Eyelash tint is a kind of hair dye created to specifically use on and enhance your eyelashes. Eyelash tinting has virtually the same effect as traditional mascara. It works to visibly thicken, darken, and lengthen the appearance of eyelashes without rubbing off, clotting, or smudging. The treatment is safe and quick and is performed in our med spa.
Whether you’re going to the beach to swim or soak up the sun, no need to worry about runny, smeary mascara eyes. Maybe you’re just curious about the dramatic, alluring effects of thick, dark lashes. In either case, eyelash tinting might just be the special beauty treatment you’ve been waiting for.
How does it work?
The eyelash tinting process will temporarily dye your eyelashes. The goal is to achieve the appearance of mascara without the hassle. The dye that’s used to tint eyelashes the color black is typically vegetable-based. This reduces the risk of irritation around the eyes where skin is more sensitive. Our team at Spa Black will work with you to determine the most suitable color for your needs.
How long does the tinting process take?
The eyelash tinting process takes about 10-15 minutes from start to finish. First, small stickers are placed all around your eyelids in order to keep the dye out of the actual eyeball area. Next, the dye is carefully applied to the lower and upper lashes. It then has to set for a minimum of five minutes to penetrate your lashes fully. Last, the dye is carefully washed off. The result is darker, more noticeable lashes. In most cases, the lashes remain dark approximately 3-5 weeks.
What you should consider
Be aware that eyelash tinting isn’t a permanent cosmetic solution. In addition, some people are allergic to the dye used to tint lashes, although it’s very rare. Ask your aesthetician about the risk of allergic reactions to eyelash tint dye.
Who is a Good Candidate for Eyelash Tinting?
Eyelash tinting is especially great for individuals who participate in sports and tend to get sweaty since there’s no need for mascara. In addition, people who wear contact lenses can also benefit since they no longer have to worry about clumps of mascara getting into their eyes. Eyelash tinting will also create a very dramatic look for women with super-light eyelashes and make them stand out.
Benefits of Eyelash Tinting
Women who choose to tint their eyelashes on a regular basis enjoy many benefits. As stated, if your eyelashes are very light (blond), tinting them black will inevitably create a dramatic look overall. Unlike mascara that you have to apply every day, be careful not to smear, and tediously wash off every night, tinted lashes enable you to wake up looking as if you already have mascara on.
If you’re a super busy woman with an active lifestyle, play sports, or do a great deal of swimming, you probably stopped applying mascara since it won’t stay on anyway. However, eyelash tinting will give your eyes a more defined, polished look that’s 100 percent maintenance-free.
