What is Eyelash Tinting…And Is It for Me?


An eyelash tint is a very popular beauty treatment that gives you the option of going mascara-less for longer. A tint gives you the look of mascaraed lashes, in a twenty-minute session with a beauty therapist. There are home use eyelash tinting kits available, but it’s not advisable to tint your own lashes, mainly because you are dealing with an area that is so close to your eyes, and also because there is a chance of a reaction that you should not get with a qualified therapist.

An eyelash tint involves adding a special dye to your eyelashes, as you lay in on comfortable beauty bed in our salon treatment room. The beauty therapist applies the lash dye to your lashes, and all you need to do is keep your eyes closed for about ten minutes.


What Are the Advantages of Lash Tinting?

Having lashes tinted will certainly save you money on mascara, but whether it is something you need depends on the length and shade of your natural lashes. If your natural lashes are very pale, or short, you will 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; lashes are naturally lighter at their tip.


Is Eyelash Tinting Safe?

Lash tinting has been around for many years and is enjoyed by many people, but there are a few things you should always look for when you have a lash tinting. Always look for a professionally qualified beauty therapist and find someone who uses top-quality professional products. It is perfectly safe as long as your beauty therapist follows the correct procedures, including a patch test to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to the products. It is 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.


What Should I Look Out for When Choosing a Lash Tinting Professional?

Firstly, check the level of cleanliness, and opt for a clean and organised salon, with good sanitary procedures. Always ask what products they use.


Does the Lash Tint Irritate the Eyes?

There is always a possibility of some short-term irritation with a lash tint, as you are adding chemicals to a sensitive area of your face. Most professionals know this and so if you experience any discomfort, let the beauty therapist know so that they can flush your eyes out with saline if necessary.


Contact lens wearers are fine to have an eyelash tint, but it is 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?

As with most beauty services, results will vary, but typically you can expect a lash tint to last for between three and six weeks. The length of time it lasts depends on things such as how often you wash your face, which type of cleanser you use and if you touch your eyes a lot. You will be advised to avoid oil-based cleansers and makeup removers too.
