What’s the Difference Between an Eyelash Lift & Eyelash Tint in Seattle, WA

If you are fed up with spending extra time each morning on your eyelashes, there’s good news! Eyelash lifts and eyelash tinting are two options that will allow you to have longer, darker eyelashes without the use of heavy mascara.

Eyelash Lifts

An eyelash lift is a low maintenance solution for those who crave thick, fuller lashes. The procedure, which takes about an hour to complete, can last as long as 6-8 weeks. The end results of the procedure give you similar results as using an eyelash curler and several coats of mascara, without having to go through the process every morning. When you get a lash lift, the technician will use a silicone pad to individually lift each lash, which provides an appearance of volume to the eyelashes. One of the best benefits of an eyelash lift is that you can choose the size of curl you want-small, medium or large. Once the curl is set, you can add a tint to the eyelashes are tinted to make them really stand out.

Eyelash Tinting

Lash tint is a process that is used to temporarily darken your eyelashes. The process is designed to give you the look of wearing mascara, without actually wearing it. The entire process only takes about 15 minutes and your eyelashes will stay dark for about one-month. The dye used to darken the eyelashes is a safe, vegetable based dye. The technician will place “stickers” around your eyelids to prevent the dye from staining any area of your eye, other than the lashes. 

Eyelash tinting is different from eyelash lifts, in that the lift will provide curl to your eyelash as well as color, whereas the tinting does not provide curl (makes lashes appear longer).  Our technician will explain in full to you how to care for your eyelashes after a lift and/or tint. Eye makeup should be avoided for about 24-hours after the eyelash lift or tint. Also, there are no side effects with either treatment; however, some people may experience slight stinging and watery eyes, which dissipate quickly.
