The Blonde Brow Struggle Is Over!

Make Up Forever Aqua Brow

Well at least for me!
Sorry to brag but I have struggled with my brows for as long as I have bothered to fill them, if anyone is keeping track that is around three years. Yeah I was a late bloomer in the brow world, truth be told they are not my beauty priority - put it this way if I have a long fringe chances are my brows are naked ha! Anyway after disregarding more brow products than is really healthy I have finally found the brow product for my super light brows. Enter Make Up Forever Aqua Brow in the shade 10 (Light Blonde).

I won't pretend for one moment that Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is all that easy to source in the UK nor is it super cheap, but it is worth seeking out and splurging if you are in a similar predicament to myself. Another issue is that Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is not the easiest product to use but again the extra effort really pays off. Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is a light, gel come cream texture that is best applied with a stiff, angled brush. If you are used to the likes of Anastasia Brow Wiz Pomade you will be able to get to grips with Aqua Brow fairly easily, my advice is less is more (to the extreme, literally the tiniest blob is enough for both brows) and work against the brow hair rather than with it. For the first few uses I recommend trying Aqua Brow out when you have no where to be - or at least in a hurry anyway. The main problems with Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is that it is so pigmented and sets super quickly - in a nutshell trial and error. On the plus side once you get to grips with the formulation is that it looks super natural, can be built up for a more dramatic effect. I also rather like that you can "draw" on individual hairs - great if like myself you have naturally sparse brows.

So on to the shade - 10 Light Blonde, a cool toned somewhat ashy brown that has just enough warmth to prevent the shade from looking grey. Those with light brows will know how tricky it is to get the balance just right - too warm and my brows look orange, too cool in tone and my brows look grey and ages me by around 20 years. Sure you can somewhat build and blend just about every brow product out there but not many (or any in my case) look as natural as Aqua Brow not do they last the pace of the day. Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is completely waterproof once set - not even the heaviest downpour can budge this baby and despite being so long wearing (10 hours with ease on my oily skin) it does not set stiff - rather it has a light, soft almost powder finish. If ever there was a brow product I can get behind it is Make Up Forever Aqua Brow. Worth every single penny in my opinion.

As mentioned Make Up Forever Aqua Brow is not all that easy to source so I have included a few options:
Make Up Forever Aqua Brow $20 via Sephora - link.
Make Up Forever Aqua Brow £16.75 via Guru Make Up Emporium - link.

  1. Even though I have medium blonde hair and prefer to go a shade or two darker in the brow department, getting the ashy undertones right is so, so hard. This product has the exact tone, but I feel it would be a little light on me. I definitely need to check out the line though, I'm sure they have something that suits.

  2. I've got dark blonde hair but very fair brows that are very sparse. I didn't really mind too much since I could comb and go but in the last year or two if you don't have perfectly manicured eyebrows there seems to be some sort of consensus that you've got a problem! I have tried SO many products but none have been good so I'm definitely going to try this on your recommendation, thank you!
