Eyebrows took center stage in 2016, or should we say, center runway? Yes, we should, because eyebrows escalated from a personal face-feature to high-fashion accessory this year, and man what a year it’s been. Eyebrow styling has long been a contentious debate among women: are we going bushy or slick? Are my eyebrows on fleek? How many should brows there be? One? Two? Three? (Just kidding, we know from Ms. Congeniality that there should be two of them.)

Yes, to many of us, eyebrows are a chore. Refinery29 recently proclaimed that “Eyebrow-Grooming Is The New Pimple-Popping On YouTube,” and oftentimes that’s true! However, Facebook user The Real Destiny Marilyn just posted a video of a person using men’s hair dye to transform her brows, and we promise that this one’s ~different~.

First, you need mustache and beard dye that’s “just for men” (muahaha)


You can find it on Amazon for as little as $10! Also needed: a slanted brush. Try this Maybelline brush that’s $6.

Next, mix the dyes


The Just For Men dye comes with a ‘color base’ and ‘natural color developer,’ along with a tray to mix them together in equal parts.

Then use vaseline to outline your brows


So your dye doesn’t get all over your skin of course!

Brush the mixed dye onto your brows


Make sure to apply evenly so you don’t end up with cheetah brows… Or actually? That sounds cool, so do whatever you want.

Wait for *Magical Transformation* to take place


According to the video, five minutes should do the trick so don’t get too sucked into whatever Westworld episode you’re watching.

Final step: wash brows with wet washcloth


It’s like the part when the magician uses their cape to cover the trick.

And voilà! Thicker brows.


And yes, they’re totally on fleek.

The best part? No threading, mascara brushing, tweezing, or tattooing required. YES!
