Getting your eyelashes right takes time. Whether you use mascara or fake lashes, the time it takes to put them on might make you late for that important early-morning meeting. For longer-lasting, illustrious lashes that don’t take forever, schedule eyelash tinting at your next salon appointment.

If you’ve never heard of lash tinting, here’s everything you need to know about this time-saving, eye-catching beauty treatment.

What Is Eyelash Tinting?

When you get eyelash tinting, a technician applies a semi-permanent dye to your lashes. The most popular colors are dark — brown, black or a shade of bluish black. For people with fair skin, hair or eyes, it’s a way to make your lashes pop without putting on mascara every day.

The whole process takes about 30 minutes. A salon technician applies the dye to your upper and lower lashes after covering your lower eyelids. The dye sets in about 15 minutes. It might be a good time to get eyebrow tinting to complete your look!

What Is Lash Tint Made Of?

Like hair dyes, lash tint is made from a wide range of ingredients. They may be food dyes, natural colorings, vegetable-based ingredients or chemical dyes similar to the ones salons use for the hair on top of your head.

Is Eyelash Tint Safe? Does It Hurt?

While they’re not FDA-approved, eyelash tints aren’t typically any more damaging to your hair than other beauty treatments. However, eyelash tinting may cause some irritation, but if done by a trained esthetician, you may experience few side effects or none at all. Some people may experience dry eyelashes or irritation around the area, so speak to a professional about ways to care for the area after a tinting treatment.

The area around the eyes is sensitive, so be sure to check lash tint ingredients for anything you might be allergic to.

How Long Does Eyelash Tinting Last?

Eyelash tints last for about a month, but that’s a month without mascara or putting on fake lashes. Many times, this isn’t because the dye fades to a noticeable degree. It’s because people shed their eyelashes at a rate of one or two per day.

What Shouldn’t I Do After Getting a Lash Tint?

To get the best results from your eyelash tinting, follow your esthetician’s instructions and any instructions on the tint bottle. This varies from product to product, but in general, you shouldn’t:

  • Get the area wet for 24 hours
  • Use heat on the area for 24 hours
  • Put in contacts for the rest of the day
  • Use oil-based beauty products until the next day
