People are tinting their eyebrows with fake tan on TikTok

Is this ingenious or insanity?

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.
