  • The Perfect Occasions To Tint Your Lashes And Brows

    Tinting your lashes and brows has many benefits, including making them look fuller and darker with a instant lift! We love using the 30 Day Mascara Eyelash Tint and 30 Day Brow Tint for an easy at-home solution to salon treatments, plus each kit includes multiple applications for less than £1 each.

    See if you match any of the tint must-have situations below and get yourself down to Boots to buy your 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint.

    So when will I need to tint my lashes and brows?

    1. For your wedding and honeymoon
    This is the perfect example of giving yourself an at-home pamper before your big day. The 30 Day Mascara provides a great priming base for your mascara, making lashes look fuller and darker from root to tip. Did we mention the 30 Day Brow Tint is completely waterproof too? No need to worry about your eyebrows looking good on your honeymoon as the 30 Day Brow Tint has already done that for you.

    2. For your holiday
    Forget wearing makeup every day on the beach and enjoy your holiday! The 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint are water and sweat proof and won’t transfer throughout the day. The tint will gradually fade over 30 days as your hairs naturally fall out and are replaced by new ones.

    3. For a special event
    Make your lashes and brows stand out and prime them for your makeup beforehand. Both kits are the perfect base for your mascara and brow makeup, enhancing the natural looks you already have and giving them a shape and colour boost!

    4. For no makeup days
    Skip the mascara and brow makeup on those days when you really don’t want to wear makeup, knowing that your lashes and brows already look fab!

    5. For when you need the volume and shape
    The Colorsport 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint boost your natural lashes and brows and last for up to 30 days, with no smudging. Reach lashes from root to tip, adding volume and colour instantly and create those #BrowsOnFleek!

    Try the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara and 30 Day Brow Tint in Dark Brown and Black for £8.25 each from Boots.

  • How To Make Lashes Look Longer And Brows Look Thicker

    Whilst our dreams and wishes may be to own a pet unicorn and become Queen one day, we can help you achieve longer lashes and thicker brows with a few simple tips:

    For Longer Lashes:
    – Angle the wand of your mascara vertically and brush against your lashes to add length!
    – Curl your eyelashes before applying mascara and gently warm your curls with a hairdryer beforehand, this helps the curl to hold for longer
    – Use the 30 Day Mascara Eyelash Tint each month for a waterproof colour and longer lashes, as the colour reaches from root to tip
    – Coat your lashes between mascara applications with baby powder on an eyeshadow brush. By doing this your lashes will have added volume and shape!
    – Wipe off excess mascara clumps on a tissue before applying because clumps will make your lashes look short and stumpy

    For Thicker Brows:
    – Use a wet and clean toothbrush to exfoliate eyebrows and stimulate growth
    – Begin with a brow pencil to outline the shape then finish with a powder to add a natural look
    – Try using a concealer around the outer edges of your brows to enhance their shape
    – Tint your brows each month with the 30 Day Brow Tint. This helps to add colour to fair hairs and shape to sparse brows!
    – Avoid plucking too much hair from above your brow, this makes them look thinner and unshapely

  • Tips For Using Our Lash And Brow Tint Kits

    12thSeptember_COL

    Tinting your own eyelashes and eyebrows at home can seem daunting at first, but our 30 Day kits are so easy to use with instant results – plus saving you a trip to the salon every month! Try our tips and tricks for using our lash and brow tint kits:

    – Use a timer
    It’s very important to keep track of your timings when using a tint kit on your lashes and brows, this determines whether the kit is successful or not. Use the timer on your phone or a kitchen timer to keep an eye on your minutes.

    – Follow the instructions and watch the tutorials

    In just a few simple steps your lashes and brows will be transformed and instantly shaped and defined, but always after you’ve read the instructions! Too much of one solution could mean the tint is ineffective and the wrong application could end up with the tint not applying at all! Check out our tutorial videos here.

    – Leave the tint on for a darker result

    Everybody takes to our tint kits differently, some people find a few minutes is perfect whilst others need extra time for a darker result. When using our 30 Day brow Tint, leave the tint on your eyebrows for a maximum of 5 minutes and with our 30 Day Mascara, leave Solution 1 on for an extra few minutes for a darker result!

    – Always apply a patch test
    With any tinting kit, it’s so very important to carry out a skin sensitivity patch test before starting the process. We posted about the importance of a patch test on our blog and how to carry out the test yourself to rule out any allergic reactions.

