I couldn't stand to look at my brows anymore. They were just wrong! So, I went on to use a tutorial I found on Youtube a few months ago. It was created by SecretLifeofABioNerd, and you can view the video here. Most of these items can already be found in your home. I intended on spending no money, so I got extra crafty.
Waxing your brows is no joke, especially when using real wax. Since this is all natural (and water soluble), if you make a mistake, you can wipe it off with a wet paper towel. This made me a little less hesitant to try this out.
For the wax sticks, I just broke the head off of a q-tip. I figured it would be firm, and a shorter handle would give me better control when placing the wax on unwanted hair.
I cut strips out of scrap fabric that I use to shoot products on. Regular old white fabric that I purchased at the craft store. The first time I tried this tutorial, I used an old t-shirt. That worked too, but this was a little better.
The recipe calls for 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp brown sugar and a tbsp of water. Mix together the ingredients and microwave for 30 seconds. In the video, her's is far more thick than mine was. I like my texture better, because it definitely mimics real wax. Again, caution: this stuff gets hot quick! Blow on it for a few seconds to be sure that it isn't too hot. The first time I tried this, I tested directly on my hand--I have a burn scar to prove it.
To get precise results, I drew in my eyebrows with black liquid liner. They are over the top awful looking, but I can clearly see the hair that I want to remove. This is typically the shape that I wear, but it looks so bad since I'm using black cream. There are all types of products on the market for this, like white chalky pencils, but again, what's the point?
I probably got off half of the hair that I hoped for. So, I tweezed away. The tweezing helped me fine tune my results and I now have perfectly groomed brows. This was a quick fix for an awful brow situation. It is definitely easier to just go and get your brows done. But if you're looking to get the job done yourself, this works great. Again, this was my second attempt at the DIY brow wax, and I'm getting better with practice.
