Brow Kind of You

It’s no secret that I love a good brow. I think brows are the best way to lift and enhance the face with minimal effort. There are a lot of different styles of brow filler, and it can get overwhelming to find the right one if you’re not sure what you’re looking at or for.

Precision Eyebrow Pencil

brow-tech-matteNotable Option: Smashbox Brow Tech Matte, $21

This is a skinny pencil, often in a twist-up tube. The idea is that it will give you the thinnest, hair-like stroke of product, for a natural effect. These are particularly great for those who have plenty of brow, but just need a few spots filled in with a few “hairs,” or for extreme perfectionists. (You know who you are. Welcome.)

Eyebrow Gel Pencil



 Notable Option: Kevyn Aucoin The Brow Gel Pencil, $28

This is exactly what it sounds like: smooth gel in a pencil form. Softer than a gel eyeliner, and more sheer, these are ideal for a natural shine finish, adding depth or texture on top of a penciled brow, while (usually) adding a little bit of color.

Eyebrow Mousse

One of my favorite inventions! Like a mascara for your eyebrows. It will usually add color, hold hairs in place, and define. This is ideal on top of any other brow defining product, or for girl who wants bolder brows in a hurry. Grab a clear one if you’re not sure you’ll like the effect.

Eyebrow Powder

Sometimes a brow powder comes in a pot, like an eyeshadow, and sometimes it comes in a tube with its own applicator. Powder is great for a soft look, but it’s more versatile than you may realize. Sweep through bare brows with a clean spoolie brush for slight definition, apply with an angled brow brush for a gently defined look, or dampen the brush for an intense and longer lasting brow.

Eyebrow Pencil

What most people think of when they think of brow filler. These come in a wood casing, like a normal pencil. The most blendable look, which is ideal for someone who isn’t super sure what to do yet, or someone who has a lot of brow space to fill in.

    Any suggestions for the older woman who has lost most of her eyebrow? I hate the look of my sister’s totally-pencilled brow and would love to find her some alternative. Thanks for the help.
