Top 5 Brow Products We Swear By

What are the best pencils, gels, and powders for filling in and keeping your brows in place? Keep reading to find out!

#1. Eyebrow Pencil

Of course, you can’t not have an eyebrow pencil. They are great for defining your brows. After shaping your brows, you can use the best eyebrow pencil to fill them in to achieve gorgeous, natural-looking brows. They are especially great for those with sparse eyebrows as you have the freedom to choose the areas you want to fill in.

We recommend getting a twist-up pencil for a mess-free experience! With this eyebrow pencil that delivers the same consistency and natural effect, you don't need to worry about having a sharpener on hand. You don't need to find a bin to dispose of the shavings either!

After filling your brows, don’t forget to brush and blend!

#2. Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

Eyebrow gels are a definite must-have, especially if you’re born with sparse brows. These gels have tiny microfibers that stick to your brows, making them look fuller. What's more, they add a tint that makes the brows look more defined. The great thing about these gels is they don’t require frequent touch-ups throughout the day.

Quite easy to use, volumizing eyebrow gels are buildable. Simply apply a small amount to achieve a more natural look, or add more to get a bold brow.

Choose eyebrow gel that is accompanied by a tapered brush to help you precisely apply the gel and volumize your brows. These gels are available in different hues. The natural shades go well with our natural-looking magnetic lashes!

#3. Eyebrow Powders

Not all girls have the dexterity to use an eyebrow pencil. If you’re one of them, eyebrow powder is the right product to help you achieve natural-looking brows. Although pencils help add color to your brows, they often end up looking waxy. Using the best eyebrow powders will help you get rid of that waxy look. Great for those with sparse brows, powders are great for adding color and volume. Plus, they deliver a much softer effect than most pencils.

One caveat, though, is that eyebrow powders often don’t anchor to the brows as well as other eyebrow products. Opt for all-day waterproof eyebrow powder if you're looking to achieve a long-lasting effect.

#4. Eyebrow Pomade

While you might not have heard of eyebrow pomade or used it so far, this innovation is currently among the most talked-about brow products. Why? It’s because it is considered the “tattoo” product when it comes to brows.

This product can hold your brows in place the longest. However, it can take a bit of practice to get the application down to a pat. Most eyebrow pomades have an easy formula that you can play with. You may need to learn a few expert techniques to apply it perfectly. So, use with caution.

If you’re gunning for a bold brow look that lasts all day, use a pomade.

#5. Eyebrow Serum

Brows can lose their fullness over the years. No, it’s not because you pluck your brows. Eyebrow thinning can be due to a host of factors beyond your control, such as stress and hormones.

While you can always fill up your brows with an eyebrow pencil or powder, a long-term solution would save you a lot of trouble. Try eyebrow serums to nourish your hair follicles and support hair growth. Most ingredients found in eyebrow serums are similar to those used for eyelashes. Peptides, for one, can help promote healthier brows to add volume. Amino acids can help prevent hair breakage and hyaluronic acid can offer conditioning and protection.

To achieve the best results, you need to apply brow serums diligently for a span of several months. Before using a brow serum, it’s best to do a skin test to find out if you’re allergic to the product. Should you experience any itching or swelling, discontinue using the product.

How to Groom Your Eyebrows

Most eyebrow products will do their job well only if you have perfectly groomed arches, to begin with. When it comes to grooming your brows, here are some tips:

#1. Factor in Your Face Shape

Shape your brow face according to your face shape. Before plucking or shaving, it’s important you find the beginning, arch, and end of your eyebrows.

#2. Pluck After Showering

Plucking your eyebrows can be painful. So, it’s best to tweeze them after a hot shower to help open up the follicles. Taking anti-inflammatory meds can help reduce pain and swelling.

#3. Use Good Lighting

Never ever tweeze your eyebrows if you can see them properly. Use natural lighting as much as possible. If not available, do it with good lighting that can help you see all those tiny strands of hair you need to pluck.

#4. Know The Tweezing Technique

If you’re plucking your eyebrows, make sure you do so following the direction of the hair growth. This technique helps you get the whole strand so you don’t end up leaving a hair follicle behind. After all, no one wants a less-than-perfect look!

Don’t use a magnifying glass when grooming your eyebrows as it can mislead you into thinking you have more hair follicles you need to remove. You’ll end up over-plucking.

#5. Trim Your Brows

Lastly, don’t forget to trim your eyebrows. After plucking some overgrown hair, trim the extra-long strands of hair to keep your brows looking their defined best.

Now that you’ve got your eyebrow game to a tee, don’t be afraid to experiment with eyebrow products that will work best for your budget and lifestyle.
