What is eyelash tinting?
Eyelash tinting is a process where your eyelashes are dyed to make them look darker. It depends on your skin type, hair colour etc. on what the end result will be, but you can get your lashes tinted black, blue, shades of brown, grey or whatever you wish.
It does not make your eyelashes longer, it’s purpose it to give them colour to highlight their true length and make them darker.
Who is eyelash tinting good for?
It is particularly great for people who are sporty (and sweaty) because they do not need mascara! Those who wear contact lenses also benefit as well as those who do not have the time to apply makeup daily. For woman who have naturally blonde lashes eyelash tinting creates a dramatic look around the clock.
The best benefit of eyelash tinting it is that it is 24/7, unlike mascara, which has to be applied every morning, and washed off every night.
Eyelash tinting is also great if you are going on holiday! Having dyed eyelashes means you can jump into the water and not worry about black smudgy makeup appearing under your eyes.
Is eyelash tinting safe?
Eyelash tinting is not dangerous, with the dye typically being made from a vegetable-based dye. This minimises irritation around the eyes and is the reason that the tinting is not permanent. It is however important to go to a salon that has experienced beauty therapist who have been doing eyelash tinting for some time to avoid issues with the eyes such stinging, watery eyes and in sever cases reactions of the eye.
Can I wear mascara after having my eyelashes tinted?
Of course you can!
Can short lashes be tinted too?
They can be, but it can be bit challenging. In rare cases the tinting can dye the skin (this usually only lasts for a few days) so it is best to call the salon first and ask their advice if you have unusually short lashes.
What about deep-set eyes?
Deep set-eyes are a little more challenging than normal. When having the procedure, you must close your eyes in order for the dye to be put on the top of the top lashes and this can be harder with deep-set eyes. Again it is best to call the salon first and ask their advice if you have unusually deep-set eyes.
How long does it take?
Because the whole procedure takes around 15-30 minutes, it can fit into the busiest of schedules.
How much does it cost?
Prices vary, depending on the salon you are having the tint done at and the experience of the beauty therapist. Eyelash tinting typically ranges from $25 to $35 individually but prices will vary when it is combined with other offers (especially Flossie offers).
What is the procedure?
Once you arrive at the salon, you beauty therapist will place cotton under your closed eyes and then apply a small amount of vegetable dye onto your eyelashes. After ten minutes, the dye is removed with water with the results could last around four to six weeks.
There are a number of dyes available, so ensure you talk to your beauty therapist about which one they are using before you start your procedure.
