Eyelash tinting has been a largely discussed phenomenon for quite a while now. If you are still unsure about what exactly it is, lets first take a quick look at the basic process and then analyse how safe it is.
Eyelash and brow tinting are processes through which you can get your eyelashes and eyebrows dyed. This lasts for around 4-6 weeks varying for each individual. The rationale behind dying your lashes and brows is the fact that it saves a lot of your time and you don’t have to put a good amount of make-up just to make your eyes look great.
If you have seen all those eyelash tinting before and after pictures, you might also think of this as a very fascinating process. One that has a lasting effect, and which saves you from the misery of using mascara and eye pencils for your brows which also not always have the perfect result.
Yes, we agree to the fact that eyelash tinting looks extremely aesthetic and natural, what you really need to think first is if it is really safe or not? One of the major reasons why people have this question in the first place is because the process is not approved by FDA. Any type of dye that has ever been used in salons for this process has never been approved for being applied on lashes or brows for that matter.
Now, regardless of not being approved, it is legal in some specific states while completely prohibited in others. Hence, if after reading this blog, you still think that you would want to give it a try, do make sure whether it is legal in your specific state or not.
Apart from the above factor, there are still a number of other side effects or possible issues that can occur after getting your lashes tinted. You might have haggled with question that is eyelash tinting worth it? Well, this is the part where you can decide for yourself!
The first and foremost issue could be of getting serious eye injuries. Even if very less in number, there have been cases where people have had issues with their eyes after the process.
Even if you do not think that keeping your eyes perfectly closed for about 8-10 minutes would be a problem, you need to realize that the skin of your eyelid is very thin. This is even more important for people with sensitive skin.
One of the last side effects which include irritation, itching or even redness of eyes in some cases can take place because of the fact that there is no set rule for the ingredients being used and so you can never be too sure!
Even after reading all of this, you think that you still need to try it at least once and see how it goes, we would recommend the following tips to assure safety as much as possible:
- Use vegetable dye
- Use semi-permanent dye instead of a permanent one
- Get it done from a trusted place
- Make sure they do a patch test first.
We hope that all these pointers would have helped you in making up your mind. If you opt for getting an eyelash tint, we wish you good luck! If not, don’t worry, we always have alternatives like using tint-like mascaras and getting some other services which can make us feel good!
