Eyebrow lightening has become a common practice among people of all ages. Whether we choose to lighten our eyebrows because they tend to be overpowering or to follow the latest fashion tendencies it's important to be aware of all the options we have to make this change.
This season nude eyebrows are a leading
trend when it comes to makeup. Those who are eager to follow the
latest fashion trends are undoubtedly interested in finding out
various methods to lighten their eyebrows risk-free, especially
since now there's no need to match the color of your hair with the
color of your eyebrows.
If however you are not ready to make a statement with the nude eyebrows look, you can still benefit from lightening your eyebrows. As a general rule, the color of your eyebrows should be slightly darker compared to the color of your hair.
Eyebrow lightening can help you emphasize your eyes, softening your facial features as long as you take into account your skin tone and hair color. If you are unsure about what tint you should use and don't want to take any risks, you can try lightening your eyebrows with makeup. Pale yellow eyeshadow or an ivory shade are good choices.
You should choose eyeshadow colors that emphasize your eyes and
draw attention from your eyebrows. Other temporary methods of
eyebrow lightening are using an eyebrow pencil, eyebrow powder or a
translucent eyebrow gel.
If you are determined to make a more permanent change, here are other popular methods you can use for eyebrow lightening:
This method is not usually recommended for home use, as any wrong movement can cause eye irritations. Bleaching can be done either using hydrogen peroxide or by using a facial bleach cream. Beauticians seem to prefer the first method as hydrogen peroxide is generally considered safer.
For bleaching your eyebrows through this method you are going to need clarifying shampoo, a Q tip, a cup of warm water and a small amount of hydrogen peroxide. The eyebrows must first be cleaned thoroughly with the clarifying shampoo to remove any impurities.
While waiting for the eyebrows to dry mix hydrogen peroxide in a cup of water and start applying the mixture on your eyebrows using a Q tip. Allow the mixture to sit on your eyebrows for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse. The facial bleach method works a lot faster as you only need to apply the cream on your eyebrows for one minute.
Lightening with natural herbs
If you are interested in avoiding harsh chemicals and you want to have complete control over the shade you aim to acquire, you should definitely try using natural herbs for eyebrow lightening. With natural herbs, the change is gradual and happens over the course of a few weeks. The most popular herb used for eyebrow lightening is chamomile which is sometimes used in combination with marigold or fresh lemon juice for a stronger effect.
You can even use hair dye to lighten your eyebrows, however you should keep in mind that it's not advisable to use the same shade that you used to color your hair with. Use a semi-permanent dye if you are unsure about the most suitable shade for you. While you can try all these methods at home, the easiest way to get the best results is to go to a beauty salon where experienced beauticians can give you the best advice and perform the procedure safely.
