What is a Lash Lift?

Have stubborn lashes that won’t curl? Or a lifestyle that doesn’t work with eyelash extensions? Sunday Beauty Boutique has the perfect, low maintenance lash solution for you.

YUMI Lashes Lash Lift is a cosmetic treatment that enhances your natural lashes by lifting (curling) and tinting them.

After the initial 24 hours of keeping your lashes completely dry, you’re free to apply makeup, work out, wash your face - basically get back into your everyday routine.

YUMI Lashes was launched in 2008 in Europe, and 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.

Now this highly requested lash lift treatment is available at Sunday Beauty Boutique, located in Vancouver, BC in the heart of the Kitsilano neighbourhood.

Before a Lash Lift

How do I prepare for my lash lift appointment?

Remove all eye makeup. That includes mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, foundation and concealer.

If you need to wash your hair, do so the night before or the morning of.

Remove contact lenses.

Avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee and tea.

Will there be a consultation before my service?

Definitely. Your lash lift treatment doesn’t begin until I've taken a look at your lashes to determine their length, thickness, colour and health. We will also discuss your expectations and answer any questions.

During a Lash Lift

What can I exp​ect during a lash lift service?

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 opportunity to nap, catch up on podcasts or listen to music. Blankets and extra pillows are also available to maximize your comfort.

Procedure

Your eyelashes and eye area will be gently cleansed to ensure 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 to the area underneath your eyes. 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 selected during your consultation.

At this time, your lashes will be ‘sculpted’ to the shape of the silicone form. This step usually takes the longest as your lashes will keep this shape for 8-12 weeks after the treatment, so it’s important to make sure is lash is sculpted into the perfect position.

After your lashes are set into place, the YUMI Lashes Lift solution is applied to your lashes, focusing on the roots. Traditional lash perms are applied to the entire lash which can dry out, weaken or even damage lashes. 

Once the Lift solution has processed and been removed, the Fix solution will be applied and removed after it has finished processing.

Your lashes are now perfectly lifted, but we’re not done yet. To give them an extra boost, we will darken your lashes with a tint. Tinting can also help lashes look longer and thicker.

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, and your lashes are 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!

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

Aftercare

What do I do after a lash lift?

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

That means avoid swimming, crying, or washing/showering too close to your eye area. If possible, also avoid eye makeup as you’ll have to use remover to get it off at the end of the day.

Although it’s tempting to brush out your ‘spiky’ looking lashes, please wait! Once you’ve passed your initial 24 hours, you can wash and brush your lashes as often as your like. The ‘spiky’ look will become more fluffy and natural, and at this time, it’s perfectly fine to apply mascara.
