We take our eyebrows very seriously here at Lipstick, which is why we rounded up a list of our top favorite pencils, gels, powders, and tools for you to try.
Lindsey Unterberger, executive digital editor
"I cannot live without a brow pencil. My current favorites are Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil (a recommendation from Olivia Munn!) and It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. Both are just the right color--not too red or too dark--and make filling in my brows a less-than-30-second process."
Julianne Carell, assistant digital beauty editor
"Being brunette and having thick brows can make you look one of two ways: harsh and overpowering, or strong and beautiful. When I learned that women with light brown hair (like me) should choose a pencil with cool tones instead of rich tones, it changed my entire look from the former to the latter. Now, I won't leave the house without Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette because it is the perfect taupe--and the angled tip makes for a soft, natural application."
Simone Kitchens, associate beauty director
"The first time I heard about putting castor oil on eyebrows, I was in a dermatologist's office. One of the physician assistants told me that it legitimately brought her overplucked '90s brows back to life. I googled around, and a ton of people do it apparently--and with success. It's admittedly a more crunchy alternative to using a brow enhancing serum. I put it on by dipping a clean Q-tip into the bottle, then running the oil over my brows (it's also good for boosting your lashes). It takes a while to work, about a month, but I've definitely noticed a fuller shape and little baby hairs filling in where they hadn't been before."
Beth Shapouri, beauty writer
"L'Oreal Brow Stylist Designer Eyebrow Pencil. Not too waxy, not too opaque. Just a good, solid, count-on-able pencil."
Petra Guglielmetti, beauty writer
"I love the Anastasia brow brush with the spoolie on the other end. I fill in my brows' sparse patches using pencil and then use these two brushes in succession to soften the little pencil strokes even more. This eases my paranoia about my brows ending up fake/harsh-looking alongside the super-natural makeup I prefer."
Jennifer Mulrow, beauty assistant
"I like a good brow pencil (vs. powder or gel) and recently have been loving the Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil. I'll fill in along my brow's natural shape with the pencil, and then comb out and blend together with the brush on the end. I think using the pencil gives me more control as to where I am actually applying the product. I don't want it looking messy! Polished, naturally defined brows are the goal for me."
Caroline Solomon, beauty assistant
"My absolute favorite brow gel--and the only beauty product I genuinely hoard in handfuls--is Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. It is truly the only one out there that tames my unruly brow hair all day long. Plus, the spoolie brush is satisfyingly sturdy and dense, so you can really work your brows into a defined arch."
