Eyebrows are one of the most defining features on the face, and when shaped improperly can draw attention in all the wrong ways. While I covered the art of shaping your eyebrows in Wednesday’s blog post, I want to talk about eyebrow products so you can decide which one is right for you so you can get the results you want. Here’s the lowdown on what you need to know about eyebrows products:
These handy little tools allow for precise brow-filling. Most people who want the most control will use a pencil, because of its simplicity and ease of use. Try a pencil that has a cream to powder formula, which allows for it to glide on easily and efficiently. Use light feathery strokes to create natural looking, defined brows.
This tool delivers natural-looking eyebrows that stay put! Similar to mascara, brow gels come in tinted shades or clear varieties and are easy to use! Just lightly comb through your brows with the gel for easy, all-day hold.
Brow powders are ideal for adding some volume and depth to your brows. These varieties are designed to add definition and usually come with an angled application brush. Go for a color that’s about two shades lighter than your natural hair for a more natural finish. Start with a little powder on the brush and use light feathery strokes (add more powder if needed) to fill in your brows to create a natural, defined look.
If you want waterproof, stay-all-day brows, this is the product for you. Brow waxes are used to fill in gaps within brows and are also usually waterproof. The wax typically accompanies a pencil or powder to help set the color and shape.
Pomades have a creamy formula that will define and color your brows and last all day without smudging. Use an angled brush to sculpt your brows to perfection. Start with a little pomade on the brush to define your brow, then use light feathery strokes to fill in (you can add more if needed) to create a sharp, bold look.
