a quick and easy treatment with minimal aftercare too. If you do want to get the best results possible, you can think about using an eyelash serum before your appointment to help your eyelashes grow as long as possible.
You Can Keep Wearing Mascara
Because this treatment curls your natural lashes instead of adhering false lashes, you can wear your favorite makeup without worrying about ruining the treatment. Remember though, you will have to wait 24 hours after the treatment to wear mascara to ensure the curls set.
Good for Hay Fever Sufferers
If you suffer from hay fever during the summer, a lift and tint is a great option. Wearing mascara can irritate the eyes and make hay fever worse. This simple but effective eyelash treatment means you won’t need to wear mascara keeping your eyes fresh and tear-free.
Perfect for Special Occasions
Whether it’s your wedding, honeymoon or special birthday, a lash lift and tint is the perfect treatment! You’ll have curled lashes without having to stress about false lashes falling out during your big day.
