Whether you get waxed, tweezed, or threaded, the effect of perfect arches is better than getting a fresh haircut! These furry features give your face geometric balance and help your eyes pop. But having polished brows requires more than getting rid of stray hairs every two weeks. Traditionally, not matching your eyebrows to your hair color was something of a beauty faux pas. Nowadays, fashion shows around the world are stocked with flaxen-haired models parading down the runway with bold, brown, or colored arches. But taking a few minutes to darken your eyebrows adds time to your often already-rushed beauty routine. The answer? Semi-permanent tinting!
How the process works
I use a vegetable-based dye on both the eyelashes and the eyebrows for added definition. Think of it as a glaze for these hairs. During a brow tinting, I first apply Vaseline to the skin surrounding the hair. This protects the skin and prevents the dye from bleeding onto it. Then the tint is painted directly onto the brow. The dye “processes” for 10 minutes, and any residue is gently removed with a wet cloth. Keep in mind, the tint doesn't work like a tattoo. The dye only colors the existing hairs. Another important tip? If you use self-tanner, it's best to skip it the week before you come in for your service, as the tanner can react badly with the dye.”
Who should try it?
A brow tint works for everyone!. With defined, well-groomed brows, it gives you a thicker style and a more youthful appearance. Plus, the brow dye can be customized to any color you want.
Making it last
Both the eyebrow tinting treatment will last about four to six weeks. However, you can build upon your tints to keep the look from fading over time. Another way to keep up the color? Avoid oil-based moisturizers, cleansers, or wipes. They will dissolve your tints faster. As for makeup, brow pencil over your tint is absolutely fine!
