YUMI Lash Lift for ALL Eyeshapes | Prép Beauty Parlour

Best Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 3

Our YUMI Lash Lift & Tint service is a great alternative to strip eyelashes and the classic- eyelash extensions. It’s low-maintenance, lasts 8-12+ weeks, and allows you to apply as much eye makeup as you please! Today we’ll take a look at the wonders the lift can do for people with different eye shapes!

Now it is important to understand exactly what the YUMI lash lift is. Quite simply, it is a lift of your natural lashes. This is done through a relaxing beauty nap where a series of lotions and oils over a silicon rod on your eyelid, with your lashes placed on top (Psst, you can read more about that here where we go in depth about the process!).

If you’re used to extensions or wearing strip lashes, this might be quite a different experience for you. First- it does not add any length to your lashes, as a lash enhancement service, your natural lashes are put to work! However, it is possible for some clients to notice extra length if they are blonde or brunette, and have brunette lashes with light-blonde tips, the little tint at the end of your service helps darken your lashes and thus, creates the illusion of longer lashes!

Yumi Lash Lifts are a great alternative if you are taking a break from extensions, or just want to try something new! Let’s dive into transitions after the lash lift with clients who have different shaped eyes!

  1. DOUBLE EYE-LIDBest Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 3

For this client, she noticed an extremely dramatic difference after the lash lift! In the before photo (top), it was clear she had very long, natural lashes, but due to the weight of the lashes, it was downturned and didn’t reflect how amazing they were! The lift helped her keep them up and all without the use of a curler!

This next client also has the same eye shape, however rather than downturned lashes, she has natural unruly and curly lashes. The lash lift (ironically), straightens and corrects her lashes so they are not curly and “criss crossed” but instead, lifted up and away from the eyes, showing their length!

2. HOODED EYES 

Best Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 3With hooded- eyes, there is an extra layer of skin that sits on top of the crease, this may lead to an illusion of smaller lids as part of it may “disappear”. The YUMI lash lift helps combat this by really lifting your lashes up and above the crease, opening and widening your eyes.

3. MONOLIDS

Best Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 3

Monolid is exactly its name, there is no visible crease, similar to hooded eyes, it leads to the illusion of smaller lid space. The lift helps to lift the lashes to create an eye-opening look!

YUMI Lash Lift: Is it right for me? | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | YUMI | No Comments

Best Vancouver Yumi Lash Lift | Prép Beauty Parlour 4

The YUMI lash lift and tint trend hit 2018 like a train! More ladies are opting for the miraculous lash lift service that lifts and darkens your natural lashes- giving the illusion of added length. All without having to worry about coming in for lash fills and other maintenance. Due to its popularity, we receive many questions about this comparably new lash service, and have put together the perfect guide before you book, YUMI Lash Lift: Is it right for me?

You have luscious and long natural lashes

The YUMI lash lift does an amazing job of giving the eye that extra pop even without the use of mascara and strip lashes. But like everything, it isn’t for everyone. This lash alternative only uses your natural lashes, no extra length or volume, meaning the length of your natural lashes are the extent to how long your lashes will look after the curl, we included a few photos to illustrate the different outcomes to help you decide. Keep scrolling to do your own “test” before you book your appointment!

Do your lashes pass the curl test?

If you are unsure whether your natural lashes would suit a lash lift, we like to ask clients to do a quick test at home before they book their appointment. It’s as simple as curling your lashes with a regular eyelash curler, and seeing how you like the look of your lashes. It is also important to note that your lashes may fall throughout the day using a curler, but will stay curled after the lash lift appointment.

Are you an avid make-up wearer?

The lash lift is a great alternative to lash extensions, but if you are a lover of strip lashes or dramatic volume lash sets, lash extensions may be a better option for you. However, if you wear light makeup- maybe just eyeliner and a dab of mascara, the lash lift looks great and really speeds up the get- ready process in the early mornings. Unlike lash extensions, the Yumi lash lift lifts only your natural lashes, meaning you don’t have to worry about using oil- free products, lash fall out, or having to do gymnastics just to remove makeup without disrupting your lashes. After the 48 hour setting period, you are free to wet your lashes and apply makeup as you normally would without it affecting the longevity of the lift!