  • How To Find Your Eyebrow Arch

    How To Find Your Arch

    The saying “eyebrows are sisters, not twins” runs true when it comes to finding your eyebrow arch. Not every one eyebrow is the same and neither is your eyebrow arch! By finding where your eyebrow begins, ends and arches, you can create a defined eyebrow that adds shape and creates the right symmetry with your face overall.

    How To Find Your Eyebrow Arch:

    – Find where your eyebrow starts by holding an eyebrow pencil parallel to the side of your nose and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as the start.

    – Find where your eyebrow ends by angling an eyebrow pencil from your nostril towards the point of where your eye ends and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as the end.

    – Find where your eyebrow arch is by holding an eyebrow pencil vertically and line it up with the far side of your iris and where the pencil meets your eyebrow, mark this as your arch. Arches should never end with a point but naturally curve.

    Have you found your eyebrow arch?

  • Eye Makeup Trends To Try This S/S17

    Eye Makeup Trends

    Each season there’s a new makeup trend to try, whether it’s highlighting and contouring or graphic eyeliner and ombre lips. On the catwalks this season we’ve seen some dramatic looks and also au naturel styles, and here’s our top eye makeup trends to try this S/S17:

    – Eye gloss. Forgo the matte style and give glossy lids a try! Apply your normal eyeshadow on your eyelids then use a clear gloss and apply on top for a wet lid look.

    – Metallic eyes. Add a wash of metallic shimmer with a flat brush to press onto your eyelids. Then use a lighter shade in the middle of your eyelid to help draw attention to the center of your eyes.

    – Au naturel. We personally love this trend, leave out the mascara and use our 30 Day Mascara to add a natural colour tint to your eyelashes. Or if you can’t go without mascara, we love using a dark brown!

    – Neon eyeliner. Add a colour pop to your eyes with a graphic eyeliner flick in a neon or bright colour. Just make sure you have a steady hand to draw your line!

  • Essential Eyebrow Tools and Brushes

    makeup-brush-1768790_1920

    Keeping your eyebrows in check used to be quick work with a tweezer once a month and possibly a brow pencil if you’re feeling fancy. Since 2010, the eyebrow category has expanded massively and now there’s a product and tool for everything you can imagine. To help you work through the bad and the good, our experts have summarised their essential tools and brushes for keeping your brows in check:

    1. Tweezer. The classic tweezer is still very much so in demand for general maintenance and keeping eyebrow arches in shape. There’s many different shapes and sizes, but our favourite is the slanted tweezer which can easily grab eyebrow hairs for precise plucking.

    2. Spoolie/Spiral Brush. New to the makeup brush gang, the spoolie brush is a spiral shape brush and is ideal for combing through eyebrows to arrange stray hairs or for distributing makeup.

    3. Small Blender Brush. If you like using a highlighter to accentuate your eyebrow arch, a small blender brush is ideal for blending the product and ensuring a seamless finish.

    4. Hand Held Mirror.
    We love the mirrors with a magnified side so you can really see all your eyebrow hairs! This is great for precise plucking and makeup application.

    5. Cotton Buds. We’ve all been there when we’ve applied just too much makeup or accidentally got our 30 Day Brow Tint on our skin. Just sweep away with a cotton bud and voila, you eyebrows didn’t know a thing!

    For a natural and long-lasting colour all month, try the 30 Day Brow Tint (in Dark Brown and Black) for at-home tinting and gorgeous brows! Shop now at Boots for £8.25.

  • Colorsport 30 Day Mascara Formula Change

    Colorsport 30 Day Mascara Blog Post

    From September 2013, the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara reformulated to a hydrogen peroxide free formula. This was due to European legislation, stating that lash tinting products containing hydrogen peroxide are “for professional use only” if they are intended to be applied on the eyelashes. The European legislation does not allow products to be sold at retail with hydrogen peroxide, which are intended to be applied on the eyelashes, even if the level of peroxide is very low.

    As a result, we had to reformulate the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara which is now quicker and hydrogen peroxide free. The new formula uses a new process and ingredient, so please read the instructions very carefully and watch our tutorial here, which both explain the new application method. You will find an instruction leaflet in every 30 Day Mascara pack which explains the new process so please follow carefully. You can purchase the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara from Boots stores in both Black and Dark Brown for £8.25.

    We appreciate all your comments and have taken into account the feedback of our customers in regards to the new formula change. We are pleased to re-introduce the previous formula, containing hydrogen peroxide, back into the market but it can only be used for eyebrows. The 30 Day Brow Tint is sold at Boots stores in both Black and Dark Brown for £8.25.

    If you wish to receive further information about our formula change, please fill out the contact us form on our homepage.
