Eyelash Tinting and Coloring Techniques


Eyelash tinting is a great way to enhance your natural lashes without the need for mascara. It involves the application of a special dye to your eyelashes, giving you weeks of dark, full lashes without the use of makeup. Let’s explore this beauty trend in more detail, from its benefits, to how it’s done, and everything you need to know before you go.

Benefits of Eyelash Tinting

From helping your eyes pop to saving you time in the morning, there are several benefits to eyelash tinting:

  • Natural look: Eyelash tinting gives your lashes a long, voluminous look you’d usually need mascara to achieve—except it’s all natural.
  • Saves time: Eyelash tinting can save you precious minutes in the morning. You won’t need to apply makeup to your lashes to make them fuller and darker.
  • Great for those with sensitivities: Eyelash tinting is a great alternative for those who are allergic or sensitive to makeup.
  • Works well with different lash types: Whether you’ve got long, thick lashes or short, thin ones, eyelash tinting works well with all types.


The procedure is quite quick, affordable, and the results can last up to four to six weeks. Here are the steps typically involved in eyelash tinting:

  1. Your eyelashes are thoroughly cleaned and dried. This is to ensure that the tint adheres properly to your lashes.
  2. A protective cream like petroleum jelly may be applied around your eye area to protect your skin from the dye.
  3. The specialist will then apply the tint to your lashes, ensuring every lash is covered.
  4. You will then keep your eyes closed for about 10-15 minutes. This is to allow the dye to fully absorb into your lashes.
  5. Once the time is up, the specialist will gently remove any excess dye using a damp cotton pad or cloth.
