Our eyes are the windows to our soul — they convey emotion, establish contact with others and are one of our most powerful tools when it comes to effective communication. Therefore, it is no surprise that over 106 million Americans use mascara to enhance their eyes every day.
However, what about those special occasions? A few tears at a wedding can lead to dark streaks running down your cheeks. Mascara-wearers are also a slave to the weather; neither rain nor humidity are friends to mascara devotees. A fan of the gym? Sweating out the calories can also lead to sweating off your favorite eye makeup and cause those perfectly-curled lashes to droop.
Luckily, here at MacMed Spa, we can offer a solution. By combining these simple treatments, you can say goodbye to panda eyes and release yourself from the daily pinch of the eyelash curlers.
If you are looking for that open-eyed look usually provided by eyelash curlers, then an eyelash lift could be the perfect choice for you. By lifting your upper eyelashes, eyes appear wider and your lashes more defined.
A lash lift is similar to a perm, but without any of the associated harsh chemicals, so it is perfectly suited for the delicate eye area.
First, the area is thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Our aesthetician will then apply soft silicone pads to the upper eyelashes to hold them in place while the perming solution is applied. You then relax for approximately 15 minutes, before it is removed, and the setting solution is applied. After a further 15 minutes, the treatment is complete and, if desired, the tint is then applied.
The whole process takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
For 24 hours following the lash lift, you must not use water, cleanser or makeup. After this time, you can resume your usual beauty regime and even wear mascara.
How Long Does It Last?
The benefits of this treatment typically last for six to eight weeks.
This is a quick, pain-free and effective treatment which can transform the appearance of your eyes, particularly for those with fair hair, or those whose lashes fade towards the tips and appear shorter than they are.
First, petroleum jelly is applied to the surrounding area, to avoid any color bleeding, allowing for precise application. Our aesthetician will then apply a safe, vegetable-based dye directly to the lashes, which is then left to develop, while you relax for approximately 20 minutes. Your eyes are then wiped clean to reveal your new look.
We have a choice of colors, and our experts can help you find the correct shade for you to achieve the look you are looking for and really make your eyes pop.
How Long Does It Last?
By following the simple after-care instructions, the tint can last for four to six weeks.
Can I Still Wear Makeup?
Absolutely. You can even wear your favorite mascara on top of the tint if you wish to achieve a more dramatic look.
