K-pop makeup is the hottest trend right now, but there’s a secret that’s not getting enough attention: those stunningly bleached brows! Many K-pop idols embrace these lightened brows, even if they have naturally dark hair.

It’s not just about looks; it’s a trick to make you look softer and younger. And guess what? It can even make your face seem shorter by playing with your visual perception.

To help you master this K-pop secret, let’s break down a tutorial from TikTok creator, @l_yuhann, who spills the beans on how she transforms her dark brows into those coveted soft K-pop brows.

Step 1: Brow Shaping

First things first, make sure the beginning of your brow lines up with the inside corner of your eye and your nose’s side. Gently use a facial razor to clean up this area.


If you’re going for those straight brows, tidy up the lower part of your eyebrows.


Step 2: Brow Trim for Refinement

If your brows are looking a bit too long or droopy, they need a little trim to shape up!droopy-brows

Use a spooly tool to brush your brows upward, and then trim those stray hairs. Brush them downward and trim again.


Ta-da! Your brows will look clean and well-defined.


Step 3: Brow Bleaching

Mix one part of the bleach powder with two parts of the cream.


Apply this mixture to your brows and follow the time guidelines on the product’s instructions. Generally, the longer you leave it on, the lighter your brows will become.


After a few minutes, gently wipe off the bleach with a facial wipe.


That’s it! Now, you can stick to your usual brow routine, but you’ll see the difference for yourself.

In the side-by-side comparison, you’ll notice that with the same products and the same brow shape, the bleached side gives her that soft, youthful look and even makes her face seem shorter!
