The point being, that this is a necessary staple in just about every woman’s beauty routine. What if I told you there is a trend that may take your mascara application to the next level! Eye lash tinting, while it may not replace your most beloved mascara, it will definitely be a great addition or alternative. This monthly treatment will take your dull, barely there lashes to lush, dark, glossy ones! The best part about it, is that you can skip the salon. This treatment is simple enough to do at home.
What You’ll Need:
• Henna powder
• Petroleum jelly
• Cotton pads or paper towels
• A clean mascara wand
Step 1: Mix
Use a small container to mix the henna and water together. Mix until you have a paste. Don’t leave the mixture watery, it must be thick.
Step 2: Prep Clean your face, giving careful attention to your lashes. Carefully dry your lashes, making sure there is no makeup or remover residue left behind. Apply petroleum jelly to the skin around your eye. This will protect it from any straying dye.
Step 3: Apply
Using the clean mascara wand, dip it into the henna paste making sure the bristles are evenly coated. Apply the tint as if it were mascara. A quick tip: start with the lower lashes in order to avoid smearing onto the upper lashes.
Step 4: Wait
Let your lashes “process” for 10 minutes.
Step 5: Remove
Using a wet cotton pad, gently wipe off your lashes.
