How to get the perfect fluffy brows?
If you want your brows to look naturally fuller but not too bushy, fluffy brows are the most sought-after look in the eyebrow world right now. They are an evolution of the eyebrows, where the fullness is still the main focus, but with an emphasis on lifting and texture – fluffy at the front, full at the arch and tapered at the end.
Unlike a brow lamination, fluffy brows are all about creating texture, but they should look soft and full. You can change the amount of color product you put into the fluffy brow to make it as strong or as natural as you wish.
Get the fluffy brows with these simple steps
- First, comb through your eyebrows to groom them, but also to see where to use color products if there are sparse areas.
- Shape the brows subtly. If there are stray hairs above or below the arch, you can remove them to get a cleaner shape. Be careful not to take too much away from your natural brows. Fluffy brows look best when they are full.
- Fill in the sparse areas. Take your favorite colored eyebrow product, this can be a pencil or eyebrow gel. Draw light, hair-like strokes where you want to accentuate your eyebrow shape. To keep the look natural, simply fill in the gaps. For a bolder look, fill in the brow. Create depth on the bottom but not so much on the top as we want to make sure we can see the hairs.
- Now it’s time to lift and fluff the brows with an eyebrow gel. You can use a tinted gel that matches your natural shade or a clear gel. With the clear version, you get a delicate version of the fluffy brows that fixes and lifts the brows but reduces the illusion of fullness a bit. It’s also great if you prefer a brushed-up, laminated look. If you want a full finish then the tinted gel is your best bet. Start in the middle of the brow and sweep it up at an angle so you can see the fluffy ends of the eyebrow hairs pointing up toward the skin. Then do the same for the brow tail, this time combing down but still at an angle, so you can see the hairs.
- Concentrate on the inner corner of the eye. This is where you should apply the least amount of product, so it doesn’t look too heavy. But you need to make sure the brow hairs are pointing straight up to create the fluffy texture you want. Once the brow gel has dried you can touch up with the pencil if you feel like you need more definition.
How to do fluffy brows with a soap bar
Soap brows are more than just a new way to style your eyebrows. If you scroll through Instagram or TikTok, you’ll see that this is more than just your average beauty trend. If you want to try this Fluffy Brows trick but don’t know exactly how to do it, here is a quick guide.
Before you grab the first bar of soap you can get your hands on, there are a few important things to consider. Choose a soap that contains glycerin, as this really fills the brow hairs and holds them in place for a long-lasting look. Next you should make sure that the soap is transparent and can be easily distributed on the eyebrow. Otherwise you may see white residue.
- Use a waterproof eyebrow pencil to fill in the sparse areas.
- Slightly moisten the surface of the soap. It should have a paste-like consistency, but not so wet that it foams. Then, swipe a clean eyebrow brush over the wet bar of soap. Make sure the bristles are completely covered but not overflowing with soap.
- Comb the soapy spoolie through the hairs and shape your brows the way you want them. If you wish to apply additional coats for a stronger hold, you should wait for each coat to dry before applying the next.
