Eyelash Lift & Tinting
An eyelash lift does exactly what it says on the tin, it lifts the natural eyelashes up and out fanning them out beautifully. It gives your lashes a curl you didn't even know was possible, and you don't need to have naturally long eyelashes to have a lift either! It's a great alternative to eyelash extensions and wearing mascara. View some incredible eyelash lift results by clicking 'Instagram Feed' from my menu above. A patch test is required at least 48 hours prior to any eyelash lift or tint treatment if I have not seen you before for these treatments. This can be booked online by clicking 'Book Now' and selecting the 'Eyelash Lift/Eyebrow & Eyelash Tint Patch Test' option.
The lift lasts 6-8 weeks and a tint is included in the package, as well as a complimentary eye & lip mask, and a little aftercare goody bag to send you home with.
Please remove all eye makeup and contact lenses before coming for your lift. Contacts can be put back in half an hour after the treatment.
For the lift you will be laying down with your eyes closed. A shield or rod will be glued close to your top lash line. Different size shields and rods give different results. The smaller the shield, the more dramatic the effect. Your eyelashes will then be glued back onto the shield. Once complete, a perming solution will be applied to the eyelashes. The duration of this varies due to hair type and desired effect. This will then be removed and a setting lotion is applied over the eyelashes for 6-10 minutes. For my eyelash lifts I use the brand Hello Lashes which gives the most gorgeous results whilst remaining 100% vegan friendly and cruelty free!
Once the setting lotion has processed everything including the shields is removed ready for your eyelash tint.
When tinting eyelashes I use Refectocil, which is a hugely recognised brand worldwide. Blue Black is the shade I only ever use for lashes as it gives so much depth to them, black on its own can sometimes give out grey tones.
Whilst tinting eyelashes a barrier cream is applied under the eyes which also doubles up as a soothing eye mask - two treatments in one! The mask is enriched with nourishing shea butter, almond oil, chamomile and Vitamin E and D.
For the 24 hours immediately following on from your eyelash lift please avoid;
Heat, including hot showers, saunas, cooking over stovetops, opening hot ovens and dishwashers
Water, please avoid getting them wet at all including oils, lotions, creams, face washes, make up wipes
Side sleeping, as your eyelashes are still malleable (shape-shifting), so a side sleeper or face sleeper may notice mishapen lashes from being raised or dropped. Sleeping on your back is best.
Avoid direct sunlight right after your treatment, as this can weaken the lift lotion and fade the tint.
Avoid face washes and oil-based beauty products as this can also cause lashes to drop prematurely.
Organic castor oil or coconut oil may also been used 3+ weeks after your lift to condition and nourish lashes.
To help maintain your eyelash tint, completely avoid cleansing the area. Doing so will strip the tint. Cleanse around the area with gentle products and pat the area dry, don't rub.
If I have not seen you for an eyelash lift before, or if it has been longer than 6 months since your last treatment, or if you have had any major changes i.e medication or pregnancy etc, then a patch test is required at least 48 hours prior to your appointment. This can be booked online, it is one of the first options you will see on the booking system. It only takes 5 minutes (if that!) so it's super easy and quick.
