Eyebrow trends are the one beauty trend that seem to be constantly changing. Super thin eyebrows were all the rave back in the day, then came thick drawn-on ones around 2016 and partially-shaved eyebrows after that. Now, the new soap brows look is totally taking over – and we love it!
If you’ve been on makeup-tok lately, or really just TikTok in general, soap brows might sound familiar to you. And it’s not surprising that this trend has been sweeping the platform for months. It’s insanely easy to do, goes well with any makeup look (even all-natural!) and is a staple amongst influencers and celebs. So, are you feeling ready to take on this new eyebrow trend and get the soapy brows of your dreams?
What Are Soap Brows?
While you’ve probably seen this popular trend all over, you might not be sure what it is because of how subtle and simple it is. So, what really are soap brows? Well, there’s not much to the look. Soap brows are just a matter of pushing up the brows using soap and making them look fuller and thicker. Yep, it’s that easy, which is probably why it’s on so many TikTok and Instagram feeds lately.
The soap brow look is the perfect compliment for a full face of glam or a bare-faced day. Plus, it’s so versatile! You can make the brows look super intentional and fluffed up or as natural and soft as you want with this trend. Whether you’re working all day, out shopping or dancing all night at the club, you can bet that your eyebrows will look fab–and they’ll be sure to stay put, too!
What Is The Best Soap For Brows?
Now the question is, what kind of soap should you use on your brows? The good news is, you have a couple of options. A lot of makeup brands have started selling products specifically for the soap brows look. This one from the brand Makeup Revolution is a solid, budget-friendly option and has great reviews. Or, if you’re balling on a budget, you can always use any old bar of soap which works just as well. Most of the TikTok community is using this Pears bar soap for their brow needs, which is under 10 dollars and is sure to last you a while. Both kinds of brow soap are great and will help you get the flawless look that celebs like Hailey Baldwin, Dua Lipa and Madelaine Petsch have been known to rock.
How To Get The Look
Time for the fun part! Take whatever soap you’re using and a makeup setting spray to spritz into the soap. This will let you get the soap wet and, well, soapy enough to hold your brows in place. Next, you’ll want to use an eyebrow brush when applying the soap to secure the hairs and get that perfectly brushed-up effect. Take your spoolie brush, swirl it into the product and apply it to your brows in an upward motion. After you’ve soaped them up, you can take your finger to press and smoothen the hairs in place. Finally, shape your brows to your liking and you’re done! Now you’ve got the perfect soap brow look that is sure to become your new favorite beauty trend.
