How to set your eyebrows
These days there are many different lotions and potions on the market claiming to ‘fix your brows’ into position, however, like everything, there are some that work better than others. Some will fix your brows in place all day, whereas others will need reapplying.
Here we explore how to set your eyebrows using the different methods and products that are currently on the market.
Setting your eyebrows with Eyebrow Wax
Wax is greasy by nature and it’s no different when it comes to eyebrow wax. When applied, it allows the brows to be brushed into place. Due to the ‘sticky’ nature of wax however, dust particles and dirt can get trapped in the wax, which can clog pores and hair follicles over time. Based on experience, a brow wax can help ‘shape’ the brows, however it doesn’t really ‘set’ the brows into place for any real length of time.
Eyebrow Soap as a Brow fixer
Soap was originally used in the golden era of Hollywood to achieve those BIG brows and has made a resurgence in popularity recently due to the fluffy brow trend and for those wanting the laminated look!
The downside to using brow soap is that it can often make the brows appear ‘crusty’. If too much soap is used (and in many cases a fair amount is needed in order to achieve the desired hold), there is a risk of looking like the brows have dandruff – which we’re sure you would prefer to avoid!! So, if you are going to use soap as a brow fixer, we’d suggest the ‘less is more’ approach. Be aware though, this may mean they aren’t set for long. If you’re out for the whole day, it’s a definite no no.

Brow Gels as brow fixers
Brow gels are hugely popular due to the variety of clear, tinted and volumising options available. Because most are not fully-fledged ‘setting products’, as a general rule brow gels should not be used to set brows for long periods. The colouring and volumising properties are by far the primary benefits; setting the brows comes a secondary bonus! If you after a longer-lasting set, we’d recommend trying a brow fixing product in addition.
