DIY Eyebrow Tinting


Eyebrows. The two things we fuss over more than we’ll ever care to admit. Now I’m not one to use the term “on fleek” because I’m simply not the kind of person who could pull it off but I know the value of having one’s eyebrows on fleek.

Now each person’s eyebrow preference will differ but I think most will agree that natural looking eyebrows that are thick and luscious are what most of us strive for. I will say that having left mine alone for quite some time, they have thickened slightly but they are certainly not dark or thick enough to leave untouched. In fact, they look a bit worse for wear in the images that are soon to follow and for that I do apologise.

I recently stumbled upon a DIY eyebrow tinting recipe and convinced Kaylah to give it a try with me. I’m not saying the results were spectacular but I will say that we had fun giving it a go. This is what we did…


1 tablespoon of ground coffee

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

2 tablespoons of honey


Once we had combined our ingredients to form a paste, we groomed and cleaned our brows to prepare for the mixture.


Then, using a small eyeshadow or angled eyeliner brush, we applied to mixture to said brows.







Time for a couple of goofy pics to commemorate the experience and chill for 20 minutes.


And if you’ve got left over mixture that you’d like to store for your next pamper sesh…


Remove the mixture from brows.


















As I said we didn’t discover life-changing results and the truth is that you would probably need to do this a good number of times to see a real result but it was fun to have a little girly fun and treat our brows!

Have you ever tried this recipe, or perhaps something similar? Or what other quirky DIY tips could you divulge? Be sure to share all your thoughts in the comments!

  • It’s not exactly eau de natural, but it’s genuinely is easy to tint your brows at home with a dye mixture + peroxide (available with instructions at clicks, dischem etc) anything from soft brown to super crisp black. If you give them a pluck every now and then they’re perfect every day without touching them for about a month. Just use petroleum jelly + q tips to shape around the brow so you don’t stain your skin 🙂

    • Ooh I’ll definitely give that a try! 🙂 xx
