Tinted brow gels help your brow hair stay in place and enhance your natural color. Most tinted brow gels, though, are quite expensive or too pigmented and make your brows look so unnatural. If you’re on a budget, or don’t use tinted brow gels so often to justify buying one, why not try to make your own? It’s really easy. All you need is a clear mascara and some eyeshadow.
What you need
Get a clear mascara (any will do) and an eyeshadow that matches the color of your brows. For more natural results, it’s best to use matte eyeshadows. Slightly shimmery ones may work too but don’t use anything too frosty. In addition, unless you have red hair, stay clear of eyeshadows with red undertones or you risk having unnaturally-looking brows.
How to make your own tinted brow gel
Now that we have everything, we can start making our own tinted brow gel. Smash the eyeshadow into lots of tiny little pieces (or just use a loose one). Using the wand, add a little eyeshadow at a time into the clear mascara tube (if you only want to make enough for one application you can mix a bit of mascara and eyeshadow on the back of your hand instead) and mix well. Repeat until you get the desired shade and apply it to your brows.
