Eyelash Tinting Procedure
Clients choose from brown, black or the more dramatic ‘blue-black’ (that’s the one I get; it’s a very dark black). If you’re a contact lens wearer, you remove them. You sit, wearing a protective towel on the neck so the dye doesn’t get on clothing. The esthetician applies a protective cream, such as Vaseline, under the eyes, which prevents the skin from getting stained. Then a thin cotton pad shaped in a curve goes on top of the cream. You shut your eyes, and the tint is applied to lashes with a fine brush, and allowed to set for at least 10 minutes.
Small pieces of cardboard are placed under the eyes after they are closed. The esthetician will then use a cotton applicator dipped in dye (which is normally vegetable-based) to apply the color solution to the eyebrows, eyelashes or both. Eyes remain closed for about fifteen minutes in order to let the solution dry. The esthetician will wash away excess dye with soap and water, and remove any stains from the skin.
How long does Eyelash Tinting Last?
Both the eyebrow and eyelash tinting treatment will last up to 2 weeks. However, you can build upon your tints to keep the look from fading over time.
Who is Eyelash Tinting for?
If you have extremely fair hair that makes lashes nearly invisible or your eyebrows are a different color than your hair is, you may be the perfect candidate for eyelash and eyebrow tinting. Likewise if you’re tired of runny mascara or if you’re finally noticing grayssprouting in your brows.
