Hooray! Finally some good news for the coffee and chocolate lovers amongst us. Apparently, they make just as good an eyebrow tint as they do a mid day pick me up.
Beauty blogger Jennifer Chiu first introduced us to this amazing beauty hack, which gives you perfect, dark brows without the chemicals and the potential dangers of having ammonia too close to your eyes. Intrigued? Here’s how to do it.
Grab two tablespoons of coffee grounds and use cocoa powder to adjust the shade. If you have super dark hair or prefer dramatic brows, use less cocoa powder and vice versa. Mix it all together until you have reached your perfect color.
The next step is to add something sticky into the mix to ensure the coffee cocoa powder doesn’t fall straight off your face. Chiu uses coconut oil, but you can probably substitute in any similar textured substance you have lying around the house. Honey or maple syrup would work just as effectively (and smell great).
Figure out your desired eyebrow shape, and then start filling them in! Be careful, because this tint is potent. You don’t want to tint the baby hairs around your brows, so keep it between the lines.
Let the mixture sit on your brows for 20 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. You will be left with gorgeous dark brows that are 100% chemical free. You can watch Chiu’s full tutorial in the link below!
