What is Brow and Lash Tinting?
People with thick, full brows will never understand the struggle of people with little to no brows. You have to look for brow pencil, shades, or mascara to define your brows. In addition, you have to wake up early in the morning to fill them in precisely. In other words, it takes a lot of effort to get perfect brows.
In the past, people opt for cosmetic enhancement such as permanent makeup to darken their eyebrows and get their desired shape. The problem with permanent makeup is you don't have the flexibility to change your eyebrow shape. It's also difficult to remove.
This is when eyebrow and eyelash tinting because popular. These two methods gives a more natural look and it is semi-permanent. If you do not like the result, you don't have to dread about removing it.

How It Works: Brow & Lash Tinting

For the Eyebrows:
The dye semi-permanently darkens the brows, and gives fast, effective results in just minutes. There are a variety of dye-colors to best match your skin tone and hair color. This method usually last 4-6 weeks.
The procedure: During an eyebrow tinting service, an aesthetician first applies Vaseline to the skin surrounding the hair. This protects the skin and prevents the dye from bleeding onto it. Then the tint is painted directly onto the brows. The dye is left to penetrate the hair for up to 10 minutes, and any residue is gently removed with a cool, wet cloth.
For the Eyelashes:
Lash tinting is really help for light-colored brows. It also makes dark-colored lashes appear more full. Again, the result can last 4-6 weeks.
The procedure: The process is similar to eyebrow tinting, except it takes a bit longer to absorb all the color. In addition. The aesthetician will apply a few coats to the lashes and letting the color set. After about five to ten minutes, the cotton pad beneath the eye is removed, and the eyes are gently wiped clean with a cool, wet cotton pad.

Eyebrow tinting is really useful! I actually never got my eyebrows professionally done but I've been using a eyebrow tint that has a semi-permanent effect. It wears off after 2-3 days but it's much better than doing my brows everyday.

I wish I had less brows... They are just too thick and grow too fast that I have to pluck them so often!

I'll be honest, I use normal hair dye to achieve this. works better than eyebrow tint (you get better color) but you have to really know what you're doing or it can go really wrong

@stargaze same way brow tint does lol. clean a mascara wand and apply it. make sure it's a nontoxic dye, because the chemicals around your face may irritate your eyes + skin. leave it as long as desired and wipe off with a baby wipe or a damp wash cloth. I color my dark brown brows and lashes black all the time using this method
