eyelash dye?
Have you ever had your eyelashes dyed at a salon or been brave enough to do it yourself at home?

What were the results? Pros? Cons? What did dye did you use? Applicator?

I had it done professionally for years. It looked very nice at first, but it faded fast.

I think that if you have very long lashes, it looks great.

I've done it myself many times...with a deposit-only type of hair color (Robert Craig), not the fume-y kind with peroxide.

It works, but it does fade very fast. It's also dangerous, so you have to be very, very careful not to get it in your eyes.

My eyelashes are blond and translucent at the ends so I am going to try this: Godefroy 28 Day Mascara Black Permanent Eyelash Tint Kit Contains 25 Applications: Beauty

Please be extremely careful!!! Why not just use mascara?

Because I cannot figure out how to apply it to the BACK of my eyelashes so when I blink, my eyelashes are blond where there's no mascara. And I'm lazy. I would rather not wear makeup every day. I wear concealer to cover eczema scars on my face when I go to work because they are bright pink/red scars that look like burn scars. I never wear makeup on the weekend no matter where I am going. I think dark permanent lashes would be pretty and make my dark blue eyes pop.

I have the stuff to do it, but haven't felt like it since it arrived from Amazon. Darn summer cold! When I do it, I will post before and after pics and tell you how it went. I can only do one at a time so I may post a shot of one done and one not done ;-)

My eyebrows completely fell out so for a while I had them tattooed on, so I understand when something totally doesn't show up.

Recently I found something I can use instead of tattoo (but that's another thread LOL).

I had a friend who got her lashes dyed professionally and she was happy with the results. Would you consider that?

Anyway, good luck with it!

I thought about going to a salon to have it done but I am a control freak. I don't like the way salons cut my hair or color it; I like it better when I do it myself. Plus I will be doing only one eye at a time, so I can see what I am doing. I will abort the mission if anything seems off at all, especially stinging of eyes! I will settle for a bad or no dying at all if I have to rinse quickly. I don't feel comfortable doing that in a salon. Will they rinse me the second I say to, or will I have to throw a fit? I just don't trust them. They've messed up my hair too many times. My eyes will NOT grow back!

I understand. Salons have messed up my hair dye so many times I gave up and I do it myself. :salut:

I got everything ready, all the supplies, etc., but couldn't get the goofy under the eye pads to stay in place. My hand was shaky so I gave up. I was afraid I'd end up with dye everywhere except my lashes! So I caved today and made an appointment for Friday evening to have them done at a nice spa near my office. I'll post pics before and after.

Stupid shaky hand.

I had my very blonde lashes tinted for a while. I liked the look, but still needed mascara to thicken them. Then after a few months, I developed a sensitivity to the tint that was used and had red eyes for several days. Now I use latisse. It's a prescription eyelash lengthener. It doesn't really darken them much, but they're very long and look great with mascara. Good luck on Friday with your lash tint appt!

I had my eyelashes tinted this evening! It was actually a very relaxing process at a spa near my office. The lady had me lie on a massage table in a softly lit room with nice music and then she dyed the silly blond eyelashes BLACK. The tint only makes them darker, not fuller, thicker, or longer like mascara. But I really love the way they look! Now that the roots are black, I bet if i wear mascara, they will look awesome! How excited can I be about black eyelashes? I mean really? Oh yeah! A lot! :happy2:
