Getting my eyebrows and eyelashes tinted

Hi Beauties,

Jess here with a life post about getting my eyebrows and eyelashes tinted for the first time. Now a bit of a back story I usually get my eyebrows threaded once they've grown significantly as I like there to be some well thickness there.. However, during my last threading she unfortunately threaded way too much and I've been spending a good few months growing them back ever since. But finally it was time to get the tamed.

Eyebrows with eyebrow tint on and eyelashes tinted

I didn't have much time to be fully pampered so I went to a small but lovely beauty salon called Beautify in Newcastle-under-lyme. The woman was lovely and talked me through the process asking how much I wanted waxed off (my eyebrows were also waxed) and how dark I wanted the tint. I wanted to have my eyebrows looking as natural as possible as it was my first time getting them tinted, as well as my hair being grey-silver. She explained she would first apply the tint, using the dark brown shade but only keeping it on for 5 minutes so they would still be light. After this she would begin tinting my eyelashes as that takes longer (about 10-15 minutes) and then finish off by waxing and plucking my brows.

As you can see from the above pic, when the tint is applied you don't look your best...She cleaned all the area taking my makeup off around my eyes and brows and then applied the tint carefully even to the sparse middle hairs of my brows. The tint looks scary and extremely dark when placed on your brows but I can guarantee it does not turn that colour!

While the tint was well tinting she started on my eyelashes placing these sticky pads under my eyes to stop any tint going onto my face. This part was lovely as they had some sort of refreshing oil on so felt very relaxing. Once my eyes were all prepped she mixed the tint (apparently it was called blue black but it was just black) and carefully coated all my lashes. While this is happening you have to keep your eyes closed which for some reason, I was struggling to do. To relax me and stop me being tempted to peak she put some cotton pads soaked with more refreshing cream over the top.

By the time this was complete the tint on my brows was ready to come off. She simply swiped the tint away with some makeup remover and then said that once I could see again I could decide if I wanted them darker or not. The tint should last 4-6 weeks and its advised to avoid getting them wet as it is a tint which can fade.

While my lashes were still tinting she prepared the hot wax and then removed the tint from my eyelashes once they were ready. The she waxed a little to shape them and voila!

I never really saw the hipe of getting my eyebrows tinted but it literally is one of the best beauty things I've done! Usually I'd spend ages every morning draw them on but now I can roll out of bed and they're ready! Plus it means Joe doesn't have to see my non-existent eyebrows at night anymore- bonus.
If anyone's reading this post considering about getting them tinted then I highly recommend you do it.They last ages, save time and always look amazing.
