Eyebrow is one of the most eye-catching parts on your face though you may not notice. If you ask a professional makeup artist for 5 must-have cosmetic products, eyebrow makeup is one of the 5 for sure. Eyebrow makeup comes in many different forms and having the best eyebrow makeup helps create a youthful appearance and reshape your face contour.
Eyebrow pencil is the most common eyebrow makeup. It is also the origin of all other eyebrow makeup. The best quality of eyebrow pencil should be soft and smooth. You feel no tension when drawing your eyebrows.
Eyebrow pencil is easy to control and with one eyebrow pencil, you can use for a long time. But it also has drawbacks. You may have your eyebrows unnaturally or stiff drawn.
Tips: When drawing your eyebrows, hold the pencil at the end. Gently and quickly draw (soft and fast stroke) in the direction of your eyebrows. Blend the color well.
Benefit Instant Brow Pencil ($20)
This is your perfect brow pencil for soft, subtle, long-wearing definition in an instant. It glides on easily and leaves a natural powder-like finish. The other end is a small brush which allows you to smudge and blend. Three shades are available.
Matt eyebrow powder is the best choice for filling in and shape your eyebrows. It can be substituted by eyeshadow (same as your eyebrow color). Eyebrow powder gives a natural effect and it stays for a long time.
Inappropriate use of eyebrow powder usually results in heavy makeup eyebrows.
Tips: Apply eyebrow powder with a small angled eyebrow brush.
M.A.C. Brow Shader ($15)
This is a compact of two sheer pressed brow powders that work together as a combo to refine and define the arc of the entire brow area. It is available in five different shades.
Eyebrow gel is a light texture cream which quickly adds colors to and reshapes and intensifies the natural line of your eyebrows. You can use it alone or after the use of eyebrow powder.
M.A.C. Brow Set ($15)
A brush-on gel that strokes brows into shape. Adds shine and style. No flaking or stiffening. Tinted or clear. Also grooms lashes, sideburns and facial hair.
Eyebrow cream has excellent covering power. If you have few eyebrow hairs this is the most suitable product for you. But, it may not give you a natural look as eyebrow powder makeup.
