How to Make Your Own DIY Eyebrow Gel

Eyebrows are one of the most important features of your face. They frame your eyes, express your emotions, and enhance your overall beauty. But not everyone is blessed with perfect brows. Some of us have sparse, thin, or unruly eyebrows that need some extra attention. That’s where eyebrow gel comes in handy.

Eyebrow gel is a product that helps you shape, tame, and fill in your brows. It can also add some color and definition to your brows, making them look fuller and more polished. Eyebrow gel is especially useful for those who have thick, coarse, or curly eyebrows that tend to go out of place.

But did you know that you can make your own eyebrow gel at home? It’s easy, cheap, and natural. You only need a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen or bathroom. Plus, you can customize the color and consistency of your eyebrow gel to suit your preferences and needs.

In this blog post, I will show you how to make your own DIY eyebrow gel with simple steps and tips. I will also answer some frequently asked questions about eyebrow gel and its benefits. Let’s get started!

What You Need to Make DIY Eyebrow Gel

To make your own eyebrow gel, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Aloe vera gel: This is the base of your eyebrow gel. Aloe vera gel is soothing, moisturizing, and healing for your skin and hair. It also helps to hold your brows in place and gives them a natural shine. You can use store-bought aloe vera gel or extract it from a fresh aloe vera leaf.
  • Emulsifying wax flakes: This is an ingredient that helps to bind the oil and water components of your eyebrow gel. Emulsifying wax flakes are derived from plant or animal sources and are widely used in cosmetics and skincare products. You can find them online or in health food stores.
  • Vegetable glycerin: This is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture in your skin and hair. Vegetable glycerin also adds some thickness and gloss to your eyebrow gel. You can find it online or in health food stores.
  • Mica powder: This is a natural mineral pigment that adds some color and shimmer to your eyebrow gel. Mica powder comes in various shades and can be mixed to create your desired hue. You can find it online or in craft stores.
  • Essential oils: These are optional, but they can add some fragrance and benefits to your eyebrow gel. Essential oils are concentrated extracts from plants that have various properties and effects. For example, rosemary essential oil can stimulate hair growth, while lavender essential oil can calm and heal your skin. You can use any essential oil that you like, but make sure to use them sparingly and dilute them with a carrier oil before adding them to your eyebrow gel. You can find essential oils online or in health food stores.

You will also need the following tools:

  • A small bowl: This is where you will mix your ingredients.
  • A microwave: This is where you will melt your emulsifying wax flakes.
  • A toothpick: This is what you will use to stir your ingredients.
  • A small funnel: This is what you will use to transfer your eyebrow gel into a container.
  • An eyebrow tube container: This is where you will store your eyebrow gel. An eyebrow tube container is a small plastic tube with a brush applicator inside. You can reuse an old mascara or eyeliner tube, or buy a new one online or in beauty supply stores.

How to Make DIY Eyebrow Gel

Now that you have gathered your ingredients and tools, you are ready to make your own eyebrow gel. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Melt the emulsifying wax flakes in a small bowl in the microwave for 15-second intervals until melted.
  2. Add the vegetable glycerin and stir well with a toothpick.
  3. Add the mica powder coloring of your choice and continue to stir until the gel is nearly cooled.
  4. Add a few drops of essential oils if desired and stir again.
  5. Use a small funnel to transfer the gel into an eyebrow tube container.
  6. Shake the container well before using.

That’s it! You have just made your own DIY eyebrow gel. You can use it right away or store it in a cool and dry place for up to two months.

How to Use DIY Eyebrow Gel

Using your DIY eyebrow gel is very easy and similar to using a store-bought one. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Clean and groom your eyebrows as usual. You can use a spoolie brush to comb your brows and trim any excess hairs with scissors.
  2. Apply your eyebrow gel with the brush applicator. Start from the inner corner of your brow and work your way outwards. Use short and light strokes to coat your brows evenly and shape them as desired.
  3. Let the gel dry for a few minutes. You can use a tissue or a cotton swab to remove any excess gel or smudges.
  4. Enjoy your beautiful and defined brows!

FAQs About DIY Eyebrow Gel

Here are some common questions and answers about DIY eyebrow gel:

  • Q: Can I use other ingredients to make DIY eyebrow gel?
  • A: Yes, you can experiment with different ingredients to make your own eyebrow gel. For example, you can use gelatin, flaxseed, or agar-agar instead of emulsifying wax flakes to create a gel-like texture. You can also use other natural colorants such as cocoa powder, coffee, or charcoal instead of mica powder to create a tinted gel. However, keep in mind that some ingredients may have different effects on your skin and hair, so do a patch test before using them.
  • Q: How can I make my DIY eyebrow gel waterproof?
  • A: To make your DIY eyebrow gel waterproof, you can add some beeswax or candelilla wax to your recipe. These waxes are natural and create a protective layer on your brows that repels water and sweat. However, they also make your gel harder and less flexible, so use them sparingly and adjust the amount of other ingredients accordingly.
  • Q: How can I remove my DIY eyebrow gel?
  • A: To remove your DIY eyebrow gel, you can use any makeup remover or cleanser that you normally use. You can also use some oil, such as coconut oil or olive oil, to dissolve the gel and wipe it off with a cotton pad or a cloth.
  • Q: Is DIY eyebrow gel safe and effective?
  • A: DIY eyebrow gel is safe and effective as long as you use quality ingredients and follow the instructions carefully. DIY eyebrow gel can help you shape, tame, and fill in your brows naturally and affordably. However, if you have any allergies, sensitivities, or medical conditions, consult your doctor before using DIY eyebrow gel or any homemade product.


Eyebrow gel is a great product to have in your makeup bag. It can help you achieve beautiful and defined brows that last all day. But you don’t have to buy an expensive or chemical-laden eyebrow gel from the store. You can make your own DIY eyebrow gel at home with simple and natural ingredients. It’s easy, cheap, and fun. Plus, you can customize it to your liking and needs.
