Want brows like Brooke Shields and Cara Delevingne? The answer is just sitting in your bathroom cabinet. And no, this is not quarantine getting to me, I’m being fully serious!
You may have seem the term ‘soap brows’ plastered all over the internet and thought, what is the world coming too? When I wash my dishes, will I have to give my brows the same treatment? And to be honest, I’m not going to lie to you, you have the theory down to a T.
It’s a viral phenomenon! One thing that is great about this beauty sensation, is that it won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Now who doesn’t love the sound of a budget but effective beauty product? I know I do!
Now, literally all you have to do to get the full bold brow look going for you is a bar of soap, you use this instead of brow gel if you already have that in your routine, as it’ll replace gel. And trust me, if you’re worried about it not being as effective, I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. Plenty of makeup artists go by this somewhat unorthodox method and actually prefer soap to groom eyebrows due to its stronger hold on hair, simplicity and affordability!
The method to the madness is super easy, dampen a clean spoolie (brow) brush, either with water but I highly recommend a setting mist like you would use to hold your makeup, as it has ingredients to give the brows the extra hold that you’re looking for. Then, apply it to the eyebrows, both brushing up and backcombing and up again until you get them styled as desired. And yes, it was meant to rhyme. Your brows will be as slick as my lines in no time!
Be careful not to go overboard on the soap right away. Remember, slow and steady always wins the race, especially when brows and soap are involved! *Send Help* You’ll get better hold and have more control of hair placement if you apply the soap in thin layers.
For the purpose of eyebrow grooming, you can’t use just any old soap that’s lying around. Especially not the ones on your sink that you use to wash your hands! Oh no no. The most important factor you should take into account when looking for the right soap is glycerin. Glycerin soap’s relatively low pH prevents irritation, which is definitely something you need in a product you’re putting directly on your face.
The best and most well known soap used for brows, is the Pear’s Transparent Soap, and the perfect spoolie (brow brush) accompaniment is the Docolor Duo Eyebrow Brush. The perfect match made in heaven and your brows will be looking fluffy and full in no time!
