Not everyone knows what eyebrow tinting is so, to give you an insight on this beauty practice and some tips on how to do it at home.
According to Umbreen Sheikh, owner or the Wink Brow Bar in NYC, “Tinting instantly makes you look groomed and adds more structure. You don’t have to fill them in every day or use powder, so it’s also convenient,”. This is essentially what tinting is; whether if you do it yourself or to a salon, this practice should help you save time during the makeup process.
By tinting your eyebrows you darken your baby hair and give more shape and structure to the whole, without the need to use products such as pencils and eyebrow palettes which can be expensive as well as time-consuming.
If you prefer going to a salon to get your tinting done, then all you need to do is choose what shape you want your eyebrows, varying their thickness and length. On the other hand, if you decide to do it yourself, you need some more preparation. As for all DIY projects, in fact, tinting needs to be thought through.
You start off by deciding the nuance you are going for, which generally should match your natural hair colour, although some prefer to match their eyebrows to their dyed hair colour. The next step is to prep the area, making sure that your brows are clean and makeup free and, to avoid accidental stains around the are, you can apply a layer of vaseline around your brows.
Choose from the various eyebrow tinting kits on sale, such as the Godefroy Instant Eyebrow Tint Permanent Colour Kit in Light Brown (£7) and start mixing the bleach and proceed to apply it using linear motions, following your hair growth and make sure to cover the surface evenly.
Use a wet cotton pad to remove the colour scrubbing your skin back and forth until every bit is removed. Wash your face and let your brows fully dry; this is the last step to eyebrow tinting. As you have understood, the process is quick and cheaper than a salon treatment.
Enjoy the ending result and all the time you will save when applying makeup in the morning!
