We have something important to say. In case you weren’t aware, coloring your hair isn’t solely for the long strands atop your head. Your brows can get in on the hair color action, too. If you’re bored of having brows with an obviously natural hue, here’s your chance to mix things up and change their color. Of course, you’ll only want the best for your brows, which means choosing a look that’s totally on trend—i.e. bleached brows. Making your brows as light as can be has been a popular pick for models—both on the runway and off duty—on and off for years, but we’re here to say, bleached brows are officially back. The good news is, you don’t have to color your brows to give this beauty trend a spin. Simply apply a few key eyebrow makeup products to add shimmer and a lighter tone to your brows for the day.

How Can You Lighten the Look of Your Brows with Makeup?

Ready to put your own spin on the bleached brows trend? You can give your brows a lighter tone with the right eyebrow makeup. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Duo in Light or Medium to add a touch of shimmer to your brows, then follow up with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Custom Brow Shaping Pencil in Blonde. You can also use the lighter shades of the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara to help achieve this trending brow look. Keep in mind that these makeup products can add shimmer or a slightly lighter tone to your brows, not change the color of your brows.

What’s the Best Makeup Look for Lightened Brows?

When you bleach your brows, it isn’t only their color that will change. The makeup looks that work for you can change, too! If you were a fan of filling in your brows or over lining your eyes, it’s time to move on. Bleached brows are better suited to a beautifully basic look. Here’s how to get it:

Step 1: Apply foundation. You can’t skip your base. Using a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, apply the foundation of your choosing. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation for a matte finish or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation to get the appearance of a glow going.

Step 2: Contour. One thing that can happen when you have bleached brows is that your forehead can appear extra-large. If that’s not the look you’re after, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Contour Blender and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit to sculpt your forehead (and the rest of your face!).

Step 3: Define your crease. While a ton of eye shadow won’t be necessary, you will want to use at least one shade—a matte brown (try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Café Au Lait) to define the crease above your eyelid. Similar to why you should contour, this can keep your face from looking like one long blank space from the lashes up.

Step 4: Add mascara. It’s our opinion that every makeup look necessitates mascara, and this one is no exception. Sweep on the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara for the look of length and volume.

Step 5: Apply lipstick. If you’re feeling like your makeup look just isn’t bold enough, your lip color is your chance to change that. Choose a bright shade of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick and swipe it on.

If you don’t think bleached brows are the trend for you, not to worry, there are other options. Check out our article, Brushed and Bold: The Brows That Will Steal the Show This Holiday Season, for another idea.
