Let’s talk about eyebrow tinting, shall we?
This nifty little treatment can enhance and add some insane color to your brows, making them look on point WITHOUT all the hassle of daily makeup.
So maybe you took the plunge and got your brows tinted, only to find out the color turned out darker than a black hole. Or maybe your skin had a major meltdown and you had a gnarly reaction to the product. We feel your pain.
Lauryn loves a bold double tint, BUT, what’s a gal to do when faced with brow tinting gone wrong? We got your back.
Sure, the tint will naturally fade after 5 to 7 days, but who wants to spend a week feeling like they’ve got creepy crawly caterpillars glued to their forehead?
We have a few tricks up our sleeves when it comes to quickly fading out your brow tint. Let’s go.
How to Remove Eyebrow Tint
These bad boys are designed to break down and dissolve makeup, including brow tints. Silicone-based and oil-based makeup removers work by loosening the tint’s grip on your brow hairs, making it easier to remove.
We usually use clarifying shampoo to remove product buildup from our hair. Turns out, it can work wonders on brow tints, too.
The shampoo’s cleansing properties can help strip away some of the tints and lighten the brows over time. However, it’s SUPER important to be cautious because shampoos can be drying. Make sure to moisturize your brows afterward. Lauryn loves a castor oil for this.
♡ Baking Soda Paste
Ah, baking soda. On our faces… such fun!
This kitchen staple not only helps with baking delicious treats, but it also doubles as an exfoliator and can help fade the tint. When you mix it with water to create a paste and apply it to your brows, the baking soda gently buffs away the tint, leaving your natural brows behind.
Keep in mind that baking soda can be a bit abrasive, so don’t go overboard with the scrubbing, and moisturize afterward to prevent dryness or irritation. And duh, don’t get it in your eyes.
♡ Lemon Juice
Lemon juice, the holy grail of natural lightening.
This citrus superhero contains natural bleaching properties that can help lighten the tint. Gently swipe some fresh lemon juice over your brows, let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse it off. (Again, watch the eyes!)
