I get a lot of questions about my eyebrows and how I make them so full. I personally have microblading which is just a tiny tattoo on your eyebrow to make it look fuller. Read more about my experience here. However, microblading is not the only way to get a full brow. When I am working on set as a makeup artist, I use a brow pencil on most of my clients, in a feather like motion to create the appearance of fuller brows. Brow pencils truly are a staple in any makeup kit. With just a few flicks of a wrist, a good brow pencil can transform sad, sparse brows into full, thick, and perfectly-defined arches. Pencils are more natural looking than a gel and easier to use, brow pencils are for anyone looking to revive their brow game.
I’ve linked some of my favorite brow pencils below, along with the reasons each one is great! Click to shop.
Anastasia Beverly Hills
This brow pencil has a cult-like following thanks to it’s ability to create hair strokes that appear hyperreal—and then last so long you’ll wonder if maybe they are.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil
This drugstore brow pencil with a long-wear formula and teeny tip is just as good at faking brows as ones three times its price.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil
The angled pencil has the hold of a wax, precision of a pencil, and impact of a powder. Use the flat end to fill in large spots and the pointy tip for creating hair-like strokes.
Too Faced Chocolate Brownie Cocoa Powder Brow Pencil
Once you get over the fact that your eyebrows smell like chocolate, you’ll fall in love with the pencil’s creamy glide and blendable formula. I love the angled tip.
Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift Eyebrow Pencil
Everything you need for perfect brows in one genius little pencil. Pop the spoolie brush off to reveal a secret powder highlighter to fake the look of higher arches.
