An introduction to our new Lash Lift & Tint services in New York

A Lash Lift & Tint service from James Christian Cosmetics is one of the simplest ways to freshen up your look. It’s a quick, painless, and affordable treatment, which will make your eyes look instantly brighter and more open. Giving your lashes that sexy curl and flutter you’ve always wanted!

What is a Lash Lift & Tint?

Think of it like permanently curling your lashes and applying mascara that never wears off. The Lash Lift & Tint treatment involves two separate processes, both designed to give you beautiful, fluttery eyelashes for weeks.

  1. The Lash Lift treatment mimics the effect of an eyelash curler, bending your lashes upwards, leaving them looking longer, and making your eyes more open and bright.
  2. A lash tint is similar to a brow tint – or applying several coats of mascara. It makes your eyelashes look darker, thicker, and fuller. It’s particularly striking on those with naturally blonde or red lashes.

Lash Lift vs. Lash Extensions

Lash extensions are one of the most popular ways to fake a fuller flutter. During the treatment, the beautician will attach synthetic eyelashes to your natural ones using a special non-irritant glue. Typically, 80 to 140 lashes are applied per eye. Depending on how the lashes are applied, the shape of your eye can be changed, and your existing lashes will be longer and fuller. The results usually last four to six weeks. While lash extensions can give a more dramatic look, a lash lift requires far less maintenance and lasts several weeks longer, and the treatment itself is quicker and cheaper. Extensions can also make your natural lashes more brittle, while a lift has no adverse effects.

What to expect from the Lash Lift & Tint service

The natural shape, direction, and thickness of your eyelashes will determine how dramatic your results are. If your lashes lie almost flat – or even point downwards – you’ll see a big difference after having a lifting treatment. Most women notice their eyes look more open, brighter, younger, and more ‘awake’ following their lash lift. Additionally, the eyelashes themselves will appear far longer, fuller, and more defined.

What is entailed?

A lash lift is a chemical treatment. First, your beautician will discuss the final result you want – for example, extra curved lashes, a cat’s eye effect, or a defined, fanned-out look. Next, they will cleanse and separate your top and bottom lashes. The top lashes will be attached to a silicone patch on your eyelid and combed into place. Then, an eye-safe perming solution is applied. The process works similarly to a hair perm – the chemical solution breaks down the bonds in the eyelash, allowing it to change shape. After a few minutes, a setting solution will be applied to seal in the curl. The results last around six to eight weeks, depending on your lash growth cycle.

How much does it cost?

The price of a lash lift can vary. Some factors include if you just need a Lash Lift, or would like your lashes tinted. In general, lash lifts cost $120 for the Lash Lift and $150 for the Lash Lift with Tint.

How long does it take?

The Lash Lift and Tint procedure typically takes from 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.
