Natural Tinted Eyebrow Gel DIY

I was always embarrassed of my thick eyebrows growing up, and now for the last few years big, bold brows have been in. Unfortunately in my high school years I plucked much of the life out of my own eyebrows. They’re still pretty decent, but I wish they were fuller. I figured it couldn’t be that hard to make my own tinted eyebrow gel with items I already have. So here is how to make a natural tinted eyebrow gel at home.

Homemade Natural Tinted Eyebrow Gel DIY Recipe

Natural Tinted Eyebrow Gel

1 tsp aloe vera gel*
1 tsp cocoa powder (fair trade)
up to 1/2 capsule (approx 1/8 tsp) activated charcoal
1/8-1/4 tsp vitamin E oil

Begin with the aloe vera gel, and then stir in the cocoa powder with a toothpick or small makeup brush adding it little by little.
Add the activated charcoal very slowly while stirring to get the desired tint. I have dark eyebrows, so you may not need as much.
Pour in the vitamin E oil, stirring it until you get the desired consistency.
Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

To use, apply to eyebrows with an eyeliner/brow brush.

*I squeezed aloe vera gel from my plant for this. The best method I found was to make many slices vertically along the leaf about 3 mm apart from each other. Beginning at one end, slide your fingers down the leaf with pressure like you would squeezing a tube of toothpaste. You don’t want the firmer “meat,” just the gel. If you don’t have a plant, you can buy aloe vera gel – just make sure it’s dye- and alcohol-free.

This natural tinted eyebrow gel works triple duty. The cocoa powder and activated charcoal creates the colour to act as a filler. The aloe vera gel keeps your brow hairs in place throughout the day without looking stiff or flaky. Plus, aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil are great for promoting hair growth which means that over time your and my brows will grow back in fuller. Win-win-win!

What style of eyebrows do you like? Do you fill yours in?

    Very clever, one thing I’m worried about is the expiry! is there any way we can keep it for longer and get the benefit

      Any homemade beauty product will have a shorter life than store-bought ones. The vitamin E oil in this recipe does act as a natural preservative. Other ones I’ve read about are rosemary oil extract and grapefruit seed extract, though I have never tried them myself. It is also important to keep it in the fridge, keep it in the dark, wash your hands and utensils before using it, and keep out any water. I hope that helps!
