These Products Help You Master the "Laminated Brow" Trend at Home and on a Budget
Bold eyebrows have been trending for years, but it was only recently that a handful of services and DIY tricks have surfaced to master the feathered look that's all over Instagram. While some people prefer professional and long-term results (see: brow lamination, which requires perming your brow hairs, or "microfeathering" that's essentially a new and very LA approach to microblading), others rely on a bar of soap to get the brushed-up and bushy effect. In other words, it can feel like there are a lot of hoops to jump through to simply get the kind of arches you've been lusting after.
Lucky for you, you don't have to do any of that (if you don't want to). In fact, we've found the affordable tools that can create the bold effect you're looking for without any of the fuss. Think: glossy brow gels, balmy pencils that lock hairs in place for hours, and microfine pencils that fill in every gap with natural hair-like lines. As an added bonus, not one product is more than $5, and considering how expensive some brow services are — and how unnecessary it may feel to buy soap in bulk to only use a fraction of the bar — this is a huge win.
