How to Lighten Eyebrows Successfully

Are you trying to figure out the best way to lighten eyebrows? Have you found a great color for your hair, only to discover that your eyebrows don’t match your new shade? It’s not unusual for eyebrows to be a lighter or darker shade then hair color after hair has been dyed. However, if you want to lighten eyebrows to match, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.

One way to lighten eyebrows is to use a facial bleaching cream on them. You only want to leave the cream on for about a minute because it works quickly. For instance, if you have dark black eyebrows and you want to turn them to a light shade of brown, you only need to leave the bleach on for a minute. Unless you want to lighten your eyebrows to a very pale blond, there is no need to leave the bleach on any longer than that.

If you’re unsure as to how long you need to leave it on your eyebrows then one thing you can do is to leave it on for 30 seconds and then wash it off with a damp cloth. If the color is not the shade that you want it, you can reapply the bleach and leave it on for another 30 seconds.

Before using the bleach on your eyebrows, you might want to test it first on your chin or on your upper lip where small hairs exist. This will let you know if you have a skin allergy to it. If your skin blisters or has any adverse reactions then don’t use it on your eyebrows.

After you have used the facial bleach, try adding some hair conditioner or lotion to your eyebrows. This will help soothe any irritated skin, as well as condition the hair in your eyebrows. Remember that your eyebrows contain hair and need to be taken care of, too.

You can also purchase eyebrow powder if you only want to temporarily lighten your eyebrows. You can find shimmery powder if you want a glamorous effect or a matte powder for something a little more subtle.

Another way to temporarily lighten eyebrows is to use an eyebrow gel that is colored. The gel also works as a sculpting agent, too. Some people have luck in using an eyebrow pencil for a temporary effect, too. Because using a pencil can color the actual skin and not necessarily the hair, you want to find a color that is a little lighter than you want.

If coloring your eyelashes is not something that you want to try on your own then you might want to consider getting it done professionally. A professional will be trained in coloring eyelashes, plus they can also wax and shape them to your desired effect as well. If you have just recently gotten your eyebrows waxed, however, you should wait a couple of days before having them dyed or bleached.

Of course, you can always leave your eyebrows as they are. Eyebrows aren’t meant to match your hair color exactly, after all. In fact, sometimes eyebrows that match perfectly look more unnatural than those that don’t. Individuals with blond hair should stick with a light brown or else they might risk getting transparent eyebrows that nobody can see. On the other hand, individuals with very dark hair look best with eyebrows that are charcoal gray.

It is important not to use the same dye on your eyebrows that you use on your hair. Doing this can cause blisters to erupt on your skin and you also run the risk of getting the harsh chemicals in your eyes, possibly causing permanent damage.
