Bushy, voluminous eyebrows are the new thin snake-like eyebrows. That's right, thick and luscious brows have changed everyone's eyebrow game. From overdrawing to getting eyebrow tinting done, people are all about that defined, bold shape these days.

Let's take a look at what eyebrow tinting actually is.

What Is Eyebrow Tinting?

Eyebrow tinting is a simple way of transforming your brows. It's not just painless but cost-effective too. In this procedure, a semi-permanent dye is applied to your eyebrows (similar to getting your dyed). The dye is applied to your eyebrow's areas where you may have less hair or 'bald patches'. It takes about 30 minutes, and your stylist will make sure to match the dye they're applying to the color of your natural hair or the color you want.

There are many benefits to getting your eyebrows tinted. It saves you from the extra step in your makeup routine, and that's filling in your eyebrows. It also means fewer visits to the spa for getting your eyebrows threaded and shaped.

How Long Does It Last?

If you want to make sure the tint applied to your eyebrows lasts, do not let water near them for at least 12 hours. The eyebrow tint fades over time, but the expected duration is between four and six weeks. The color will slowly become lighter as weeks go by.

Patch Test

Always make sure to do a patch test before you apply any products to your face. You can be allergic to any ingredient present in the eyebrow tinting dye, so it's better to avoid any side effects.

Eyebrow Tinting vs. Microblading

Eyebrow tinting is simply applying a semi-permanent dye to your skin. Whereas in Microblading, you're tattooing eyebrows onto your face. Microblading is done in the sparse areas of your eyebrows, much like eyebrow tinting. But Microblading lasts longer, as it's a tattoo and not dye. It can last for 18–30 months.
