Lash Lift & Tint
What is a lash lift?
The lash lift procedure has revolutionized old, inadequate perming techniques. Using silicone pads instead of perm rods, this new technique can lift, straighten or curl, and lengthen your own natural lashes to create a brighter, fuller, wide eyed look. Results last several weeks!

The answer is simple; Anyone. Busy, on the go and no time for makeup.. or those with light, blond, or gray lashes and brows.. or before vacation or an event, especially those where you'll be poolside or shed a tear.. no running mascara here!

How do I prepare for my appointment?
Arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Thoroughly cleanse face and lashes prior to your appointment, be sure to pay special attention to your lash line. Do not use any moisturizer or makeup. Avoid caffeine within 4 hours of your appointment time.
Can a lash lift be used to compliment other treatments?
Yes! A lash lift is enhanced when you use an eyelash growth product. While your lashes grow longer, our process controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them a uniform lifted look.
Is a lash lift the same as an eyelash perm?
No the lash lift is a new, improved procedure, overcoming the "over curled" look of its predecessor . While the chemical procedure is identical to a perm, the difference is in the results. By eliminating the old fashioned perm rollers which curled back the lashes to the extent of the ‘dolly look’, the silicone pads used for this new procedure lifts the lash from the root in either a straight or curled, upwards fashion that produces length and a bright eyed enhanced look.
Does the lash lift process hurt?
No. Your lash procedure will be performed with the utmost care and proper technique. The product never touches the skin during the process. Redness around the eye may occur due to the product removal process (wiping the eyes with cotton rounds) but should disappear within a few minutes after the procedure.
How long do the lash lift results last?
A lash lift can last 6-8 weeks but can vary from person to person. There is no need for any maintenance appointments in between but you will need to have the process repeated every 6-8 weeks to lift the new hair growth. There are some situations that may cause the lift to drop/weaken prematurely such as swimming, use off harsh products or heat.
Will I have a reaction to the lotion?
Very few people have a reaction to the lotion but that doesn’t mean you won’t be one of them. What one person reacts to, another is fine with. This is why you can opt to have a patch test 24 hours beforehand. A patch test is quick and simple. It consists of us placing 2 drops of lotions behind the ear for 15 minutes. Wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation for example.
I wear contact lenses, can I have a lash lift?
Yes. However, we will ask you to kindly not wear your contacts to your lash lift appointment.
Can I wear makeup after my lash lift?
Yes but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara (such as our featured mascara at Eye Love Beauty) is advised as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.
How do I clean my lashes?
Gently, using cleansing and after care from Eye Love Beauty. Always wait 24 hours to do this, straight after the procedure.
Can I use an eyelash curler?
No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, But more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.
