It was 2016, the year we fucking finally started giving a shit about our eyebrows. For this, we should really be thanking eyebrow trendsetter Cara Delevingne for being the real MVP and making everyone become conscious of the caterpillars we have chilling on our faces. Whatever color hair she’s rocking, whether it’s blonde, platinum, or like, totally nonexistent, her brows are always on point. I don’t think we could ever go back to the dark times when our brow products were limited to finding a decent pencil and maybe a decent brush. Now, our options are endless, giving us no excuse to have ratchet, fucked up, scraggly eyebrows. Regardless if you’re a bold James Charles, dramatic Danielle Staub, or on-point Megan Fox, there’s something out there for the inner eyebrow OCD we all have. Here are six of the best brow products in the game that will make your next Insta selfie look like, 10 times better.
The waterproof cream-gel is an all-in-one formula that shapes, fills, and defines brows. Its smudge-proof color lasts 24 hours, giving you a long-lasting natural enhancement or super bold dramatic look. Whether you’re a blonde or dark brunette, there’s def a shade that’s perf for you and the killer arch you dream of.
The timeless essential for brows will only get better from here on out. This retractable pencil comes in a variety of shades, even for all you redheads out there, which is saying a lot already. On one side is a precise tip to define your hairs, and the opposite end features a grooming brush to help shape and fill in with matte color.
If your hairs are looking a little on the Gwen Stefani circa 2000 side, you’ll want a volumizer to thicken them up. The gel formula has literal fibers infused to add the appearance of real-looking hairs with natural-looking shades. Maybe it’s real, maybe it’s just Maybelline at its best.
The thing about brow gels is finding one that isn’t a fucking hassle. Your brows end up either looking creepily slicked back, or feel hard as rocks. For an option that actually does what it’s intended to do, homegirl Charlotte Tilbury’s sculpting gel defines your brows for the arch of your liking, without making your hairs feel (or look) glued down. The clear gel is also full of vitamins and nourishing oils to keep your hairs strong and healthy. #BrowGameStrong
The Boy Brow is a product loved by many, but really praised by true blondes who struggle to find a blonde brow product that’s like, actually blonde. The multipurpose wand comes in four colors for a natural-looking appearance, or in a clear coat that provides the same benefits. It helps thicken, fill, fluff, shape, groom—whatever you need—all in one shot for an au naturale look that doesn’t scream “they’re for my beauty channel.”
If there was a queen of best brow shit, it’d be Anastasia, hands down. Known for creating only the best of the best, Anastasia has a mechanical pencil that’s easy to use, and gives flawless natural-looking eyebrows. It’s great for filling in over-tweezed spots and adding a final touch for crisp, clean brows. The smudge-proof formula lasts through whatever ratchet shit you’re up to so they can look on-point 24/7.
