I, like most women, have a love-hate relationship with my brows. For the most part, I’m blessed with thicker brows… unless I screw it up by over-tweezing and overestimating my grooming skills. Since good brows are the only drama I want in my life, brow products are a shining specimen that makes my eyes do a little dance.
So, on occasions where super sleek brows are in order, out comes the tried-and-true brow pencils. To give you the lowdown, we asked beauty influencers what brow products gained a stable spot on their roster.
Bibbidi, bobbidi… beautiful brows!
“I’ve been using it for years now and I love it because I even use it to contour my nose too… it’s a 2-in-1 tool for me!” — Wendy Cheng, @Xiaxue
“After I tried Fenty Beauty’s latest Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler, I found it to be a real game-changer. Many brow pencils in the market have fine tips and are all too pigmented. However, the Brow MVP has a unique paddle brush, which softens my brush strokes easily and helps me achieve more natural-looking brows.” — Aylna Neo @Aylna
“If you lean more towards being a brow expert and don’t really need to fill in your brows as thick as usual, I suggest this brow product from Tarte. It is very gentle and mattifies your brows easily. I also recommend Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dipbrow Pomade ($35) as it offers precision and can even be used as an eyeshadow as well. ” — Sabrina Marican, @Sabrinamarican
“Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow pencil is great for me because of its fine tip, which allows me to create very natural strokes plus easily shape my face with natural-looking brows! Its formula is also sweat-proof which I find to be awesome for my active lifestyle.” — Elaine Rui Min @Elaineruimin
NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil, $16
“The most affordable and my all-time favourite brow pencil is NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil. Not only is it pigmented, but it’s also thin and the application glides on beautifully… allowing me to achieve very clean and sharp-looking brows.” — Tammy Tay, @Ohsofickle
Etude House Drawing Eye Brow, $5.90
“The Etude House brow pencil is my go-to brow product; not only is this product extremely affordable at just $5.90, it also glides on so smoothly and is crazy pigmented! — Ellena Young @Ellenayoungxy
Browhaus Brow Powertool 3-in-1, $23.90
“It helps me to achieve a defined look and highlight my brows. For the ultimate brow look, I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, Etude House Color My Brows and Browhaus together. It lasts so long and I find that it is waterproof, so I don’t have to worry about touching up my brows especially during water sports.” — Fenny, @Ladies_journal
“I would highly recommend the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade because of how lasting it is. As my eyebrows aren’t very full, this product helps provide texture as well when used with a brow brush, which make my brows look better in photos.” — Rachel Wong, @Rchlwngxx
“It gives natural-looking finish brows and it is long-lasting as well! Each cushion compact comes with two different shades that allow me to create a more gradient effect, where I could use the lighter shade at the front of my brows and darker at the ends.” — Jodi Tan, @Jodiaarielle
“I usually use the Cyber Colors Stay Brow Powder Dipliner first as my natural brows are already rather full. This comes in a very fine powder form and I use it to fill in any gaps. Then I’ll use the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow to outline the final shade and draw out the tip.” — Stephanie L.Sihui, @Pinkmasquerade
