Have you ever had your eyelashes, waxed, or threaded before? The mystical effect of perfect eyelash arches is better than getting a fresh haircut at anytime! It brings your self-confidence way up and make your feel just like a goddess!
Such features as your eyelashes give your face geometric balance and make your eyes or eye color stand out bold. Having polished eyebrows requires more than just getting rid of those pesky, stray hairs every two weeks! Traditionally, not matching your lashes to your hair color is an awful mistake to make and is still considered as a no-no today. Well, unless you really want to stand out from the crowd, but I doubt most women are willing to put themselves through that! In today’s world, fashion shows around the globe are stocked with gorgeous models, strutting down the runway with bold, brown, black, or colored arches. Taking a few minutes each week or even day, to darken or lighten your eyebrows adds valuable time to your morning beauty routine. But, you may ask, is there a simpler, more efficient way to tint your eyelashes? Yes there is, and it is called Semi-permanent Tinting!
Now, what exactly is Semi-permanent Tinting? Well, here is a small tidbit of information. Semi-permanent hair color seems to have a smaller amount of molecules than today’s temporary dyes. These dyes tend to only partially penetrate the hair shaft. Just for this reason only, the color will most likely survive repeated washing, typically 4–6 shampoos or for just a few weeks. This means you won’t have to continually dye your eyelashes everyday, but instead once every week or so, depending on your washing habits.

Having long, lustrous eyelashes will make a world of difference to your public appearance. But who wants to put on mascara every day if you don’t have to, right? Although these similar treatments have hit the mainstream, many have yet to try them out. Well, from researching out to do this from various sources on the internet, this is what we have come to find.
How the process works?
They use a vegetable-based dye on both the eyelashes and the eyebrows for added definition. Think of it as a glazing for these hairs, similar to varathane. During a brow tinting, an aesthetician will first apply Vaseline to the skin surrounding the eyebrow or eyelash. This process will protect the skin and prevent the dye from bleeding onto it. Then the tint is painted directly onto the eyebrow. The dye will then set for 10 minutes. Any residue that occurs is gently removed with a soft, wet cloth. Keep in mind however, the tint will not work like a tattoo. The dye will only color the existing hairs and not the root itself. Here is another important tip. If you use self-tanner, it’s best to skip it the week before you come in for your service, as the tanner can react badly with the dye.
Who should really try it?
Although a similar process, lash tinting takes around 20 minutes. “In addition to applying Vaseline around the eye, a protective pad is placed under the bottom lashes to cover the skin below,” explains the eyelash expert. “After the vegetable tint is applied onto the lashes on closed eyes, the dye will set for between five to eight minutes before theapplies a second coat of eyelash or eyebrow tint. After five to eight minutes, the lash pad is taken off and the eye area (including the eyelashes) are wiped clean with clean, wet cotton pads. This is to ensure no residue seeped inside the eye. If this were to occur, the eyes are rinsed with a saline solution.
Getting an eyelash and eyebrow tinting works for everyone! With lustrous, well-groomed brows, it gives your appearance look much more youthful. As well, the brow dye can be customized to any color you wish for. However, eyelash tints seem to work best on people with blonde or lighter-colored lashes. Many people have lashes that fade at the ends. So when they are tinted, they can look a lot longer than normal eyelashes do. This treatment is also helpful for women who have little time to spare. You can run out the door with absolutely no mascara at all and hit the gym, go to the beach or carry on with your daily routine and not have to worry about the mascara running down your face. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
How to make your eyelash and eyebrow treatment last?
The longevity of both the eyebrow and eyelash tinting treatment will last around three to six weeks, depending on your washing routine. However, you can build upon your eyelash tints, colors and shades to keep the look from fading over the course of time. Is there another way to keep the color from fading away? One helpful tip is to avoid oil-based wipes, cleansers or moisturizers. These products will dissolve your tints in quite a hurry and ultimately make your eyelashes return to their normal look. As for makeup wise, wearing mascara or brow pencil over your eyelash and eyebrow tint are absolutely fine.
Are there dangers in eyelash and eyebrow dying?
There are no FDA-approved permanent dyes or tints of eyelashes and eyebrows, so it is important to know what kind of product each salon uses before you set up an appointment for your eyelash treatment . Benefit only uses the best and safest products out there. This has to do with the semi-permanent tint which is vegetable-based. Therefore, there are absolutely no threat or danger of blindness what so ever. Tinting is very safe for all customers, men, women, and even expecting moms!
