They say that if the eyes are the windows to the soul, the eyelashes are their curtains. Therefore, you should make it a point to care for them and ensure they are always well-maintained.
Having curly, voluminous lashes can make your eyes look more open, wide, and alive. If you are worried about having short lashes, there are now many fast, easy, and painless beauty procedures that can make your lashes appear longer, such as eyelash lifting and tinting.
Lash Lift vs Lash Tint: What Are Their Differences?
A lash lift is a beauty treatment that lifts and curls your natural lashes that will last the duration of your natural lash cycle, which can be as long as 90 days. It is a great alternative to lash extensions and is best paired with a lash tint. This option is perfect for you if you want to have luscious, longer-looking lashes through a quick and budget-friendly procedure with minimal aftercare.
On the other hand, lash tint deepens the colour of your lashes. It involves dying your natural lashes temporarily, which gives you bolder, natural-looking lashes and achieves the look of wearing mascara without going through the time-consuming hassle of applying makeup every day.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Both treatments are generally safe. However, some side effects you may experience include skin irritation, dry eyes, allergies, eye or skin sensitivities, blisters, rashes, Inflammation, and even temporary hair loss. These occur rarely and happen only when you’re working with an inexperienced technician.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
Lash lifting takes about 40 to 60 minutes, while lash tinting is a 30-minute beauty treatment. The staff will ask you to remove your makeup thoroughly and clean your face, particularly your eye area. Your eyes and lashes should be free of any makeup, cream, and oil before the procedure.
Before your technician begins, they will place a gel patch under your eyes and on your lower lashes to avoid the curling of your lower lashes in an upward direction. Afterwards, soft silicon pads will be set down on your upper eyelids to hold your eyelids in place when the perm solution is applied to your lashes.
The crucial step during the procedure is combing your lashes carefully. Your lashes have to be combed straight right from their base, and this has to be done gently to prevent your lashes from pointing in various directions.
To curl your lashes, a perming solution will be applied and left on your lashes for approximately 15 minutes. A sanitized cotton will be used to remove the perming solution. Finally, a setting solution will be placed on your lashes for approximately 10 minutes, then removed using a sanitized cotton pad.
As for lash tint, your technician will make you choose your preferred lash colour. They can also help you pick one to ensure the colour blends with your natural lashes seamlessly. The dye will be applied to your lashes and left to be absorbed for about 12 minutes.
The tint will then be removed. To complete the procedure, your lashes will be applied with nourishing oil and are combed straight.
Having curlier, longer lashes enhances your natural beauty and accentuates the shape of your eyes, and they can usually be attained by applying makeup every day. Luckily for all of you who’d prefer to sleep in for another 15 minutes, you no longer have to go through the trouble of curling and applying mascara to enjoy having long-lasting dramatic lashes when you undergo lash lift and lash tint treatments. Just wake up, freshen up, and you’re ready to go!
