DIY Eyebrow Shaper Wax
This DIY eyebrow shaper wax was inspired by NYX’s Eyebrow Shaper Wax. It provides hold without being sticky or leaving clumps behind like other eyebrow shaper wax pencils can. It also won’t pull out eyebrow hair with use as I found was sometimes an issue.
To create my DIY eyebrow shaper wax, I used neem oil, vitamin E and rosemary essential oil based on their hair care properties. I also added a touch of shea nut oil to moisturize and condition. You’ll find that this DIY eyebrow shaper wax is very easy to make. And using lip balm tubes rather than a pot or jar allows for an easy pencil like application! Plus you can even lend a stick to your favorite male to help him tame his own unruly whiskers whether it’s his eyebrows or his mustache!

You’ll need to use either a double boiler for this eyebrow shaper wax recipe or a microwave at 50% power.
Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a double boiler. Melt the beeswax. Then weigh out the coconut oil – I used refined coconut oil which has a 76° F melt point but unrefined with a higher melt point will likely work just as well – castor and hemp seed oil. Stir into the melted beeswax.
Using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the shea nut oil and stir into the eyebrow shaper wax concoction. Then using a dropper or transfer pipette add the neem oil, vitamin E oil and rosemary essential oil. Mix well to thoroughly combine all the ingredients then pour into lip balm tubes and allow to cool.
This eyebrow shaper wax recipe yields seven eyebrow shaper waxes in lip balm tubes. Alternately you can also pour this into a 1 oz. tin for use exclusively as a mustache wax.
Need more hold? Simply add more beeswax until you reach desired amount of hold.
