Lash tint and lift
If there’s one beauty look we’ll always be obsessed with, it’s long, luscious lashes. Now you can enhance the thickness and length of your natural lashes with a tint and lift – more defined and more youthful.

I’ve wanted to try a lash tint and lift for a while now after seeing the results on models I’ve worked with – ready-to-go lashes without a mascara in sight. I’ve dyed my lashes over the years but never had the lift. I’ve always used eyelash curlers. I wish this was something I didn’t have to do but I wasn’t blessed with long luscious lashes. They’re short and straight, and getting straighter the older I get!
An eyelash lift and tint is simply lifting your existing eyelashes and then tinting them – like a perm and dye for your lashes. The results are longer and more defined eyelashes that are low maintenance and can shave minutes of your makeup routine. It’s the perfect treatment during the summer months, a time to simplify your makeup routine and go au naturale. Something that’s a necessity on holiday with the heat and humidity, chlorine and saltwater.
First of all, you’ll need to go and have a patch test at least 48 hours before your treatment. This is just to make sure you don’t have any reactions to the chemicals. The treatment then takes around 60 minutes in total. There are three stages – perming, neutralising and dyeing. Its all painless other that a small amount of stinging when the eyelash dye is applied but this usually only lasts a minute or two. If you’re lucky you may get a lovely hand massage during the treatment which was a nice extra thanks to The Treatment Rooms in Brighton where I had my treatment. The price is around £60-80 and the results can last from 6-8 weeks dependent on the existing condition of your natural lashes and the degree of lift created. After speaking to a few experts you can have this treatment done up to four times before taking a break for six weeks.
I really can’t recommend this treatment enough. For me, even if I have no makeup on, the eyelash tint and lift makes me feel more polished and put together. The treatment opens up your eyes leaving you with longer more defined lashes. A real bonus if like myself, you have slightly hooded eyes or just simply want to lose minutes off your makeup routine.
