Eyelash Dye: Dye-ing to give it a Try?

OK, so maybe your eyelashes aren’t as dark as you’d like, and you’re wondering if there are any products you could use to give the luscious appearance of darker lashes without the drag of having to put on mascara every day. What’s a girl in need of eyelash enhancement to do?

Well, fortunately for you, there is actually eyelash dye! It’s true–just like you can dye your hair, you can dye your lashes too. Some fashion-forward ladies even color-coordinate their crowning glory with their eyelash fringe. Lash tinting is great for those of us girls who prefer a natural look, because dye darkens without the stiffness of a coat of mascara. It’s definitely the go-to product for anyone seeking “xtreme” lashes.

What Is Eyelash Dye?

Well, obviously, eyelash dye is a beauty product that is applied to your eyelashes to darken their natural color. If you are on a budget, you might be tempted to try the DIY kits at your local beauty supply place, but the safest bet is to go to a salon that specializes in this kind of beauty treatment. Yeah, yeah, I know you’re a careful girl, but are the possible chemical burns worth more than pretty lashes? Opt for the professional this time, sweetie.

Is Eyelash Dyeing Safe?

Well, yes and no. The FDA has not yet approved any dyes for use on eyebrows or eyelashes, but any beauty expert worth her salt recommends the use of aniline-free dyes. They don’t have the same harmful effects you find with dyes that contain aniline-derived tints, but since the FDA has not officially given eyelash tinting the green light, many consumers are worried it may post a health risk.

Guess what? Thousands of women just like you have this eyelash treatment done every year without anything bad happening. So be careful and have it done in a top-notch salon–don’t have your BFF give it a try, you know?

How Do I Apply Eyelash Dye?

If you follow my advice, you will have your tint job done in a lovely spa where you can relax and be pampered by a professional. The whole thing should take about 20-30 minutes, enough to take a nice little nap. The cost is about $15-$25 and you can expect the results to last about 4-6 weeks, when you will need a touch-up.
