‘Microfilling’ is the latest brow trend experts are lauding for its ability to rival microblading.
Microblading has quickly become one of the most popular beauty treatments available thanks to its ability to provide definition and fullness where brows are naturally lacking and shave hours off your daily makeup routine.
The actual technique of implanting pigment into fine incisions in the skin goes back thousands of years, but gained popularity for being used on eyebrows in Asia, with the feathering or embroidery trend. Later known as microblading, it’s essentially tattooing, but it involves using a specialised and more delicate manual hand tool.
With close contact beauty treatments, such as brow appointments, on hold for the foreseeable (damn you, Boris), many of us are turning to at-home beautifying.
If you’ve tried shaping, tinting, waxing and threading your brows at home and they’re still not living up to professional standards, a new brow trend might help you achieve the salon look at home.
Obviously with salons closed, microblading isn’t an option right now, which is why we’re jumping aboard the microfilling trend.
As Lauretta Power, Benefit National Brow Artist, explains: “Microfilling helps you get the look of microbladed brows without the commitment. The trend involves using a three-pronged pen (which we have just launched) that adheres to both the skin and the brow hairs. It will give you the most incredible lifelike brows where you have none, or build up where you are sparse to fill in all those gaps and add volume. The most flattering thing about the look is that whatever brow style you have, it will enhance by giving a more realistic look and is easy for everyone to achieve.”
It’s handy, then, that Benefit has unveiled a £22.50 Microfilling Brow Pen to help beauty buffs achieve the look at home.
The new brow pen has a custom 3 prong tip that creates the illusion of natural brow hairs. Designed to blend in with existing hairs, the formula adheres to skin and hair by instantly filling in gaps to create the illusion of brow hairs. Your brows will apparently last 24 hours.
An impressive 96 per cent of the women who tried the new product said it made their natural eyebrows look thicker, with many dubbing it a ‘miracle’ product.
We can’t wait to try it out when it launches on 14th August 2020.
