2015 has been the year of the eyebrows. Everyone seems to have suddenly remembered what great things eyebrows can do for your face! A strong brow really does frame the face — anyone who’s seen edited photos of celebrities without eyebrows would agree — and can seriously change your look for the better. Check out these products to see which options might be right for you!
A brow pencil is the most obvious choice. There are lots of different shades to choose from, they’re easy to control, and they can look as natural or artificial as you want. This pencil by Hourglass is one of my favorites because of its shape; since it’s already on an angle, you don’t have to put too much effort into creating hair-like strokes.
This kind of product is perfect for someone who wants to achieve a quick, natural look. Gimme Brow is a tinted gel with fibers that volumize the brows. Comb through brow hairs, focusing on areas that need a bit more filling in. You’ll get added volume without looking like you’ve spent the last hour painting product on your face.
If your goal is to have a flawlessly executed brow, look no further than this brow pomade. You’ll need to pair it with an angled brow brush, and make sure you go easy on the product application! With a light hand, fill in spaces with tiny brush strokes to mimic hairs. Once you’re done, comb through with a spoolie to spread the product evenly. This will last you through a day at the office or an intense cardio session at the gym.
This product is also a great one if you’re going for a more subtle look. Like the brow pomade, you’ll need an angled brush to pick up the product and mimic brow hairs with small strokes. However, this option isn’t as “permanent” and is a bit easier to control and fix up if you make a mistake. Plus, each duo comes with one light and one dark shade, so you can focus them in different areas depending on how intense you want your look to be.
If you want to set your look in place, or if you just want to keep your natural brow hairs from moving around too much, using a clear brow gel is the way to go. It will keep everything in place without the appearance of adding on any more product, and this one won’t leave you with a shiny coating.
