how-to-dye-your-eyebrows-at-home-4One beauty practice that I commit to throughout the summer is dyeing my eyebrows each month. It only takes a few minutes and I love the way they look afterwards. Everyday I use either a pencil or eyeshadow to fill them in but dyeing them beforehand helps because then they don’t completely disappear whenever I go swimming. Below are the steps to dyeing your own at home. If you’ve been wanting to give your brows a little extra fleek then I recommend giving this a try!

Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Prep the skin by washing off any makeup. I also wait to moisturize the skin around the eyebrows as I don’t want this to affect the dye process.
  • Step 2 / Measure out 1 tsp of dye and 1 tsp of developer, mixing them together in the bowl using the spoon.
  • Step 3 / Use the travel size toothbrush or brow brush to carefully wipe the product along the hairs of the eyebrows.

Step 4 / When the brows are completely covered, use a cotton swab to wipe off any dye around the eyebrows. This is very important so you don’t dye the skin as well.

Step 5 / Set a timer for 7-10 minutes. Oftentimes I will set it for 5 minutes and then reapply more dye and wipe around the edges again. Then set the timer for another 5 minutes.

Note: During this step your eyebrows can become extremely itchy. I attribute this to the chemicals in the dye though I am not an professional expert. If this concerns you then I recommend wiping off the dye at that point though they will not be as dark as they would if left on for the full 10 minutes.

When the dye is setting on my eyebrows they always turn dark purple. They have never stayed that shade and once they dye is wiped away they are a more natural color. If you are concerned then you can do a small strand test to see how your eyebrows will be affected.

Step 6 / Wet a cotton round or toilet paper and gently remove the dye from the eyebrows. Ensure all of the dye is wiped away or else it can continue to deepen up the hair.

Step 7 / After dyeing my brows I love to fill them in so the tail end is as thick as the rest. Using a wax pencil I begin at the arch and create downward strokes following down the tail of the brow. Then I trace a light line along the top and fill in the sparse area right before the arch.

Step 8 / Next I brush through them with a spoolie brush to help distribute the product and reshape the brow.

Step 9 / Using a clear mascara or eyebrow gel I set everything in place.

Getting those last drops of foundation out of the bottle can sometimes be such a pain. I never want to simply toss it because they usually cost quite a bit and I want to get my moneys worth. There are a few things you can do to help clean out those containers a little bit better and hopefully a few more weeks of use! Here are four simple tricks that you can use for getting all of that foundation out of the bottle.

Tip #1: Storing a product upside down is one of the easiest ways to get the last drops out. Instead of banging the bottle against your hand simply store it top down and let the product run down towards the cap. This method usually works for a few days but thick products such as foundations can make things a little tricky and you’ll need something else to help.

Tip #2: Adding a few drops of water to your foundation, especially ones that come in pump form, can help loosen up the product stuck in the bottom. Remove the cap and let a little warm water drizzle into the bottom. Replace the cap back and give the bottle a few good shakes to help distribute the water around. Then store the container upside down for at least 24 hours or overnight before using agin. The next day use a q-tip or the pump straw to retrieve more product from the bottle.

Tip #3: If your foundation comes in a squeeze tube then start by pushing as much product towards the lid. Take a pair of scissors and cut the tube in half. Scoop out the remaining product and store it in an easily accessible container for using later.

Tip #4: As a last resort, place the container in a bowl of hot water and let it sit for a few minutes. The heat will help loosen up the product making it easier to remove from the bottle. Be mindful that the product could become too hot if placed in boiling water.
