What To Expect With A Lash Tint

Do you dislike having to use messy mascara every day? Do you have fair colored or thin eyelashes and hate having to coat them daily only to have it run down if you even THINK about sweating? Never fear, eyelash tinting has you covered…and colored! 

Imagine not having to redo your mascara over again because you blinked accidentally and got in your eye. It’s happened to the best of us. With eyelash tinting, you can skip that messy middleman and get right to bold, noticeable lashes

What exactly is eyelash tinting?

Eyelash tinting is the process of adding a semi-permanent dye to your eyelashes, giving you vibrant, full lashes for weeks without having to use mascara or false eyelashes. Though tinting alone won’t actually make them longer, darkening them gives the illusion of thicker, longer lashes.  Eyelash tinting is the happy medium between mascara and false eyelashes.

What is an eyelash tint appointment like?

Eyelash tinting is a relatively quick process. You will recline in a salon chair and a lash artist then applies the dye to your lashes while you keep your eyes closed for about 10 minutes. Before your lash artist applies the dye, you will have a consultation to make the tint and application a perfect match for you. From start to finish, the whole appointment should take around 30 minutes, though, it can vary depending on where you go, how fast the lash artist is, etc. This is one of those awesome beauty care treatments you can go get done over lunch. 

How long does lash tinting last?

The typical eyelash tint lasts about a month, depending on certain factors, like how much you touch your eyes, how often you wash your face, and what kind of cleanser you use, etc. Your lashes will start getting lighter and lighter because your lashes will, over time, slowly fall out and be replaced with new lashes, as is natural. Make sure to get your money’s worth by avoiding any harsh skincare products and limit prolonged sun exposure.

Is eyelash tinting safe?

Eyelash tinting is a very safe process, but making sure you choose an artist who is properly trained with the right equipment is crucial to having an easy, enjoyable experience. The dye salons and spas use is perfectly safe, non toxic and vegetable based. If you wear them, make sure to take your contact lenses out before the treatment, but afterwards it is perfectly safe to wear them. As with any specialized treatment, make sure to see a professional lash artist.

Is lash tinting affordable?

Lash tinting, considering the results, is extremely affordable. Median range for this treatment is around $30. Different factors can influence the amount, such as location, the experience of the technician and other services that may be included.

Does lash tinting hurt?

Lash tinting shouldn’t hurt at all. The little shields that block you from getting dye on you may feel odd at first, but they are perfectly harmless. Your technician will make sure you are as comfortable as possible. 

Am I a good fit for eyelash tinting?

The best results for eyelash tinting will come if you have naturally blonde or lighter colored eyelashes – as lighter lashes will have the most dramatic results after the tint. Darker lashes won’t get much of a color boost, as tinting does not add length or volume, so this service is definitely directed at people with fairer colored eyelash hair..

For those that want a natural lash look with a little extra bounce and lift, a lash lift is the perfect solution. Lash lifts use your own lashes to perm against a silicon pad to achieve a natural looking lift/curl. A lash lift is perfect for those with straight or downward facing natural lashes to give your eyes and face an instant lift. Results last up to 9 weeks.
