Lockdown number three is in full swing and we’re guessing that by now, bread baking is off the table. Should you be peering at your eyelashes in the mirror and wondering whether or not to try an eyelash tint, read on. Here’s all the important info on eyelash tints. We have included two of the best ones in case you decide they’re worth the hype.
Eyelash tinting does have its advantages. It means one less thing to worry about fixing (particularly for those with light lashes). Professional, in-salon tinting only achieves results for the time of the growth cycle. This means that approximately every 5 weeks, you will need to redo them. A DIY job obviously provides more gentle ingredients (in case of error); thus, the results will be short-lived.
How Long Does Eyelash Tinting Take?
Including the reading of instructions, it will only take 15 minutes at most.
How Long Does It Last?
This is dependent on the product, but generally speaking, a DIY kit will last a month.
Is it Dangerous?
Not at all – unless you decide to dye your eyeball. No, seriously eyelash tints will not harm your lashes and are safe to use.
The cost for a professional tint can be anywhere between £15 – £40. A DIY tint may cost between £10 – £20. Yes, they don’t last as long, but you can usually get a few applications worths – so definitely more cost-effective.
Is Eyelash Tinting Worth the Hype?
Should you regularly have your eyelashes tinted, then a DIY kit is well worth the hype. There’s no doubt that tinting your eyelashes offer a fabulous definition. At a time when we’re only displaying our eyes, a tint will ensure your lashes look their best without having to reach for your mascara. This is especially handy if you have to be up and on a Zoom meeting the moment you wake up. However, not so worthwhile if you have a luxury mascara in your makeup bag and no scheduled meetings.
Should you decide to give a DIY eyelash tint a whirl, we recommend Eyelure’s Pro-Lash Dylash in Black, £8.98, www.amazon.co.uk
This kit takes only 5 minutes to apply and has enough formula for several applications. Certainly, a worthwhile buy!
Another great one is Julienne’s Eyebrow Eyelash Tinting Kit in Midnight, £10.17, www.amazon.co.uk.
This contains everything you need for brows and lashes and will provide a few applications too!
