What is Lash Lift and Tint
The Lash Lift and Tint (also known as LVL Lashes or Length-Volume-Lift) is one of the latest trends in the beauty industry. It is a lifting technique designed to give you longer-looking natural lashes without the need for lash extensions. It will look as if you’ve used a really good eyelash curler, only the lift lasts for up to 6 weeks. Requiring minimal maintenance, it is ideal for short, long, straight, or even curly, lashes to make them appear longer and more lifted without the need for eyelash extensions or the daily use of eyelash curlers. To give your lashes the extra wow factor we’ll apply a black lash tint which really makes your eyes pop! The treatment takes about 45 to 60 mins to complete.
Please arrive to your appointment completely free of eye make up. Extra time used to clean your lashes will result in reduced time to perform your lash lift. If you wear contacts, they must be removed.

At West One MYB we use quality, EU regulated products and our lash treatments are performed by a certified lash artist to ensure our clients have the best results.
Eyelash extensions are an extremely popular beauty treatment. Eyelash extensions add volume, length and curl to your natural lashes, and with the help of an experienced lash artist you can transform your appearance and make you morning routine much easier.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic mink lashes that are glued meticulously one-by-one onto your natural lash (not the skin), to resemble your natural lashes. By applying the lashes only one lash at a time instead of quickly layering it on top of multiple lashes, your natural lashes are given the freedom to move and shed as they naturally would and causes little to no irritation or heaviness.
Extensions will open up your eyes with a fresh and feminine look. This non-invasive technique is pain-free and clients have said they have never felt so at ease during the application – some have even fallen asleep. Once your eyelash extensions have been applied, you’ll have a hard time looking away from the mirror. With thicker, longer and perfectly curled lashes, everyone will wonder why you look so great, but won’t quite know what’s changed!
Extensions will last 2-4 weeks depending on your lash growth cycle, how you sleep and how well you care for your extensions. On average, our clients book in for re-lash appointments every 3 weeks.

Full Set 2 hours
We do not have a predetermined number of lashes that we will apply on you. Our goal is to have your lashes looking like a full set every time you walk out of our door. We lash every lash possible during the time allotted.
Please aim to arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time with clean/makeup free eyes and lashes. Extra time spent cleaning your lashes will mean less time lashing.
Eyelash Care Instructions
Do Eyelash Extensions Damage Your Natural Lashes?
We care about your safety during and after the procedure, and we never apply eyelash extensions to your skin, only to your natural eyelashes. Our certified lash artists will select and apply suitable lash extensions based on the health of your natural lashes. Our main priority is to preserve your natural lashes’ health. When applied correctly, natural lashes should never hurt or cause your natural lashes to break off. Your lash artist will recommend never pulling or tugging on your extensions, which will avoid damage your natural lashes. It is very important to keep the eye area clean. Proper hygiene is essential to avoid eye infection. Your lash artist will provide you with information on appropriate eye cleaning procedures and products.
How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
With proper at home care, the adhesive will last anywhere from 6-8 weeks. However, you do lose 3-5 natural lashes every day, or 21-35 lashes lost per week. After an average of 2-4 weeks, most clients will want to come in for infills to keep their lashes looking full. There are many factors that could affect the retention of your extensions including improper home care, not cleaning the lash line, oily eyelids, the use of oil based products on or around the eyeline, medications, allergies, thyroid or hormonal issues, lifestyle, seasonal changes, a natural heavy lash shed, and so much more. If you do run into an issue with your retention, please contact us so we can discuss next steps.
Can I Wear Makeup / Mascara?
The eyelash extensions and adhesive are both deep black to give the appearance of mascara and often times eyeliner, so makeup is not really necessary. If you do decide to wear makeup/mascara, avoid oil based and waterproof products as those will break down the adhesive faster. The most important bond of the eyelash extension and the natural lash is at the base so mascara may be worn on the tips of the extensions which can allow you to go an extra few days before your touch up and straighten any “lazy lashes”. Remember to use an oil free eye make-up remover too to reduce the effects of breaking down the adhesive.
How Do I Care for My Eyelash Extensions?
It is very important to clean and brush your lashes/lash line daily to prevent eye irritation, infection, blepharitis or other eye health issues. To do so, use our daily Foaming Cleanser especially formulated for eyelash extension cleansing and care. For extra protection and to increase the life of your lash extensions, use our Lash Perfect Finishing Glaze every three days. We recommend our Lashes Aftercare kit. This exclusive kit includes everything needed to properly cleanse, protect, and maintain your eyelash extensions.
How Are Your Services Different?
At West One MYB we are certified lash artists holding several qualifications in beauty therapy. We ensure that each extension is properly applied on only one single lash at a time. Our primary focus and specialty is ensuring your natural lash health is protected throughout the duration of wearing eyelash extensions.
If at any point your lash artist observes damage being done to your natural lashes or it is assumed that the extensions are too heavy for your natural lash, adjustments in the length and/or weight of your extensions will be made and discussed with you to ensure your natural lash health is protected. If you have any questions about the process or your natural lashes, please do not hesitate to ask as many questions as necessary to feel comfortable and confident in your eyelash extension experience.
