8 Brow Products for Beginners That We’re Obsessed WithSeptember 23, 2020
If building shape is your goal, try this pomade crayon from Maybelline. It gives off a defined, thick finish and all you have to do is fill in your brows with short, upward strokes. Our favorite part is that it comes in six versatile shades.
Struggling with sparse brows? Let this L’Oréal Paris Micro Ink Pen become your BFF. It’s simple to use thanks to its tiny precision tip, and it looks incredibly natural after application. We also love that it’s super longwearing and waterproof, meaning it won’t budge.
This easy-to-use gel is a must-try if you want to tame brow hairs. Simply swipe the micro-flocked paddle along your brows for a waterproof, tinted finish that offers up to 16 hours of wear. This one is like having brow lamination at your fingertips.
If you’re still deciding whether a pomade or ink is best for you, try this dual-ended formula. Available in nine shades, it has a pomade on one side to help you shape your brows and an ink tip on the other to help you replicate tiny, fine hairs.
The brush on this tinted gel is made up of heart-shaped fibers that deposit product on your brows for a fuller, denser appearance. The bristles disperse even and flake-free color, so you won’t end up with brows that look too bold or done-up.
Glossier Boy Brow is a no-brainer if you want to look super natural. If the rest of your makeup is pretty low-key, this is the perfect option. The clear gel will give your brows a little extra definition, so you still look like yourself. That being said, we also love this option as finishing touch on top of a brow pencil. It keeps everything in place without the stiffness and conditions your brows at the same time.
If you fell into the pencil-thin brow trend of the early 2000s, Lime Crime has got your back. Its Bushy Brow Pen comes in five shades and has a super-fine tip that lets you flick — and plump up — your brows for a fuller appearance. It may take a try or two, but once you master the flick of your wrist, you’ll have enviably thick and precise bushy brows. The narrow stokes ensure that you’re left with a natural, blended and feathery feel rather than a harsh arch.
