Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that brows are big business. In fact, there’s so many brow products it can be a little overwhelming.
I’m not a fan of super dark, heavily pencilled brows, neither ones that are left ungroomed. To me the perfect brow lies somewhere in the middle.
But, alas, like many folks, to achieve those perfect brows I need a little help. Brows should be like sisters, or so the beauty pros say. In their natural state, mine are more like distant cousins, with a few sparse bits thrown in for good measure.
Like many, I’ve developed an arsenal of brow products. Here are the products that I reach for time and time again
Brow Wiz, Anastasia Beverly Hills
I tend to use a superfine brow pencil the most over any other brow product, and Brow Wiz has been a constant companion over the years in my makeup bag. It’s a retractable, super fine pencil that enables you to spot-fill where needed and create precision hair-like strokes. I find it glides on easily and is long-wearing and smudge-proof. It comes in a good range of shades too – 10 to be precise. I love the fact it has a custom spooley on the end. In fact, any pencil that doesn’t come with a spooley is a no for me.

Fluidline Brow Gel Crème, MAC
I don’t use this every day, instead I tend to reach for it when I’m after a heavier made up look. This cream has a smooth and silky texture which applies like a dream enabling you to fill, lengthen and shape for everything from a subtle to a dramatic look. It’s waterproof and super long-lasting too. It comes in five shades (a few more would be nice), but, there’s still sufficient to cover most skin tones. You’ll need a brow brush – MAC 208 angled brow brush does the job nicely. If you’re a fan of a super sculpted, high definition brows, this is the product for you.

Great Lash Clear Mascara, Maybelline
You don’t always have to drop big money for great products. Maybelline’s Great Lash Clear Mascara is a case in point. This clear gel quickly tames brows and sets them in place. Use after filling in with powder or pencil to set brows and keep them looking neat.

Eyebrow Shaper, NYX Cosmetics
I love this chubby, inexpensive wax pencil that quickly and effortlessly tames the unruliest brows. A quick swipe of this allows you to groom brow hairs and keep them in place, no matter how long the day or night lasts. It’s also great if you would rather keep eyebrows natural, but just want to make sure they look neatly put together, without being overdone.
