Mascara vs. Lash Tinting

Two of the ways in beautifying your eyelashes are putting on mascara or getting your lashes tinted. Some prefer tinting, some prefer mascara. But how will you know which one is best suited for you?

We have listed the positives and negatives of these two for you.

• Can be removed with makeup remover
