I'm using eyelure pomade with a little angled brush and I have to remove it with a hot cloth cleanser at night. It stays on in the shower if I'm not thorough! I'm blonde with quite light brows so it really notices if it rubs off.
Another vote for Wunderbrow here. Stays on all day. It’s a gel rather than a pencil so takes a little practice but there are lots of videos online. Check it out on Amazon, there’s lots of good reviews and pics on there.
I use a brow pencil (sleek) that stays all day on my oily skin and prone to hot sweats sometimes hot face. I find that a careful prep of the skin makes all the difference regarding the longevity of my brows.
I apply my primer all over. Then apply my foundation (and concealer). Next, I press a setting powder under my eyes, onto my eyelids, over my brows, and also onto my t zone. I use a damp beauty blender, or a velour puff, and really press it in. My preference is silica setting powders, in particular innisfree no sebum powder, etude house zero sebum powder, rcma no colour powder - but most translucent powders will do. I then brush off the excess gently. This leaves my brows and the surrounding area a smooth canvas, ready for eyeliner, eyeshadow and brow pencil/gel/pomade. I then take the same soft angled brush, and ever so gently sweep over the brow and eye area to set it all after all eye and brow make up is finished. The little powder left on the brush is all that's needed.
I was using a reaaly great, thick waxy pencil from Kiko which came in just the right shade of mid sludge brown for my brows and stayed put all day but now they have discontinued it, sob! Lots of other products are either too dark or too full on for me so I will be reading with interest.
I bought this from amazon. £1.89 and 80p p+p ROPALIA Perfect Eyebrows in 2 Mins Eyebrow Gel +Brush Eyebrow Tint Dye The brush is super thin for drawing straight/angled lines. The product stays on all day, doesn't dry kakey or flakey. It also doesn't dye your brows or stain your skin. Can easily be wiped off. You only need the smallest amount to do both brows, so this will last for ages.
