Today my friend Bria colored my strands a deep golden blonde. Now as you know, my hair isn't an inch long. I can color every 2 weeks after each hair cut. Personally, I wait every 3-4 weeks. With this lighter hair color, I realized my eyebrows were too dark.
I became aware of the benefits of brow bleaching from studying master makeup artist's Kevyn Aucoin and Sam Fine. They encourage bleaching the brows to soften the face and open the eyes.
Sally Hansen's Creme Hair Bleach is my go-to "brow" bleach. It's super simple to use. I've used it on myself for years. In my past life, I wore weaves that were always lighter than my natural hair color. Being a beauty connoisseur, meant that I bleached my brows to match.
I will admit, the process can look intimidating; but, the results are definitely worth it.
The instructions are super easy to follow (I told you it was easy). I would recommend coating the skin directly above & below your brow with a thin layer of Vaseline to avoid contact with the bleach.
After bleaching my brows, I filled them in with the below products:
- Maybelline Master Shape Eyebrow Pencil (Soft Brown)
- MAC Eyebrow Pencil (Strut) only in the arch & tail for definition
- Ruby Kisses Brow Polish (Shimmering Blonde) **Great dupe for MAC's Brow Set in Girl Boy**
- Highlighted with a concealer/full coverage foundation 2 shades lighter than my complexion
Try it! You're guaranteed to love it!
