Watch This Beauty Blogger Tint Her Brows With Coffee And Gravy

You can try it, but don’t taste it!

Published September 12, 2017

Nothing gets between us and our morning cup of coffee — but did you know you can use it to tint your brows? We didn’t either.

In case you didn’t know, coffee grounds do make a mean (but messy) body scrub, helping reduce the look of cellulite and eliminating dry skin. But that’s not what this post is about.

Yesterday, beauty blogger Atreona Willis, aka @curvy_cartel, took DIY to new levels and made a mix of gravy (yes, the kind you cook with), coffee and conditioner to make her brows pop.

Peep the how-to video below:

Brow tinting is great for those who want to beef up sparse brows, enhance the shape and eliminate the need for daily fill-ins with powder (or pencil). Consider this a mini-time saver if you want to ensure your brows are #onfleek 24/7.  

Other beauty websites suggest a mix of coffee grounds, cocoa powder, honey and coconut oil as the perfect tinting recipe. But hey, to each her own. She got the results she wanted, am I right? 

While there is a method to the madness, we couldn’t stop laughing at @iamzoie’s hilarious take on the beauty tutorial. We feel you, we weren’t sure where Atreona was taking this one for a minute.

The question remains — with eyebrow tinting costing $20+ a session (at least in NYC), would you try this DIY hack? Hit us in the comments below.
