A wonderfully natural, homemade DIY eyebrow gel that uses just 3 ingredients. Perfect for grooming and keeping eyebrows neat, as well as adding that desired tint to fill in any gaps – leaving eyebrows looking lush and voluminous!
A natural eyebrow gel and tint in one product? Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?
I, for one, am forever grooming my runaway eyebrows.
And truth be told, I hate plucking my eyebrows to keep them in shape – so I tend not to do so much!
This is why I’m in love with this DIY eyebrow gel recipe.
Made using natural ingredients and perfect for keeping any shape of eyebrows neat, you’ll never be without this tinted brow gel once you try it.
You’ll find the recipe directly here in this post. But first, you’ll need to buy the ingredients beforehand. It’s worth the investment, as a little goes a long way.
This gel lasts for around 2 months, and less is more – giving you natural, fluffy, defined-looking eyebrows which last throughout the day.
What is brow gel?
Created as an eyebrow shaper and tamer, an eyebrow gel is exactly what it’s called. It’s a gel that you put on your eyebrows.
The great thing about eyebrow gel is that it lasts throughout the day, so there’s no risk of misshapen brows or stray hairs.
And the recipe I’ve included here is really for a homemade eyebrow tint – meaning not only does it keep brows looking tidy, but it adds a touch of color and fullness, too – great for filling in any gaps in the brows.
how to fill eyebrows naturally
Now, you may wonder why using an eyebrow gel differs from using an eyebrow pencil.
Firstly, an eyebrow pencil only adds color – and more often than not, you’ll end up with fake-looking brows because too much is used or the color doesn’t quite match.
Whereby with an eyebrow gel, you get the ‘sticking factor,’ meaning brows are kept in place by the gel, and additionally, you get that lovely tint of color – meaning no nasty build-up or fake-looking eyebrows.
The great thing about this DIY eyebrow gel is it gives you natural-looking eyebrows.
And like all my homemade makeups, there are no harsh chemicals or nasties in the recipe, meaning it’ll nurture and nourish your eyebrows too!
In addition, essential oils are a great way to encourage eyebrow growth.
Benefits of eyebrow gel
The benefits of eyebrow gel mainly include shape fixing and enhanced eyebrow appearance.
But another huge benefit is the time saved in the mornings!
Believe me; if you’re used to grooming and penciling in your brows, you will love how quick this DIY eyebrow gel is to use.
Having eyebrows that look gloriously healthy and full is a desire for many women simply because our eyebrows help shape our faces.
If you’ve ever been to the salon to get your eyebrows shaped, you’ll know what I’m talking about!
Having an eyebrow shape that is fitting for your facial features enhances your appearance and can make you look younger too.
So with this, an eyebrow gel is a staple for every makeup bag – to help keep unruly eyebrows neat and well-formed throughout the day.

How to make brow gel
I recommend you get the ingredients beforehand to make this DIY eyebrow gel in one sitting.
The most important thing is to follow this recipe exactly, word for word.
Pay close attention to the quantities of ingredients used, as any variation will change the final product – possibly resulting in a gel that isn’t suitable for use.
This DIY eyebrow gel uses only 3 ingredients, by the way! Vegetable glycerin, emulsifying wax and mica powder (in your color of choice).
The big secret is you must (absolutely must!) stir these ingredients together until they are nearly cooled. So consider enlisting someone to help you, to give your arm a rest!
- 1/4 teaspoon of emulsifying wax flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin
- 1/8 teaspoon of mica powder
- Melt the emulsifying wax flakes in a small bowl in the microwave for 15-second intervals until melted.
- Add the vegetable glycerin and stir well with a toothpick
- Add the mica powder coloring of your choice and continue to stir until the gel is nearly cooled.
- Use a small funnel to transfer into an eyebrow tube container (one that has a brush inside)
why you’ll love this recipe
This is such a simple recipe to make, yet the results are excellent.
You’ll be excited by how the gel keeps your eyebrows in place all day but also adds that warm tint of color (which you matched perfectly with the mica powder coloring of choice).
It’s also cheaper to make this eyebrow gel than to buy some store-purchased eyebrow gels or pencils.
And the fact it’s full of natural ingredients that help moisturize and condition the eyebrow hair and skin underneath – makes this a real plus of this DIY eyebrow gel.
I feel you’ll never go back to buying eyebrow products ever again!
I am repeating myself a little here, but please follow the instructions! Make sure you use the exact quantities I’ve written in the recipe, so you get the desired finish for the gel.
Also, if you find the wax hardens too quickly, pop it in the microwave along with the vegetable glycerin for an extra 10 seconds to melt them together.
Don’t forget! The gel must be stirred constantly until it cools, which usually happens relatively quickly (within 10 minutes or so)
This is so the cooled ingredients do not separate from one another.
I also want to mention that the mica powder helps to create the gel texture and adds the tint of color to match your eyebrows.
If you didn’t want to make this a tinted brow gel, you could always omit the mica for something like aloe vera gel which is clear, yet still would hold the eyebrows in place (and add an extra boost of nourishment too!)
