When your brows are properly shaped and strategically tinted, you can “wake up like this” a little later and forgo drawing in your eyebrow arches. Also, it will offer you some powerful face-framing effects, particularly if your brows are extremely fair.
Before you start, we consulted the experts for their best advice, whether you’re attempting it yourself at home or visiting a salon. To guarantee that you receive the best-ever brow before and after, here is all you need to know.
What does tinting the brows do?
When semi-permanent colour is applied to the brow region to enhance and define it, it is known as eyebrow tinting. The colour-matched tint darkens the fine, light hair surrounding the primary brow area to increase width and length, which might result in larger brows. Depending on your skin tone and hair colour, it is now feasible to darken, colour match, or even lighten your brows to improve your face.
How do you pick the appropriate shade of colour?
It’s crucial to get the colour right. If they are excessively light or dark, they will not effectively frame your features. The brow technician will direct you if you are travelling to an appointment.
On the other hand, as a general guideline, always go one shade darker than the hair. You can make your brows a bit darker if you prefer them to be bold. Instead, to be safe, choose a shade as close to your original hair colour as you can (a good guide is the colour of your baby hairs).
What distinguishes brow dye from brow tint?
Although a brow tint and dye are virtually the same, don’t mistake them for hair dye. If you’re trying it at home, be sure you’re using the right products because eyebrow colour is quite different from hair dye.
Hair dye is far too harsh for the delicate skin on the face; also take into account how close it is to your eyes. Whichever dye you choose, be careful to conduct a patch test 48 hours in advance.
How long does the tinting last on the brows?
Individuals who choose a more striking colour will typically notice it lingers longer, between 3 and 4 weeks. A more natural appearance will only last a few weeks, and you may need to redo them more frequently because it tends to fade sooner.
The wear of your tint may be shortened by chlorine, so try to avoid having your brows wet for at least 12 hours after your tint. Strong skincare ingredients like retinol and acids like AHAs and BHAs should be avoided in the brow area as they could irritate the skin and hasten the fading of the colour.
