Soap Brows?


Cinthia Bustos

Most girls who are even the least bit makeup obsessed can agree on one thing: eyebrows make a huge difference. Believe it or not, eyebrows are an essential feature that can completely change the way you look. Even without knowing, most of us rely on our eyebrows to help us look either younger or older, depending on the brow’s thickness.

To achieve what beauty gurus call “the perfect brow” you are required to purchase expensive brow products such as pomades, powders, pencils, and primers that do not always work out for everyone or give out perfect results. The most important product, however, is the primer, also know as brow gel, that helps keep your brows stay in place all day. High end end brow products can range from $20 to $60! Therefore, making most girls miss out on such necessity.

Thanks to new beauty trends, and apparently an old Hollywood trick, I have learned that you can substitute brow gel using a bar of soap! This technique is completely inexpensive because it only requires an eyebrow spoolie and, obviously, a bar of soap. You simply pass the spoolie over the soap, then brush it through your brows to give them a feather-like texture. This technique works the same way as any regular brow gel that makes your brows look naturally thicker and fuller. Now, if you are looking for a more dramatic effect, simply go over your soap-coated hairs with your tinted product of your choice like a powder, pencil, or pomade.

Overall, I would give this technique a rating of a 5/5 thanks to the fact that you can try this out without having to purchase something you do not already have at home. In addition, if the technique does not give you the results you were hoping for, you will not have to worry about wasting over $20 on high end brow gel.
