How to: Bleach your EyebrowsBleaching my eyebrows was always a part of my regular beauty routine back when I had blonde highlights in my hair or when my hair was a lighter shade of brown. Everyone has their own preference and opinion about matching your eyebrows to your hair color or just bleaching/coloring the eyebrows in general (some like it, some don't), but when done properly, it can really enhance your look.
My eyebrows are very thick, coarse, dark, naturally high arched, non-symmetical (meaning they don't match) and grow quick. Or in other words, nightmare brows. So, I usually have a hell of a time getting them to match every day.
Because I have quite a bit of filling in to do, they can sometimes look too harsh, dark or obvious. I also think that when my brows are super dark, it can create too much emphasis on them, taking away from other features of my face. When they're lighter, the emphasis is taken off my brows and creates more emphasis to my eyes and lips.
In this post, I'm going to briefly go over how you can achieve lighter eyebrows in some really simple steps.
- Facial Bleach (I'm using Sally Hansen Creme Hair Bleach for the face)
- Spoolie (or a clean cosmetic wand)
- Vaseline (optional)
- Purple Shampoo or Hair Toner (optional - I'm using Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo)
