Lash lifts and tints have become popular procedures in the beauty industry, offering a way to enhance your natural lashes without the need for extensions. Want to keep them fabulous for a longer period of time? Then check out this comprehensive guide for proper care before, during, and after the procedure.

BEFORE

  • Do your homework. Ensure that you have done your proper research and consultation with an expert such as Sweety Skin Care & Lashes. We will walk you through the whole process and provide you with the details you will need before your lash lift procedure.
  • Avoid mascara and eye make-up. Leading up to your appointment, refrain from using mascara (especially waterproof mascara) or any eye makeup, including eyeliner and eyeshadow. Mascara leaves residue that may make it difficult for lashes to lift properly. Clean lashes provide a better canvas for the procedure, ensuring optimal results.
  • No to eyelash curlers for 24 hours prior to your appointment!
  • Healthy eyes are key! Ensure that you don’t have any eye infections or irritations. The procedure can’t be performed if there is any irritation, and you would have to wait for it to be clear.
  • Wait for 6 months or more if you’ve undergone lasik surgery. Be patient. You shouldn’t have a lash lift and tint immediately if you’ve undergone lasik surgery.

DURING

  • Fill out the consent form prior to your appointment.If you have not done so, then come a little earlier to your appointment.
  • Do not use contact lenses while on treatment. We can provide you with a contact lens solution and case if needed.
  • Keep calm and relax! The treatment is hassle-free and pain-free, and it usually lasts around 45 to 60 minutes.
  • While lash lifts and tints are usually comfortable procedures, let us know if you experience any discomfort so we can adjust accordingly.
  • Take note that we cannot do the lash lift and tint procedure if you currently have extensions.

AFTER

  • If irritation occurs, use a damp cotton compress in the area.If symptoms persist for more than 24 hours, seek medical help.
  • Avoid water and steam. For the first 24-48 hours post-treatment, avoid getting your lashes wet or exposing them to steam. Water and steam can interfere with the setting process, compromising the results.This means avoiding activities such as swimming too!
  • Avoid touching and rubbing your eyes, eyelashes, or eyebrows. Be gentle; no rubbing or pulling, as these may irritate your eyes and cause your lashes to fall off.
  • Skip oil-based products. Steer clear of oil-based skincare and makeup products around the eye area, as they can break down the tint and affect the longevity of your lash lift.
  • Avoid using mascara for the first 24 hours. Avoid using waterproof mascaras in general, as these may affect your curled lashes.
  • Don’t use eyelash curlers. They may weaken and damage your eyelashes.
  • Practice gentle cleaning. When cleansing your face, be gentle around the eye area. Use a mild, oil-free cleanser, and avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes. Pat them dry gently with a clean towel.
  • Brush and shape. Use a clean spoolie brush to gently comb through your lashes daily. This helps maintain their shape and prevents any crisscrossing or tangling.
  • Avoid sleeping face down for the first 24 hours. Try to avoid sleeping on your stomach or with your face pressed into the pillow, as this can cause your lashes to bend or become misshapen.
  • Brush your eyes gently as needed with a lash brush.
  • Avoid any oils on your eyes for 2 days after treatment.
  • Condition your lashes. This keeps them healthy and well-refreshed. Use coconut oil or castor oil a week after treatment, around twice a week. You may use castor oil every night if you’re trying to grow your eyelashes.
  • Schedule regular touch-ups.Lash lifts typically last 6–8 weeks, while tints may fade sooner. Schedule regular touch-up appointments to maintain your desired look and keep your lashes in top condition.

With the right before and aftercare routine, you can continuously enjoy beautiful, lifted, and tinted lashes. By following these tips and staying consistent with maintenance, you’ll maximize the longevity of your lash lift and tint. Ensure your eyes remain the center of attention wherever you go.
