Eyelash tint temporarily coats eyelashes with a thin bit of color. Unlike mascara, homemade tint doesn't goop up eyelashes and the color lasts for several washes. Making homemade eyelash tint isn't difficult and gives you the ability to experiment with different color tones.
Things You'll Need
- 1 tablespoon mica mineral powder
- 22-ounce glass dish
- 1/4 ounce distilled water
- Disposable stirring wand
- Disposable plastic pipette
- Empty mascara container
Place 1 tablespoon mica mineral powder in a 22-ounce glass dish.
Add 1/4 ounce distilled water to the dish. Mix it thoroughly with a disposable stirring wand to disperse the mica. This will cause the liquid to become dark.
Remove the liquid from the dish with a disposable plastic pipette and inject it into the empty mascara container.
Tips & Warnings
- Shake the mascara container thoroughly before each use. Use it just like mascara, letting your eyelashes air dry before putting on glasses or blinking.
- Mica mineral pigment is natural and colorful, coming in a wide array of hues. Choose any color you like, but keep in mind that mica is a long-lasting pigment that will take at least four or five washes to come out of your eyelashes.
- Empty mascara containers can be found in craft and hobby supply stores.
