DIY Eyebrow Tinted Gel

Who still remembers the 90’s which was the era for grommet belts, chokers, denim and lest anyone forget.. the prevalent “thin brows” that are pencil thin and unflattering.

I had my fair share of seriously over-plucking my eyebrows, though I wasn’t mature enough to jump on the bandwagon. However, patience is the key, I was able to re-grow my chola brows after a while.

But unfortunately, this trend still exists. Chances are, you’ve probably over-plucked at least for once whether it was your mistake or you were victimized by a careless aesthetician.

What is

What does Eyebrow Gel Do?

Tinted eyebrow gel is perfect for ladies whose brows are thin, fine, or light or grey. While clear gel can be used by everyone and will add a youthful sheen, at the same time, it defines the hairs of the eyebrows so that they are neatly groomed.

Tinted eyebrow gel helps bulk up your brows with pigment, create a natural look, and keep your brows in place.

Why Make your own

Well, have you ever dyed your hair? If you dye your hair a color that is significantly different from your current hair color, then you have encountered a problem – your eyebrows are a different color from your hair.

Now, no one likes going through the pain of dying their eyebrows. However, some tinted eyebrow gel will fix you right up. You can make sure that your eyebrows match your hair color without a problem.

There’s no need to shell out your hard earned money for an overpriced  formula. Creating your own tinted brow gel is your best bet to achieve the color that matches your hair.

You’ll Need these

  • Eyeshadow of your choice of color (like light brown or black)
  • Clear mascara
  • 2 pcs of paper (square or rectangle)
  • scraper (or toothpick, back of the spoon)
  • tape


  • Slightly shimmery shades work too.
  • Avoid frosty eyeshadows – they just look unnatural.
  • Loose eyeshadows are easier to work with.
  • Unless you have red hair, stay away from eyeshadows with red undertones – they don’t look natural on most people.

Step by Step Tutorials on How
It :

① Line a paper on a flat surface. Grab your eyeshadow and by using a scraper or a toothpick or perhaps the back of a spoon, scrape the eyeshadow pigment.

Make sure you’re using a shade that’s about 2 shades lighter than your brow product shade. This will add just the right tint to the gel without making it too dark

② Once you have scraped a desirable amount of the eyeshadow pigment, you can fold the other paper to make a cone (makeshift funnel). Tape the end of the “cone” in preparation for the next step.

③ Grab the paper holding the pigment and carefully pour the powder into the clear mascara tube. If you like, you can add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to stimulate hair growth (optional).

I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.
