Almost everyone is after beautiful long lashes. Unfortuntately some of us are not blessed in that department:((( I have never had really great eyelashes but I have learned to live with it. My lower lashes are especially sparse and also very fair. I am loathe to use any eyelash growth products. I'm just not convinced that they are safe to use and as my peepers are quite important to me I will avoid these products like the plague.
The only solution I have found to do anything for me is eyelash tinting. I had never had this done until I started studying Beauty Therapy but now I do it regularly. I don't like to pay to have this done so I do tint my own eyelashes. It's not easy but it does get better with practice. However I would not recommend this at home and would advise anyone thinking of tinting eyelashes to get it done professionally. It costs around £10 in a salon and will last up to 6 weeks.
Below I have a pic of my own eyelashes. One eye has been tinted and the other hasn't. I do think it's quite obvious which one has been tinted, so there are no prizes for guessing it right lol. I'm sorry about the qulaity of the pic but I need more megapixels!! My current camera only has 5.2. Ideally I would like 10 or 12 but I need to save up for a better camera. In the meantime I hope this gives you an idea of what eyelash tinting can do for your eyelashes. For me I love it because it gives me some noticable lower lashes, it makes any mascara I use much better and if I want to skip the mascara I don't feel as "naked" without it lol
For anyone who can't tell it is my right eye which has the tinted lashes. I have also just tinted my eyebrows (another great treatment if you are lacking in colour in the brows) but the pic was taken before I waxed them. Now they are neat!! I always feel so much better when I have my eyelashes tinted and my eyebrows tinted and waxed.
Do you tint your eyelashes? Have you any other tricks for eyelashes?
