Tint won't lift tint. The only tint that will lift through tint is 10/0+12% but you won't get a level 8 I doubt.
Take a look at magma /07+, the client has asked you to provide a service, and unless they have an extremely good reason I wouldn't let them tell you how to do your job. Personally I think it's almost unachievable if you don't use bleach or magma which is bleach based. If you were working on a natural level 4 then it's a totally different kettle of fish.

Number 1 rule of hair colour - tint will not lift tint.

Your options are bleach, or lift and deposit like magma, which as you're toning afterwards would just a waste of product.

You also can try 10/0 which breaks that number 1 rule due to the ammonia content. Although I feel this is unreliable and inconsistent if you're after nice even highlights.

I was also thinking lift first with bleach and then apply the wella colour she liked after it’s been lifted what you think

Either will work fine, with both methods you'll still have to take in to consideration the tones that you will expose when lifting. If it was me I'd look at using 6% and see how it lift, take a strand test?
