In one of my beautube marathon sessions, I discovered the hairspray makeup hack for brows. I’m sorry I can’t remember who the beautuber was (credit to whoever thought of this genius idea).
If you run out of brow mascara, groom your brows with a hairspray by spraying the latter to a spoolie brush and combing the brows.
I didn’t own hairspray at the time (I still don’t), but I remembered that I owned a mini-tub of hair wax that I haven’t been using since I stopped caring for baby hairs that keep sticking out from my head.
If hairspray could work for eyebrows, hair wax might work, too.
It was a little bit tricky during my first few tries. I had to figure out the right amount of product to use. If I don’t put enough, my eyebrow hairs will not hold. If I put too much, there will be white lard-looking residue clinging on individual hair strands.
The best thing about hair wax is that it looks like there’s nothing on the brows. My brows are already dense and tinted brow mascaras usually look off with my black hair. I also like that the hair wax doesn’t look wet (as most clear brow mascaras do) and doesn’t make my brows “crunchy”.
I either put the wax on the spoolie or directly on the brow hairs and comb my brows ’til the white lardish looking wax disappears.
This trick is perfect for people with dense unruly brows who usually go for the no makeup makeup look. This, plus a little bit of brow powder for definition is a must-try.
