Don’t worry, though, because you can now get eye lashes that match the descriptions of Hollywood’s finest. With a lash lift and tint job, you will be able to get the “smokey eye look” in no time.
Let’s find out how you can get a lash lift in Port Stanley and learn more about our makeup procedure…
What happens during a lash lift?
Lash lift is a simple procedure to make your eyelashes look longer. It is a perming or curling process that helps lift the lids. Unlike lash extensions in where artificial strands of lashes are applied to your lids, with an adhesive. A lash and tint at our Port Stanley Spa, simply changes the shape and appearance of the lashes by making them fuller and darker.
Lashes have a tendency to grow in a “flat / straight out way” instead of growing in the upward direction. But we all know that when the lashes defy gravity, they look more dramatic and pleasing. So, in essence, it will ensure that your natural lashes reach their full cosmetic potential! Drawing in your mate, for a closer look deep into your eyes….
First, you will need to consult an expert who will choose the right makeup and look for your lashes and the length you’re looking to achieve. Then, your eye area will be cleansed thoroughly before starting the lash and tint process.
To give your straight lashes the boost they need, silicone pads, shaped with the perfect curve for the lashes, are placed beneath them like a mold. Then, a perm solution is applied to them, followed by a neutralizer. Finally, the solution is removed before some oil or conditioner is applied to the lashes.
A silicone rod may also be used instead of the silicone pad – and using an adhesive, your natural lashes will be set on the rod. This helps your natural lashes curl over the rod. Then, with the help of a lifting lotion, the lashes are detached from the rod. A setting solution helps the newly curled lashes retain their shape.
Sometimes, a high pH chemical solution is also used in a “keratin lash lift” and is followed by protein. But a non-keratin lift involves the same chemicals that a hair perm process requires. At the end of the process, the lashes are tinted to give them a stunning finish.
Do you need a lash tint?
An eyelash lift is usually followed by a lash tinting session, in which the newly lifted lashes are dyed to make them look dark, thick, and full. It completes the look and makes your newly done lashes stay firm. It is essential for someone who has pale hair that isn’t noticeable in general.
Tinting makes the lashes more prominent. So you can say that a lash lift procedure remains incomplete without applying lash tint. Think of it this way: a lash lift and tint procedure are like using an eyelash curler and applying a few coats of mascara to make your lashes noticeable.
Does that mean that you don’t need tinting if you have dark eyelashes? Not at all! Even if you have dark lashes, tinting is a good idea to improve their appearance.
It also saves a lot of time that you’d otherwise spend coating your lashes with mascara every time you want to look decked up. So, tinting your lashes means part of your eye makeup is always completed for you – every day!
Will a lash lift and tint damage your lashes?
Lifting and tinting lashes are usually safe for everyone, and they have no harmful effects on your natural lashes. But since chemicals and dyes are used, it is a good idea to do a patch test to ensure that they do not cause an allergic reaction, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Look out for watery or red eyes, eye infection, allergic rhinitis or hay fever, etc., within 48 hours of doing the test. If you do not face these issues, you should be able to get your lashes lifted and tinted. It’s a good idea to discuss your allergies and skin conditions with lash experts.
It is important to go to experienced lash technicians who have a thorough knowledge of how to perform this. Otherwise, you may end up damaging your lashes. In the worst case, people may even get their eyesight harmed because of wrong techniques and ingredients.
The process may have a drying effect on your lashes and make them brittle, which may cause eyelash loss. But properly moisturize after the process and using only good-quality products for the right duration will be able to prevent this problem.
How long will the results last?
An entire lash lift and tint process should take about 45-60 minutes though some salons do a patch test 48 hours before the procedure. But just by spending less than an hour at the salon, you can get a procedure that gives you beautiful, long-lasting results.
The results of lash lift and tint last for 4-6 weeks. It depends on the speed at which you experience the growth of your eyelashes. To ensure that the results last long, take proper care after the lash lift procedure. The salon or expert you consult should be able to guide you.
How do you maintain your Look?
The first thing to do is avoid any kind of eye makeup or water in the first 24-48 hours of getting the procedure done. Also, avoid touching the lashes for a day or two. To get the best results, stay away from swimming, massages, sauna, etc., during this time. To keep your lashes moisturized, use a high-quality lash serum. In general, avoid using waterproof mascara – and be gentle on your lashes.
Can you use mascara on top of your lash lift?
You can undoubtedly wear mascara after you get a lash lift. But be careful about the mascara you choose. Do not use waterproof mascaras as they are difficult to remove – and can damage your lift and tint when you fight to remove the mascara by rubbing too much or using harsh products. Also, make sure not to use any mascara in the first 1-2 days after the procedure, as mascara can break down the lash lift.
