The Best Faux-Bleached Brow Tutorials on the InternetSeptember 01, 2021
Bleached brows have graced high-fashion runways and the pages of your favorite magazines, but how is it possible to wear this eyebrow trend in everyday life? The commitment of actually bleaching your brows is certainly an intimidating one (not to mention, we don’t all have stylist magicians on hand to create the look for one fleeting event). So, we’ve rounded up the best makeup tutorials that can teach you how to lighten your brows — without a drop of bleach required!
The Bleached-Out Brow
Beauty vlogger PICTURRESQUE I Regina proves that you can achieve the bleached brow look even if you have dark bushy brows. First, take a nude pot eyeliner or primer, like the NYX Professional Makeup Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone and brush it evenly through your brows with a spoolie until fully saturated. To lighten up any remaining hairs, take a blonde root spray and gently paint over the spots with an angled brush.
The Neutralized Brow
For an ultra natural effect, beauty YouTuber Donayah uses brow gel (our favorite is the L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Clear Top Coat) to first tame her eyebrows and lock them in place. Next, dip a clean spoolie into your concealer and gently brush it through your eyebrows to lighten them. You can either end your look there, or give your brows a little more definition by using a lighter concealer shade to outline them.
The Blonde Brow
Here, YouTuber Abii Jones showcases the simplest way to achieve the bleached brow look on dark skin tones. All she uses is a cream colored eyeshadow to shape and fill in her brows.
The Slicked-Back Brow
No matter how dark your eyebrows are, the key is to first slick them back before attempting to lighten them with makeup, explains YouTuber Vanity Rouge. In this tutorial, she uses a skin-safe glue stick to push her brows back before filling them in with concealer.
