Thankfully, you don't have to always go to a professional to enjoy fabulous brows. All you have to do is follow a handful of easy steps, and you'll be amazed at how wonderful they can look.
Here's how the process works!
#1 - Select a Dye Brand You Like
You can find plenty of brow-tinting kits on the market, which come with the actual dye pigment and developer to form your tint. Here is one I recently found and love to use.
I strongly suggest a patch test before painting it onto your brows.
You can do this inside of your wrist or behind your ear. In doing so, you can know whether your skin reacts negatively to the product.
#2 - Select the Right Shade
You may want to err on the lighter side when choosing a shade. If your goal is to dye your eyebrows dark brown, you should go with medium brown. You can always allow for a lighter tint to sit longer and grow in intensity, but if you go too dark, it's hard to reverse.
#3 - Prep Your Brows
Etch an oily border around the brow, so it doesn't stain the skin. Most dyes aren't oil-soluble, so mapping out those areas you want to keep clear is a sound idea. I use Vaseline or Aquaphor and outline my brows with an eyeshadow brush to get precise lines.
It may take a bit of practice to perfectly outline your brows, but you'll get it after a bit.
#4 - Paint Dye On, Wait for 3 Minutes, Then Wipe Off
Paint your dye onto your stenciled brow. It's best practice to start slow and apply the dye on in multiple rounds. Once the dye has been on for three to five minutes, carefully wipe it off. Remember to not let the color sit too long or your brows will be darker than expected.
#5 - Assess and Edit
Take a look at your work and see whether you need to darken further. If you do, repeat step number four.
It's very likely you will have sections of brow that take longer than others. You can then isolate these areas and keep reapplying the dye until you're happy with the results.
