Beautiful eyelashes are just as important to us as beautiful hair and good skin and play an important role in perfect make-up. Those who do without fake lashes and stick to their natural lashes trick with mascara.
If you already have super long eyelashes thanks to eyelash serum (or good genes), then you don't really need to mascara them anymore and it's enough to dye them. We clean up the most common myths about eyelash tinting.
Eyelash tinting: The 3 biggest mistakes
Expert Marina Sulzer enlightens us. She is head stylist at RefectoCil, the professional for eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and has been tinting browses and lashes for 10 years.
Myth 1: Hair colour can be used for eyelash tinting
Nope, please don't! For eyelash tinting, you should use a colour specially developed for this purpose. Colours for the hair are clearly stronger and nothing for the sensitive eye area.
Myth 2: Eyelash tinting lets the eyelashes fall out
No! Also frequent dyeing does not let the eyelashes fall out. There is no need to worry about the hydrogen peroxide contained in the paint. Because while it is used for hair dyeing in a strength of 10% for bleaching, eyelash dyes use the chemical only with an intensity of one percent. When purchasing eyelash dyes, however, you should make sure that the product has been tested and is subject to the regulations of the EU Cosmetics Directive.
Myth 3: Mascara should not be applied after eyelash tinting.
Bullshit! After tinting you can treat your eyelashes like before. So it is no problem to make them up. By the way, a special styling gel can also be used so that the colour lasts longer and the eyelashes are cared for.
By the way: The colour in the eyelashes lasts 6 to 8 weeks. Great not only for make-up-free days, but especially for holidays.
