Matching the color of your eyebrows to the color of your hair is important. If you dye your hair, you should consider tinting your eyebrows so that both colors go together. This is a cosmetic procedure that is very easy for you to do from home.
Items you will need
- Eyebrow color
- Eyebrow tint developer
- Small cup
- Eyebrow brush
- Petroleum jelly
- Cotton pad
Find a kit. Different drug stores and salons carry eyebrow tinting kits. These kits come with color and with different items that you will need when tinting your eyebrows. Find a kit that is in your price range before you begin.
Mix the paste. In the kit will be a black and a brown paste that will be your color. Apply a dab of each to a small cup, if you are tinting your eyelashes darker. If you want light eyelashes, apply only the brown. Mix in three or four drops of the eyebrow tint developer that is also in the kit.
Apply petroleum jelly. In order to keep the dye from getting onto your skin, coat the skin around your eyebrow with Vaseline. If any of the color gets onto the petroleum jelly, it will be easy to clean off your skin.
Brush on the color. Using an eyebrow brush, you should brush the color onto your eyebrow. You should start at the inside part of your eyebrow and work your way out towards the end of your eyebrow. Make sure to coat the eyebrow thoroughly.
Repeat on the other eyebrow. After you have finished coating one eyebrow with the color, be sure to do the same thing to the other eyebrow. Coat the eyebrow with as much of the color as it takes to get every part of the hair.
Remove the color. After you have allowed the color to set into your eyebrows, use a cotton pad and rub off the excess color. Start from the inside of your eyebrow and rub the cotton pad outward.
