What Is A Brow Stamp?
A brow stamp is what it sounds like. It’s a stamp that you put over the eyes where the brow should be on the skin. It’s an option for those who don’t have eyebrows or who want a fuller look after waxing or plucking the brows. There are a few benefits to the brow stamp that you might not be able to get with eyebrow makeup.
Benefits Of The Brow Stamp
One of the noted benefits of this design is that it doesn’t tend to fade away or rub off like makeup would. The eyebrow is created with a stamp that is similar to what you would have if you were making a stamp on a piece of paper. It’s a way to give perfectly shaped and placed brows as you can easily adjust where the stamp is placed compared to using makeup that might smear while putting it on the eyes. The stamp will often last the entire day as long as you don’t rub at the eyes on a regular basis.
There is a sponge with the stamp that is used to create the design. You also have powder that is used to fill in the eyebrow design that is stamped. The sponge is gently dabbed onto the skin to give the look that is desired. There are a few different sponge designs to choose from depending on how you want the brows to look. You can create an arched design or one that is thin and detailed. Some of the brow stamps have intricate details that you simply can’t get with makeup.
The stamp is easier than using a pencil as all you have to do is press the sponge against the skin. Once it’s in the right spot, you firmly press down until the shape is present. It’s easy to wash away the stamp to create another design if you have time to play with the different techniques that are available. You do want to dampen the sponge a bit so that the powder that is used will adhere a bit better to the sponge before it’s put on the skin. There are different shades of the powder available with the stamp. The shapes that are created are even in their design, which is an added benefit compared to the makeup that you might use with a pencil or a brush.
Some people even do their own brow stamps, like this user on reddit:
