How To Make Eyebrow Tint Last For As Long As Humanly Possible

Share

We're all quickly approaching summer, and for those of us who are super into beauty, that means a switch to more long-lasting and water-proof beauty. Since brows are one of the most important parts of the face, a long-lasting look is a must — hence tinting, but you'll need to know how to make eyebrow tint last. While the process is definitely a simple one, it does require some maintenance. That doesn't mean you can't find ways to make your tint go the extra mile. With these simple tips, your brows will be on fleek all summer long.

While many may have heard about coloring your brows, tinting appears to be less well-known but it's a common brow process. When people chose to color their hair a lighter or darker hue, they may also choose to switch up their brows for a more seamless transition. Tinting, however, is great for basically everyone. For those with thinner, less shapely brows, tinting can help to create a more defined look leading to the illusion of a fuller brow.

The other great thing about tinting — other than the illusion of bolder brows? It's a relatively simple and pain-free process. While brow tinting requires some upkeep, it's a great way to get a flawless, stay-put look for summer.

So, without further ado, here's how to make eyebrow tint last.

1. See A Professional

Brow tinting is definitely not the same thing as taking box dye to your face. In fact, don't do that. The color used in tinting is actually vegetable dye, and while it may seem untrue, gentler dye lasts longer meaning that your tint will stay put longer if you visit the professionals.

2. Go Darker

Like your hair, roots for eyebrow tinting will be a larger problem if you choose to go lighter. If you're looking to create a fuller illusion, darker is better and will also require less maintenance.

3. Don't Wash Or Touch Your Brows After

While you'll obvious need to remove your makeup — if you're wearing any during tinting — do so with a makeup wipe and avoid those brows. For the first few hours after tinting, you'll want to let them be.

4. Be Careful Grooming

If you're headed to get your brows tinted, you likely would like them to look darker or more full. This means that you should be careful with grooming. To keep your tint looking better longer, don't keep plucking away that tinted work.
