Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting

Most Christmas mornings result in pajamas, bed head, and impromptu photo ops with the family and what feels like every single present you unwrap! This year, be sure to prepare yourself for these holiday moments with a fresh face, complete with eyelash and brow tinting.

How It Works: Brow Tinting

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 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. Similar to dying your head of hair, these dyes are semi-permanent and can last up to four-six weeks. Tinting gives fast, effective results in just minutes, and replaces the need to pencil in brows while applying makeup. It helps fair-haired brows appear fuller and more defined, while also adding definition to your face. Tinting also works great on dark colored brows, especially for helping to match light colored or highlighted hair. It’s an easy way to enhance your natural beauty.

For those of us with thin brows, we love to combine this service with the RevitaBrow strengthening eyebrow conditioner. Check out our review of this product.

How It Works: Eyelash Tinting

Similar to eyebrow tinting, lash tinting takes a little bit longer to absorb all of the color from the vegetable-based dye. In addition to applying Vaseline to the skin area around each eye, a protective cotton pad is placed beneath the lower lashes to cover the skin below from absorbing the dye. The dye is applied to the bottom lashes, and then to the top lashes. The aesthetician will apply a few coats to the lashes, and then the lashes are left to absorb the color. 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. Should any eye irritation arise from the dye, the eye area is rinsed with cool water or a saline solution.

Eyelash tinting allows you to get away with skipping mascara – this is extremely helpful when you’re on the go, traveling, and even during those sweaty gym sessions. Lash tinting is especially helpful for defining light-colored lashes, and making dark-colored lashes appear more full. To make the most of your dark lashes, we suggest using RevitaLash’s Eyelash Conditioner. Learn more about this amazing product here.

We love the au natural look it gives – and really love the fact that it replaces the need for makeup! And the brow tinting is ideal for those of us with blonde or light eyebrows. Be sure to schedule your appointment with Skin Resolutions in time to enjoy the beauty benefits before the holidays!
