You see I grew up with hideously bushy brows, they were very thick and had little shape to them.
Looking back at photos of my teenage self, which by the way I won't be sharing not even for comedy value purposes, sorry! They looked a little like furry slugs above my eyes.
Needless to say I hated them which of course led to some serious over plucking with the tweezers, which to be honest now I see pictures of both I'm not sure which looked worse.
But I think over the past few years I've reached a happy medium with my brows they are neither bushy nor stick thin all thanks to some great beauticians and a lot of threading.
Eyebrow shaping and grooming is a step I NEVER miss in my morning face routine and as a result I've tried and tested many, many products over the years in the pursuit of beautiful brows.
Suqqu's liquid pen is my latest brow buy. Beauty buzz around this little stick has meant it's been sold out for some time and is still hard to get hold of after celeb make-up artist and YT guru Lisa Eldridge sang it's praises in her videos.
Luckily I got my hands on one a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I did.
The Suqqu pen creates brow perfection with it's subtle liquid formula which seamlessly tints the areas you apply it to leaving a very natural unified effect between skin and hair.
Sometimes with waxes, powder, gel or pencils it can be a little obvious where you've filled in the gaps and the product is noticeable next to the hairs.
With liquid this doesn't happen, once the product is dry it subtly tints the skin instead of sitting on top of it and mixing with the hairs.
The tiny brush applies the tint lightly where needed and can be built up easily in colour, thickness or texture. The pen comes in three shades, I use number two, brown.
After an accident with a hair trimmer (never again) the front of my brows have been left a little gappy, also they aren't as long at the outer corners as they should be.
The Suqqu pen is a great way to easily fill in these small problem areas and instantly enables me to get the brows I should have been born with!
As you can see they are much better but don't look too heavy or overdone as some other brow products tend to do, just subtley enhanced.
It gives a very similar effect to having them tinted in a salon which I like to have done every so often, it allows me to have perfect brows for about ten days or so before it fades.
The Suqqu pen is a nice way to get that look but obviously at home.
If the liquid is wet it can be corrected but once it dries after about 5 seconds or so it won't budge which I love.
It gives lasting perfection all day which can't always be said for gels, waxes, powders or pencils that tend to come off if you touch them throughout the day.
All in all I really like the Suqqu pen it's a lovely way to get the natural looking brows you've always wanted instantly that last all day long.
It is a little pricey at £20 but I would say well worth it if you crave perfect brows and filling in is part of your daily routine. It's much more natural and better lasting than other brow products a definite must try for those of us not blessed with beautiful brows!
