Lash Lift and Tinting
No matter how much mascara you layer on, sometimes lashes just need an extra boost. And while extensions and falsies are always an option, they also require
far more maintenance. Enter: the lash lift.
Essentially a perm for your natural lashes, this relatively low-maintenance process
lifts and curls lashes long-term. For those looking to shave a little time off
their morning routines, this might be a treatment to consider.
All About Lash Lift
What is a lash lift?
A lash lift is an all-natural, semi-permanent procedure that gives you the appearance of fuller, thicker eyelashes without the use of any leave-on chemicals or extensions. The natural lashes are boosted from the root, giving them a lifted, lengthened appearance.
With a lash lift, you won’t have to deal with clumpy mascara or annoying falsies. Plus, you’ll wake up every morning with naturally long, thick lashes.
Many people choose to get their lashes tinted a darker color to increase the effect. You can think of it as a perm for your lashes.
Ideally, the procedure should be quick and painless, leaving you with eyelashes you can bat glamorously to your heart’s content.
How long does a lash lift last?
A lash lift isn’t permanent. The effects fade with time, and after a few weeks, you may find yourself once again reaching for the mascara.
In general, a lash lift lasts for around 4 to 6 weeks, but this can vary depending on your lashes and the type of lash lift you choose. With proper care, you may be able to extend the life of your lash lift to 6 weeks.
But not all lash lifts are the same.
How long your lash lift lasts is completely dependent on how well you prepare and complete aftercare and your natural lash growth cycle.
Wondering how long your lash lift will last? There are a few variables that contribute to the longevity of your newly lifted lashes.

What you do immediately after getting a lash lift can have a big impact on how long the treatment lasts. It can take up to 48 hours for the treatment to set, so it’s important to follow the aesthetician’s care instructions.
Long-term lash care
After the initial 48 hours have passed, there are still things you can do to ensure that your lash lift lasts as long as possible.
The aesthetician should provide clear instructions on how to take care for your lash lift in the weeks ahead, but here are a few general guidelines:
Avoid waterproof mascara. Parcells adds that regular mascara is OK in small quantities.
Avoid using oils and multiple skin care products around the eye.
Avoid eye masks and eyelash curlers.
Be aware of how often you rub your eyes, and try to avoid doing so if possible.
