DIY Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting

Good morning !

I thought today I would show you how I tint my eyebrows and lashes. It’s something I have done myself for a number of years and find it really quick and easy and a lot more cost effective than having it done at a beauty salon.

I have very fair hair so without tinting I look awful.

Here is everything you need –image

I have tried a number of tints but find this to be the best. This is from Julienne. You will need the tint, which comes in a number of shades and a bottle of developer/activator. I buy these from eBay. The tint is £3.99 and developer is £2.49 they last ages. I usually tint once a month.

You will also need a mixing dish – this was also from eBay and costs £1.99 and an applicator. I use an angled brow brush for my eyebrows and the tint comes with a spooley which I use for my lashes.

This is what I look like before I tint.image

I have a dark brown and a black tint. Today I am going to use black.

Start by putting about a centemetre of tint in the mixing dish. Then add a small amount of the developer until you have a creamy consistency. You don’t want the mixture to be too thin. If this happens, just mix in a bit more tint.

Then, using the angled brush, start applying it. I always do my browns first. Follow your natural shape and ensure all hairs are well coated. Using a cotton bud, tidy up the shape. If you don’t do this you will end up with stained skin. Also make sure both brow shapes match.

Whilst this is developing I do my lashes. I use the spooley for this and just apply like you would apply mascara. Again, if you get any on the skin, wipe off straight away.

You will then have lovely brows and lashes 😀

This is my end result.

I would love to know your thoughts on this so please comment below.

Thanks for reading,
