Eyelash tinting is an excellent alternative to the latest false lashes or mascara, and it can give you the long, luscious lashes you've always wanted without fuss or hassle. Plus, it's relatively cheap and easy to do at home, so there's no excuse not to try it.
If you're new to eyelash tinting, don't worry - we've got you covered. Here's a beginner's guide to the best eyelash tint kits on the market and tips to help you get perfect lashes every time.
What is an Eyelash Tint?
An eyelash tint is a dye that is used to colour the eyelashes. It works similarly to hair dye in that it coats the lashes with pigment and can darken them or change their colour.
Most eyelash tints are temporary and will last for around 6-8 weeks before they start to fade. However, semi-permanent and permanent options are available if you want something that will last a little longer. If you want more information about what is eyelash tinting, you'll find everything you need to know here.
Why Use an Eyelash Tint?
There are many reasons to use an eyelash tint, but the main one is that it can save you time and hassle. If you struggle with applying false lashes or if mascara is too temporary, and you don't have the time to do it every day, then an eyelash tint can be a game-changer.
Tinting your eyelashes is also a superb way to enhance your natural beauty. If you have light-coloured lashes, a tint can make them appear darker and more dramatic. And if you have short or sparse lashes, a dye can give them the appearance of being longer and fuller without the need to apply eyelash extensions.
How to Choose the Right Eyelash Tint Kit
Eyelash tinting kits have everything you need to get started. As a beginner, using an eyelash dye kit should ensure that you follow the correct process for applying eyelash dye. The complete guide to Eylure Dylash is a good starting point.
There are a few things to consider when choosing an eyelash tint kit, including the following:
- Your desired look: Do you want natural-looking lashes or something more dramatic? Working out your desired look will help you to narrow down your options.
- The colour of your lashes: If you have light-coloured lashes, you may want to choose a dark tint to make them stand out more. Conversely, if you have dark lashes, you may want to go for a lighter tint.
- Your skin tone: If you have fair skin, go for a darker tint. If you have darker skin, opt for a lighter tint.
- The ingredients: Some people may be allergic to certain ingredients in lash tints, so it's essential to read the listed ingredients before you buy.

Is it worth using eyelash tint if your lashes are already black?
A frequently asked question we are always happy to answer. The answer is, Yes and No. If you have grey-coloured lashes that were once black and want to make them appear darker, then using a tint will definitely help. However, if your lashes are already black, you may not see much difference.
Can you use eyelash tint if you don't have many eyelashes?
Yes, you can use an eyelash tint even if you don't have a lot of lashes. In fact, it can help to give the appearance of more lashes, as it darkens them and makes them stand out more.
What can you do if tinting is not for you?
If you find that lash tinting is not for you, other options, such as false lashes, are available.
False eyelashes are a wonderful way to add volume and length to your lashes, and they come in many styles to suit your preference. If you're unsure how to apply them, plenty of tutorials are available online, or click on the link and read our blog.
Don't forget your eyebrow tint!
Now your eyes are sorted, let's not forget about your eyebrows. Eyebrows are not just there to catch falling debris (although that is literally why they are on your face). They frame your face and must not be neglected.
If you want to fill in your brows, various options are available, from powders and pencils to gels, pomades and brow dye. Choose the shade closest to your natural hair colour for the most subtle eyebrow tint look. We have a great blog on achieving perfect brows, which can help you.
Don't forget to buy an excellent pair of tweezers; you will need these for your eyebrows and to help apply false eyelashes should you choose to take that path.
And that's it, folks. We've armed you with all the knowledge you need on lash tinting and other ways to enhance your eyes. If you have any questions, contact us. We're always happy to help (maybe not always, like Monday morning first thing is a no-no, till after coffee).
