Brow Breakdown


A couple of years back, if you'd asked me to pick only a couple of beauty products that I swear by, I would have never mentioned anything to do with my eyebrows (I'd have gone for concealer, mascara and blush). But after desperately trying to grow my brows back for a while now, filling them in has become part of my daily routine. There are so many different ways to do it though, that I decided to try out three products to see how I liked each one. Here's my take on whether I prefer to use a shadow, pencil or colored gel and the pros and cons for each.


Powder: Anastasia Brow Powder

Pros - Easy to build, has the most natural look, can mix-and-match shades to get the perfect color.

Cons - Requires two items (shadow and brush). Eyebrows don't stand up, so a gel is needed.



Pencil (my favorite): Lancôme Brow Liner

Pros - Super fine tip so I can add very natural-looking hairs, glides on easily, so it doesn't look severe.

Cons - The comb isn't the best. Eyebrows don't stay up, so gel is needed.



Colored Gel: Nars Brow Gel

Pros - Only one required step that deposits color and helps eyebrows stand up.

Cons - A bit messy, hard to control amount you get, doesn't fill in as well as other options.
