Eyelash Lift and Tint

contact us

Eyelash extensions are a well-known way to add fullness, length, and curl to your lashes, but they require frequent, expensive appointments to maintain their results, not to mention the constant brushing and lash fallout. If you want to experience enhanced lashes that make your eyes pop, look no further than the eyelashes you already have. An eyelash tint and lift at Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery is an amazing way to make your natural eyelashes appear longer, fuller, and more lifted, plus this treatment is far more affordable and low maintenance than extensions. 

What is an Eyelash Tint and Lift?

A lash tint and lift is a semi-permanent aesthetic procedure duo designed to enhance an individual’s natural lashes. An eyelash lift is sometimes called an “eyelash” perm because the cream used to shape the lashes works in the same way perming solution curls your hair. When combined, the lift and tint can mean removing mascara from your makeup routine entirely, or they can augment the effects of mascara for a more glam look.

Eyelash Tint and Lift Procedure

An eyelash tint and lift is a relatively straightforward aesthetic procedure, in fact, it can even be a rather relaxing process. To begin, you will discuss your desired look with your esthetician, such as how dark you would like your lashes and if you would like to dye your bottom lashes as well. Then your esthetician will begin the process of lifting your lashes.


After you have settled comfortably onto the bed, your esthetician will clean your lashes and eyelids to ensure no makeup, dirt, or oil will interfere with the procedure or the results. A silicone pad is placed on your upper eyelid and the lashes are glued to the rounded edge of the pad in the desired shape. Then three different lotions are applied to the lashes one right after the other. The first one is a lifting lotion that allows the lashes to mold into the shape of the silicone rod. This lotion is removed after about 10 minutes, then the setting lotion is applied to keep the lashes in their new shape. Once the setting lotion is removed, a moisturizing lotion is applied to keep the lashes healthy.


The final step of the procedure is tinting the lashes. The lashes will become slightly porous after a lift, allowing them to take the dye better. During a tint, your esthetician will protect your eyelids with another silicone pad before applying a thick coat of dye to your lashes. This will sit for 10-15 minutes before being removed. In total, an eyelash tint and lift takes around an hour.

Who is a Good Candidate for an Eyelash Tint and Lift?

Anyone who would like to enhance the appearance of fullness, length, and darkness of their natural eyelashes can benefit from an eyelash tint and lift. The results will show most dramatically on individuals with light and finer lashes but can amplify already dark lashes too.

After an Eyelash Tint and Lift

You may notice some residual dye and residue on your lashes and in your waterline after an eyelash tint and lift. You can use a dry Q-tip to clean up the area around your eyes. It is important to avoid the following for at least 24 hours after your tint and lift in order to maintain and enjoy the full results:

  • Wetting the lashes.
  • Oil-based makeup.
  • Touching or playing with the lashes.
  • Swimming.

After this 24 hour period, your esthetician will recommend conditioning the lashes with a special serum or something as simple as vitamin E oil. An eyelash tint can last up to 5 weeks before fading back to your natural hair color. The lift, however, can last up to 8 weeks.
