Eyebrow powder 

As the name suggests, this product is powdery in texture and is perfect for those who like densely-coloured eyebrows. Usually available in packs of 3-4 colours, they are amazing when it comes to filling the sparse gaps in your brows. The best way to select a brow powder is to choose a colour similar to the shade of your eyebrow hair. However, if you have dry skin, we suggest you steer clear of this product.

Eyebrow pomade 

This product is the secret to thick and bold brows. Pomades are creamy in texture and one of the most pigmented variants among the many eyebrow products. They are best for those who have sparse eyebrows, as they can help paint and fill those gaps. We suggest you start with a lighter hand and then spread the product using a spoolie brush.

Benefit Cosmetics – Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil – 6 Cool Soft Black – 0.08g: An ultra-fine brow-defining pencil. How to use: Use light, short, upward strokes to draw in the direction of your natural hair growth. Price💰: $45 AUD for the 0.08g full size. Purchased from Sephora Australia. Positives 👍🏾 1. Natural looking hair-like strokes. 2. Very fine tip. 3. Lasts the whole day. 4. Extensive range of colours that takes into account hair undertones. 6. Perfect packaging with a spoolie on the other end. 7. Doesn't smudge. 8. Perfect for filling in sparse brow areas. 9. Perfect for a 'natural' look. Negatives 👎🏾 1. Wish you can get more product for the price. 2. The travel version of this product needs more shades. 3. Don't wind the product too much, it might snap off because it's so fine. Would I repurchase? Yes! I loved using this. However, because I'm trying to use up what's already in my collection; I will use the Anastasia Brow Wiz next – just to compare. Review 👩🏾‍💻 If you want a 'natural' looking brow, this is the product for you. I'm not one of those people who takes eyebrows seriously. I try to get them threaded every few months or so, other than that; I either just brush on some eyebrow gel, or let them go bare because I usually can't be bothered (gasp!). At first I thought this product would be too 'high maintenance' for me (I was wrong), and it definitely made a difference in filling the sparse areas in my eyebrows. It looks very natural, and pairs so well with the matching Benefit eyebrow gel (I use clear, or shades 5 or 6 in the gimme brow gel). The eye brow pencil lasts all-day on me, it doesn't smudge, the full size includes a 'spoolie'; and the fine tip produces very natural looking hair-like strokes. Furthermore, I really like the colours available, '6 Cool Soft Black' is perfect on me. Some negatives, it's a bit pricey; and if you're rough with the ultra fine pencil it might snap off, so you just need to be gentle with it. In conclusion, this is a great product that I will consider to repurchase in the future.🏅Rating: 9/10 #empty #empties #BeautyWithSmendis

If you are a beginner in the brow zone, this is the product for you. Super easy to work with, eyebrow pencils allow you to make thin, light strokes that give the effect of fluffy and bushy brows. Make fine strokes using an angled brush and then spread the product for a natural finish using a spoolie.

If you have naturally thick eyebrows which you want to set in place, eyebrow gels are for you. Not only that, if you are running late and want to add depth to your brows, brush them up with a gel and you will be good to go. They almost look like mascaras but with added fibres which give a fuller effect. Before you go on to use it, make sure you clean the excess product just how you do with your mascara.
