Should You Try Brow Tinting?

October 11, 2014

As you already know, I’m a huge fan of the Benefit Brow Bar and fully confident in their abilities to magically transform a pair of unruly eyebrows. Intrigued by their brow tinting services (something I’ve never tried before), I decided to give it a whirl. I wanted to see what brow tinting would do for me; I already fill in my eyebrows daily anyway, so this wasn’t a huge leap for me. Since I’m a fan of bold brows, I requested that my brows be as dark as the darkest hair on my head (always a good rule to follow!).


As you can see from the first photo, I was in desperate need of a wax and reshaping. The esthetician (the amazing Marianne!) first applied Vaseline around my brows to prevent the dye from staining my skin. She then applied the tint and let process and oxidize for 10 minutes.


She chose a medium brown shade for my brows, which turned out to be the perfect color!


After the dye had processed, she wiped it off and let me take a look at the tint for myself. I was so impressed that it managed to darken the baby hairs and peach fuzz so my eyebrows looked fuller and the hair appeared to be more dense.


I was so happy with my results! I will definitely be tinting my brows regularly from now on. :)


I also got a little touch-up by another fabulous makeup artist at the boutique. Since I’m always keeping up on the latest Benefit products, I was excited to try their Majorette cream blush. It’s a gorgeous coral shade that can be worn alone or underneath something else. So lovely!


Still a little red from the wax, but my eyebrow game is looking ON POINT thanks to the wonderful Benefit gals!


What do you think? Would you try out brow tinting? I give it 5 out of 5 stars and will definitely be back in 4 weeks for my next appointment! A huge thank you to all the lovely Benefit gals at the Sutter boutique in SF!
