Soft, lush, beautiful lashes are trendier than ever. There are so many different options on the market including falsies and lash extensions that temporarily give you the appearance of fuller, longer-looking lashes. But, these solutions come at a hefty price and can often look unnatural. Lash lifts and tints are the new wave of lash beauty that enhance your eyelashes’ natural beauty without looking overdone. Let’s dive into this innovative lash technique.
What is a Lash Lift?
The “lift” in a lash lift really just refers to the semi-permanent curling of your lashes, mimicking the effect you get from a regular lash curler, but for a much longer amount of time. A lash lift is very similar to a perm but made specifically to curl your lashes. Like the traditional perms you think of from the ‘80s, a lash lift sets the shape of your natural lashes with a curling base and chemical solution. The “lift” in a lash lift really just refers to the semi-permanent curling of your lashes, mimicking the effect you get from a regular lash curler.
What is a Lash Tint?
A lash tint is similar to an eyebrow tint, but, again, made specifically for your lashes. At Vein & Body Specialists, we use a special tinting solution to semi-permanently darken the lashes to give you the appearance of wearing mascara, even when you’re not wearing makeup at all. Like dying your hair, tinting your eyelashes does not last forever, so we recommend you come in for regular tinting treatments at the same time you come in for your lash lifting treatments.
What Results Can I Expect From a Lash Lift and Lash Tint?
Your lash lift and tint can be completely customized to you based on your ultimate aesthetic goals. You will have the ability to choose the type of curl that you feel best suits your wants and needs. For example, the type of lash lift for someone who wears makeup regularly and has shorter lashes is going to be very different from the lash lift for someone who never wears makeup and has long lashes. The results of your lash tint and lift last for about six to eight weeks at a time. We recommend you come by for regular follow-up visits every six weeks to maintain the results of your lash treatment.
Can I Wear Makeup after my Lash Lift and Tint?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage you to follow your regular skincare and makeup routine following your lash treatment. Unlike other lash enhancement treatments, like wearing false lashes or getting eyelash extensions, there are no adverse effects to wearing oil-based makeup or using makeup removers around the eye. Your lashes are still going to be your natural lashes, so you can continue treating them as such.
How Much Does a Lash Lift and Tint Cost?
A lash tint and lash lift at Vein & Body Specialists will cost you $40 each when done separately, or just $75 when done together. This is a steal compared to other shops that can charge upwards $100 for a lash lift alone. If that still feels a little pricey for you, we got your back. We offer financing options that help to break down your bill into smaller, more manageable monthly payments, as well as monthly specials that help you save money on your favorite products and treatments.
