Sorry about no post yesterday. My doctor put me out of work again...i'm just a sicky! I'm feeling better now though...enough to get back to another post. This is from a few weeks back...The title says it all. I was inspired by my girl Joy to finally do something about my brows. While my natural hair color is jet black...the only time you can see it is when my roots are growing out. I always color my hair usually in the brown with golden highlights category. As a result, I usually pick a lighter color to fill in my eyebrows.
My girl Joy mentioned that she used bleach to lighten her eyebrows. I had never tried it before but was intrigued. I decided, why not...I could always fill them in anyways.
I went to my local grocery store and picked up Sally Hansen's Cream bleach for a few bucks.
The instructions are super easy. You mix the bleach and the activator and just apply to the hair you want lightened. I made sure to do a test spot on my inner arm 24 hours before. If you have super sensitive skin like me, make sure to do this to ensure that you don't have any crazy reactions.
I took this super glamorous shot of me with the bleach, lol. I applied it covering my entire eyebrows and while I was at it, I threw some on the 'stache. I left it on between 8-10 minutes...the recommended time.
I shot a before and after so you can see the difference. As you can see, it's subtle but still definitely makes a difference. My eyebrows are now a brownish shade as opposed to black. This makes it so much easier to fill in my brows! I think going a shade lighter than your hair color to fill in your brows is also vary flattering to the face...it lightens up ones look. Too dark brows can often look heavy and harsh.
If you're interested in lightening your brows, give Sally Hansen cream bleach a shot!
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
