Lash Tinting—What It Is, And Why You Need It

Not everyone is born with long, fluttery eyelashes that make for perfect doe-eyes. Most of us need a touch of mascara to bring a little bit of drama to our eyes. But for a minute, try and imagine what your life would look like if you could throw away your mascara and put down the fake eyelashes.
There would be no dreading a smudge under your eyes, no fear that your fake lashes would fall off, and you could actually use the time spent doing your lashes as an extra five minutes in bed.

Wondering what we’re talking about? Here’s everything you need to know about eyelash tinting.

So, What Even If An Eyelash Tint?

Eyelash tinting is a procedure that intensifies your natural lashes by darkening them with the help of a dye. This dye is similar to what a person would use on their hair, except it’s a lot gentler, so it doesn’t irritate the sensitive area around your eye.
An added benefit of eyelash tinting is that your lashes instantly look thicker without any mascara. And unlike mascara, the tint lasts a much longer time.

How Long Does It Last?

This greatly depends on the color of your lashes, the tint you opt for, and the texture of your lash hair. However, the average eyelash tint lasts around a month. Over time, your lashes will start to appear lighter because the tinted hair will grow in and fall off as part of the natural process.
You can, however, prolong the tint by avoiding harsh skincare products and harsh sunlight. Switching to more gentle makeup and skincare will also slow down the fading process.

What Is Lash Tint Made Up Of?

Eyelash tint dyes are usually made of vegetable dyes to make sure they aren’t harmful to the sensitive area around the eye. This reduces your chance of developing allergic reactions as well. However, in case you’ve had allergic reactions to chemical-based products in the past, it’s best to book a consultation appointment and discuss the issue first.
