What is the soap brows technique?

So, now that you know the soap brows basics, it is time to actually try out the brow look. Generally, the soap brows trend works the best for thicker, longer, and unruly eyebrows. If you are growing out your brows from over-plucking or have very fragile brow hairs, then opt for a brow gel, as it is gentler. So, it is time for you to take out your soap brow product of choice and an eyebrow spoolie. Next, wet your soap a little bit with a makeup setting spray, rose water, or just water from your sink. Make sure to not go overboard as you can create a lot of bubbles and foam, which is not the direction we are going for. After lightly wetting, the soap, take your eyebrow spoolie and run it over the bar of soap to pick up some of the product.  After that, just take it to your eyebrows and brush the product into the brow hairs. You can go in every direction to ensure that every brow hair is coated. When you are satisfied, brush your eyebrows up and create your ideal shape. You can opt for dramatic brushed-up flat eyebrows or a more fluffy look. It all depends on you! The last step is to press down the brow hairs with a towel or your fingers, even to ensure that they are glued to your face. There will be no budging throughout the day!

Does soap ruin eyebrows?

No! Just like soap does not ruin your body hair, it won’t do any harm to your brows. The only downside to soap brows is that the technique can slow down the brow hair growth process. But that applies to fragile brow hairs and vigorous brushing, which you should never do. If you are gentle and careful, soap should not ruin your eyebrows at all!
