We all know that feeling when your make up is complete and it still feels like something is missing, but you just can’t put your finger on it. There is one quick way for an easy refresh; when you color your hair try tinting your brows. Tinting your brows offers a great effect by blending colors as well as highlighting by enhancing your brow bone.
Brow tinting takes brow grooming a step further than your traditional brow powders and gels by giving a natural enhancement that allows the color to frame the face and tie in the looks. Thicker brows are all the rage right now and the hunt for the perfect brow powders and gels is on as summer slowly approaches. With this summer heat comes summer makeup tricks. Less is more for summer more color and simple tricks and less make up.
Lightening your brows enhances the thickness of your brows and the color palette of your face. If you are wanting to grow thicker brows try putting conditioner and tea tree oil on them at night and brush in.
Here are some safe and approved at home directions:
Eyebrow Tinting at Home
Getting eyebrows tinted in a beauty salon, may cost a few dollars (approximately USD 15 – 20). If you are planning to tint eyebrows for the first time, then get it done by a beautician. In case you are inclined more towards hair coloring and dyeing tips, you can consider tinting your eyebrows at home. Several brands of eyebrow tinting kits are available in the beauty stores. Select the color carefully; two shade lighter or darker than your natural color is ideal. Here is a step by step procedure on how to tint eyebrows properly:
Gather the Required Supplies
Eyebrow tint developer
Two small bowls
Before you indulge in direct application of the eyebrow tinting base, perform a patch test. If possible, do it two days before your eyebrow tinting procedure. That way, you can ensure whether the chemical formulation is safe for your skin or not. Make the paste as per instructions, apply a small amount on your hands and check the after reactions. Once you are confirmed that the beauty product is safe, only then proceed with tinting eyebrow.
Go through the user directions mentioned in the leaflet. As you open an eyebrow tinting kit, you will find two paste tubes of different shades, probably of brown and black color. Mix appropriate amounts of the paste, until you get the color of your choice. Add the tint developer as instructed and combine well with the paste. Using a cotton ball, rub the skin areas surrounding the brows with petroleum jelly.
The next step is applying the paste to the eyebrows. Using an eyebrow brush, gently coat the brows with the tinting paste, starting from the inside of the brows and working your way towards the outer side. Repeat the same step for the other eyebrow. Allow the color to set for the stipulated time period. Following this, remove the paste gently with a cotton pad. Your eyebrows will not only appear thick, but you will also have the color of your choice.
After you are done with eyebrow tinting, before and after look of your eyebrows can be compared. You can definitely make out significant enhancement in your brows. However, tinting eyebrows is not the end of the story. It is to be borne in mind that regular threading, shaping and trimming eyebrows should be followed, even after tinting your brows. With this cosmetic procedure, you do not have to worry about putting eye makeups everyday before you step outside.
