The Secret to Perfectly Shaped and Coloured Brows

Gosh, wouldn’t it be great if we were all born with gorgeously shaped, dark eyebrows? There’s no denying that dramatic, dark brows are the hot look right now and wiry thin eyebrows have been left behind in the past. Have you ever seen Cara Delevingne?

If you’re not one who’s naturally blessed with shapely, thick brows, not to worry! You can easily get the look. There are two options for you here. One involves a lot of spare time in the morning, a good eyebrow brush, and layer upon layer of eyebrow pencil.

The other option is called ‘eyebrow tinting’ and is changing the lives of women everywhere for the better. We’re not lying, either. An eyebrow tint gives such a dramatic change to your look that women walk out of salons feeling confident, sexy, and… well, like Cara Delevingne.

What is eyebrow tinting?

What’s this magic we speak of and how can it transform your face for the better? Well, it is just what it sounds like. A tint or dye applied to your eyebrows that adds a tonne of depth and shape to your natural brows. We all know how important eyebrows are for adding structure and shape to your face, and the darker they are, the better they flatter and frame your good looks.

Eyebrow tinting will bring colour to all those fine, thin, light coloured eyebrow hairs that normally go unseen. The result is fuller looking, thicker eyebrows that add more depth and shape to your face. You’ll walk away looking and feeling like Brooke Shields.

How long does eyebrow tinting last?

Eyebrow tinting typically last around 3-4 weeks, giving you the look of hot brows for almost a month. Compared to the morning routine of layering eyebrow pencil and meticulously brushing those brows, eyebrow tinting is a time-saver that’ll have you rolling out of bed looking ready to face the day.

How do I prepare for an eyebrow tint?

Feel free to have a nice, long brainstorm as to what size, colour, shape, etc. you want your brows to look. More importantly, you’ll want to check that you’re not allergic or have a sensitivity to the type of tint that will be used. Eyebrow tint is just another form of the dye, so if you’re afraid of possible reactions then drop into your lash technician and have a patch test done at least 24 hours before going for the full tint.

What happens during an eyebrow tint treatment?

Firstly, you’ll sit down with your therapist and think about what shape, length, and colour you’d like to go for. Typically there is a range of different colours available to match your natural hair and skin colour. Since your eyebrow tint will last 3-4 weeks, you want to be absolutely confident with the shape and colour you’re going for!

What colour eyebrow tint should I use?

It might be tempting to go for the deep, dark colours, but it’s best to use your hair colour as a guide. If you want something that looks a little natural, go for a colour that’s one or two shades darker than your natural hair colour. In terms of tone, blondes and younger ladies generally suit ashier tones, while brunettes and older ladies tend to look better with warm tones.

What’s the right eyebrow shape for me?

Your technician will be able to help you find the perfect size and shape for your eyebrow tint, but this is the general rule that people go for:

  • Long, straight eyebrows for oval or long faces,
  • Soft, arched brows for round faces,
  • Thicker, more arched eyebrows for square faces, and
  • Straighter brows with a very gentle arch for heart-shaped faces.

Allergic reaction to lash extensions

Properly applied lash extensions shouldn’t be painful or uncomfortable to wear. If they are, something is probably wrong. It’s possible to have or develop an allergy to eyelash extensions or, more commonly, an allergy to the glue used to attach the extensions. Genuine reactions tend to be rare but can develop out of nowhere, just…
