How to Tint Your Brows at Home
As much as we all love the look of clean, thick brows, the process of filling in eyebrows everyday can get tedious. Sure you can get your eyebrows professionally tinted, but that also involves more of your time by setting up multiple appointments. One of the easiest ways you can cut down your brow time is by tinting your brows at home, and guess what…it’s really easy! Here’s a full guide on everything you need to know to tint your brows at home.
What you’ll need is the Just for Men Mustache & Beard kit. Be careful with choosing your brow color. Going too dark or something that doesn’t match your natural hair color may look a bit off if this is your first time. Once you get the hang of it and would want to switch up the colors, go for it.
Mix equal parts of the developer and color base. Keep in mind you only need a very small amount. Once your tint is ready, you can use vaseline or a thick concealer around your brows to create a border for your eyebrows.
Use a clean, thin angled brush to apply the hair dye to your brows. Work on one brow at a time, but since it develops fairly quickly, you’re going to want to move fast. Use a cotton squab to clean up the edges after the application if you didn’t use any vaseline.
Set a timer and leave the dye on for 5 minutes. I kept them on for 15 minutes because I wanted them darker and bold. After the time is up, grab a wet cotton pad and simply wipe it off. Boom. It’s that easy.
If you have thin, sparse brow hairs like mine, it will not make a drastic difference. You can see in the before and after pictures below that the dye filled in my brows as I’d normally do with a brow pencil.
How long does it last?
Eyebrow tinting should last about 2 weeks, depending on how you care for them.
Does it damage your eyebrows?
Tinting your brows is a semi-permanent option that gives you a longer-lasting look. Since you’re depositing a darker color that doesn’t require bleaching, it’s pretty safe to do on your own.
How much does it cost?
Just for Men Mustache & Beard kit can be found at your local drug store for $8-$11.
What if you have sensitive skin?
You may want to speak with a professional if this is your first time attempting to tint your brows. You may also want to test a small patch to check for any allergies or any irritation before moving forward with both of your eyebrows.
