What is eyelash tinting?
Eyelash tinting is a process that has been used for many years to darken the lashes. It is a common procedure, especially among people who have lighter-colored lashes. The process was said to have started in Asia, where women would use tea to stain their eyelashes. Eyelash tinting is now done with various products, the most popular being eyelash dye. The dye can be either a liquid or a paste, and it’s usually applied with a brush.
At our Blue Springs and Northland location, our eyelash technicians will start by cleansing your lashes and applying the product. You will need to keep your eyes closed for about ten minutes while the product sets. After that, you can open your eyes and gently rub any excess off your lashes. The process usually takes around 15 minutes, but it can vary depending on the person’s lashes.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits of eyelash tinting. Some of the most notable include:
- A quick and easy way to darken lashes without using mascara
- Lashes will be noticeably darker after the first treatment
- The dye lasts around 4-6 weeks, so there’s no need for frequent touch-ups
- It can be an excellent alternative for people who don’t like to wear mascara
- Tinting can help lengthen and thicken lashes
What results can you expect?
Lashes will be darker after the first treatment, but they can appear lighter after swimming or shower. Water removes some of the dye from your lashes. On average, it takes about three treatments for your eyes to fully adjust to the tint. If you want even thicker or fuller-looking lashes, then leave at least one month in between each appointment.
What should you do before and after treatment?
Before having your lashes tinted, you should ensure that your eyes are clean and free of any makeup or eye products. You might want to consider scheduling a tint after a long day since it needs time to set after applying. The aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself, so after the dye has been applied, you need to let it sit for at least 10 minutes. After this period has passed, follow up with an aftercare ointment such as tea tree oil or petroleum jelly.
If you have sensitive eyes or don’t like to wear makeup, this may be an excellent option for you. While many people enjoy the aftercare of eyelash tinting after a long day at work, some report that it can irritate their eyes after having their lashes dyed. If you’re worried about irritation after your appointment, speak with your eyelash technician and see if they recommend applying an ointment before going home after treatment. They should also explain how long it will take for the dye to set in after application, so you know what to expect when leaving the salon/clinic.
