Brow Tinting Basics: Benefits, Best Practices + What to Expect
Tired of painstakingly penciling in your brow colour each day to cover stubborn greys and bring life to your look? If so, brow tinting might be all you need to enhance your beautiful eyebrows. If you have yet to book your first brow tint, here’s what you need to know:
What is brow 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. It 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.
How does brow tinting differ from services like microblading, ombre brows or combination brows?
As brow styling services go, this one is completely non-invasive and pain free. While cosmetic tattooing procedures and microblading are also wonderful, they are more permanent and require a bit more aftercare. Meanwhile, 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 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 solutions can be dangerous to use near the eye area, not to mention difficult to color 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 tinting is semi-permanent, the benefits last for weeks at a time. Following your brow 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.
