For some women, their lashes are long, dark and thick, and their eyebrows are the perfect shade of color that helps define their eye makeup. If you’re over here with the rest of us, lashes and brows are lighter than you’d like. Mascara is a part of your everyday routine, and you need a little pencil here and there to make those brows pop. If you’d like to take a break from the mascara and pencil routine, eyebrow and eyelash tinting may be the perfect solution for you.
Your morning makeup routine can be a time consuming, frustrating practice. Creating the perfect eyebrow – twice – can take up much of your time, while mascara tends to cake and smear as you go through your day. Tinting can help free you from all this hassle.
Tinted lashes appear fuller and darker, mimicking the effect of mascara. If your natural lashes tend to be lighter on the ends, tinting can even make them appear longer. You no longer need to apply mascara every morning to get the look you want, although you can still wear some mascara if you want a very dramatic look for a special occasion.
Tinted brows eliminate the need for pencil touch ups. Every hair appears darker, so when it comes time to pluck and shape, you can clearly see everything you need to remove. Lush, well-shaped brows that don’t require penciling in can save you a ton of time every morning.
Tinting is a fast, convenient service that doesn’t take much time out of your day. The results are semi-permanent – you don’t need to worry about a touch-up until your natural brows and lashes regrow, which takes about four to six weeks.
The results are also waterproof, which makes tinting a great solution for swimmers and other athletes. Unlike mascara, tinted lashes won’t smear when they get wet from sports or sweating. It’s also great for those with sensitive eyes, since mascara can cause irritation.
