Eyebrow and Eyelash Tints
Eyebrow and Eyelash Tints are the perfect way to look made up with minimum effort. Your eyebrows and eyelashes will look defined without a slick of makeup.
Getting your eyelashes and eyebrows tinted means you’ll say goodbye to panda eyes and black marks on the pillow, and no longer be confronted by mascara smudges or a bare face when you look in the mirror. Tinting can also save you time and money. Apparently, women buy an average of five mascaras a year with these costing anywhere from £5 to £25 each. Mascara also has a limited shelf life as it dries out, causing clumping, and lashes to fall out with it being regularly exposed to air. Tinting also reduces the risk of an infection by using a disposable brush wand and a new wand for each brow and eye.
Those of us with different hair colours from blondes to red heads and those with a fair complexion can benefit from the added definition and even dark hair gets lightened by the sun, with the ends and lower lashes often barely noticeable. Tinting is great if you lead an active lifestyle, whether that’s playing sport or just wanting to look good in any sort of weather.
Tinting takes around 15 to 20 minutes, and about half an hour to 45 minutes if you’re having your brows and lashes done together. The effect lasts for around 6 weeks – the time it takes for the hair to grow or fall out but do bear in mind that a strong look will require a more frequent maintenance. You can choose a colour which compliments or contrasts with your hair and eye colour and skin tone. Black, brown and blue are the most popular and come in a variety of shades. Black is classic, brown is the most natural and can always be enhanced for a special occasion with mascara.
You’ll need to have a free patch test , done at least 24 hours in advance, will be done on your inner / or back of the ear, to check that the dye doesn’t cause a rash or inflammation. If you wear contact lenses, take your contact lenses out to have the treatment and to keep these out for a few hours after.
Specialist hair dye is used which is semi-permanent and suitable for these sensitive areas. Cotton pads are placed on your eyelids and Vaseline applied to the area around your brows to prevent staining.
