Ditch The Mascara: A Lash Lift and Tint Will Transform Your Look

If you were born with long eyelashes, some may call you lucky, but for those who weren’t, they rely on beauty products to help them achieve the look they desire. The go-to for most is mascara. It’s portable and easy to apply but not all mascaras are good for your eyes. Some are petroleum-based and can contain aluminum powder and propylene glycol which aren’t the best for your precious lashes. Through a lash lift and lash tint at Miami Center for Dermatology, you can achieve an eye-opening look without mascara.

What is a lash tint?

A lash tint provides the same look as your daily mascara, but without the harsh chemicals. This unique die gives weeks of dark and full lashes, also shortening your make up routine for weeks to come. This process takes about 10 minutes and is non-invasive.

Lah tint contains a special dye for your lashes that is not harmful to the eye. The dye will make your lashes appear darker and fuller without the need for mascara. You will sit in a reclined salon chair as one of our trained technicians applies the dye to your lashes. With your eyes closed for about 10 minutes, you will receive beautiful dark lashes. The tint will not smudge or clot like mascara does.

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is an alternative to falsies or lash extensions by creating a curled lash effect with your natural lashes. A keratin treatment is used that not only curls and lifts your lashes but strengthens them. A lash lift can shorten your make up routine for six to eight weeks and can be done in 45 minutes.

Clients should treat their lashes as they would their hair with a keratin treatment. Clients should not get their lashes wet for at least 24 hours to allow the solution to fully take. If the lashes get wet, the perming process may not take and you will lose all of the curl. During the 45 minute process, the client will recline in a salon chair and have their lashes taped down to the technician can work. They will apply two solutions that will curl your lashes to the shape you desire.

How do falses compare?

It’s true that false lashes are not only cost-effective but easy to obtain and put on daily. Both strip lashes and individual lashes can give you a similar look but may damage your natural lashes. To apply false lashes, glue is needed to bond the synthetic hairs and your eyelash. The glue can be toxic and cause permanent damage to your eyes and lashes. Doing this regularly can leave your eyelashless while doing a lash lift and tint strengthen your natural lashes.
