What Is an Eyelash Lift and Tint?
Do you need to know the secret of how people are achieving gorgeous eyelashes without lash extensions? The chances are, they’ve had a lash lift and tint. Beauty pros worldwide are obsessed with this innovative system, which uses a silicone shield and lifting solution to lift and curl the lashes. It’s the best way to enhance natural lashes, replacing the traditional perming solution, which isn’t suitable for all eyelash types.
The best results come from undergoing a full lash lift and tint treatment. After a dye is applied, lashes look even more stunning. A professional lash artist can help you match the right tinting color to your hair and skin tone, from natural and blonde shades to a striking blue-black look.
How long does an eyelash tint and lift last?
How long a lash lift and tint lasts will depend on a variety of influencing factors. This includes the condition of the natural lashes, how quickly new hairs grow through, the quality of the products used, the lash lifting technique chosen, and whether your client implemented the right aftercare for at least 24 hours after the lash lift procedure. Usually, lash lifts last for about six to eight weeks, while the effects of the tint last three to six weeks.
Do lash lifts ruin your eyelashes?
Lash lifts won’t ruin your lashes if you choose the services of a licensed professional who uses high-quality products like those we supply at Lash Bomb USA from Beautiful Brows and Lashes. Each step of the lash lifting process has been carefully created to include nourishing formulas that hydrate and condition the lashes. The aim is that lash hairs will grow back even stronger, encouraging new and healthy hair growth. The ingredients used during lash lifts can also reverse the damaging effects left by a perm solution. Never attempt to lift lashes at home.
One of the ways you can ensure the lash lift and lash tint effects last while ensuring lashes remain in good condition is to follow the best aftercare tips for at least the first 24 hours after the treatment. This helps the lashes settle in their new position.
For 24 to 48 hours after the eyelash lift:
- Avoid touching or rubbing the eye area
- Keep lashes dry
- Use an eyelash conditioner
- Do not apply eye makeup in this area
- If possible, don’t use contact lenses
- Avoid saunas and swimming pools
- Sleep on your back
- Use a mascara wand to comb lashes upwards
Can you still use mascara with a lash lift?
While the process will lift lash hairs to help them look longer, many people want to make their eye area pop as much as possible. If you want to apply mascara, you should find a suitable product for lashes lifted through this type of beauty procedure. This includes keratin mascaras.
However, to get the look you desire, we highly recommend getting a full lash lift and tint. Your clients will love waking up with perfect lashes each day, ditching both their eye makeup and lash extensions for good. Once the look has faded, they can come in for a top-up treatment, lifting lashes once more while restoring the deeper color.
Do you tint or lift lashes first?
If your client has opted for both treatments, the tinting happens after the lifting process. You should only carry out this treatment if you are trained and certified to do so. However, a general overview of some of the key steps of the Lash Bomb are as follows.
Step 1: Lifting and setting solution
The lashes lift onto the shield, using a lash tool and bonder. This ensures a uniform look across the eyes. Then, apply a lifting cream (a type of setting solution) in small amounts – usually a third of the way up the lashes for a lift or halfway up to achieve a curl. This solution is applied with a micro-applicator. Processing times for each stage depend on the condition of the existing lashes.
Step 2: Neutralizing solution and tint
In this step, a solution is applied to the areas of the lashes where the setting solution was used, neutralizing any remaining lotion. It’s now that you can give lashes a color boost, applying the chosen dye with a tinting brush. Once the dye has set (usually after 3 to 5 minutes), the excess tint is removed. If you buy the lash tints we supply, you’ll have a choice of five gorgeous shades – natural, mid brown, brown, blue-black, and deep black.
Step 3: Moisturize the lashes
When the lash lift process is over, you must do everything possible to keep the lashes hydrated. Therefore, in the third step, it’s advised you use a moisturizer serum. This helps to gently remove the lashes from the shield while giving them a final shot of goodness.
Each of the three solutions used in the lash lift process has beneficial ingredients in them to strengthen lash hairs, stimulate growth, and repair damage caused by a perming solution. Lashes should feel stronger, healthier, and well-conditioned.
