“They’re sisters, not twins,” is the daily rant that starts off our makeup routine. Eyebrows can be extremely tedious to deal with, yet they frame your face — talk about a double-edged sword. What can we do? They must be filled in, and yet every time we try to we’re left with completely uneven slugs across our forehead. Well, we don’t know about you guys, but we’re about ready to try anything that promises to cut down our trial and error time. The eyebrow gods have answered our prayers and given us eyebrow tinting! We’re here to tell you all about this new trend and why you need it in your life ASAP!
What is Eyebrow Tinting?
Eyebrow tinting is a pretty straightforward beauty treatment that is exactly what it sounds like: tinting your brows. It’s a semi-permanent dye which you can apply in your desired brow shape to tint your skin underneath as well as the brow hairs themselves.
How long does it last?
The results can last up to two weeks depending on how careful you are with your eyebrows and how little you touch them. The tint should have you covered so you no longer need to fill them in with a powder or pencil. But if you choose to still go over them everyday, it’s likely to fade faster.
Where can I get it done?
Eyebrow tinting is a salon treatment that can also be found at any Benefit brow bar. What’s so great about eyebrow tinting is that once you have it down, you can actually DIY it! Eyebrow tints are sold in pharmacies and you can use eyebrow stencils to get it perfect.
How Do I Choose a Color?
If you’re getting it professionally done, then your stylist will suggest the color that suits you best. However, if you’re trying to figure this out on your own, then take a close look at your hair color. If you’re blonde then you’ll want to opt for ashier tones, whereas perhaps if you’re a brunette you can pull off warmer tones. It’s all about matching to your hair!
Is It Safe?
Well, that’s why we’d recommend starting out by getting it done by a professional. A salon stylist will always carry out a patch test first to see how your skin reacts to the dye, this can help avoid any kind of allergic reaction.
How Long Will The Process Take?
Eyebrow tinting typically takes about 20-30 minutes. The tint itself needs to be allowed to sit for 20 minutes, so with the prep and removal it shouldn’t take more than 30.
Why should I do it?
Eyebrows really do frame your face. Whether you’re a huge makeup fan or just go for the minimal look everyday, messy eyebrows can put a damper on the whole thing. You want your eyebrows to be polished and clean.
Try as you might, there’s just such a thin line between sharpie brows and slugs! Eyebrow tinting can be professionally done to ensure you get the perfect shape, and you don’t have to worry about trying to get them even every morning!
