There are some beauty treatments best left to the professionals, but getting DIY with others can save you a lot of time and money.

Texas teen Gabriella Robles first posted the trick on Twitter in July but it’s recently resurfaced and people can’t get enough. The tweet has now been retweeted over 15,000 times.
“So I dyed my own brows today and boy was I scared but yolo am I right ladiesss,” she originally tweeted.
The process is simple - Robles cleaned her brows and the surrounding skin with a wipe, and then applied white oil paint around her brows to get the preferred shape to prevent the dye from staining her skin. Allure suggests using Vaseline, coconut oil or even a white eyeliner pencil instead of the oil paint because it's a) better for your skin, b) easier to get and c) cheaper.

The 16-year-old then applied Just For Men Mustache and Beard Hair Colour, $12.79, onto her brows with an eyebrow brush, waited five minutes and then washed off the dye and paint with soap and water.
And if you don't believe the great results looking at her brows, just look at the people who have since tried her hack.
