Brows are the ultimate finishing touch—when they’re good, they bring out your best features, but when they’re bad…oh boy, are they bad. No matter the state of your arches—bushy, thin, angular, flat, light, dark—they can always use a little tweaking. Here are some of our favorite brow-enhancers.
Best for: Mimicking the look of tiny hairs
Use a pencil to fill in sparse areas for a natural, full look. This versatile shade from IT Cosmetics is packed with ingredients that feed hair follicles to fatten them up and add shine. The universal shade works on a wide variety of hair colors, and the waterproof formula won’t smear or smudge.
Best for: Taming rogue hairs
If your brows don’t need additional definition, or you’ve already shaded them in with pencil or powder, use a clear gel to keep them in place. We’re fans of this easy-to-apply version from per-fékt.
Best for: Uniformity
A light application of powder gives your entire brow a soft, sculpted effect. The brow masters at Sumita created an extrafine, easy-to-blend version; use an angled brush to fill in any sparse areas.
Best for: Creating brows out of thin air
Benefit is changing the brow game with this brush-on fiber gel, which latches on to hair and skin to build color. We’re also obsessed with the innovative micro-brush applicator, which allows for precise targeting.
