From being an unsung hero to being at the centre of beauty world, the brow products have seen it all in the last few years. Earlier our makeup routine were centered around concealer, lipsticks or even mascara, but now, it all begins with filling in our brows after all they frame our entire face and even the overall makeup look. You may be born with genetically blessed luscious brows (lucky you!) and just simply want to groom them, or you might have sparse brows and want to create the illusion of fuller ones. Well, there are right brow products for one and all. And let me tell you, perfect brows are achievable.
Now, for brow definition and more structure, pencils and their precise and/or angled tips are the best bet. Our personal favourite is Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil as its angled pencil tip makes it easier to draw hairlike strokes that blend right in with the attached spoolie brush in a powdery, matte finish. And most importantly, it’s an absolute fit for every brow filling amateur. For extra dimension or even microblade effect, you can switch to felt tip pencils like Urban Decay Brow Blade Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil or Stila All Day Waterproof Brow Color. While pencils help you achieve added definition, powders are ideal for creating that illusion of fullness and M.A.C Great Brows makes a perfect powder-based brow kit.
And then there are pomades and gels to help tame unruly brows and achieve that unforgiving finish. Even a mention of pomade or gel always leads to Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel which is the gel replica of their cult-favourite Dipbrow pomade and is truly all that you need to achieve those fuller brows. Since it’s the year of multi-tasking products, we can’t really end without mentioning Smashbox Brow Tech To Go (pencil and gel combo) and Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro 4-in-1 Defining & Highlighting Pencil.
As your brow friends, we’ll always share the stand-out options with you, but the brow journey is very personal. So, play around with any or all of these products until you find your own right way to achieve those A+ arches. Oh! And before we forget, Fenty Beauty has recently launched an ultra-fine brow pencil with an attached paddle brush aptly named BROWMVP. And we surely can’t wait to try it out!
