Lash tints are a happy medium between mascara and falsies, giving you a wide-eyed, long-lashed look for a relatively affordable price and with little upkeep. If you’re someone who regularly gets their brows shaped and tinted, then adding a lash tint to your routine will barely make a dent in both your budget and time.
What is it?
An eyelash tint consists of adding a special dye to your eyelashes, giving you weeks of dark, full lashes without the assistance of mascara. You recline in a salon chair and a technician applies the dye to your lashes while you keep your eyes closed for about 10 minutes. It’s a quick, relatively painless process.
Is it safe?
We use high quality products and have a lot of experience. The eye is a much more sensitive and important area than your eyebrows, so even if you get your brows tinted at a local nail salon, that doesn’t mean you necessarily want to get your lashes tinted there as well.
Will my eye or skin become irritated?
There is a chance that your eyes will burn or that the skin near your lashes will become a bit irritated. Most salons will flush your eyes out with saline if they are in pain once the first eight minutes have passed. If you have especially sensitive skin or have eye problems, you might want to avoid this particular service. That said, it is safe for contact lens wearers.
How long does it last?
Results typically last 3-6 weeks, depending on how much you touch your eyes, how often you wash your face, and what kind of cleanser you use. You’ll want to steer clear of oil cleansers and oil-based makeup removers for the time being. The less you run your eyes under water, the better. You can always stick to face wipes, and use a Q-tip to use a cream cleanser and remove eye makeup without touching your lashes. Buhler mentions the client would need to get their lashes tinted every three weeks.
