"My top lash tinting tip: Instead of using paper eye pads, we use circle cotton wool pads by folding it in half and cutting a half moon shape to fit them under the eyes. These are a lot more softer on the delicate skin."

"When applying tint to the eyelashes keep the amount of tint to the minimum to help avoid seepage into the eyes.
With some clients it is best to keep conversation to a minimum avoiding muscle contractions that lift eye pads causing tint to seep into the eyes."

"My favourite trick is to use a plastic shield from Arrow Beauty.
You slip it under the bottom lashes, over your tint pad. You can then press the tint down so it covers all the bottom lashes and there is never any leftover "smudge".

"Use less peroxide. I am also a qualified Hairdresser, and my experience & knowledge as a hairdresser tells me that tint will last longer & look darker if you use less peroxide. And it does. That is because peroxide opens the hair follicle...so using too much means the tint will simply wash out soon after application because too much peroxide allows the follicles to remain slightly open after the tint. Most therapist use too much peroxide when they tint lashes."

"I think a lash tint is an opportunity to offer your client 20 minutes of quiet relaxation time out from her busy world. I always offer either a scalp or hand massage while the tint develops. Allowing her to just relax in a quiet space turns a functional treatment into something very luxurious & special...and she is less likely to get tint in her eyes if she's 100% relaxed."
