How to Cover Eyebrows
The Drag Queen Eyebrows Bundle provides an opportunity to paint new eyebrows of any shape or style. For example, drag performers commonly raise their eyebrows to create more real estate for bold eye makeup. Even if you don’t perform, knowing how to cover your eyebrows is a fun skill for Halloween and special occasions.
Note: It’s possible to cover your eyebrows with washable glue stick and there are plenty of online tutorials about that method. This article will teach you how to cover eyebrows in a more professional method, with spirit gum and brow wax.
Step 1 – Prepare Your Face
Wash and dry your face. Do not apply any moisturizer or products that might prevent the spirit gum from sticking. We do recommend a quick swab with Mehron Skin Prep Pro to protect your makeup against perspiration.
Step 2 – Spirit Gum
Brush spirit gum onto the brows in two steps. First, brush them in a downward direction and then upwards, fanning the individual hairs across your forehead. Try to avoid overlapping your eyebrow hairs as this will result in a more visible texture under your makeup. This process will thoroughly coat each hair and give your brow bone a natural curve for that professional drag queen eyebrows look. Tip: use a comb for extra eyebrow control.
Step 3 – Wax
The purpose of this step is to fill the brow texture. In a pinch, you may build-up several more coats of spirit gum, allowing 10 minutes for each layer to dry. However, we strongly recommend using a brow wax, such as Mehron SynWax.
Use a makeup spatula to scrape off a ball of brow wax. Work the ball between your fingers until it warms up and achieves an even consistency. Then push the ball of wax into the root of your eyebrow. Use the spatula to spread the wax across your brow and work it to a smooth finish.
Step 4 – Seal the Wax
Apply Mehron Fixative “A” with a brush and allow 2-3 minutes to dry. Fixative “A” is a protective sealer coat that will protect the underlying wax and spirit gum as well as provide a base for your makeup.
Step 5 – Beard Cover
That’s right, you have beard shadow on your eyebrows! Your dark eyebrows will show through to produce blue tones at the surface. Neutralize them with a bit of orange concealer or Pink Goo beard cover. Set with powder.
Step 6 – Foundation
Apply a full-coverage foundation, set with powder and then finish your makeup routine. When wearing this much makeup, we recommend setting your finished makeup with Mehron Barrier Spray. It will keep your makeup looking fresh for longer.
