Every cosplayer knows this hassle all to well. You have a character that you either need to make your eyebrows a different color or they need to be a different shape entirely. So what do you have to do? Yup, cover your eyebrows.
There are many ways you can do this. Thus, the making of several different YouTube videos and other kinds of tutorials out there. But, none of them have actually worked, at least not for me. So, I have created a easy and simple way to cover those little annoying buggers and I’m here to share it with you.
Step One. Clean your face and tie your hair back.
Without this step, the cover up is gonna crack and get all gross, so I highly suggest this at the beginning. It will make a much smoother process
Step Two. Apply the glue stick to both of your eyebrows.
I like to use Elmers Craft Glue stick because it’s really easy to take off but you can use any brand of a glue stick. Just make sure it’s craft glue else that stuff is never coming off. Also apply the glue in the opposite direction that your hair grows. That way it will be easier to apply the cover up. And make sure you have a thick layer of glue on. If you can’t feel your eyebrows, your good!
Step Three. Dab on the concealer.
After the glue has dried, you’ll want to put the concealer on now. I suggest finding a concealer that matches well with your skin. Else, you’ll find that the end result will stand out and not look the best–trust me on this one guys, I speak from experience. Also, make sure you go with the grain in gentle strokes on your eyebrows so you don’t tear off the glue
Step Four. Blend!
This is probably the most important step in the whole process. Blending the concealer in gently with either a makeup brush or a sponge. Again you’ll want to go with the grain of your eyebrows so you don’t rip any of the glue. Make sure that the concealer looks as natural as possible. The more natural, the less you’ll see your original eyebrows.
After all of that, your eyebrows should be completely concealed. You’re now free to do what you want with them. Make them a different color, shape or even rock it Garra style and go no eyebrows.
