8 Benefits Of Eyebrow Tinting & Why You Should Get It Done If You’re Still On The Fence

Eyebrow tinting is a beauty treatment that involves applying a semi-permanent dye to the eyebrows to enhance their natural color and shape, thus resulting in better-defined features. Next to eyebrow microblading aka eyebrow embroidery, it is one of the most popular eyebrow services in Singapore. If you’re still on the fence, here are 8 benefits of eyebrow tinting that will convince you to take the plunge.


#1: Eyebrow tinting is painless and non-invasive

Unlike microblading, which, very much like a tattoo, is carried out using a small blade to create tiny cuts in the skin, eyebrow tinting is a non-invasive beauty treatment that only relies on dyes. As no needles are used throughout the process, eyebrow tinting is relatively low-risk and your chances of adverse side-effects like irritation and skin infections are greatly reduced.

#2: Eyebrow tints can be customised for any skin tone & preferred intensity

Eyebrow tints can be fully customised to suit your individual needs and preferences. Dyes can be mixed to best complement your skin tone and/or hair colour, and you should also be able to choose how bold and subtle your preferred results will be. Basically, eyebrow tinting is super versatile and can suit just about anyone.

#3: The results are semi long-lasting, but low-commitment 

Eyebrow tints typically last for 4-6 weeks, depending on your lifestyle and how fast your hair grows. The frequency of going for touch-ups would typically be similar to that of gel manicures and lash extensions, so all the better if you go to a salon that offers a variety of services as you can get everything settled at once.


Because of their semi-permanent nature - compared to eyebrow embroidery which lasts for 6 months up to 2 years - eyebrow tinting is comparatively low-commitment, which is great if you just want to try out a particular style to see if it suits you before a long-term fix. And if you don’t like how it looks on you, you can take comfort in the fact that it’ll fade without too long a wait.

#4: Vegan and halal eyebrow tint options exist so it’s suitable for everyone

Those with sensitive skin need no fear, as there are skin-friendly eyebrow tinting services that make use of vegetable-based dyes or organic henna. There are also beauty salons in Singapore that use wudhu-friendly, halal-certified eyebrow tints, so Muslim gals wanting to get their brows on fleek can do so with peace of mind.

#5: It takes as little as 15 minutes to complete

The duration of an eyebrow tinting session can vary depending on the specific technique and the individual performing the service, but generally, the process of eyebrow tinting can take as little as 15 to 40 minutes.

The eyebrow dye only needs to be left on one’s eyebrows for a couple of minutes before being wiped away, with the rest of the session will be spent on cleansing, shaping, colour-mixing and such. In any case, it’s certainly less time-consuming than eyebrow embroidery.

#6: Eyebrow tints are waterproof

Eyebrow tints are waterproof, which means you can swim, exercise, and sweat without having your eyebrow smudging off. Of course, such activity can still contribute to them fading over time - since brow tints are, after all, semi-permanent - but having tinted brows still allows you to llead an active lifestyle without worrying about how you look at the end of the day.

#7: Eyebrow tints can cover grey hairs

Those who are struggling with greying hair - premature or otherwise - can turn to eyebrow tinting to have that covered up. With your eyebrows made fuller, darker, and more defined, you’ll also tend to look more youthful.

#8: It saves time in your daily routine

Having tinted eyebrows means you literally get to roll out of bed and say “I woke up like this” - instead of having to spend time filling them in with a brow pencil or gel every day or worrying about general maintenance.

You also won’t have to do touch-ups throughout the day, and will have one less step to deal with when it comes to makeup removal. This makes eyebrow tinting a low-maintenance beauty treatment that is perfect for people with busy schedules.
