Even if you’re stuck at home or strapped for cash, don’t give up on your dreams of getting the darker, fuller-looking eyebrows you’ve always wanted. Especially if you have absolutely zero desire to spend oodles of time and money on them. Hi, hello, and welcome to your new favorite product: at-home brow tints. Yes, dyeing your own brows feels intimidating and almost certainly a bad decision, but trust: Each one of these kits is not only ridiculously fool-proof, but gives surprisingly natural-looking results, so you’ll get brows like Gisele, not Groucho Marx.
If you’re bored of picking up a brow pencil or brow brush every single day and want to try an easier, cheaper, more long-lasting alternative, tinting will do your brows justice. The thing about semi-permanent brow tints is that they sound scarier than they really are. It’s all about finding a formula with good-for-you ingredients and easy instructions. It literally takes a few minutes, max, for results that will last for weeks to come. Add one of these to your cart, pop a squat in front of your mirror, and get to tinting for fuller, more voluminous brows. Don’t forget to selfie.
