Our neighbours at Browjam, a Dundee based makeup artistry brand, have brought out the ultimate professional brow kit to use at home.
Founder Janine Onyiuke established Browjam in 2013. Both the brand and products were born out of frustration of the current products available and because the techniques were fixed they didn’t allow any flexibility or creativity. She quickly learned that although there are trends, there is no one size fits all. This is what ignited her journey to develop Browjam, which is about products, artistry, techniques, people and trends.
Here, I tested out the brow pomade (in Dirty Blonde), magic brush and dual brow pencil!
The Before Picture:
The After Picture:
As you can see, I started out with fair eyebrows with very little shape. First off, I used the wand end of the brush to tame the stray hairs and create a neat canvas for the pomade, then used the angled brush end to apply the pomade, which went on suprisingly smoothly compared with ther cream-based brow products I've tried in the past which tend to go hard very quickly. Next, I used the concealer side of the pencil to neaten the shape above and below, then the highlighter to lift the arch.
The brush and pomade are excellent, but the pencil not so much; the concealer was a little too orange for my skin tone, (but that can be a risk for any pale person getting beauty products online) and the highlighter was pretty much my same skin colour, therefore added very little extra definition or glow. However, I think the overall results are great, my brows look bolder as they were easy to fill in, but not so dark that it looks unnatural with my blonde hair, and the shape is much more defined. I was also impressed with the simple, stylish packaging and branding of BrowJam, and the products themselves are really high-quality for the price you pay.
