Lash lift and tints are the best, mainly because they’re more natural and longer-lasting than extensions, and you can go 6 – 9 weeks between appointments! But don’t just leave the salon with the feeling that nothing can slow you and your lashes down – a lot can happen in the next 24 hours. To keep your fierce-looking lashes their best for as long as possible, there’s plenty you can and should do before and after the treatment.

Preparing for Your Lash Lift and Tint

For starters, make your appointment, then write it down on your calendar and circle it in the brightest, reddest ink you have. Because 24 hours before your appointment, you’ll have to go without any mascara, and we don’t want you to forget that! We want those lashes to be as clean as possible, so take a brief vacay from your usual lash enhancers.

In fact, before leaving for the salon, clean off all your eye makeup. It’ll save us all some time, and there won’t be any contaminants to ruin the lift and tint. Also, remember to not wear contact lenses to your lash lift and tint appointment.

After Your Treatment

The most important part of keeping your newly lifted and tinted lashes looking their best is to not apply makeup, pressure, or get them wet for the next 24 hours. Your lashes are still malleable and will be for a day or two, which means any pressure or moisture can shift them out of place. No mascara, no creams of any kind, no hot tubs or saunas – even steam cooking is a no-no!

It’s important not to damage your lashes in your sleep, too. Avoid sleeping on your side of your face for a few before and after lash lift and tint blog image nights after the treatment, as the treatment can rub off onto your pillow. If you’re a stomach sleeper, just remember that it’s only for a night or two! Even if you’re having trouble sleeping, definitely do not rub your eyes.

After 48 hours you can return to your ordinary routine, but you can make some lash-friendly upgrades to this as well. If you’re in the market for new makeup, seriously consider using a hydrating mascara and a makeup remover that is oil-free. Don’t use a waterproof mascara, as the chemicals used to make them “waterproof” can severely dry out your lashes. Using makeup and remover that nourish your lashes and are free from harsh chemicals will help strengthen your lash lift and tint and make the positive results longer lasting. You can also brush your eyelashes with a special lash brush, much as you would brush your hair before bed.

Most of the changes you’ll have to make are only short-term, no more than a day or two, but they’ll be some of the most important. Your lashes will still be set in this time, so it’s of the utmost importance that you not disturb them or get them wet. After two days, while there are still some measures you can take to keep them healthy, you’re free to enjoy your lashes and the confidence they give you!
