The eyebrows are having their moment in the makeup world. While the attention used to fall on a sculpted contour or a perfectly lined wing, for many, a good set of brows are now the star of the show. It makes sense then that as a result, the assortment of brow products is expanding and improving. Enter: the eyebrow gel. How to use eyebrow gel is relatively quick and easy, and instantly seals the hairs into a lifted, groomed shape. It's no wonder then that this product is the new must-have for the perfect set.

The different ways how to use eyebrow gel

Eyebrow gel can be a versatile tool. There are three main ways how you can use it.

  1. Comb troublesome hairs into place
  2. Create an entirely new style for your brows
  3. As a conditioning treatment*

*Eyeko's gels contain ginkgo Biloba, Keratin, and Proteins to leave eyebrows feeling nourished and healthier.

As well as this, the various ways how to use an eyebrow gel vary depending on whether or not the formula has a tint. For those looking to darken their brows, a tinted eyebrow gel can add instant colour and definition. Meanwhile, a clear brow gel can help to disperse any pencil fill-ins throughout the brow for a more natural finish.

A more alternative way how to use eyebrow gel, however, is to tidy up your spillages. We've all been in that situation where our mascara wand ventures past the lashes, causing an array of black dots on our eyelid. A clear brow gel can be the perfect, unsuspecting solution to this. Simply wait for the smudge to dry and swipe the clear gel across to seamlessly lift the mascara residue from the lid.

How to achieve the 'brushed up eyebrows' look

How to use eyebrow gel to achieve a certain style depends on the look you are going for. For example, for straight brows, simply comb the hairs repeatedly in the direction of the temple and fill in any gaps with the Define It Brow Pencil where needed.

Another look that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon is the brushed up eyebrows. For the brushed up eyebrows look, the key is to ensure that all sides of each individual hair are covered in the conditioning gel. To do this, first brush all of the hair downwards. This may seem counterproductive advice, but it's our secret tip to ensuring those brows stay firmly put all day. Follow this step with brushing upwards. Having done this, each hair will be entirely coated in the brow gel for lasting sticking power.

The brushed up eyebrows look makes it effortlessly simple to fill in any sparse patches without going overboard. Once the brows have been sealed into place, use the Define It Brow Pencilto make tiny, hair-like strokes with its precision tip. The perfect accompaniment to Brow Gel, this brow pencil mimics how your natural eyebrow hairs would look.

Can I brush my eyebrows after lamination?

A common way that people achieve the 'brushed up eyebrows' look is with brow lamination. This is like a perm for your eyebrows, setting the hairs into place with a chemical solution that lasts for about six to eight weeks.

Following this, many ask "can I brush my eyebrows after lamination?" The protocol following the chemical solution is the following: For the first 24 hours, you should avoid pulling and tugging at the hairs as much as possible. However, once that time has passed, consider yourself free to brush your eyebrows after lamination. In fact, is actually encouraged to help keep the hairs in place for as long as possible.

Do you put eyebrow gel on before or after makeup?

Finally, do you put eyebrow gel on before or after makeup? As eyebrow gel is one of the most versatile makeup products there is, this one is entirely up to you. You can gel the hairs into place before applying makeup and follow up with filling in any sparse areas with a brow pencil. Alternatively, you can gel any stray hairs into place as a finishing touch once everything is finished.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways how to use eyebrow gel.
