Bleaching my eyebrows

True confessions: I bleach my eyebrows.  They are naturally very black and very arched, which at times can look a bit severe, kind of like this:

romulan eyebrows

So I bleach them sometimes.

The bleach comes in a kit. There is a powder, a goopy paste, a flat mini-tray and a spatula. I mix one part powder to about 4 parts goop.

It has to be mixed very well or else I could end up with spotty or tiger striped eyebrows. Tiger brows are not the look.

After pulling my hair back, I smear the paste on my eyebrows.

Since I’m doing this, might as well bleach my annoying forehead hair and my mustache. I’ve gotten my forehead hair threaded before and OUCH. No thanks. I’ll bleach it.

Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?

After about 7 minutes, I wipe some of the bleach off to see how much my brows are lightened.

Seems good enough. I proceed to wipe off all of the bleach with a dry rag, followed by a wet rag.

Kiki is about to yawn. Mama’s vanity rituals are so BORING.

The final result: Before, my brows are their natural black.

I can still look just as nutty without Romulan/Vulcan eyebrows! YES!
