I Do My Own Eyebrow Tinting at Home—Here's How

Working out how to tint your eyebrows at home is tricky territory to travel. I have light blonde eyebrows but I also have little interest in filling in my light blonde eyebrows every day (and yet I do). It's less than ideal. But by tinting my eyebrows at home with a little dye, all of that changes. All of the little baby hairs that are otherwise invisible fill out, and suddenly my eyebrows have shape—suddenly I don't have to carefully pencil in my brows using "hair-like" strokes. But here's the thing: it takes all of two minutes in the salon and costs around £10. Which certainly isn't a lot considering the long range of salon services I could indulge in, but it feels unnecessary when I could just do my eyebrow tinting at home. Slap on some colour, wait a minute, wipe it off—seems like something I could do. And so I did. And I haven't paid for an in-salon eyebrow tinting since. Intrigued?

First, make sure your brows are clean and makeup-free. Then, brush through them with a spoolie as you normally would. You can apply a thin layer of Vaseline around your eyebrows to prevent accidental staining of the skin, but I've never had any problems, so I skip that step.
