Did you know that it is possible to sweat your eyebrows off? Or, at least it’s possible to sweat your eyebrows off if you’ve over-plucked them as a teenager and now have less eyebrow, more cleverly placed brow product. Oh, bother!
Thankfully, Make Up Forever have stood up and taken notice of the plight of girls-on-the-go worldwide. Introducing, the “Aqua Brown” waterproof eyebrow corrector. Yes, you heard me. WATERPROOF! This means that you can finally have eyebrows at the gym, at the pool and even at the beach. Finally!
Make Up Forever’s “Aqua Brow” is a gel formula which promises to enable the user to fill, define and lengthen brows. It’s long-lasting, smudge proof and absolutely waterproof – which particularly good news to anyone forced to experience “Irish weather” on a daily basis. The formula is a combination of volatile oil and carnauba oil which allow for smooth, even application.
Now, it took me a trail run or two to perfect the application process associated with this product. In order to do so, I’ve been using the following steps:
- Apply a small amount of “Aqua Brow” on the back of your hand or a spatula.
- Using the angled brush, start at the arch of the brow and trace down to the tail. Then
connect the base of the brow to the arch.
- To fill in a gap, dot a small amount of product on to the skin with the tip of the slanted brush, then work it outwards using the full width of the brush.
- Use the spiral brush to comb through and soften.
In my opinion, the most important step is number 4. It is necessary to comb the brows through really thoroughly with a spiral brush in order to achieve a natural look. I absolutely detest really obvious brow pencilling so this product allows me to avoid the harsh lines that set my nerves on edge.
Apparently, this product can also be used as a tint for grey hair, moustaches and sideburns so, beware of your Dad “borrowing” it from your make-up collection. All in all, I think that this is a great product. It’s quick and easy to use with a pretty expansive shade range – even suitable for us “ginga ninjas”. At the moment, I’m using shade number 20 “Light Brown” and it’s a pretty spot-on colour match with my natural brows.
“Aqua Brow” retails at €20 and is available from makeupforever.ie. What do you think? Are you a pencil or gel kind of brow gal?
