To achieve a subtle, darker look to the eyebrows, apply either tinted eyebrow gel or semi-permanent eyebrow dye. Both methods come in various shades and require colour to be painted or applied to the eyebrow's root. When choosing a darker eyebrow colour, individuals should make sure it is within two to three shades of their normal hair colour.

Instructions

    Tinted Eyebrow Gel

  1. 1

    Paint tinted eyebrow gel on the eyebrow's roots. Try to get the colour as close to the roots as possible using two to three strokes and without touching the skin.

  2. 2

    Allow the tinted eyebrow gel to dry.

  3. 3

    Apply a second coat of eyebrow gel if desired.

    Semi-Permanent Eyebrow Dye

  1. 1

    Cleanse the face with soap and water to remove make-up, dirt and excess oils. Pat face dry with a towel.

  2. 2

    Apply petroleum jelly with a cotton swab around the outside of the eyebrows.

  3. 3

    Apply the dye to the eyebrows using the applicator and mixing dish included in the semi-permanent eyebrow dye kit. Coat each eyebrow hair as close to the root as possible without touching the skin. Allow the dye to dry for 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Remove excess dye with a cotton swab soaked in warm water. Apply witch hazel on the eyebrows and flush the eyes with a saline solution.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure to wear disposable gloves when applying the semi-permanent eyebrow dye to avoid staining the hands. Use eyebrow dyes that are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
