Lash and brow tinting is exactly what it sounds like: it’s when dye is brushed right onto your eyelashes or eyebrows to give them a new color, shape or thickness. This is a very fast and easy treatment and it will usually only take about 30 minutes to have both treatments done. There is also no downtime after receiving this treatment.
Before the treatment begins, the esthetician will go over your various options and discuss what you would like to achieve from the treatment. They will make recommendations based on your skin, hair and eye color and then will help you choose the dye color that is right for you.
For brow tinting, dye is directly applied to the eyebrows and the esthetician will let it sit there for a few minutes, to allow the color to take effect. The excess dye will then be removed.
Eyelash tinting involves a few more steps, but is also an easy process. A protective eye pad will be placed onto your eyes to protect them and during this part of the treatment, you will need to keep your eyes closed. The dye will be brushed onto your lashes and just like with the brow tinting, the color will need to stay on for a few minutes before it is wiped off. The eye pad can then be removed.
For most people who receive this treatment, they will have results that can last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. There is not a drastic change that will happen when the results are fading. Instead, the dye will be subtle in its fading until your eyelashes and eyebrows have gone back to their usual color. Results can last for longer if you make sure you follow the after care instructions that were given by your esthetician. After care instructions include:
- Being careful as to what cleansers you use on your face. You want to find a gentle, oil-free cleanser or eye make remover
- Wearing sunglasses and a sunhat when going into the sunlight. UV light causes the fading process to accelerate
Lash and brow tinting is also an appealing treatment because it is generally very affordable. This is a great treatment option for those who are looking to save time in their makeup routine by already having fuller eyelashes and eyebrows. Depending on the dye that you use, you can also have a more dramatic look that can normally only be achieved by using makeup.
