How to Keep Brows in Place Without Gel

4 Mins read

If you have ever been in a situation where you wished you had something to keep your brows in place (without gel), then this post is for you.

How to keep brows in place without gel – using Vaseline

If you want to keep your eyebrows in place, but don’t want to use gel, here are some tips:

  • Apply a small amount of Vaseline to the spoolie of a mascara brush (or any soft-bristled brush).
  • Brush through your brows with the Vaseline until they’re coated thoroughly, letting it dry for several minutes first if time permits.
  • This will prevent smearing when you apply makeup over it later and make cleanup easier as well—just wipe away any excess with a tissue!

How to keep brows in place without gel – using water and a brush

  • Soak your angled brush in water for about 10 seconds. This will make the brush more flexible and help you apply the gel more easily.
  • Dampen your brows with a spray bottle, or dampen your dry spoolie with a cotton pad dipped in water and gently wipe over your brows until they are wet.
  • If you have any other tools (like powder puffs or stencils), feel free to use them as well!
  • Apply Anastasia Eyebrow Gel with an angled brush (like a detail brush) by holding it at an angle of 90 degrees from your face, then drawing small strokes upwards towards where you want the arch of your brows to be.
  • You don’t need much product at all; the key here is using very light strokes and just barely coating each hair strand rather than trying to paint on too much product all at once!

How to keep brows in place without gel – using wax or pomade

If you’d rather not use gel, there are other options.

For example, wax and pomade can help to keep your eyebrows in place.

These products work by hardening the hairs on your brows so that they stay put for longer (but don’t expect them to make your brows stick straight up).

They can be used sparingly with a brush or comb to apply them onto individual hairs of each eyebrow individually.

How to keep brows in place without gel – using hairspray and powder

  • If you find that your brows are falling out of place after a few hours, try using a setting spray or hair spray to hold them in place.
  • Set it with powder and brush up through your brows, then let set for a few minutes before brushing down again. This trick works best if you’re going for a natural look.
  • Another option is to use hairspray on both the top and bottom of your brow hairs so they stick together when applied with light pressure from an angled brush (and don’t forget about those little spiky bits in between!).
  • You can also try extending this technique by adding more coats until the product dries completely, which will give you more time before needing another layer!

How to keep brows in place without gel – using heat (curling iron or blow dryer)

If you don’t want to use gel, but still have your brows stay in place all day, try one of these options:

  • Use a comb or brush to apply hairspray in the direction of growth. Then set with heat from a blow dryer or flat iron.
  • Spray hairspray onto clean dry hair and use a curling iron on low heat for about 10 seconds per section of hair.
  • Repeat this process until all sections are curled. After that, spritz each strand with more hairspray to lock them into place!

How to keep brows in place without gel – using stencils or templates

If you’re feeling too lazy to use gel, there are other ways to keep your brows in place.

You can draw them on with a pencil and then fill in the shape with makeup.

This is a great way to get started if you’re just getting into makeup and want to experiment with different looks before jumping into something more complicated like stencils or templates.

Stencils and templates offer an easy way for beginners to practice drawing their brows freehand before committing themselves to do so on their actual faces.

They are also convenient because they come in different shapes and sizes, so it’s easy for everyone from teens who need thick eyebrows up to women who simply want fuller ones (or thicker ones) without sacrificing thinness or delicateness altogether!

How to keep brows in place without gel – using hairspray with a comb or brush

If you want to keep your brows in place without using gel, try hairspray.

It’s not as effective as a brush or comb with gel, but it does work.

To use hairspray as an alternative to Anastasia Eyebrow Gel:

  • Hold the can about six inches from your face and spray a light mist over your eyebrows in an upward direction.
  • Don’t go overboard—you don’t want too much product on there!
  • Let the mist dry completely before touching your brows with either a comb or brush (if you’ve been applying it with one of these tools).

Final Thoughts

Hopefully, we’ve given you some useful tips on how to keep your brows in place without gel.

If you want to try out these methods for yourself, remember to keep a close eye on your brows so they don’t become too stiff or clumpy.

And if that happens?

No worries—just remove the excess product with a makeup wipe or cotton pad before applying more coats!
