Step-by-step guide on how to tint your lashes at home, safely
- Always Do a Patch Test before
A patch test is necessary keeping in mind the safety of your skin and eyes. Patch test should be taken 48 hours before the actual application. Even if you opt for a professional hair or lashes tinting you still need to do a patch test.
Simply apply the tint behind your ears and keep it for 48 hours to see if the skin becomes red and/ or irritable. If nothing happens, the tint is good to go for you.
- Remove All Eye Makeup
A makeup removal product or a face cleanser that suits you best and is gentle on your skin and eyes will help you to remove all makeup residues between your lashes. Any makeup residue left can ruin your tinting process.
3. Customise the Wand
Lash tinting kits always come with a wand, just like a mascara for coloring your eyelashes. You just have to gently bend this wand at a 90 degree angle. This will make the whole process less messy and a lot easier. You can tightly grip the wand for application.
- Apply the color
When applying the color over your eyelashes with the wand, coat all your hair properly and brush the product thoroughly on both the sides, under and on top of your lashes. If you twist your hand slightly, while applying the eyelash tint, you will get a fuller and better coverage of each of your lashes.
5. Home lash tint timings
Eyelashes look best when colored dark. And to achieve such dark, stunning colors on your lashes, keep a record of your timings and start the timer as soon as the last eye is done.
- Target those tips
Here comes the final tip, but the most important one to do a home lash tint like a pro. Focus on coloring the ends of your eyelashes minutely. Make sure that even the tiniest part of your eyelash tips are covered, as these are the most exposed parts to the sun, which lose colour the fastest.
