Tutorial: How to Color Your Eyebrows for Cosplay (3 methods)

So you’ve got a stunning new wig for your cosplay, but there’s one small problem – your eyebrows don’t match the vibrant color! Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Adding color to your eyebrows can make your cosplay look even more natural and adds that extra touch of authenticity. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through three different methods to achieve perfectly colored eyebrows for your cosplay.

Method 1: Tinting Dark Eyebrows

The first method is the simplest and works best if you have dark-colored wigs. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Eyeshadow or brow pencil in your desired color
  • Small angled eyeliner brush
  • Clean spooly brush

1. Use an angled brush to add color

Take your angled eyeliner brush and apply the eyeshadow or brow pencil in small strokes following the direction of your eyebrow hairs. Opt for a brighter color than you think you need, as the dark hairs of your eyebrows will slightly mute the color.

2. Use a spooly brush to even out the color

Using a clean spooly brush, comb through your eyebrows to evenly distribute the color. This step also helps remove excess color, so you may need to add another layer or two of eyeshadow for the desired intensity.

3. Clean up the edges

If you need to tidy up any stray color around your eyebrows, use a Q-tip with foundation to clean up the edges and keep the color contained.

Method 2: Brighter Colored Eyebrows

If you want to achieve brighter eyebrows without completely covering them, this method is for you. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • White cream makeup
  • Clean spooly brush
  • Cream makeup or eyeshadow in your desired color
  • Angled eyeliner brush

1. Use white cream makeup or eyeliner on your brows

Coat your eyebrow hairs with white cream makeup or a cream eyeliner pencil. This creates a base coat to enhance the brightness of the color you’ll apply later. Use a spooly brush to evenly distribute the white color and build up additional layers for a solid white surface.

2. Add color with an angled brush

Using the angled brush, apply your desired color of cream makeup or eyeshadow. Again, use small strokes in the direction of your eyebrow hairs for a natural look. Use the spooly brush to distribute the color evenly throughout your brows.

3. Clean up the edges

To achieve clean and defined eyebrows, carefully clean up the edges using a small brush or Q-tip. Remove any excess pigment to refine the shape and ensure a polished appearance.

Method 3: Covering Your Eyebrows

For those with darker natural eyebrows, this method provides an accurate match to your wig color. However, it requires more time and effort. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Glue stick
  • Small palette knife (optional)
  • Thick liquid concealer
  • Blending sponge
  • Powder foundation
  • Liquid foundation
  • Eyebrow card (optional)
  • Eyeliner or brow pencil in your desired color
  • Translucent powder

1. Prepare your eyebrows

Brush your eyebrow hairs upward using a spooly brush. This allows for a smoother gluing process and helps the hairs lay flat against your skin.

2. Glue your eyebrows

Apply a regular glue stick in an upward motion, following the direction of your eyebrow hairs. For a smoother surface, gently press the glued hairs down using a small painter’s palette knife. After the glue dries, add another layer for an even smoother surface.

3. Conceal and powder

Cover your glued eyebrows with a thick liquid concealer, patting it down with a blending sponge. Avoid over-blending to maintain the thickness of the concealer. Once dry, apply powder foundation or translucent powder to set the concealer. Repeat this process for three to five layers, ensuring your eyebrows are fully covered.

4. Apply foundation

Apply your foundation routine as usual, making sure to cover your eyebrows to match the rest of your face. Use both liquid and powder foundation for a seamless blend.

5. Draw your new eyebrows

Using a colored brow pencil or eyeliner, carefully draw your desired eyebrow shape, stroke by stroke. Alternatively, you can use powder or cream makeup with an angled brush. Mimic the appearance of individual hairs for a more realistic look.

6. Set your eyebrows

To ensure your newly drawn eyebrows stay in place, either apply a sealing spray or use translucent powder. If you used cream makeup, press the powder onto your eyebrows before brushing away any excess.

That’s it! Now you can finish your makeup, put on your wig, and admire your perfectly colored eyebrows.

Removing the makeup and glue

When you’re ready to remove the makeup, use a makeup remover to get the majority off. If using wipes, be prepared to use two or three to remove the thick layers of makeup. Use soap and water to gently clean off any remaining glue, then pat dry.

With these three methods, you can easily achieve vibrant and accurate eyebrow colors to complement your cosplay. Embrace your creativity, enjoy the transformation, and have a blast embodying your favorite characters!
