When and how to dye your eyebrows?

Not yet ready to get started with permanent makeup? But, do you want to find a way to have a makeup effect in all circumstances? So why not try eyebrow coloring? 

This technique brought up to date with the “Bleached Eyebrow” phenomenon can be an interesting solution, but which must be carried out according to the rules of the art. 

Why have your eyebrows colored? 

The main objective of eyebrow coloring is to intensify your look by highlighting the natural line of your brow bone. The ideal, before coloring, is to opt for eyebrow waxing for a sublimated and more intense look. 

However, some women also want to dye their eyebrows to match the color of their hair with that of their eyebrows. However, be careful, opinions differ on this subject. As a general rule, it is not advisable to use the exact same shade as your hair. It is rather recommended to use a shade a little lighter, if you have brown hair, and on the contrary a little darker, if you have blonde hair. 

For an enhanced natural effect, choosing the right shade is essential, especially if you don't want to have overly defined eyebrows. 

On the other hand, the advantage of coloring your eyebrows is that you can benefit from a makeup effect in all circumstances, even at the beach or at the swimming pool. 

Finally, currently, particularly with the fashion for Bleached Eyebrows, ephemeral colorings (for the duration of an evening) are on the rise. You can therefore dare to use colors and extravagance to enhance and intensify your look for a festive event. 

Eyebrow coloring: are there any contraindications? 

Dying your eyebrows is generally not recommended for women with sparse eyebrows, since the coloring will not color the skin. As a result, hairless areas will be more visible. This is why permanent makeup is often offered to people who have sparse eyebrows, because this technique is more suitable for filling in empty areas with a result that remains quite natural. 

Also be careful if you have particularly sensitive skin. Before using a product, do a test on an area of ​​your body to see how your skin reacts to the product. If you experience itching, rinse thoroughly and try to find a gentler product. 

Tips for successful eyebrow coloring 

Eyebrow coloring is often quick and seems simple to do. However, nothing should be left to chance (choice of shade, exposure time, etc.).


Can you dye your eyebrows yourself? 

With a little experience, it is possible to dye your eyebrows yourself. However, it is strongly recommended, at least the first time, to go to an Institute, so that the work is carried out by a professional. 

Indeed, the choice of color is very important. This will determine the success of your coloring. On the other hand, another element to take into account is the fact that a color remains a product based on oxidizing dye. It is therefore important to know how to dose your coloring and to scrupulously respect the recommended exposure time. At the risk of damaging your skin and the hairs of your eyebrows. 

The steps of eyebrow coloring in a beauty salon 

The ideal for successful eyebrow coloring is to go to a beauty salon. In fact, a professional beautician will take care of you and you will be able to enjoy a relaxing break with complete peace of mind. 

Here are the different stages of eyebrow coloring in an institute: 

  1. Personalized interview: A more or less long time is offered to you with an expert so that you can choose the shade that corresponds to your desires and your hair color.  
  2. Allergy test: So that you don't have any unpleasant surprises, the beautician will test the product on your skin to ensure that you will not have any allergic reactions to the product.  
  3. Coloring: The beautician will first apply vaseline around your eyebrows so that the coloring does not stain your skin. She will then apply the coloring with a brush. In general, little material is used and the break time is quite short, from around ten seconds to 5 minutes maximum.  
  4. Finally, once the exposure time has elapsed. Rinse with plenty of water to remove the product.  

As for the price, eyebrow coloring costs only €15 in our institutes. 

This type of care is therefore easily accessible, which is why it is preferable to call on a professional. On the other hand, the coloring products used will also be of better quality and will last longer for a long-lasting sublime eye effect.
