Eyebrow tinting, a key step to get nice fluffy brows! Even the darkest brows benefit from a god dye, it helps fill in those transparent baby hairs which when visible really plump up the volume. Also, if you get a good dye and apply neatly the tint left behind on the skin acts as semi-permanent eyebrow makeup. The first day after tinting them you won’t even have to apply your regular pencil or powder to get a nice shape! Yay dye!
The dye I use is Refectocil in 3 Natural Brown, a brown that can vary from a taupe to an almost black shade depending on how long you leave it on for. Refectocil is the only brand I’ve tried that actually saturates the brow hair and leaves a nice solid colour that lasts more than two days. Depend and Coloran which are the easiest ones to find here in Sweden are crap in comparison, go for Refectocil, you will be so much happier with the result.
Important: remember to get the developer, it’s sold separately!
You mix the developer (10 drops for liquid format, 15-20 drops for cream format) to 2 centimeters of dye in a little plastic or glass container before applying it to your brows. I use a spoolie, you can also apply with an angled brush if you need more precision. Leave it on for 10 minutes or so before rinsing. I repeat this every two to three weeks.
Refectocil brow tint is available at Eleven.se for 79 SEK, the developer is 59 or 99 depending on if you choose cream or liquid format. Again, don’t forget buying it! It will last you through multiple tubes of dye though.
