How To: Make Your Own Tinted Brow Gel


I'm sure we all use brow gel on a daily basis to give some hold. I have a cheap clear gel from Technic and a more expensive one from Shavata but I came to the end of my tinted brow gel a few weeks back and while in a rush last week I didnt have time to fill in and shape my brows but I knew they needed more than just a clear gel so decided to make my own tinted version. Tinted brow gels can be quite pricey but you can pick up clear gels for around £2 or less so this is great for ayone on a budget.

What you'll need:
Clear brow gel/clear mascara
An old brown eyeshadow or any shade that suits
Tweezers or anything that can be used to scrape the shadow

Most of us have old eyeshadows hanging around so you more than likely wont need to buy one.

What to do:
Remove wand
Use your tweezers to loosen some eyeshadow
Carefully pour eyeshadow into the gel
Replace wand and give the gel a good mix

You can add as much or as little as you want. You'll know when the gel is dark enough for your brows.

I didnt take photos of the process as I was in a rush but its so simple to do and works just as well as more expensive versions. I know MUA do a clear mascara for £1 and if you already own an old eyeshadow then your new tinted brow gel is a bargain!

  3. Wow, this is such a clever idea but I don't think I could live without my eyebrow wax, gel just isn't strong enough for my wild brows!

    1. My brows arent too crazy but I still like using wax. Especially the tinted wax in the BrowZings kit. I'm able to use it alone and skip the powder.

    1. This Technic gel doesnt offer much hold but enough for me. I'm not sure how the MUA one compares but its still worth trying.

    1. Have you ever tried trimming your brows? I've started doing mine and they seem to keep their shape better during the day.

    2. I've never actually thought of trimming them, I think I might give it a go. Just hope I don't get too scissor happy and end up with no brows to tame haha.
