If you’ve been keeping up with the latest eyebrow trends, you know microblading is on its way out and and brow lamination is in. However, not everyone wants to commit to the salon treatment. So, here’s what to know about how to perfect the laminated brow look yourself at home.

What is brow lamination?

“Brow lamination is a treatment that relaxes and straightens the brow hairs so that they can be easily repositioned into a full, lifted shape,” says Jared Bailey, global brow expert for Benefit Cosmetics, which offers a Brow Lamination service at its Brow Bars. “Because brow lamination removes the natural bend or curve of the hair, it helps give the illusion of fullness for six to eight weeks.”

Why try at-home brow lamination?

Maybe you’re not ready to commit to a brow lamination service at a salon, or you just want to experiment with the trend on your own terms. Whatever the reason, at-home brow lamination products can help you decide whether you like the look first. Like any trend or beauty look, it’s not one-size-fits-all. “Brows really shape the face, and using an at-home lamination product will help you achieve fuller-looking, more lifted brows from the comfort of your own home,” says Alicia Grande, founder of Grande Cosmetics.

Grande Cosmetics GrandeBROW-LAMINATE Brow Styling Gel with Peptides ($22)

This clear brow-styling gel goes above and beyond to also condition your brow hairs as you wear it thanks to the addition of myristoyl pentapeptide-17. It gives the brows 12-hour hold, and we love that it comes with a dual-ended Pro Brow Styler Brush, so you have everything you need to nail the look.

“This is a supplemental step that you can do in your beauty routine instead of having to go to the salon,” says Grande. “When life gets busy, we make beauty easy. Upkeeping professional lamination services may get pricey or damage your brow hairs, while this gel features peptides to help enhance your overall brow health. You can use this product instead of going to get your brows laminated or to extend your laminated brow look between appointments!”

Size: 0.3 oz | Key ingredient: Myristoyl pentapeptide-17

Rare Beauty Brow Harmony Flexible Lifting Gel ($17)

This water-based gel keeps brows in place without a crunchy feel, and it’s waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about it letting you down at the beach or during a sweaty hot yoga class. “I wanted to create my own version of a laminating gel—something you could reapply and layer without it getting crunchy or stiff,” says brand founder Selena Gomez. “I love that this gel gives you a lifted, laminated look while still feeling soft and flexible like real brow hairs.”

Size: 0.15 oz | Key ingredients: Panthenol, glycerin

Brow guru Kelley Baker has been perfecting the arches of A-listers, including the Kardashians, for more than two decades. This clear brow gel helps you perfect the laminated look at home, and will not budge until you take it off. It’s also made in Italy using sustainably sourced ingredients, and is allergen-free. You can also buy the Laminade as a kit with Kelley’s dual-ended brow brush and spoolie ($39).

Patrick Ta Major Brow Lamination Gel ($27)

Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta knows how to create great brows, which is proof when you see his clientele (he’s worked with everyone from Rihanna and Ariana Grande to several of the Kardashians). This strong-hold, peptide-infused gel is meant to be used on clean brows—Ta says that if the clear gel mixes with powder or foundation, it can create a white residue. One side of the brush is flat, which is meant to be used to press the brow hairs into place once they’re combed into the desired position and shape.

Size: 0.17 oz | Key ingredients: Myristoyl pentapeptide-­17, glycerin, coconut fruit extract

Lottie London Megabrow Brow Glaze ($8)

A steal at just $8, this clear brow gel is a multitasker. If you naturally have a full brow, you can use it alone to tame and accentuate for that slick, laminated look. Or, you can fill in your brows with a color product and then use this on top to lock it in. And lastly, you can even use this on your lashes, to give them a pretty sheen and some hold on a “no makeup makeup” day.

Size: 0.25 oz | Key ingredient: Glycerin

Anastasia Beverly Hills Laminated Look Brow Kit ($24)

If don’t already have a beloved brow pencil, marker or other tint at home, or you’re in the mood to try something new, this kit gives you both steps. First, you apply the waterproof Brow Pen, which lets you draw on tiny hair-like strokes to fill in sparse spots and comes in five shades, from Taupe to Ebony. Then you apply the brand’s award-winning Brow Freeze (it comes with a mini version), which will lock your feathery-looking brows in place for the whole day.

Size: Brow Freeze Mini: 0.08 oz; Brow Pen: 0.017 oz | Key ingredient: Brow Freeze: Glycerin

Brow Code Lustre Lamination Kit ($80)

Made in Italy, this comprehensive kit is the closest product we’ve found to an actual salon brow lamination service. It’s great for the brow pro who feels comfortable with the lamination trend, knows the look they want and is ready to commit. If you follow each step properly, as well as the recommended aftercare protocol, your results can last six to eight weeks. You can also use the kit up to five times, which makes it a really great value compared to salon treatments.

Size: Five 1-milliter Sachets of each step 1, 2, 3; five 1-milliter Adhesive Sachets; one 5-milliliter Mini Brow Gold Oil | Key ingredients: Glycerin, argan oil, panthenol

Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Eyebrow Gel ($26)

When it comes to brow lamination products, some can be a bit intimating. This one’s not only long-lasting—In an instrumental test, this clear gel kept the brows in place for a whopping 24 hours!—it’s super easy to use. The dual-sided, custom-molded wand (bristles on one side and a flat side for pressing hairs into place) lifts and smooths and the formula doesn’t get flaky, even at the end of the day. If you want to switch back and forth between the laminated look and a more natural-looking, feathery one, fluff up your brows, but don’t press them down.

Size: 0.23 oz | Key ingredients: panthenol, cotton extract

REFY Brow Sculpt ($24)

What we love most about this vegan product—the perfect mix of a clear wax and gel—is that comes house in a tube that contains two different types of brushes on the end, in addition to the spoolie. This allows you to apply the formula and then sculpt and set your brows with a clean brush on the other end, as not to risk over-applying the gel.

Size: 0.28 oz | Key ingredients: Vitamin E, glycerin

Milk Makeup KUSH Brow Lamination Gel ($24)

This clear gel is great for beginners who are new to the laminated look because though the formula lifts and sets the brows, it feels a little more flexible than some others and lasts up to eight hours (versus 12 or more). The brush contains both long and short bristles, which the brand designed for even application, but it also recommends that the user gently press the shorter bristles down onto the brows for 10 seconds to set the gel in place.

Size: 0.17 oz | Key ingredient: Hemp seed oil
