Benefits of Brow & Lash Tinting
What is eyelash and eyebrow tinting?
Tinting is a process of applying a safe, semi-permanent dye to your eyelashes and eyebrows. The shade you and your esthetician choose for eyebrows and eyelashes is typically based on your current hair colour, and if you’re looking to achieve a natural or a more dramatic appearance. If you have light coloured hair, your lashes and brows will look best a couple of shades darker than your hair.
Tinting usually lasts for three to four weeks. It lasts longest when you keep your eyebrows well moisturized, and don’t use oil-based cleansers. Because dye is applied so close to the eyes, this is not a beauty treatment you should do at home.
When to avoid eyelash and eyebrow tinting
If you’ve got any sort of eye infection, hold off on making an appointment for tinting. Before tinting your eyelashes and eyebrows, your esthetician will do a quick patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the dye. If your skin reacts during this patch test, it’s best to avoid putting that same dye on your eyelashes and eyebrows.
The dye sets in only a few minutes but for eyelash tinting, you must keep your eyes closed during the entire process. If you can’t do that, eyelash tinting is not for you.
The benefits of eyelash and eyebrow tinting are:
Time savings – With your lashes and brows the perfect shade, you’ll cut down on the time you spend with your brow pencil, and you may even be able to skip the mascara.
Beautiful definition – Tinting your lashes and brows enhances your eyes, giving you a polished look for weeks.
Quick appointments – Getting your eyelashes and eyebrows tinted is fast, generally taking 30 minutes or less.
Built-in spa time – As mentioned earlier, dying your lashes and brows yourself isn’t recommended, so schedule a quick spa getaway so you can relax during your treatment.
