This Duo Will Give You a Laminated Brow Finish Without Going to the Salon
February 18, 2021
Brow lamination, a process that lifts the brow hairs upwards, is all the rage. But if you’re still hesitant to head to the salon due to COVID-19, or want to try the look without the commitment, we’re happy to report that NYX Professional Makeup has made this possible with a new brow duo. Cue: the Lift and Snatch Brow Tint Pen and The Brow Glue Instant Brow Styler. Used together, these two brow products will actually give you the look of lifted, tamed and laminated brows without the permanency or an IRL salon visit. Ahead, we tapped NYX Pro Makeup Artist Autumn White for a step by step tutorial on how to get the look.
STEP 1: Apply the Brow Glue
The first step to getting your laminated brow look at home is applying the Brow Glue. “Apply the glue against the grain of your brow hairs to ensure that all hairs are evenly coated,” says White. When every hair is “glued” in place, press the round bristle brush flat to the skin and brush your hairs in the direction you want them to lay. For a laminated look, you’ll want to brush your hairs out and up. “This magic application will ensure your brows are clump free and lifted all day,” she says.
STEP 2: Fill in the Gaps
Once your hairs are set, it’s time to fill in any sparse areas with the Lift and Snatch Brow Tint Pen. White recommends to use light pressure and quick flicks when applying the tint, so that your strokes will look like micro-hairs.
STEP 3: Wear Your Laminated Look for Hours
Both the brow tint and glue are long-wearing, so you won’t have to worry about the color slipping or smudging throughout the day. Better yet, the brow glue will dry down clear and won’t feel sticky or flakey. Laminated brows, here we come.
