Pencils, powders, gels...which products do you need to acheive perfect brows? Take a look at our guide to find out! We'll tell you which products are best for what, and give you tips for getting beautiful brows.
- Before using any brow product, shape your brows using wax or tweezers. This will give you a clear, defined shape to follow as you apply brow products.
- Which shade to use for which product? When using gel, use the same shade as your brows or one darker. For pencils and powders, which create a more natural look, go a little lighter.
- Not sure what to do with the multiple shades in a brow kit? Use a shade a bit lighter than your brow color just under the arch to highlight it. Some kits include a skintone shade as well to use on the brow bone. You can also blend shades together to customize the perfect shade for your brow.
- No matter what brow product you use, brush through your brows with a spoolie brush afterward to make sure it’s blended throughout. For the best brow shape, make sure to brush the hairs up and outward.
