Why is Eyebrow Tint So Important?
As you are checking out your new style in the mirror, check to see if your eyebrows match your hair and skin tone. Before you leave the salon, have the stylist will tint both your brows and lashes to accentuate your face, remember that your eyebrows will need to match your skin tone, eye color, and your hair color. The darker the hair and skin, the darker your eyebrows need to be. Conversely, the lighter your hair and skin are, the lighter your eyebrows need to be.
Most women use black mascara to make their eyes stand out more, so remember to have them tinted black while you are there as well. You will walk out of that salon with a whole new look, not to mention a great amount of self-confidence. Just so you will know what to expect, we will be going to discuss the correct procedure on how eyebrow and eyelash tinting is completed. So, while you’re at the salon you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the new experience of tinting.
What is the process like?
The stylist will lay you back at an approximately 45-degree angle, so the tinting solution will not enter your eyes. They will begin by washing the lashes and brows with warm and soapy water to remove all traces of makeup, the stylist will then apply petroleum jelly below the lower lashes and cover it with paper shields to protect your skin from the tinting stains. They will apply what is called the No. 1 solution to lashes with a cotton-tipped applicator, first applying to the top and bottom lashes going close to your skin, moistening the lashes several times.
Next, she will apply the No. 2 solution to the lashes in the same manner as before, when the solution is dry she will remove the eye shields and wash your lashes with cool water, using cotton pledgets.
If by chance any solution got on your skin she will need to remove it using a stain remover and once finished, she will soothe your skin with a lotion or cream.
The stylist will do the same tinting routine to do your eyebrows, make sure they take the time to do the lashes first and then the brows. Doing it one at a time will be a much more appropriate application that requires patience.
