The Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker: This is the Story of a Brow

A spontaneous self-portrait from the past… Note my uneven eyebrows, ha!

For some reason, I’ve always had one shy eyebrow. There’s nothing overly patchy or horrible about her…but she was always less handsome than the other. It was a small quirk of mine, and it even presented itself in my self-portraits and portraits for others. A face just didn’t seem “real” unless those eyebrows were drawn distinctively different.

But then 2015 happened, and I felt like my eyebrows couldn’t keep up with the Instagram-level makeup happening. I bought my first couple eyebrow products and used the lightest products I thought I could get away with. My only intention was to shade that virgin skin shining through my thick hairs and over to your eyeballs. For a while, it was a nice, natural look, but the effects were completely gone by the end of the day.


That is, until I tried the Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker ($22 for 0.33 ounces).

About Chosungah 22

“As the first major professional makeup artist in Korea, Chosungah ushered in the era of K-Beauty. For 25 years, her breakthrough brand has offered products that come with a twist, allowing women all over the world to enjoy makeup as a form of play and self-expression.”


While they’re a little tricky to use at first, the Brow Makers give some awesome results that are well worth the learning curve. This is one LONG-LASTING product that’ll definitely need to be removed at the end of the day.

First of all, the packaging is TOO cute and quirky. They look like chubby highlighters! What more could you ask for!?

The “highlighter” cap twists off to reveal a half-sponge, half-wand contraption, and as you can see from my face above, it can get a little messy in the beginning.

Here are a few tips to get you to brow heaven without all the roadblocks:

  1. Prep the hairs by swiping through your brows in the direction of hair growth.
  2. Using the sponge marker tip, fill in the darkest areas first before moving to the edges with shorter strokes.
  3. Start to swipe through your brows more heavily this time to quickly spread out the liquid. While the gel is very thin, it will dry quickly.

While I am wearing “Brown-Black” in my pictures, I prefer “Grey-Black” for my lighter complexion. I think “Brown-Black” will be perfect for true brunettes or darker-skinned girls.

    Thumbs up for me also – I now know how to apply brow maker properly. I agree with you grey brown is better, just the color I am looking for. A big thank you.

  2. Kim says:

    This looks great on you, though I find the wand to be a bit terrifying (thinking of the mess I’d make) and I’m a bit concerned about the “tricky” part. That said, the results seem to be worth the effort. Great sketch, as always. 🙂

  3. Christine says:

    Oh. Em. Gee. You’ve described my eyebrows story as well and this product looks like the solution!
    Thank you also, though, for accepting the eyebrow asymmetry. For days I want to be even I’ll give this a shot.

  4. Erin says:

    I think most of us have a brow that’s slight off in some way so you are in good company!

    I purchased this when it first came out, and decided it works best on brows that need minimal help. My own brows are sparse, the hairs I do have are very long (I have to be very careful when trimming, because sometimes trimming one long hair can cause a “bald spot” quite a distance away), and my brows are too light and uneven in shape.

    The Brow Maker works well to darken brow hair, and add definition to the “tail” of the brow, but if your brows are sparse and need a lot of shaping, you’ll find that tip cumbersome to manipulate and the color uneven/blotchy (if applied over a large area).

  6. Sakura says:

    Oh my gosh this looks great! I will have to try this. I have brow issues. I need to fill in my brows to make them closer together because they don’t end nicely above my inner eye. Powder always looks so fake, so I use a bit of that and a bit of light brown liquid liner. I haven’t been satisfied with the look.

  7. My brows are slightly different as well, and I am still on the hunt for the perfect product. This one looks intimidating though.

    I once read that brows should be like sisters and resemble each other, not identical twins. Which made me laugh because my brows are more like kissing cousins, they are so different from each other. I need to try this product.
    I love the eye look you created in the photos, what shadows are you wearing?
    Another beautiful drawing. I love seeing the illustrations that accompany your posts.

  9. Jae says:

    My brows are naturally arched and full but one of them doesn’t like to play very nice and needs a tad bit more work. I’m interested in this product and it looks like something I’m definitely going to pick up and try! Thanks for the comparison of both shades on your brows! I’ll be picking up the black brown! 🙂

  10. Sandy says:

    Going to have to take a trip over to Sephora and check this product out.

  11. Jessica says:

    I love your posts because you include illos! (I’m an illustrator myself so I can appreciate that!)
    One of my brows are definitely more pathetic than the other. They may be sisters, but they’re not twins! Left sister is an underachiever.

    Gah, this makes your brows look fabulous!

    I would like to try this — I think it might work well for me, and Grey Brown looks like a great color for me, too, not too golden or too red. I always use a tinted brow gel to color the brow hairs that have turned white, and with this, I wouldn’t need a second product to fill them in — and the applicator is right there in the package — convenient!

    I’ve soooo been wanting to jump on the Korean beauty brand bandwagon. I’ve never heard of this brand but the product sounds interesting. It prolly won’t replace my beloved MAC Spiked but that just means I’ll have to find another Korean brand to try (and I can’t wait!). Lovely post, per usual 🙂
