Eyelash tinting This 30-minute procedure (HK$300) gives lashes a lush, permanent texture. First, Vaseline is applied around the eye area, to protect the skin. The tint is applied and left on for about 10 minutes, then removed with a damp cloth. Eye makeup can be applied afterwards. Eyebrow tinting Black or brown are best, depending on your natural colouring. This 15-minute treatment is applied in much the same way, and costs about HK$200. Eyebrow shaping Neatly shaped eyebrows help bring out the best in our eyes. Techniques include threading, waxing and plucking. Threading, for which the therapist uses cotton to remove stray hairs and reshape the brow, is regarded as being the least painful method. Hair can grow back in four to six weeks. About HK$200.
