Lash Lifts and Tints, the summer VIPs

Lash lifts and tints are among the top beauty trends of 2019. Today I’m going to break down what exactly a lash lift and tint is, how it works and how long they typically last.

You’ve probably noticed the buzz surrounding eyelash lifts, especially if you want bigger, fuller, curlier eyelashes and are looking for an alternative to eye lash extensions.

Four of the five most popular beauty searches on Google were related to making your eyes pop. In fact, according to Google’s 2018 trend report, people were very interested in eyelashes last year with the majority of related searches pertaining to lift or extension services.

When it comes to lash lifts, the buzz is warranted! The procedure requires little effort and it lasts longer than eyelash extensions with fewer potential side effects.

Results can be customized by adjusting the shape of the lash curl and adding a tint to minimize the need for mascara every day.

Here’s everything you need to know about lash lifts if you’re considering trying one for yourself. 

What is a lash lift?

Lash lifts are most common described as a ‘perm for your eyelashes’. The procedure gives a nice shape and realistic curl, similar to the results you may get with a professional mechanical curler.

How does it work?

As with any new service, the procedure begins with a consultation to ensure we are on the same page in terms of your shape, shade and direction goals for the service.

Once we have agreed on the final look, the work begins. First the top and bottom lashes are separated and a silicone pad is applied to your upper lid where the top lashes will be attached during the lift process. A series of solutions are applied to your lashes to start the shaping process. The treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes to complete.

How long does a lash lift typically last?

As everyone’s lash growth cycle is different, lash lift and tint results will typically vary. Most people will see their lifts lasting anywhere from 8-12 weeks.
