Couldn't explain to the new master what exactly you need? Or was she herself distracted by something important and overexposed the paint? It doesn't matter, you can try to correct eyebrow color that is too dark at home, but it is important to know how to do it right.
Eyebrows are considered almost the most important accent of the image. If they have a suitable shape and a rather bright shade, you can hardly use makeup - your face will look expressive anyway!
In fact, the trend for meticulous eyebrow shaping came into the beating sphere just a few years ago, giving birth to thousands of brow studios of all sizes. However, you must admit that it is very difficult to find your own master who will understand your desires from a half-word, especially when it comes to the desired shade of eyebrows.
In addition, many people still prefer self-staining. It is even more difficult to achieve a beautiful color at home, because craftsmen often mix several shades to find the one for you.
As you can imagine, unsuccessful staining can occur in any conditions. Especially for this, the brow-masters have professional washes and removers, thanks to which you can quickly correct the situation.
But let's be honest: at least once did you dare to say right away that you were dissatisfied with something? Or did she instantly realize that she was not inspired by the result? That is why most of the time it is up to us to fix the problem. And there is no question of any special means.
The first thing you want to do when you see very dark eyebrows is to try rubbing them off. But what if it works out? Something really can turn out, only the hairs from such abrupt movements can break off or fall out, and the delicate skin turns red and even becomes inflamed.
If you still intend to independently eliminate the negative consequences of staining, adopt safe methods. Of course, they will take time and some effort, because a good paint will have an effect for at least a few weeks.
Start with butter
Yes, browsers advise you to treat your eyebrows daily with oil in order to maintain the result. But in fact, oil can eliminate the negative consequences! And any bottle from your kitchen is suitable for these purposes. Apply a generous amount of vegetable oil to the brow area and wait 15–20 minutes. After that, gently wipe your eyebrows with a cotton pad. Repeat the procedure a couple of times and you will notice how the shade of the eyebrows begins to change.
As we said above, trying to wipe off an unsuccessful shade is quite a traumatic undertaking. But if you still can't get rid of the desire to erase it from your face, try less aggressive methods. For example, a gentle scrub, but only if the skin is not very red after removing the hairs!
If your skin is too sensitive, it is better to do without a scrub altogether. You can try rubbing your brows gently with a toothbrush - with cleanser or regular soap. If you are the lucky owner of an electric toothbrush, feel free to take it. The result will be even better and safer - the gadget will do everything for you, and you will not harm your skin with sudden movements.
Do not use chemicals
On the Internet, you can find many tips for removing unsuccessful staining with lemon juice, ammonia, or hydrogen peroxide. Of course, these methods are partly effective, but very dangerous for the skin, which has already survived trauma during the removal of excess hairs. Overdoing it with the active ingredients, you can provoke inflammation and flaking. Better your unfortunate eyebrows next to redness will definitely not look!
Instead of such killer substances, some advise making lotions from a decoction of chamomile. If you are not too lazy and apply them for a couple of days, the eyebrows will become lighter by 1-2 shades.
For a more powerful result, try making a soda mask. Mix baking soda with shampoo and apply the resulting gruel to the hairs for about half an hour. The shade promises to get better!
Alas, there are simply no instant ways to self-correct unsuccessful staining. It is correct to immediately talk about your dissatisfaction with the browmaster in order to correct the shade with professional means. And for lovers of home procedures, we advise you to choose the best one from the methods described by us. Some of them will definitely seem more perfect to you than the rest!
