It takes approx. 4 minutes to read this article

Eyebrows are the frame not only for the eye, but for our entire face. If you have naturally thin and light hair, and your face seems to be devoid of expression, you can quickly and easily in the comfort of your home darken eyebrows yourself and enjoy a changed look


The most popular way to darken your eyebrows is to apply henna. It can be done in a beauty salon, however, nothing stands in the way of doing it yourself at home.

Henna is a natural dye obtained from the leaves of lavender shoots. It has been used in cosmetics for centuries by women living in the Middle and Far East and in Africa. Henna is usually used for hair care and body decoration. All over the world henna is used to darken eyebrows, eyelashes and emphasize hair color

In stores you can buy henna in powder or in cream. These products should be mixed with 3% hydrogen peroxide before application. In case of both forms, it is crucial to choose the right shade of the product

Henna should not be applied if you suffer from inflammatory and allergic skin conditions, skin lesions around eyebrows, barley, conjunctivitis. Henna also can not be applied on freshly depilated eyebrows and in lenses

  1. Make a thorough eye makeup removal.
  2. Prepare henna. In a small glass pour 1-2 baguettes of henna or squeeze 1 cm of paint in a tube and mix with hydrogen peroxide to the consistency of mush. If the consistency of henna cream is difficult to apply despite adding hydrogen peroxide, you can add talc to the slurry.
  3. The skin above and below your eyebrows should be smeared with Vaseline.
  4. Now move on to applying the henna. Start at the arch of your eyebrows, which is the highest point of your eyebrows, and give it the right length and shape. Then move on to the beginning of the eyebrow, remembering that this is its thickest point. Draw the shape in a continuous and smooth motion. When painting the second eyebrow, make sure that its shape is the same
  5. Leave the henna on the eyebrows from 1 to 10 minutes. The time depends on how your eyebrows accept the color. Then, wash off the product. Start from the eyebrow you painted first

Applying henna leaves the color on your eyebrows for up to about 3 weeks.

Black tea

Mix a tablespoon of natural cocoa with a tablespoon of coconut oil and a little honey. Apply the combined ingredients to your eyebrows and wash off after 10 minutes with a dampened cotton ball.


Sage is known in cosmetics for its nourishing properties – it improves blood circulation, nourishes the scalp and accelerates hair growth. With its help you can also darken eyebrows. Just brew a sachet of sage leaves and wait until the infusion takes on color and cools down. Soak cotton balls and cotton balls in the herbs and apply it on your eyebrows for 10 minutes.
