It wasn’t that long ago that the only brow look we were looking for was Cara Delevingne’s full, bushy brows. Discover a range of products that promised us just that – Glossier Boy Brow, Benefit Gimme Brow. However, today we are trying to imitate the effect of eyebrow lamination.
Brow lamination uses a chemical solution to lift and straighten the brows. The effect of well-groomed eyebrows lasts for about six weeks. However, not everyone has time to order treatment. Luckily, Isamaya Ffrench, one of the leading makeup artists in the field, has just launched her makeup range with a brow tool that gives a laminated look.
“The light brow gel was a great addition to that first drop,” says Ffrench. “To keep the face well-groomed, clean and fresh.” It provides a brow lamination effect and comes with a mini comb to help you get into the product, comb the hairs and smooth them with the back of the comb.
Unlike clear brow mascaras that enhance your brows, this brow product is a fine-tooth comb that glides over your brows and separates individual hairs for a post-lamination look.

Beauty Editor’s Verdict:
I am totally obsessed with the look of laminated brows. The bigger the better I say. And I think this little cup of joy might just be the next best thing to real therapy. A little bit of product goes a long way, so when you consider that a brow lamination procedure can cost between £60 and £100, brow gel will last you a long time. The staying power is also incredible. I apply it in the morning, and the eyebrows last until the evening. I will say that it takes practice to know how much to put on, but once you do, your brows will thank you. I have really light hair, so every now and then I’ll fill in my brows first to highlight them and then add a laminating agent. Overall, I’m totally hooked.
