I’m such a rebel when it comes to gender-marketed products. I still haven’t tried Dr. Pepper 10, but I will, with a vengeance.
You’ve probably heard or seen how men’s grooming products are cheaper than women’s. I remember a long time ago buying Clinique eye cream for men and loving it, and especially loving the lower price. How different can the delicate under-eye skin REALLY be in a man versus a woman? Products are sexist!
Well, you, too, can rebel against instructions and gender-oriented beauty products and make Just For Men Mustache & Beach Brush-In Color Gel a part of your formula for sexiness.
BUT I DON'T HAVE A MUSTACHE AND/OR BEARD
It's going on your eyebrows!
Eyebrows are important. They give the face structure. Unfortunately, I started tweezing shortly after learning what tweezers are, and my poor eyebrow follicles are perpetually in shock and the hair never grows in properly.
This is a great trick for anyone who has ever thought their eyebrows look a little thin, or don’t quite mesh with dyed-darker hair colors; or perhaps you've noticed products that contain benzoyl peroxide can gradually bleach out your eyebrows, eventually diminishing their appearance and overall definition.
Since I think dark eyebrows look hot and mysterious, I tint mine with Just For Men to make my patchy brows look thicker and darker and give my face some contrast. Tinting your eyebrows also cuts down on your daily beauty regimen if lots of eyebrow pencil is usually part of it.
I used to pay around $30 to have this done in a salon, but doing it yourself is totally cheaper and better. Plus, it’s so fast and easy to do and it instantly makes you look more glamorous: Joan Crawford bossy and very Eastern-European supermodel-y.
Just For Men Mustache & Beard Brush-In Color Gel is my favorite way to give my eyebrows a boost for around $9. A box lasts for months, since you only use a tiny bit.
LET'S DO THIS
What you need:
- Makeup remover wipes
- Just For Men Mustache & Beard Brush-In Color Gel in a shade or two darker than your hair color (or, if you’re like me and want a slightly unnatural look, go for the total opposite--I used Dark Brown, M45).
- An old T-shirt
- An angled eyeliner brush (or the mustache brush in the kit)
To get started, generously paint the skin surrounding your eyebrows with a thick layer of Vaseline. This will keep the dye in place and prevent your skin from getting horrible stains that will make you look like Bert from Sesame Street.
Mix a pea-sized amount from each of the tubes provided together.
Carefully apply mixture gently to eyebrows with the mini mustache brush provided or an angled eyeliner brush and watch the color develop to make sure you are not dying your skin or getting it in your eyes, which can make you blind and is why it says on the box not to do this.
It’s best to stand near a mirror after you coat your eyebrows with the color gel to watch the color develop. Use Q-tips to clean up the borders as you see fit so your skin doesn’t get stained.
Wait 5 to 10 minutes and wash it off, or be really lazy like me and use makeup remover wipes.
From my experience, it’s safe as long as you’re thorough and wipe all the dye away from your face.
Voila! The results are subtle, but it eliminates the need for eyebrow pencil! Hooray!
