The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Good Brows

I know I said we’d talk eyebrows a looong time ago but, I was letting them fade so I could make a video for you. Then, life happened and I was meeting a hottie for drinks and I had bushy faded brows. So, I went and had my gal get them in shape so I didn’t look crazy on a date.   *I do not recommend getting your brows done the day you have a date but Cici is a miracle worker. Check the video out here!

Long story short my brows are pretty great and I don’t even have to do much to them to accomplish this. That is because I recently fell in love with brow tinting. So, here are some answers to your questions about it. If you have any more questions feel free to leave them in the comments or get in touch!

What is brow tinting?

It’s sort of like hair color for your eyebrows. Except, in this case they use vegetable dye that is demi-permanent. That means it fades out over time. So, if you don’t like it you are certainly, not stuck with it.

I have dark eyebrows, why would I tint them?

I too have dark brows my friend but this service fills in the lighter hairs and the baby hairs and gives fullness. You will thank me and your esthetician, when you are spending way less time filling those bad boys in. If you even need to fill them in at all.

How long is this going to take?

Honestly, only a few minutes! I think it actually takes longer for my wax than the tint but then again I’m kinda hairy.

Can’t I just tint my own eyebrows?

I’m sure you could although I don’t encourage it. I’m pretty brave with DIY and at home beauty but even I don’t tint my own brows. They are after all, very close to your eyeballs. Who wants to mess with that?

Any products I should avoid?

Yes! Cici says to avoid oil for a day or two to help preserve the color and to avoid alcohol (topically) for a day after your tint and wax. If you get those little bumps after a wax, I recommend avoiding putting makeup or concealer on right after and let your raw skin breathe.

I hope this helps! Now go get that tint so you can say you really did wake up like that. 🙂 If you are in the Denver-Metro area go see Cici at the Benefit Brow Bar in Belmar, she’s AMAZING!
