Tired of Applying Mascara and Eyebrow Pencil? These Treatments May Be for You!

Daily application of mascara and eyebrow pencil to enhance your eyes is a cumbersome beauty routine. Even if the products are waterproof, there is no guarantee that they will stay on during a long day. Moreover, when you do want to remove them, the only way to do so is by applying a chemical fluid to one of the most sensitive areas of your face. A semi-permanent solution is now available via professionally applied eyebrow and eyelash tint. Below you will find the facts you need to decide if these treatments are right for you.

What Is Eyebrow Tinting?

During tinting, a semi-permanent dye is applied to the eyebrow area. While the process does not cover any areas of sparse hair growth, in the hands of a skilled technician, it defines and enhances the natural arches of your brow. Moreover, a custom dye is blended to suit your hair and skin tone. The effect of the treatment is most pronounced on those who have light brown or blonde eyebrows. The procedure typically takes about 15 minutes and the results last from four to six weeks.

What Is Eyelash Tinting?

This process is similar to eyebrow tinting, but occasionally the dye applied to the eyelashes is permanent rather than semi-permanent. Tinting makes eyelashes noticeably darker. However, as with eyebrow tinting, the effect of the treatment is most noticeable on those who have light-colored lashes. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and the results usually last four weeks. When permanent dye is applied, the darkened lashes remain until they naturally fall out and are replaced by un-dyed new growth.

Both of these procedures work on all skin tones and hair colors. If you have very sensitive skin, you can ask the technician to do a patch test with the dye prior to the final application. After treatments, you should avoid getting your lashes or brows wet for the next 12 hours. Having a touch up every four to six weeks may mean that you can permanently say goodbye to both your mascara and eyebrow pencil.
