Have you ever looked at someone’s lashes and wondered how they look so long, full, and perfectly curled? While there may be some people that are naturally gifted with the perfect lashes, there’s a good chance these people you’re looking at have had some sort of treatment done. Specifically, a lash lift and tint.
Getting a lash lift and tint is one of the quickest and simplest ways to get the beautiful lashes you’ve been hoping for. It gives you a more awake and brighter appearance without you having to apply anything each day.
We’re going to run through more about what a lash lift and tint are and show you some before and after examples so you can see for yourself just how incredible the results are!
What is a Lash Lift and Tint?
A lash lift and a lash tint are two very different things but can be incredible when paired together.
A lash lift is a treatment that’s done to the lashes using a chemical solution. It helps to shape your natural lashes, similar to the result you achieve when using an eyelash curler – expect it holds a lot longer!
A lash lift can help you to get longer-looking lashes with the appearance of more volume and a beautiful shape. A silicone shield will be glued to your eyelid, after which the perm solution that helps to curl them is applied. Once everything has been processed, a setting solution is applied and the shield is removed to reveal your nicely curled natural lashes.
While it might seem like a simple treatment, it’s a slightly more intricate process than you might think. Each lash has to be processed for the treatment to work. This means it’s best to have it done by a professional.
A lash tint, on the other hand, is a treatment that’s done to color the lashes and make them darker. This can help to add drama to the overall look of the eyes and complete your look once you’ve had your lashes lifted.
This treatment is done by adding color from the base to the tip of each of the lashes. This helps to create a darker and more bold look without turning your lashes brittle.

Lash Lift and Tint FAQ
Now that you know more about the incredible results that a lash lift and tint has to offer, let’s get into some frequently asked questions!
How long do a lash lift and tint take and is it safe?
When you book your lash lift appointment you should book for about 45 minutes or slightly more. The extra time will allow you to have time to check-in and check out after your appointment. If you plan on getting your lashes tinted as well then you will want to add on a little bit more time to allow for the colour to be applied and set.
The lash lift and tinting process are incredibly safe. We use specially shaped lifting pads before any product is applied so your eyes stay protected.
Should I get a lash lift and tint or lash extensions?
A big question we get is if it’s better to get a lash lift and tint or lash extensions. These treatments are very different even though the purpose of getting them is quite similar.
With eyelash extensions, you get individual lashes added to your natural lashes. This helps them to appear much longer and more voluminous. They generally last somewhere between 4-6 weeks depending on how quickly your lashes grow.
An eyelash lift and tint on the other hand doesn’t include adding anything to your eyes. Instead, the process only involves your natural lashes.
Deciding between the two is a decision that’s entirely yours to make! Both are great options for enhancing your lashes. It’s just a matter of how dramatic you want your lashes to be and if you would like them to be on the more natural side or not.
What does aftercare look like for a lash lift and tint?
After you’ve gotten the treatment, you should stay away from make-up remover, eye make-up, steam, and water for at least 24 hours. Moisture can ruin the curl of the lashes which is why you will want to avoid it.
Once 24 hours have gone by you can resume your regular make-up and cleansing routine. It can also be a good idea to use a conditioning treatment to keep your lashes nourished and healthy after the treatment.
How long do a lash lift and tint last?
Your lash lift and tint are likely to last somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks. How long it lasts specifically will depend on the length of your lash growth cycle and how well you care for your lashes afterward.
Sometimes, if you take extra care of your lashes and have a longer lash cycle your lash lift and tint can last somewhere between 8 and 12 weeks. The best way to find out is to try it for yourself!
How much do eyelash lifts cost?
The cost of your lash lift will vary depending on where you go and who your beautician is. They can range anywhere from $60 to $200. You should do your research ahead of your appointment so you don’t run into any surprises when it’s time to pay your bill.
You should look at the location of the salon and the experience of the beautician to help determine the price as well as the quality of the treatment itself.
Are a lash lift and tint worth it?
Is it worth it to get a lash lift and tint? The answer to this is easy – YES!
This treatment is incredible for making your eyes pop and your appearance more awake. It can also help to save you a ton of time in your daily makeup routine. You might try getting a lash lift and tint for a special occasion such as a wedding to try it out. And then decide from there if it’s something you would like to continue with.
Are lash lifts painful?
Funnily enough, lots of clients find the lash lift process to be relaxing. You get to lay down and close your eyes for 45 minutes while your beautician works away.
It’s important to know however that some clients who have eye sensitivities could experience a bit of discomfort. If you think you could potentially be allergic to the solution then be sure to ask your beautician to do a test spot before you dive into the full treatment.
Can you wear make-up after a lash lift and tint?
As we mentioned above, it’s best to leave your lashes untouched for 24 hours following your appointment. However, after 24 hours you’ll be more than ok to start using make-up as usual. You might find that you can forget the mascara altogether and rock your natural lifted and tinted lashes instead!
How often can you get a lash lift and tint?
While the amount of time will vary depending on your lash cycle, you can generally expect your lashes to start to go back to normal after about 2 months have passed. The great thing is that your lashes won’t drop unevenly and are sure to stay in place as they fall.
If you feel like you need a lash lift and tint more often, then you can get your next treatment after a month has passed.
Will a lash lift damage my natural lashes?
A lash lift and tint won’t damage your natural lashes at all! Especially if the treatment is done by a professional who knows what technique to use and what products are going to be the best quality for your lashes. Be sure to book in with someone who has great reviews and has experience in the treatments you’re looking for. Regardless of whether it’s for your lashes, skin, hair, eyebrows, or whatever else it may be!
