Bleached eyebrow is a popular fashion trend. A number of celebs including Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, Rita Ora, Katy Perry and others have grabbed lot of attention in the fashion circle in recent years by lightening their eyebrows. However, flaunting the new look is not easy for most women. Before experimenting with the latest fashion trend, make sure that your hair color and skin tone is compatible with the bleached brow. Nevertheless, if you have natural course and very dark eyebrow, lightening the color helps in enhancing your appearance.
Bleaching the eyebrow is easy. However, be careful while applying the bleaching agent. Precaution needs to be taken to protect the surrounding skin from the bleach.
Here Are The Steps That You Should Follow To Lighten Your Eyebrows:
Things You Will Need:
Good quality facial bleach
Preparing The Eyebrows
Clean the eyebrow area and pat dry. Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly on the skin around the eyebrows. This helps in protecting the skin from the bleach.
To prevent allergic reactions, take a small amount of cream and apply it on a small area of your skin and wait for about a minute. If there is no severe reaction, the facial bleach is safe for use.
Applying The Bleach
Select a facial bleach of a reliable brand which is normally used for lightening the facial hair. Follow the instruction on the pack to mix the bleach. With a spoolie brush take a small amount of the bleach and apply it on the eyebrow hair. Carefully comb the eyebrow with the spoolie brush to make sure that each hair is coated with the bleach. Take a small amount of bleach at a time to thoroughly coat the eyebrow. For a slightly lighter shade leave the bleach on the eyebrow for about 2 to 5 minutes. Wait for up to 10 minutes to give your eyebrow a more lighter shade. With a damp cloth, wipe off the cream. Follow the same procedure for bleaching your other eyebrow.
How To Get The Perfect Shade
For slightly lightening the eyebrow a single application is considered enough. Multiple applications are needed for a more dramatic look. If the bleach stays for a longer time on your eyebrow, your eyebrow color may turn orange or yellow.
