What Is Eyelash Tinting?
Think of lash tinting as a semipermanent dye job for your lashes. Tinting won’t add curl, length, or volume to your lashes (you’ll need to try a lash lift or lash extensions for that), but it will darken and intensify their color with permanent, cream-based dyes (and in some cases, a semipermanent vegetable-based dye), says Clementina Richardson, founder of Envious Lashes in NYC, where I went to get my lashes tinted for the first time.
Eyelash Tint Benefits
If you have naturally light or blonde lashes, you’ll definitely see the most dramatic difference with an eyelash tint,
Risks & Side Effects
Depends on who you ask. The FDA, for example, isn’t down with lash tinting. As of now, the FDA hasn’t approved any color additives for permanent dyeing or tinting of the eyelashes, which means that it’s illegal for salons and studios to offer lash tinting in certain states. And if you have sensitive eyes or sensitive skin, proceed with caution, since certain dyes can cause irritation or even injury to the eye (scary, but gotta say it).
However, if you ask the internet/celebrities/the entirety of the beauty world, lash tinting is considered a pretty low-risk beauty treatment. That said, the safety and efficacy of lash tinting totally depends on where you get it done. As a rule: Only go to well-reviewed salons or studios with licensed lash technicians (sorry, Groupon). And obviously, do your homework before making an appointment—e.g., call ahead and read all the reviews online.
How Long Do Eyelash Tints Last?
Eyelash tints last for about four weeks. The dye is permanent, so the tint itself shouldn’t fade, but as your lashes fall out and new un-tinted lashes grow in their place, you’ll notice your eyelashes looking lighter and lighter. For the best, longest-lasting result, Richardson says to keep the eye area dry for 24 hours after your tinting treatment and use oil-free makeup removers and creams around your eye area.
How Long The Treatment Take?
Literally tinting your eyelashes is so fast—the dye is painted on, then sits on your lashes for just 1o minutes. From start to finish, the whole thing takes just 30 minutes, though, of course, it can vary depending on where you go, how fast the lash tech is, etc.
