How to do an ombré brow!!
I really like doing this for kind of artsy events like poetry slams, gallery exhibits, or local band concerts. You can do this with any color or colors you want, and I usually pair this with a black v-neck tucked into a hot pink, white, and navy blue dip-dye skirt with a hot pink scarf.
There are a couple of different way to do this and I’ll cover both of them! They start differently but end the same, so I’ll explain both beginnings:
The first and easiest way to cover your brow is to use a glue stick of any kind of kiddie glue. Elmer’s works well. Just put the glue directly onto your brow, first pushing the hairs up and then back in the direction of your natural brow growth. This way will cover your eyebrows so that no hair is visible, which will make the colored brow more perfect and less natural.
The second way, which is also safer because with glue you risk pulling out your brows later, just uses Chapstick. I have this really disgusting Vitamin Water Chapstick that’s too greasy and tastes awful, so I used that in place of a glue stick in the same way. This allows your eyebrow hairs to show through, as you can see in the picture.
This is where both methods start having the same steps.
After your brows are covered with glue or Chapstick, you’re going to have to wipe off any excess on your forehead or browbone and then powder your brows. This will mattify them and prevent any stickiness. After powdering, apply your regular foundation over the brow and powder again. Then, pat concealer onto your brows, making sure to really work it into the spaces between the hairs. Give it a minute to set, then brush some more foundation over it and powder again. Your brows should be covered at this point and you can start using color.
This step is optional but will help the color stick better. I used regular eyeliner to apply to the brow as a base (I have pink, blue, and purple eyeliner lying around from my scene phase) and blended them together where they met.
Then I used an angled brush (the one I use to fill in my brows daily) and pink, purple, and blue eyeshadows and pushed the colors into their respective spaces on my brows and blended them together.
That’s it! You can give them a quick coat of hairspray to help them last if you want, but otherwise you’re done!
