This post is to answer all of the questions I've been getting ever since I started seeing Jessica Mignone, of Gorjess Skin and Wax Studio. She is the beauty sponsor for Miss North Carolina US International so I get to try lots of new and exciting things in the beauty world with her! She also microbladed my brows and there's a post coming at the end of the month about that!
Tinting and lifting your lashes takes about and hour to an hour and a half. You are lying down on a facial bed, and she works from the top of your head.
Let's talk about lift.
You come in with a clean face. No make up, especially around the eyes and certainly no mascara. Jess cleans your lashes, because even if you thought they were clean, they probably weren't. She's gently removed any liner or mascara build up so the lifting solution works.
Next, she wraps your lashes around these tiny little rubber rods and puts on the lift solution. This is where I normally accidentally take a little snooze. After she puts the lift cream onto my lashes which are wrapped around the rods, we wait. The lift solution takes about 5-10 minutes, and then there's a 5-7 minute conditioning cream after that.
Everyday mascara aka the tint.
Personally, my favorite part is the tint. After the lift, she removes the rods, and we finish up with the tint. Jess customizes your tint color based on your skin tone and hair. Mine is more of a blue black for an extra pop. The tint cream takes about 10 minutes to process and then wah-lah, you're done and have "I woke up like this" eyes for the next 6-8 weeks.
But can you __________________?
Yes you can
- Wash your face
- Get your lashes wet
- Use liquid eyeliner
- Use mascara (but why would you?)
- Curl your lashes (but why would you need too?)
- Use strip lashes
- Use individual lashes
- Rub your eyes
The only real maintenance is if you have naturally long lashes, sometimes they get a little tangled and clumped while you sleep. For that, I recommend using a disposable mascara wand to brush them out!
