We’ve all heard it before: brows shape the face. It’s such an important part of any beauty routine, but with other problems like blemishes, wrinkles, or sun spots, brows can be easily overlooked. I know I only get my brows waxed about twice per year when I get my hair cut. I understand the importance of nice brows, but to be honest, $15/mo. to get a painful wax (and embarrassing since I turn super red) once a month is just not something I put as a priority. Not to mention driving all the way to the salon, waiting, and then driving home takes way too much time out of my day.
So I was excited when I discovered something that had been right in front of me the whole time: bleaching. Friends and family of mine have been bleaching their ‘staches, sideburns, and other unsightly hairs for years, but I never thought of putting it on my brows until recently. I already don’t like getting the top of my brows waxed because it looks so obvious that there’s a huge patch of hair missing when I put my makeup on, so bleaching really is the perfect solution!
Using Jolen creme bleach (available at ULTA) is super simple and very easy. Simply mix the formula together following the instructions & apply with a q-tip. Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes, wipe clean & you’re good to go!
Another important step to perfect brows is to always fill them in. No matter how bold your brows are, you should always add at least a little something to help even them out. I suggest either ELF eyebrow duo or Dolce & Gabbana shaping eyebrow pencil. I use and love both! Finally, go over them with a brow comb to set them. Some people use serums or gels to hold their brows in place, but that stuff makes me itchy, so I don’t use it personally.
And that’s it! Now you have perfect brows.
What brow grooming techniques do you suggest?
