Before we learn more, let’s understand what is lash lift and tint lift. 

What is a Lash Lift?

Eyelash lift, also known as lash curl, is a professional beauty treatment in which your eyelashes are lifted from the base of the lash to get a lifted look. 

A lash lift makes the eyelashes look fuller and more defined; it is an extra boost to the lashes that even mascara cannot give. It is a painless and affordable procedure.

What is a Lash Tint?

Eyelash tinting is a semi-permanent procedure of dyeing the eyelashes, darkening them from the root to the tip, giving them a look of mascara, and further enhancing the lash lift.

Few girls might be scared of tinting eyelashes, but it is a safe procedure and is becoming very popular among women. Lash tinting is similar to how they tint the eyebrows.

Procedure For Getting A Lash Lift And Tint

Before starting the treatment for lash lifting and tinting, the aesthetician will begin with a consultation. He will evaluate the eyelashes, and determine how long the process of lifting and tinting will take.

As you move ahead, the fooling steps will be involved in your procedure-

Cleaning the Lashes

  • The lash artist will clean the eyelashes to free them of cosmetics or dirt.

Sticking the Lashes Down

  • The next step will involve sticking down the lower lashes with a cotton pad, separating them from the upper.
  • The upper lashes are then attached to the silicone pad and combed into place to smooth out any wrinkles or creases. A serum is applied to the lashes before using a rod to contour the upper eyelid.

Applying Perming Solution

  • The aesthetician will apply an eye-safe perming solution. It will break down the bond in the eyelash, allowing it to change shape.

Applying Setting Solution 

  • Finally, the expert will apply a setting solution and leave it for a few minutes to seal the curl. The time depends on the specific product being used and the level of curl desired while considering the condition of the natural lashes.

How Remove Lash From The Pad?

Eyelash tinting will involve the following steps- 

  • Aesthetician will use a small brush or applicator to apply tint. Efforts will be made to an even and consistent layer of dye.
  • The base of the eyelash should be paid detailed attention to, as this is the part where the tint will be most visible.
  • Once the tint has been applied, it should be left for 5 minutes to process after the lash lifting treatment, depending on the dye’s intensity.
  • After 5 minutes, the expert will remove all of the tints from the lashes with the help of a cotton swab. Pulling the lashes makes them prone to breakage; therefore, utmost care is needed here. 

Once done, finally a lush plump is applied and left for 4-5 minutes before gently removing it. Lush plump helps keep the lashes strong and healthy, and it also helps extend the life of the lash lifting treatment.

How Long Does The Lash Lift And Tint Last?

The life of a lash lift and tint treatment is not permanent; as we mentioned earlier, it is a semi-permanent treatment. The effect of the tint and lifts seems to fade with time slowly, and once again you will end up looking for mascara.

Usually, it lasts for around 4-6 weeks, but with proper care, the life of the lashes extends up to 6 weeks.  

A few factors on which the life of your lash lift and tint depends are:

  • Lash lift and tint aftercare
  • Long-term lash care
  • The growth of your natural lashes
  • The type of lash lift you get

Tips for Lash Care After Lash Lift and Tint

  1. Avoid getting the lashes wet: It is advised to strictly avoid water or mascara on your lashes for 24 hours after getting the lash treatment done.
  2. Careful while sleeping: Avoid sleeping directly on your stomach or eyelashes to avoid bending lashes out. Better to consciously sleep on your back on first night.
  3. Use Oil-free products: Avoid using oil-based products near the lashes for at least 48 hours, as they can dissolve the bonding solution making the lash lift less effective.
  4. Gentle cleaning of lashes: Use mild and gentle oil-free cleanser to clean the face and avoid harsh rubbing or scrubbing of the eyes.


Lash lifting and tinting is a simple procedure. While lash lifting usually takes 45 minutes to one hour tinting doesn’t take more than 15-20 minutes. While planning for lash treatment, always get it done from a reputable and experienced aesthetician or salon. Following the aftercare routine properly can help to maintain the results of the lash lift and tint last longer, making them look beautiful.
