Eyelash tinting is an alternative to eyelash extensions that is a) cheaper and b) less maintenance! Eyelash tinting involves applying a dye to the lashes, and allowing it to set. Eyelash tinting is a great service to have prior to a vacation where you may not want to be applying mascara every day.
What's involved in eyelash tinting?
When you come to Kelowna Esthetics Studio for an eyelash tint, you will be asked to fill out a form to ensure there are no problems or concerns with conducting the lash tinting service.
Next, you will lie on the warm, heated bed, and your lashes will be completely cleaned to ensure no traces of makeup remain. Vaseline will be applied around your eye to ensure the tint does not stain your skin. An eyelash pad is placed under the eye, underneath the lower lashes and the eyelids are closed.
Next, the tint is mixed with the developer, and applied to the lashes. The tint develops for up to 15 minutes - some ladies have sensitivities to the tint/developer and can find it a little uncomfortable after 8-10 minutes, in which case the tint is removed. It will still tint the lashes in 8-10 minutes, but the longer it stays on the lashes, the darker it will be and the longer it will last!
Once the 15 minutes have passed, your eyelashes are rinsed with warm water until completely clean, and voila! Beautiful, tinted eyelashes!
Here is a before and after picture (of tinting myself!) where one eye has had the eyelashes tinted (left) and one eye has not yet been tinted (right).
