Lash Perms or “Lash lifts” as they used to be known are growing in popularity with females who want an extra enhancement for their lashes. I am one of those teenagers that have used curling mascaras consistently because I am justifiably terrified of eyelash curlers! I just don’t trust myself with them…too many “what ifs.” I’ve also never colored my own hair, so take that for what its value, too.
I’m someone that looks to experts for techniques like these, and for my lash lift and tint I went to my favorite beauty bar in Fredericton: Vibrant. When I reached at my appointment, I was given an expert consultation on whether or not I could go with lash extensions or if, in fact, I truly did need to give my eyes a break.
I just skipped my beloved lash extensions, partly because I wanted to take a break from them and somewhat because I’d been forced to (because they fell off).
Benefits of a Lash Lift and Tint
Better For Your Lashes. Persistent wear of lash extensions can be really tough on your own lashes, and often a lash technician will recommend a break from extensions after a couple of years. A lash lift and tint work with your own lashes.
Economical Than Eyelash Extensions. A lash lift and tint process should really only cost around $80 and doesn’t need to be regular at the same frequency.
Less Care than Extensions. Because a lash lift or tint can last for a month, it is far less care than lash extensions (some ladies get them done a couple of times a year). How long a lash lift or tint will last totally depends on the individual, but it doesn’t need the maintenance of lash extensions.
There Are No Restrictions Before Procedure. You know that instruction of not getting new extensions wet, evading saunas or hot yoga or any of that? The minute your lash lifts and tints are finished, you can rub the heck out of your eyes! You can do anything that you want. You can also wear any makeup you like and use any scrubbing oils you’ve got on your vanity.
Best for Re-growing Lashes before Extensions. A lash lift is the best starting point when re-growing your lashes. It can help them grow in the best direction (up and not out!). Plus, the tint makes your eyelashes more noticeable, too, if you decide for a more beautiful look.
What is Lash life and Tint?
If you’ve had eyelash extensions before, you’re familiar with having tape and pads on your eyes. This procedure isn’t entirely different in its preparation, but I desired to express to you what it looks like!
Procedure for Lash Tint
As you’ll possibly want your lower eyelashes tinted, too, the technician will first do the tint. The tinting process exactly colored my lashes shadier so that when I wasn’t wearing any makeup, they didn’t look missing. Tinting my lower lashes also made it, so I didn’t have to wear mascara to them if I didn’t want to.
Procedure for Lash Lift
It is also called eyelash perm since it is just that – a semi-permanent curl for your eyelashes! The additional curl from the lash lift helped to make my little eyelashes look a little longer – and they didn’t look like small hard sticks when I applied makeup.
Special thanks to the technician at Vibrant for making my eyes feel beautiful and for all the DIY tips for increasing my baby lashes while they grew back out!
