DIY Organic Eyebrow Pomade

Monday, May 15, 2017

Hello friends! I mentioned in my switch to all natural makeup products post that I now use a DIY eyebrow gel. Today I want to share with you my recipe. It's so natural you could eat it! All you need is two ingredients that you most likely already have in your home!

If you like to go all out with your brows, then this recipe most likely won't work for you. I like to fill in my eyebrows, but I'm not a huge fan of the whole ombre-brow trend (seriously, when will that end?!) I prefer just a minimal, more natural look.

This pomade gives an extra boost to your brows but in a lighter, more natural way. The best part is, it's absolutely chemical-free!

What you need:
1/4 teaspoon of organic coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon organic cocoa powder

That's it! Mix the coconut oil and cocoa powder together, transfer to a little jar (I like to use a sample sized container) and voila! This amount will last a looong time, a little goes a long way!

The pomade may look super dark when it's in the container, but it goes on the skin a lot lighter. Because it is made out of coconut oil, it may get a littler softer in the warmer months depending on where you keep it, but it is still useable! Just be mindful of the amount that ends up on your brush.

Now that I only use all natural makeup products, it's expensive to purchase new makeup. I'm really making it a goal to learn how to make more of my own makeup products. If you make your own makeup, I'd love to hear your recipes!

  1. What a great idea. I never thought about a DIY pomade. The recipe is really simple and I've got all ingredients at home. It looks natural and intense. Sometimes I dye my eyebrows because I'm lazy :)

    My current favourites are my DIY toner (1:1 Green Tea and apple vinegar) and my DIY deodorant (2 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 1/2 teaspoon natron and 2 teaspoon starch)

  2. Now 33 years old and I've never done anything with my eyebrows (aside from a bit of plucking), even though they are a somewhat sparse. However, I recently started exploring (non-toxic) makeup again and wanted to give brows a shot but didn't want to fork out the money for a store bought one. So I tried this recipe and I love it! Granted, it's the only thing on my face right now and takes a bit of getting used to, having never done brows (as I find most brow tutorials don't end up looking even remotely natural).

    However, you're right, a little goes a long way. I used an old RMS container, put it in there and got crazy results that match the color of my brows! Thank you so much for this simple recipe. Now I'm on the hunt for a DIY cream blush/tint, as I find cream anything gives a more natural look than powder.

    1. This is so amazing to hear Aubrey! Thanks so much for trying the recipe! I've heard beet powder makes a great blush tint, so maybe mixing that with a bit of coconut oil would do the trick!

  3. Maybe try dried red roses with argan or coconut oil
