Hi Jamie! Do you have any thoughts on lash tinting? I have fair skin and red hair and light eyelashes. I am looking to try something the accentuates them, but still looks natural. Thoughts?



Hi Ashley,


I’m all for lash tinting if you feel like it will make your life easier. Personally, I like mascara but if you’d rather run out the door and not think about it I am TOTALLY with you.  A few things to consider…

Reader Question: Eyelash Tinting

Go somewhere reputable for eyelash tinting.

Thankfully the internet provides us all with the ability to read reviews, because when it comes to anything with your face, I always swear by the rule of NOT skimping. That means, I’m not about the Groupon for Botox, brow tinting, etc.  That said, Benefit Cosmetics actually does lash tinting and since they’re a super reputable brand I would 100% trust their people.  You can also use Yelp to find a local expert if you’re not near a Benefit store.

It doesn’t last forever (or even a few months).

Basically lash tinting lasts as long as my blonde hair color…typically 4-6 weeks. If you’re cool with that than awesome but just realize this is something you’re going to have to do often (and it will add up $$).

Your eyes WILL burn.

I’ve never done eyelash tinting but when asking around every single person said it 100% does sting during the application process. Not a big deal if it’s something you really want, but if you’re super sensitive it might not be for you.  A friend described it as “slightly spicy, like hot pepper.”

Say bye to your oil-based makeup remover.

Again, this isn’t a biggie but it’s something to consider. If you’re all about that twelve-step Korean skincare regimen, think twice.  You can’t use anything oil-based on your eyes, as it will strip the tint (instead, use a cream cleanser).

I hope this helps- let me know how it goes! 🙂

  1. It is believed that the eyes are the gate to the soul and this is why beautiful eyes attract so much attention. If dark circles are your biggest under eye concern, Revitol eye cream is the best cream to buy. This potent little pot is brimming with vitamin C to brighten eyes. This cream targets the delicate capillaries and deeper layers of the skin. You can definitely hide some signs of aging but hiding aging signs around eyes is impossible.

  2. Eyelash tinting is a fairly quick procedure. The whole procedure can take as little as 15 minutes. The effects can last for as long as four to six weeks. Though the lashes are permanently tinted, they usually fall out within a month or two. So a proper care is very essential. Not even of the eyes only but also of our skin. For my skin, I always prefer the best. I like to use Dermology skin care products because they are natural and does not cause any side effect to the skin. I was very impressed with the results. It’s truly a must try for everyone.

  3. I like that you pointed out how eyelash tinting could typically last for as long as 4-6 weeks. It seems my wife wants to do something for her eyelashes and she is looking for a good cosmetic procedure for them. Eyelash tinting seems pretty good, so I’ll suggest it to her later.
