Eyebrows are like window frames for your eyes! They enhance the look of our eyes as well as provide a gorgeous lift to our eyes. Want to define them to stay in sync with the latest trends? Bored of splurging money on expensive eyebrow gels that do not provide good results? Then you definitely need to read on!
Today’s DIY is all about making an eyebrow mousse to help you get thicker, fuller, and well defined eyebrows. Pull out all your broken brown and black eyeshadows and let’s get to work!
Here is a list of products you would require to make an eyebrow mousse:
- A clean small container or jar to store the eyebrow mousse
- Cotton swab
- Brown eyeshadow
- Black eyeshadow
- Eye liner brush
How To Make An Eyebrow Mousse?
Let’s learn the steps to make the eyebrow mousse, all by yourself:
Start with clean hands. Sanitize them to avoid transferring any bacteria to our eyebrow mousse. Then, take some dark brown eyeshadow, which matches your natural eyebrow hair color. Though our natural eyebrow hair might appear black, it is not ideal to use only pure black eyeshadow for making the eyebrow mousse, as it will give a flattering and unnatural look.
The dark brown eyeshadow needs to have a matte finish as shimmery formulas will not help in defining your eyebrows. Don’t forget to check the expiry date of your eyeshadows before making the eyebrow mousse. I have used a matte dark brown eyeshadow from the Avon eye shadow palette in Mocca to make the eyebrow mousse.
Gently start scrapping your dark brown eye shadow using a clean cotton ear bud or a toothpick. Then transfer the loose eyeshadow powder into the storage container. Eyeshadows have a soft powder formula, so they will easily break with a cotton swab. If it doesn’t break, then you can use a blunt knife to break it. The storage container has to be well sanitized to avoid any bacterial accumulations. Just clean it with a mild detergent solution or spray some rubbing alcohol to clean the storage container. I used an old lip balm jar to store my eyebrow mousse.
If you are making the eyebrow mousse for the first time, it is best to take only small amounts of eyeshadow to check whether the end swatch matches with your natural eyebrow color to avoid any wastage. The amount of eyeshadow to be taken for making eyebrow mousse totally depends upon your requirement. Now, take some dark matte black eyeshadow and repeat the same process of scrapping it into the container.
Then, take a small amount of your face or eye primer and add it to the brown and black eyeshadow mixture. This step is completely optional, but it is best to use a primer as it will increase the longevity of your eyebrow mousse by preventing creasing or budging of the formula.
Now, add a small amount of Vaseline to the mixture for creating a mousse-like consistency. You can also use refreshing eye drops, instead of Vaseline to make the eyebrow mousse.
Then, take a clean eyeliner brush or cotton swab and start mixing the ingredients to form a mousse-like soft consistency. Mix it for 20 to 30 seconds to avoid any clumps in the formula.
And you are done with your own eyebrow mousse! Close your container tightly and store it.
This eyebrow mousse works well in filling in gaps in my eyebrow. It also gives a well-defined eyebrow look. The expiry of this eyebrow mousse will be same as the expiry of your eyeshadows.
So, now you have a new eyebrow mousse without spending a penny. If you are on a super tight budget, this DIY trick is something you should definitely give a try!
