An eyelash tint is a very popular treatment that gives you the option of going mascara-less for longer. A tint gives you the look of mascaraed lashes, in a ten-minute session..

What Are the Advantages of Lash Tinting?
Having lashes tinted will save you money on mascara, but whether it’s something you need depends on the length and shade of your natural lashes. If your natural lashes are very pale, or short, you’ll see the most difference. Shorter, darker lashes will also benefit from the effects as the tint can give the impression of longer, fuller eye lashes since lashes are naturally lighter at their tips.
Is Eyelash Tinting Safe?
It’s perfectly safe as long as the correct procedures are followed, including a patch test to ensure that you don’t have an allergic reaction to the products. It’s very rare, but always better to be on the safe side! Regular hair dye should never, ever be used on your lashes, and if you have any eye infections or any irritation around the eyes, avoid having your lashes tinted as it may make the condition worse. If you have sensitive skin in the eye area, you might also want to avoid this procedure. Contact lens wearers are fine to have an eyelash tint, but it’s recommended that they remove lenses before any lash services to prevent the possibility of irritation or infection if the product does come in contact with the eyes.
How Long Does an Eyelash Tint Last?
