If you’ve ever wanted the chance to make the statement that you have “great eyebrows,” but you’re not quite ready to make that commitment to a permanent dye job. Then you’re in luck! There are a variety of temporary eyebrow dyes to choose from on the market. One such temporary brow dye is the popular “Bleach and Burn” technique. If you want to try this out, here are 7 steps to make sure your first bleach and burn is a success.
1. Prime and Set
When you want to rock (temporary) bleached brows, you have to have a game plan. If you want to rock a bleached brow, you should prime your brows, set your brows, and then fill in the brows with a brow pencil.
2. Layer Concealer
It is always a good idea to have a spare tube of concealer because bleaching your hair or eyebrows can make the concealer turn white and it will begin to look patchy. To avoid this from happening, layer some concealer on top of your eyebrows and then you can use a pencil or eyeliner to color it in. If you want to use the color that is already in the tube, you can use a small brush to apply it to your eyebrows.
3. Use the Right Colors
Once you have bleached your hair, you’ll need to experiment with the right colors. In most cases, you’ll need a darker color. When your hair is bleached, you’ll have a lighter color. The lighter color is what the bleach stripped from your hair, so you’ll need to go back to the darker colors. You can take a look at your hair in the mirror or go on allure fashion for ideas. Once you find a color you like, you can use hair dye to achieve the look that you want. Often, you’ll need to use a temporary dye for bleaching.
4. Brush it Out
In order to achieve your desired look, you need to brush it out with a brow brush. The brush should be a medium-sized, soft bristle brush that has densely packed bristles. You want to use a product that will create the desired look in a few hours. When you are ready to apply the product, start with an eye shadow primer. This will help the product stay on your brows for a long time. Apply the product with a brush in a thin, even layer. You’ll want to do this in one direction or the other (up and down for thick, arched brows or sideways for thinner brows). Finally, set the product with an eyebrow gel, powder or a wax.
5. Blend More
When you are going for a new look, you are going to have to find a way to blend your highlights. Your best bet is to use a tinted brow gel. This will help your colored hair to blend with your natural hair color. You can also use a brow pencil to fill in your brows. However, this is temporary. You can apply a brow gel and then use a brow brush to brush the gel out. This will give you a more natural look.
6. Make a Statement
While you’re interested in bleaching your brows, you may be wondering how to make a statement with it. In order to make your statement, you should just go for the bold and bright. You should also use a temporary bleaching product that has a lightening agent like the one used in the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow range. The lightening agent used in this range helps to fade brown and darken blond hair without any harsh chemicals. It also helps to make your brows look perfect in just five minutes.
7. Add Highlighter
If you’re looking for a makeup technique that will make your eyes pop, try using a highlighter on your eyebrows. Highlighters can be used on just about any part of your face, but they don’t need to be used just on your brows. Highlighters can also be used on your eyes, nose, cheeks and lips. The best highlighters to use on your brows are powder highlighters or cream highlighters. Powder highlighters are easy to apply and won’t smudge during the day. Cream highlighters are a little more complicated, but they are long-lasting and come in a variety of colors.
