What is Tinting?

Tinting eyebrows or eyelashes is the process of applying semi-permanent dye to enhance, shape and define your brows and lashes. It gives the appearance of thicker more youthful-looking brows/lashes.

Tinting is a popular and effective way of quickly enhancing the appearance of your eyebrows or lashes. It can be tailored for all skin types and hair colours.

How long does Tinting last?

Tinting is a  semi-permanent procedure last 6-12 weeks (the natural life cycle of the eyelash). This varies from person to person depending on the rate of growth of their lashes and brows. For optimal results repeat application is recommended every 4-6 weeks.

What can I expect during a tinting consult?
  • Tinting at Skin on Forty-Five is performed by our highly trained Beauty Therapists who are also trained in alternative modes of hair and skin care.
  • An average session takes only about 15 minutes.
  • To start with you will have a consult to discuss the goals of your treatment i.e. how full or sculpted you want your brows to look.
  • The area is then cleaned and prepared for application.
  • The dye is then mixed and carefully applied, first in the direction of how your brow hairs grow and then a second layer is applied in the opposite direction.
  • The dye remains applied for a fixed period to attain optimal and natural colour with any excess carefully removed.
Are there any downsides to Tinting?

Tinting is a very safe and popular procedure. It is common for the dye to colour the underlying skin. If this occurs don’t worry this washes away in a day or 2.
