      Smart Hacks To Cover Grey Eyebrows

      • The natural remedies take time to show effect. If you do not have that time and you want a smart solution for your problem, we have a few for you.
      • Pluck it! Just like you would pull out the extra eyebrow hair to push the parlour appointment further, you can pluck out the grey eyebrows. However, this method is effective only if you have a few grey eyebrow hairs. If you have a lot of grey hair, this is not a great option.
      • Use an eyebrow pencil. The eyebrow pencil can not only define and fill in your brows but also cover the grey hair. Use the pencil as you would normally do. Just go a little bit hard on the grey hair.
      • Mascara to the rescue! If you have naturally dark hair, you can use the mascara to cover the grey eyebrows. Using a mascara will define and colour your eyebrows at the same time. However, before you use the mascara, make sure that you wipe the product at the neck of the bottle to make it less intense.
      • You can also use your regular hair dye to cover the grey hair. Be really careful while using it. It can easily stain the skin around the brows, giving you an unnatural look.
