Lift and Tint

This treatment combo makes you feel like you have the most effortless mascara on at all times. A lash lift enhances the natural curvature of your lashes making them appear longer and more uniform while a tint deepens the lash’s natural color. The process is simple and quick but it makes such a difference. Here's how it works...

The treatment starts with two under eye patches that contain aloe to soothe and protect the skin near the eyes from the different solutions and colors used. First, a silicone rod is placed on your eyelid with a water soluble solution. A small metal tool is used to gently roll and play the lashes onto the silicone rod, it gently separates the lashes to ensure correct lash placement.

Second, a lifting solution is applied onto the lashes and left to sit for 5-10 minutes. This step works to lift the lash from their roots where they meet the eyelid. Next, a neutralizer solution is brushed onto he lashes and again, left to sit for 5-10 minutes. This helps firm the shape that the lashes have developed as well as keep them straight and uniform. Both solutions are then wiped off and the eyelids and the lashes are cleaned of all products used.

If you’re already getting a lash lift add a lash tint to your service as well! The lash cuticles are already opened up from the lifting treatment which allows the tint color to absorb into the lashes more quickly and darker. The treatment is again, straightforward and simple but makes a huge difference (especially if you have light colored eyelashes!) A tint is brushed onto the lashes and left to sit for 10 minutes. Once the color has absorbed into the lashes the solution is wiped off and the eyelids are cleaned.

These treatments work the enhance your natural lashes and add a little more color around your eyes. Our Social Media Manager, Abby, loves how her normally blonde lashes stand out without the help of mascara (the best natural makeup look!) The lash lift also makes mascara application a seamless process which is Monika’s favorite benefit from the treatment. You know how no matter how many times you run a mascara wand over your lashes they never seem to be straight and clump free? PROBLEM SOLVED! The treatment lasts 6-8 weeks!
