An eyelash lift is when your eyelashes are permed using a chemical commonly known as a “perm lotion” and a setting solution. This combination gives your eyelashes a natural curl and lift, which can last for a long period of time. Then a colored dye is applied to your lashes, tinting them a darker color. A lash lift and tint will last anywhere from six to eight weeks, depending on the person.
An eyelash lift and tint can last anywhere from six to eight weeks, but here are some easy ways to make sure it lasts as long as possible:
Avoid oil based cleansers and vigorously scrub your eyes. The oil cleanser can help loosen the bond of the perm lotion.
Stop your use of eye makeup altogether and don’t excessively rub your eyes.
The chemicals applied during a lash lift and tint gives your natural lashes a slight curl and darkens their color, lessening the need for day to day maintenance. Getting a lash lift and tint is great for anybody who likes the appearance of dark, longer lashes but doesn’t want to worry about day to day upkeep. If you’re interested in eyelash extensions, but are opting for a more natural route, an eyelash lift and tint is a great alternative.
Appointments vary in time but can typically last 45 minutes to one hour. During the experience your eyes will be taped shut and there will be a long period of time where you cannot open them. We highly recommend bringing a podcast to listen to if you get bored quickly. The appointment should not be painful, but there is occasionally some slight discomfort when you first reopen your eyes. If you are experiencing stinging or pain, make sure to let your aesthetician know as soon as possible.
An eyelash lift and tint price varies depending on your location, but typically in the range of $50 to $200.
