As a lash artist, I thought I’d seen it all. That was until I got my first Yumi Lashes lash lift and literally gasped when I looked in the mirror. I’ve never seen my natural lashes look this good before!

They went from stick straight, thin, and downward-facing to curled, plumped up and, dare I say, looking longer.

YUMI Lashes is a European beauty brand. In 2008, they launched the YUMI Lash Lift, a keratin lash enhancing treatment.

The Yumi Lash Lift was first introduced in the USA in 2015. As the service became increasingly popular, especially among celebrities, certified training and product approval finally reached Canada in January 2017.

What Is A Yumi Lash Lift?

YUMI Lashes Lash Lift is a cosmetic treatment that enhances natural lashes without adding fake eyelashes.

During an eyelash lift service, the lashes are lifted (curled) and darkened with an eyelash tint. The end result is perfectly curled and darkened lashes that look fuller and longer.

The results can last up to 8-12 weeks - depending on your natural lash cycle.

How Do I Prepare For A Lash Lift?

Remove all eye makeup

That includes mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, foundation and concealer.

Makeup residue can mess with how the YUMI Lashes products work. So it’s super important to take off all makeup before your appointment. If you wear waterproof mascara or eyeliner, make sure you clean along your lash line!

If your skin is extra sensitive, it’s better to avoid wearing makeup at least 24 hours before your appointment.

You need to keep your eyelashes completely dry for the first 24 hours. Any contact with moisture can make your lashes uncurl.

Also make sure to schedule activities such as swimming, hot yoga and sweaty workouts accordingly.

Removecontact lenses

Wearing contact lenses during your appointment can dry out or irritate your eyes.

If you can, wear glasses to your appointment instead.

Avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee and tea

Caffeine can cause your eyes to flutter and twitch, and prevent you from relaxing during your treatment.

Try your best to avoid caffeinated foods and drinks at least 3 hours before your appointment.

If you forgot or absolutely need to have caffeine, be sure to visit the washroom right before your service begins!

What To Expect During A Lash Lift

Consultation

At Sunday Beauty Boutique, all services begin with a consultation. This way I can customize your service according to your lash type and lash health.

During this time, we will discuss your expectations, what we can achieve and also answer any of your questions.

Lash Lift Procedure

It's time to relax!

You’ll be lying down on a comfortable spa bed with your eyes closed for 1.5 - 2 hours. Clients usually take this time to nap, catch up on podcasts or listen to music.

Blankets and extra pillows are also available to maximize your comfort.

BEFORE - YUMI Lash Lift

Your eyelashes and eye area will be gently cleansed to make sure that they are completely free of any oils and makeup residue.

To protect your lower lashes and eye area, a pair of eye masks will be applied. This eye mask also has brightening and moisturizing properties. At this point your eyes will be closed until the treatment is over.

Next, silicone forms will be fitted onto your upper lids. These forms come in three sizes: small, medium and large. Depending on your desired look, the correct size will be chosen during your consultation.

At this time, your lashes will be ‘sculpted’ to the shape of the silicone form.

This step usually takes the longest since your lashes will keep this shape for 8-12 weeks after the treatment.

After your lashes are set into place, the YUMI Lashes Lift solution is applied to your lashes, focusing on the roots.

Lower lash tinting is optional, although I will typically do it for blonder or light brown lashes.

Once the lash tinting is completed, the silicone forms are removed with the help of the YUMI Lashes Nourish oil. Your lashes will also be gently cleansed to ensure that all products are removed.

Finally your lashes will be brushed and the YUMI Nourishing protein mascara is applied before the grand reveal of your lashes!

AFTER - YUMI Lash Lift

Freshly lifted lashes will look spiky like you're wearing mascara. When you wash them (after 24 hours) they will become light and fluffy.

How To Take Care Of A Lash Lift

Simple. Keep your lashes completely dry and avoid touching them for at least 24 hours. This will make sure that your newly lifted and tinted lashes will keep their shape and colour.

That means avoid swimming, hot yoga, washing your hair - basically anything that can wet your lashes. This is very important because wetting your lashes at this point will cause them to uncurl.

After the first 24 hours, give your lashes a good wash. This will get rid of any residues left over from the lash lift service.

Pat dry with a towel and use a mascara wand (provided with your service) to brush out your lashes. You’ll notice that your lashes are now nice and fluffy.

At this point, your lashes are set. You can go back to your normal routines and wear eye makeup - yes, that includes mascara and eyeliner!

Will eyelash tint do anything for my black lashes?

Yes!
