Choosing the Best Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil for You

Emily LaCroix

A waterproof eyebrow pencil is an essential in any beauty bag. Whether you’re hitting the beach, going for a swim, or simply prefer waterproof products for their long-lasting power, it’s great to have the option to leave your eyebrow pencil on all day long without worrying about it running or smudging.

With summer coming up, there will be more opportunities to spend time in the sand, sun, and water. By choosing the best waterproof eyebrow pencil, you’re ensuring that you’re not going to have any makeup faux pas at the beach this summer. 

Choosing the perfect eyebrow pencil can prove to be difficult because there simply so many on the market. In fact, have you considered the fact that possibly the ideal eyebrow pencil isn’t a pencil at all? We’ll dive into this idea - and more - later. 

Why Are Your Eyebrows Important?

It’s not an exaggeration to say that your eyebrows are important, and this is because of the wide variety of benefits they provide the eyes. While human beings have evolved and lost most of the hair that once covered us, one place where hair remains includes the eyebrows, and with good reason! 

For one, the eyebrows are responsible for protecting the eyes from light and moisture. That means that during the summer months, it’s extra important to make sure that you’re taking care of this quadrant of your face. If you’ve ever taken a look at the eyebrow hairs on your face, you’ll notice that they’re facing toward the sides of your face. That’s because your brows are used to wicking away moisture from the eyes so you can maintain your sight. 

That being said, there are other reasons that eyebrows are useful. They provide us with valuable non-verbal cues, as we are able to understand through eyebrows if someone is, say, cynical or surprised. In addition to this, a study revealed that people are able to recognize each other largely based on their eyes.

On a beauty note, your eyebrows are what frames your face and your eyes. They can completely change your entire look—for example, if you have a full beat on but haven’t done your brows, your face is going to look unfinished. On the other hand, if you have no makeup on but have fully carved out your brows, it might look a little unfinished. It’s all a balancing act. In fact, while they might seem like an underrated feature, they’re one of the first things people notice when they look at you. If your eyebrows look amazing, people are going to notice! 

On the contrary, if your eyebrows look less than amazing, people are also going to notice. For this reason, it’s important to make sure that you’re taking care of them properly. This can mean taming them using an eyebrow brush or even trimming them (with the guidance of a specialist, of course!). 

It can also mean simply putting some Ultimate Hold Brow Gel on them, which holds the hairs in place without looking unnatural or stiff. Finally, you should also make sure the reason people aren’t looking at your eyebrows oddly is that they don’t match your hair color well. (But never fear - TatBrow can help with that, too, thanks to our wide range of shades!)

What are the Options for Best Waterproof Eyebrow Pen?

Here at TatBrow, we don’t believe in using traditional makeup pencils. Instead, we’d prefer to use a pen. Because pencils can be smudgy and overall ineffective, we’ve moved towards this model instead, and it’s working great for our adoring users. 

The two potential options for waterproof eyebrow makeup pens include the TatBrow Microblade Pen and the Micro Precision Pen. These pens, sold by TatBrow, are both extremely effective in their respective groups. First up, let’s discuss the Microblade Pen! 

Microblade Pen

The TatBrow Microblade Pen has found its way into the hearts of over one million users around the world. You heard that right - over a million people have used this very pen. While your eyebrows will look like they were microbladed, you won’t have to endure the pain - or the cost - associated with the tattoo procedure. Instead, the under $30 product leaves hair-like strokes on the skin, which allows it to look completely realistic. This product also comes in six different shades, so regardless of skin tone or hair color, there’s something for you. 

This product is unique is because it creates the appearance of bold, natural-looking eyebrows completely from scratch. That means if your eyebrows are thinning or scarred, there’s no need to worry: this product will work for you. 

In addition to that, the Microblade Pen actually has an innovative fork-esque tip on it. This actually facilitates its ability to make tiny strokes that look similar to hair. If you’re looking for a pen that truly does it all, this is the one for you. 

Micro Precision Pen

Up next is the Micro Precision Pen. This pen is painless and affordable; it’s also under the $30 mark. If you’re looking to get the look of microblading without the pain, cost, or commitment, this is the Holy Grail makeup product that you’ve been looking for. 

This pen is famous for its small, detailed strokes, making it ideal for small details and touch-ups in your brows. The product is equipped with an ultra-fine tip, and the results are lines that can last for over 24 hours. This product, which can be applied in just a few seconds, is also waterproof. 

As though you needed more reasons to give TatBrow a try, these products were both created in an FDA-approved factory, which can provide you with peace of mind knowing the FDA verified the location. We also don’t use any animal testing at all, because we understand that the way your products are made matters to you. And finally, they ship directly from the United States, which means that your product will be with you faster than if it was shipping from overseas. 

How to Remove Waterproof Eyebrow Products

You might be wondering why picking waterproof makeup is a great idea, and we have an answer for you! Waterproof makeup allows you the flexibility to splash around at the beach or spend time on dry land in a way that traditional makeup would not. Additionally, our waterproof makeup can last 24 hours or more—so you never have to worry about your brows slowly creeping down your face. 

Removing waterproof makeup isn’t exactly a fun summer activity, but it is necessary to help ensure that the skin is getting taken care of. And believe it or not, there are tons of products that can help expedite the makeup removal process when you’re done with your day in the sun. 

One of these products is micellar water. In order to effectively use micellar water to remove waterproof makeup, simply dip a cotton ball or soft pad into the container and get the entirety wet. Then, simply apply the wet cotton ball or soft pad onto the impacted area where you’re trying to remove the waterproof makeup. 

Once you’ve placed the cotton ball or pad onto the impacted area, let it soak up for a few seconds, and then wipe it away. This is a quick, easy, and (most importantly) effective way to ensure that your waterproof makeup doesn’t overstay its welcome. 


In Summation

Summer is on its way, and when it arrives, you’re going to be craving the perfect waterproof eyebrow product. Luckily, TatBrow has created a couple of options that are perfect. Whether you’re starting over fresh with your eyebrows and feel that the Microblade Pen would be more appropriate, or if you want to build on what you already have with the Micro Precision pen, there truly is something for everyone. 

If your eyebrows have experienced scarring and/or thinning, then the more intense Microblade Pen might be the right way to go. That being said, if you’re just looking to tie up some loose ends and continue to enhance your pre-existing brows, the more mild Micro Precision pen would be right for you.

Plus, our products come in six different colors, so there’s something for everyone. Therefore, people of all hair colors and skin tones can wear these effective, beautiful products this summer.

There’s no need to spend yet another summer with smudgy “waterproof” eyebrow pencil streaming down your face. Instead, you can simply switch to a TatBrow product, and you’ll see the difference yourself.
