I Tint My Brows With Mustache Dye, and It’s Changed My Life

Curated via Twitter from Glamour’s twitter account….

You’ll need a timer, Vaseline, cotton swabs, mild shampoo, and the Just for Men Brush-in Color Gel for Mustache & Beard, which comes with dye, developer, a brush, gloves, and a mini tray.

As for finding your right color, Exhale aesthetician Angela Marinescu says to test the hue on a small section of a paper towel and let it sit for a few minutes. “Then hold the paper above your brows to see the result,” she says.

Use a cotton swab to apply a small amount of Vaseline around your brows (but not on your brows) as a sort of buffer to ensure the color won’t run or bleed.

After five minutes, rinse it all off using a washcloth and incorporating a tiny bit of gentle shampoo to ensure you get all the dye off. “Wash the dye off, don’t rub it off,” Vucetaj says. “You remove hairs that way. ” Blotting softly should do the trick. That’s it!

To condition brows in between dyeing sessions, Marinescu recommends applying castor oil to them at night. (Charlize Theron swears by it. ) And as for the rest of your brow routine?

Make sure your brows are dry before you start, then apply the dye quickly, using the brush to go over your brow hairs.

Now, maybe it’s the former financial writer in me, but after spending $25+ getting my eyebrows tinted at fancy salons only for the hue to fade within two weeks, I decided I needed a stronger value proposition to keep investing the time and money.

There’s no travel time to a salon involved, no wait while at the salon, and I can dye my brows at 1:00 A. M. on a Friday night while listening to podcasts and brushing my teeth, which I’ve been known to do.

As I said above, I’m a fan of how easy it is to use Just for Men's Mustache and Beard Gel, but Sania’s Brow Bar owner Sania Vucetaj also recommends root touch-up kits you can buy at the drugstore.

Wearing the gloves that come with the package (I've become a pro at this, so I tend to skip them), squeeze a line of the color base tube into the mixing tray.

Bless my friend for the recommendation, because I’ve now been doing it regularly, and I've found that doing my own eyebrow tinting every couple of weeks is so much easier, effective, and wallet-friendly.
