Eyebrow Tinting Basics: Benefits, Best Practices & What to Expect
Eyebrow tinting may be just the service you need if you’re tired of painstakingly pencilling in your brow colour each day to cover stubborn greys and bring life to your look. Brow tinting might be all you need to enhance your beautiful eyebrows, but you have yet to book your first brow tint, here’s what you need to know:
What is eyebrow tinting?
Brow tinting is a service for shading and filling in your existing brows using a semi-permanent tint. Similar to colouring your hair, a pigmented solution is applied and allowed to sit on the brows and saturate them with colour. However, unlike a dye job, the tint is temporary and will fade with time.
What are the benefits of brow tinting?
For adding a pop of colour and more definition, tinting is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to achieve instant transformation. Darkening your natural brows with tint helps them appear fuller and more youthful. The addition of tint is a great way to finish off a brow wax and create a finished, polished look. Tinting your eyebrows will also save you the trouble of needing to fill in your brows daily with a makeup product, although you can still do so, if desired.
Eyebrow Tinting vs. Microblading, Ombre Brows or Combination Brows
As brow styling services go, this one is completely non-invasive and pain free. While cosmetic tattooing procedures, ombre and microblading are also wonderful, they are more permanent and require a bit more aftercare. Meanwhile, eyebrow tinting takes only a few minutes and is a great option for first timers or when you just want to try a new look.
Can you tint your own brows?
While there are some DIY options on the market these days, a professional brow tint is preferable to trying to eyebrow tint at home. Allowing an expert to apply the tint solution is much safer and more likely to achieve your desired look. Over-the-counter eyebrow tinting solutions can be dangerous to use near the eye area, not to mention difficult to colour match. Additionally, brow colouring can look very unnatural if not applied correctly, so we highly suggest letting a professional brow artist perform your tint for best results.
How long do the results last and how often should you tint your brows?
Although brow tinting is semi-permanent, the benefits last for weeks at a time. Following your brow tinting service, the pigment will be very intense and rich for a few days and then gradually fade to look more natural. After about 4-8 weeks, with face washing and the natural growth cycle of your brows, you will be ready for a touch up and need to book your next visit, if you wish to maintain your tint.
