Eyebrows have a great impact on the overall appearance of the face, framing the features and creating balance when correctly groomed. There are items many of us apply on the brow which include waxes, glosses, gels, powders and brushes, but the classic brow pencil remains an essential when it comes to filling in, shaping, defining and emphasizing the brow.
Here are some of the eyebrow pencils to try out;
Benefit has a truly stellar brow offering, with countless different products to suit your every need. One of the best is Precisely, My Brow – an ultra-skinny waterproof pencil ideal for drawing in individual hairs, and with a handy spoolie on the other end. It also comes in an impressive six shades.
This is a powdery matt texture made By Terry’s Crayon Sourcils Terrybly ideal for creating soft, subtle brows – brushed through with the attached brush – whilst the sharpener ensures perfect precision at all times.
This has different shades ranging from platinum blonde to black and a formula combining powder, pencil and wax for optimum results, Arch by Hourglass is a perfectionist’s dream. With a brush on one end for grooming, this pencil’s triangle-shaped tip allows you to create precise strokes as well as filling in the brows with ease.
Brow experts HD Brows offer a whole range of brow tools, but our favourite is the ultra-skinny Browtec. The twist-up design means no need for sharpening, whilst the formula is blendable and long-lasting.
The shades are natural-looking, the slanted tip is easy to use, the formula is long-lasting and the brush and sharpener at the other end will ensure that your brows never look less than 100 per cent.
MAC’s Veluxe Brow Liner comes in flattering and realistic shades for those with red and strawberry blonde hair as well as classic brunettes and blondes. Use the brush to keep brows in check, and make sure to use a good sharpener to avoid the pencil crumbling.
A super-skinny applicator and brush mean that Urban Decay’s Brow Beater is lightweight enough to carry around all day, as well as offering optimum precision. On top of that it’s waterproof , no sliding brows, thank you.
A good, classic brow pencil with great results, Dior’s Sourcils Poudre is long-lasting, easy to use and comes in a range of realistic and flattering hues.
NYX Professional Makeup
This comes in different shades to suit every hair colour including grey – the Precision Brow Pencil by NYX Professional Makeup has a flat tip on one end and a spoolie brush on the other for neat, defined brows.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow has highlighter hidden beneath the brush which makes it to stand out from the crowd, designed to be worn just under the arch for an instant face lift (hence the name).
