Bold brows are still big in the beauty world, but for 2016 we’re seeing a trend toward feathered, more natural looking arches. So this month we decided to bring you an innovative product that fills out your brows - and lasts the day! Yep, the hard brow work you put in each morning won't fade (or slide down your face!) by 4pm.
Enter Monomola’s Brow Pen! A tattoo style product designed to last on your skin. Apply it on clean skin before bed, and allow the colour to set overnight for the ultimate staying power. Here’s our tips for applying your brow pen:
Be careful applying the product as it is a stain. If you do make a mistake, remove it immediately with a cleanser before it dries
Use the very tip of the pen and apply using small featherlike strokes to give the illusion of hair in the brow. Feather touch tattooing is very on trend at the moment, brows are looking more natural and full rather than drawn on
Worry, it’s not permanent! We have tested it, and although we didn’t get 7 days of fierce brows, it is a long lasting product and you should get 24 hrs of wear
You can also use this wonder pen as a normal brow product over makeup, however results won’t be as long lasting. The colours you will receive are black and brown. We found that the black wasn’t as dark as expected, however Australia’s Arch Angel, Amy Jean of Amy Jean Eye Couture recommends using a shade lighter than your brow to give a fuller, more natural look.
To apply it:
Place the pen along the side of your nose to find where your brows should start
Then to find the highest point of your arch, place the pen parallel to the outside corner of your iris
Angle the pen from the outside of your nose to the outer corner of your eye to find where your brows should finish
Using short dash-like strokes to mimic your natural hairs, lightly fill in any sparse areas with the pen
Brush through brows with a spoolie to blend out the colour and soften any harsh lines
