Whether you thrive off of makeup artistry, natural makeup or no makeup at all, these trends will open a world of possibilities for all things makeup.
You might hate it, you might love it, but either way, it’s happening. Bleached brows are here and are taking over the beauty world one hair at a time. I know what you’re thinking, “Why would someone bleach their eyebrows?” Well, if you have a medium to light eyebrow shade, they can take no commitment. All that is needed for a DIY version of this look is concealer and a spoolie brush. However, if you have darker eyebrows the concealer might not be the best bet, but there is a way to naturally lighten your eyebrows! All it takes is lemon juice, a cup, Q-tips and time. If you’re ready to fully commit to bleaching your eyebrows, there are a few precautionary steps to take for it to work safely and effectively. First, use a skin protectant to stay away from bleach burns. Don’t forget to buy a bleaching agent safe for eyebrow hair! A highly recommended product is Refectocil Blonde Brow. Leave the product on for the appropriate amount of time and then rinse and wash. Now, go show off your new statement look to the world.
