Get Fuller Brows: Soap Brows Technique

I kept hearing about the ‘soap brows’ technique and had no idea what it was, so when I started seeing youtube videos about it, I watched a few and soon realised I had to try it out!

The idea is basically using a damp brow spoolie which you rub onto a bar of clear soap, and then use it to set your brows in the place of a brow gel. I’ve been trying it out recently and I love it! Such a clever idea, one that I know has been around for years used by makeup artists or for drag makeup, but now it is a way we can achieve fuller, natural brows too that stay in place all day. The soap adds some very slight texture to brow hairs too. You need to always use clear soap, to avoid coloured brows!

So first, get your spoolie damp – not dripping wet though. Too much water will make the soap bubble, definitely not a good look. You only need enough water to loosen the soap enough to coat the spoolie. I just wipe the spoolie on the soap till you have some all the way around, without picking up too much product. Next, you can just brush the soap through your brows, which allows you to really shape your brow as you would like. I like to brush mine upwards to give as much volume as I can, then sweep the spoolie over the top of my brows to stop them looking too dramatic. The soap technique means your brows will set and stay wherever you brush them, better than any brow gel I have tried. I always extend my brow slightly, so I use my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade to draw in tiny hair strokes for a natural look.

So that is how to do the ‘soap brow’ technique! I also have been using it as a finishing brow gel alternative, once I’ve applied my Dipbrow, just to make sure the hairs stay in place.

What are your thoughts on soap brows?

    I’ve seen this around too, but since I already have frightfully angry eyebrows I have never really needed to make them look fuller.