Do you plan on getting lash extensions in the near future? 

What’s great about the lash lift, is its long life span of anywhere from 6-8+ weeks (Depending on the length of your own lashes and your lash cycle), and while it lasts a long time, many people may wish to get extensions very soon after their lift appointment. It is important to know that lash extensions cannot be applied within this 8 week period as your natural lashes are too curly to apply extensions.

Will you be getting the lash lift every 6-8 weeks?

Getting a lash lift is a lot like getting your hair permed.. but on a much smaller level. And just like your hair and cuticles, moisture is key to maintaining lashes. If you plan on getting the lash lift treatment done frequently, we recommend the a keratin nourishing oil/lotion we carry to be in your lash health’s best interest. With keratin in the formula, think of it as a building blocks that build and strengthen all the hairs on your body, including your lashes. This can be applied every night before bed or in the morning before your eye makeup routine 48 hours after your initial procedure.

Any more questions?

We hope to have helped you clear your concerns about the lash lift, and to help better understand who this treatment best benefits! For more information on the actual process of the YUMI lash lift, click here!

All About YUMI™ Lash Lift Enhancement | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | YUMI | No Comments

Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

Let’s talk lashes. More importantly, let’s talk the YUMI™ lash lift. Spring & Summer are right around the corner, and so are those beach dates!

The YUMI™ lash lift is perfect for those who love spending time in the water or gym frequently as you don’t have to worry about using specific face washes after (such as the lash extensions). It’s also the best lash enhancement option for ladies who love their natural lashes look when they’re curled.

Today we are going to answer some of our most frequently asked questions about lash lifts! If any of your questions aren’t answered, feel free to email us at info@prepbeautyparlour.com! Let’s get started!


Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour
1. How long does it last?

The lash lift should last anywhere from 6-8+ weeks! Sometimes even 12 depending on your natural lash cycle and how fast your lashes shed and grow out! However, some ladies with grown out lashes may notice odd kinks- to solve this, we recommend applying the 3D Keratin Lash conditioner. This conditioner not only has keratin in it, but also conditions and keeps your lashes healthy and shiny!

2. Who is best suited for the YUMI™ lash lift?

The YUMI™ lash lift is suited for those who have strong, healthy lashes! If you have weaker or thinner lashes, we recommend you try out the lash growth serum EYENVY, to grow and strengthen your lashes before the procedure for best results! For those lucky ladies with long and strong natural lashes, the lash lift can look comparable to eyelash extensions!

Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour3. Can pregnant ladies get the YUMI™ lift?

Yes! The YUMI™ lash treatment is 100% safe for new moms! However the new hormones surrounding the pregnancy may hinder the YUMI™ products from completely performing the service. If you decide to go ahead with the YUMI™ treatment, please do so at your own discretion, and understand there may be no effect on the natural lashes. (Unfortunately due to store policy, Prép Beauty Parlour is unable to offer full refunds for any lash services).

4. How should I prep for my service?

Before your appointment, please refrain from using any eye makeup or remove it before you come to your appointment. This it to avoid any extra added sensitivity surrounding the eye area.

For 24 hours prior, we also ask that you avoid using any growth or lash serums as this may cause the lashes to not lift during the service.

5. Can I get the YUMI™ treatment while I still have lash extensions on?

Unfortunately as the treatment is an enhancement on your natural lashes, the lash extensions will get in the way of the treatment. We also do not want to be adding the perm solution to any synthetic lashes!

6. Can I get lash extensions while I have the YUMI™ lash lift?

Yes and no. Getting a lash lift if you naturally have stick straight, or super curly lashes can help get your natural lashes into a good ‘curve’ and make it easier to apply lash extensions. However if you have naturally long lashes, then get extensions after the lash lift treatment, your natural lashes will be too curvy for the synthetic lash to be applied.

