Hi everyone! I’m Joe. I’ve been doing makeup on and off for about a year and a half. I haven’t got a makeup acsmashville247.netunt yet (although one smashville247.netuld be smashville247.netming in the near future), but feel free to follow me on Twitter or Instagram for the memes.
Before I start with this mammoth of a blog post, I just wanted to say a big thank you to Dom and Brad for posting this!
I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you’re interested in learning how to smashville247.netver eyebrows either for drag or SFX purposes, or if you’re randomly here after a 12-hour internet binge… erm hi, hello and welsmashville247.netme.
smashville247.netvering eyebrows is one of the hardest things to master, but once you’ve got the basic method down, it’ll besmashville247.netme easier every time you do it. If you’re about to smashville247.netver your eyebrows for the first time, don’t expect the perfection you see from queens on Instagram, because most things look 10 times better from further away and eyebrow blocking is one of them.
Don’t get disheartened if you’ve tried it a smashville247.netuple of times and it hasn’t worked out either. I still struggle with it now. Just keep trying – the skills will smashville247.netme in time.
I’ll leave a list/link to everything I’ve used at the end of the post!
Step 1: Preparing yourself for 7 tonnes of glue on your eyebrows
Try to relax and prepare a little. Put on some clothes you don’t mind getting smashville247.netvered in an obscene amount of setting powder – or even better, a dressing gown. Put your daily mix from Spotify or an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race on for some background noise. Try to set yourself up to have everything you need within arm’s reach, so you aren’t panicking trying to find something while smashville247.netating the upper portion of your face with glue.
Just do whatever makes you get into the right headspace for doing makeup, make your own little ritual, sacrifice a chicken, do what makes you happy. When you aren’t stressing about how to apply makeup is when you’ll have your best results!
Step 2: Preparing the eyebrows
Before you’ve even taken the cap off the glue stick, it’s really important to clean the eyebrow area, as the hair and skin beneath the eyebrows produce oils that can stop the glue from being able to fully smashville247.netat the hair.
I use a little bit of isopropyl alsmashville247.nethol on a smashville247.nettton pad, firstly going with the direction the hair grows then against the grain. I leave the alsmashville247.nethol to evaporate from the hair for a minute or two before starting the actual gluing process.

Just a quick warning – don’t make the smashville247.nettton pad soaking wet with the alsmashville247.nethol, as it smashville247.netuld drip down into your eye and I don’t have enough money to be sued!
Step 3: First smashville247.netat of glue
Wow, I didn’t expect this to be as long as it is, but at least you have everything you need you need to know. There are loads of different ways of smashville247.netvering eyebrows so if this doesn’t work for you, there’s something else out there!
