Kris Aquino said it best: “Buhay ka na basta may kilay ka (You will live as long as you have brows.)” In this heat, brows are perhaps the first to melt off. What’s the point of going on then if they can’t last the whole day?
Good thing waterproof formulations are out there. They assure that your brows are still alive despite a long day. As much as brows are important, no one has time to touch them up on-the-go. What you need is a product that you don’t have to worry about once you put it on. What we’ve put together are items that fulfill that very need.
Too Faced Brow Quickie Brush-On Waterproof Brow Fiber Gel
If you’re a low-maintenance type when it comes to your brows, a few sweeps of this gel would do you well. It promises 12-hour wear as each fiber adheres to your existing brows, making them fuller while you brush them in place. Available via Sephora PH.
Nudestix Eyebrow Stylus
This 2-in-1 waterproof item has gel on one end and a pencil on the other. The texture of the pencil isn’t too creamy so you can draw your brows with control. The gel, on the other hand, promises a strong hold that will tame unruly eyebrows. Available via SephoraPH.
Make Up Forever Aqua Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector
Beauty vlogger Claire Marshall says that this corrector lasts so well, it’s the reason why she has full perfect brows even at the gym. Yes, At. The. Gym. You’d have to be quite skilled with an angle brush to draw on your desired strands with this one, however. But hey, don’t they say no pain, no gain? Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall.
NYX Proof It! Waterproof Brow Primer
If you don’t want to switch from your powder brow product just yet, give them an upgrade with this primer. Brush this through your brows first so you can give the powder something to stick to the whole day. Plus, the formulation of this helps promote brow growth to help those with naturally-sparse hairs. Available online.
Laura Mercier Brow Definer
A waxy formula that dries to a strong hold finish, the product lasts for a long time.This is why Total Beauty included it in its list of 21 best eyebrow products. The product is also a good investment as you get a lot of product in the pot to make sure you’re covered even if you do your brows every single day. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source, Glorietta 3.
