Brows have become one of the most powerful features of our face. Many celebs are known for their iconic, fierce brows; Dua Lipa, Maisie Williams, and Cara Delevingne have all given rise to the bold eyebrow trend.
Nowadays, brows have become pretty high maintenance; makeup isn’t really complete until you’ve at least darkened your eyebrows. So, when it comes to doing our brows at home, we all want to make sure we’re using the best products on the market, right? Here’s a few of the best eyebrow products to make sure your brows remain on fleek.
When it comes to brows, Anastasia Beverly Hills offer an extensive collection of products. Their Dipbrow Pomade is by far their most popular product; its waterproof formula gives you the time to blend the product before it dries to a matte finish. Dipbrow also comes in a magnificent 11 shades to choose from – so you’re guaranteed to find a good match for your brows. The Dipbrow is great for building both full and natural brows, and its smudge-proof and long-lasting formula allows you to create small hair-like strokes, which is why it recommends being used with the Anastasia 7 B angled brush. (Dipbrow: £19, Beauty Bay)
Similarly, Iconic London offer a pretty innovative brow product. The Sculpt and Boost Brow Cushion is a two-toned liquid eyebrow compact that will fit neatly in any handbag. This product comes in 4 different shades, from fair to deep, and even has its own applicator with both a spoolie (the pipe cleaner type brush) and an angled brush. The idea is that you use the spoolie to comb the brows and the angled brush to bounce into the cushion and apply this to the eyebrow in hair-like strokes. (£26.99, Iconic London).
If you’re not wanting to spend as much, there are some much cheaper products out there. The Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel is a high street revolution; gone are the days of eyebrow tint appointments. This long-lasting product is simple to use and won’t break the bank either, only costing £12.99. Furthermore, NYX also have their own eyebrow pomade, more modestly priced than the Anastasia Beverly Hills, at only £6.50.
Benefit Cosmetics have become increasingly invested in their brow products. From gels, pencils, powders and brow highlighters, Benefit offer an enormous collection. The Goof Proof Brow Pencil has always been a popular product, coming in 7 shades this pencil is known for its angled tip which allows for quick and easy application – it is literally “goof proof”. (from £13, Boots).
If like me, you’re fair haired its often difficult to get your brows to stand out without making them too dark. If you’re a natural blonde, finding the right colour eyebrow products can be a bit of a nightmare. I tend to find that lighter powders and brow mascara’s work best on my pale eyebrows, my favourite is the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara, priced reasonably at £6.50.
Currently, the latest eyebrow trend seems to be for feathered brows. Sported by Gigi Hadid, this look has never been easier to create; all you need is spoolie and some clear brow gel, which you can pretty much cheaply buy anywhere. The Rimmel London Brow This Way transparent gel is enriched with Argan oil to keep your brows soft and moisturised, but best of all, it is inexpensive- coming in at £2.99. This gel gives you great looking brows without the big price tag.
