How to Maintain Polished Brows in Warm/Humid Weather
Bold brows are not a trend, they’re here to stay – every celebrity seems to have transformed their pencil thin arches into bolder straighter frames, and it’s benefited every single one of them! Keep in mind that a perfectly arched polished brow requires more than just getting rid of stray hairs every month, but not much more (wink). Here’s how to get your eyebrows ready for the warmer weather, whether you’re hitting spring break, the Rivera or your rooftop with a chair, beautifully groomed brows will make you look GORG…even if you feel like you’re wilting.
It starts with a tint, taking a few minutes to darken your eyebrows reduced time in your already-rushed beauty routine. And don’t worry about matching your color so perfectly to your head hair, nowadays anything goes – really! Think of it like bags and shoes, they used to have to match, but now it’s actually cooler if they don’t!
A tint is like a glaze, it’s semi permanent so it will gracefully wear away. First an esthetician applies Vaseline to the skin surrounding the hair to protect it and prevent the dye from bleeding onto it, and then the vegetable-based tint is applied to the brow hair and processes for about 10 minutes before it’s wiped away. Tints add definition by coloring the brow hair, as well as all the teeny tiny little hairs that are usually invisible, so the result is a much bolder brow. Note, if you are a self-tanner, it’s best to skip it the week before you come in for your service, as the tanner can react badly with the dye.
A good brow tint gives you a thicker style, a more youthful appearance and is the perfect solution to keeping brows looking great in warm humid claimants where makeup melts or water washes it away. It’s also great for on-the-go gals who don’t have time to apply much makeup or prefer a more natural look. The added bonus is you even look good at the gym and when you wake up in the morning!!
The loveliness lasts 4-6 four to six weeks; just avoid oil-based moisturizers, cleansers, or wipes, which can cause fadage. And if you’re a real good Cookie, you will apply a gently sunscreen to brows when in the sun to protect hair and skin and help prevent fadage.
So that’s it – get those brows in shape and you will be ready for ANYTHING!!
