THE SKINNY BROW’S FOE—AND ITS NEW BEST FRIENDS.
Now that full eyebrows are here to stay, microblading—the process of making little cuts to the brow and filling them with semipermanent pigment to mimic the look of eyebrow hair—is on the rise. But results can vary—widely—and some people report that microblading can make brows blurry and cause irritation over time. (Dominique Bossavy, a tattoo artist renowned for semipermanent makeup, says that she has had to correct 30 cases in the last year.) A temporary alternative can be found in the cosmetics aisle, home to pencils, waxes, and powders. New formulas from Make Up For Ever, Physicians Formula, and Maybelline use tiny fibers to bulk up the brow and tinted gels to precisely fill spotty areas.
