Remember a few years ago when the whole world went crazy over eyebrows? We were all obsessing over the ABH gel pomade. Funny how trends change. I remember plucking my eyebrows into a thin line back in high school, just to struggle growing them out a few years later when thick brows were back in trend. Now the whole makeup scene is leaning more towards the natural looking makeup, as well as brows. Let’s go through some of the best brow products right now.
You can’t talk about gel pomade without mentioning the iconic Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade . The iconic product that carried the whole makeup community. The shade Soft Brown is perfect for me and my natural looking blonde balayage hair colour. The pomade glides on so smoothly and it stays fresh and moist for a long time, so it’s definitely worth the price. If you’re looking for a cheaper option tho, there is the NYX Tame & Frame Brow with equally good colour options and great quality as well.
Another great and mess-free way to do your eyebrows it by using the eyebrow pencil. Super convenient when you’re on the go as well. The pencils normally come with a spoolie as well, so it’s nice for quick touch ups too. My favorite is hands down the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil. It’s just so precise and perfect for drawing in the little hairs in bald spots. A cheaper dupe would be by NYX once again, the Micro Brow Pencil.
Another trend that took the beauty scene by the storm is brow lamination. I tried it and absolutely loved it, it’s especially great for growing out your eyebrows and getting them to stay in place. A good alternative is of course no other than brow gel. I have tried many and as it might not be the exact same effect as brow lamination, it still does the job. My go to is the Benefit 24-Hour Brow Setter. It has good colour options and I also just wear it on it’s own, when I want to go for a really natural brow. Another great way to replicate the brow lamination is the soap brow technique. Yes it’s exactly what you think it is. I’ve been using the Makeup Revolution Soap Styler that comes with soap and a brush. It works incredible once you get a hang of it. The point is to not apply a lot of product, but just enough to lift the brows and make them stay in place. I also fill them in with pomade or a pencil later when they’re set and it looks so good!
