People are tinting their eyebrows with fake tan on TikTok

Is this ingenious or insanity?

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / May 24 2020

The beauty community of TikTok has birthed yet another weird beauty hack. This one is a shout out to all of those suffering with unsightly brows during quarantine – fake tan brow tint.

The name of the game is to apply fake tan to your brows to give yourself a light layer of colour, reminiscent of our open salon days (sigh). As demonstrated by Chanelle below, the idea is to apply the tan like you would a brow powder – using an angled brush and following the natural shape of the brow.

The real make or break moment with this hack is sussing out the development time, something that is dependent on the brand used and the desired outcome (obviously a longer development time equals darker brows) so, like with any tint, it’s always best to do a patch test beforehand.

After you’ve tinted them, TikTok’s got another hack for achieving flawless brows.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
