You may remember when I got my eyebrows tinted
for the first time. No one could tell I did it, and the extra hint of color made a big difference. I didn’t need to fill in my brow, and it enhanced my blue eyes even when I wasn’t wearing makeup.
Well, I was back at Sine Qua Non salon (this time for a haircut) and decided to get my lashes tinted on a whim. I always wondered and finally did it.
Word on the street was that when you darken your eyelashes you’ll find there’s no need to apply mascara. Unless you want that inky lash look, which is always pretty for a night out, tinted lashes means you can put down your wand for about 6 weeks, which is how long it generally takes for the dye to fade. I had to see for myself.
Here are my lashes before:
Here are my lashes during the process. The whole thing takes about 20 minutes. The dye does tingle/burn for a couple of minutes, but it’s bearable.
Here are my lashes after:
: I loved the result. It was a pleasure to be mascara free. The difference is subtle, but I really did feel that my lashes looked fuller, darker and pretty 24/7. If I did anything to them, I just curled them with a lash curler. I especially noticed how my bottom lashes stood out, which usually only happens with mascara. I haven’t tinted my lashes since, and I wouldn’t do it regularly. That said, I’d consider doing it once in awhile. Summer is a good time to try it because then you don’t have to worry about runny mascara.
Do you see a difference? Would you get your lashes professionally tinted?