7. Is the treatment vegan friendly?

Yes! The YUMI™ lash lift treatment is vegan, non toxic, hypo allergenic, paraben frees cruelty free, and formaldehyde free!

PREP LOGOSo you’ve heard about strip lashes, and lash extensions, but what about lash lifts?

We’ve discussed lash lifts a few times in the past, but we still get plenty of questions regarding the differences between the two lash lift services we offer, procedure, aftercare, etc. I know that when I get any special treatment, I love to read all about it! Even down to the ingredients they use! Are you the same? If so, let’s hop right into it!

First things first, a lash lift is not the same as lash extensions. It does not add length and does not require fills every 2-3 weeks. It is perfect for those lucky ladies with naturally long lashes that just point straight down. Or for those with many long lashes that are too heavy to stay in a curl. The answer to all your miseries? Yumi Keratin Lash Lift. Trust us, we’ve seen the results, and we’re in love! Essentially what the lash enhancing treatment does is bring out the best in your natural lashes. It will lift and curl your lashes so it stays perfectly curled for at least 6-8 weeks! (Of course, some of us have different lash cycles and thus, may affect the longevity of the lashes.) Interested in learning the process? Keep reading below!

If you’re a lover of lash extensions, then you’ll be very familiar with the first steps of the lash lift. Similarly, a gel pad is laid to prevent any of the lash tint to get into your eye. Certified Prép technicians will then apply a silicon bump to lay your lashes on. The sizes of the silicon bump can vary as it determines the curve and curl of your natural lashes. If you have shorter natural lashes, we would most likely used the smallest sized bump, if we use the largest one, your lashes would be flat (This is sometimes used in a procedure that relaxes the lash lift)!

During the YUMI Lash lift, your lashes will then get lifted and perming solution will be applied to each individual lash. The lashes now begin lifting/perming! A fixing solution is then apply over to hold the lashes onto the bump the proper amount of time. Lastly, the lash tint is applied to darken light lashes! Did you know that many brunettes often have blonde tips on their lashes? Tinting them help bring out the length!

Prép Beauty Parlour is proud to announce that we will now be carrying and offering YUMI™ products as well as services! We are so excited to be part of the YUMI™ family and provide more services to cater to all of your needs! Now let’s move on and explain what the hype with the YUMI™ Lash Treatment is!

For starters, any YUMI™ Lash Lift with Keratin Treatment can only be performed by a certified YUMI™ technician. The process is similar to our regular lash lift (Keep reading to learn about the process!), however, the revolutionary YUMI™ is designed to have greater benefits to natural lashes with minimal to no damageBest YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour.

What’s the process of a lash lift you ask? Although it may sounds scary, a lash lift is essentially a painless and safe way to semi- permanently curl your lashes! It’s perfect for ladies who fear the lash curler (guilty!!), have lush, long lashes that droop down, or just any ladies that love the way their lashes look curled! A lash lift eliminates the need to curl your lashes every morning, leaving you to wake up with already curled lashes! Flawless! For more on lash lifts, click HERE!

 

The process is simple. Your Prép technician will prep the surface and lay a gel pad to ensure none of the solution will touch your skin, baby lashes, etc. A silicon bump is then laid on top for your top lashes to sit on top. The larger the bump– the bigger and looser the curl and vice versa! It should last you from 4-6+ (We have gotten 12 weeks too!) weeks depending on your natural lashes and lash cycle!

So what is the difference with YUMI™? YUMI™ lift uses advanced technology and technique to lift all of the lashes individually. This allows your lashes to appear longer, fuller, and darker!

What does it mean when you get a YUMI™ lash lift? Unlike lash extensions, you don’t have to worry about getting fills, removals, or any touch- up treatments! There is no maintenance, no parabens, and no harsh chemicals!

Best YUMI™ Lash Treatment Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

After receiving the treatment we ask that you don’t touch water for at least 24-48 hours. After, you can proceed to go swimming, play sports, enter a sauna, and still continue to use makeup and eye creams that contain oils! With the YUMI™ lashes, you are able to sleep in any position without worrying about your lashes crimping, wash your face- using cotton pads directly on the eye
