Eyelash tinting gives your eye definition without having to use mascara and is perfect for when you are taking a vacation and will be in and out of the water a lot. It lasts until your natural eyelash falls out. But some people have concerns about whether or not it is safe. There are 2 key pieces of advice:
1. Ensure your eyelashes are tinted by an experienced professional.
2. Ensure that the proper dye is used.
At Kelowna Esthetics Studio, we have been tinting lashes for a while and have never had any problems. As with all treatments, there is always a risk of a negative reaction to the dyes used. If you have particularly sensitive skin, we recommend coming in for an allergy test of the products a few days before you want to have your eyelashes tinted to see if you have any negative reaction to the product.

What is in eyelash tint?
Eyelash tint is a dye which has been especially designed for use on eyelashes. At Kelowna Esthetics Studio, we mainly use RefectoCil although it is not the only brand available. RefectoCil is a vegan eyelash tint. We have the choice of brown, black or the most dramatic black which is called ‘blue-black’ and results in the darkest shade on the eyelashes - this is what most women choose.
Deciding whether to tint your eyelashes is a personal choice, and there is a risk no matter how small, as with with most beauty services.
