The Ultimate Guide to Brow Products #eyebrows


Before you begin. Although products are your best friend for everyday upkeep, “you’ll want to visit a pro for waxing, threading, or tweezing every six to eight weeks to nix strays and overgrowth, says Anastasia. Then, when you go to do your makeup, start with clean brows brushed into a shape that suits your face (check out advice on that here). The rest of your prep will depend on what products you’re using. Pencils, waxes, and pomades don’t need any special base, but if you opt for a powder, Soare suggests prepping the brows with some sort of primer or wax pencil. “This will help the powder adhere to the hairs and skin,” she explains.

After you apply. “Always set brows with a gel,” says Soare. “This helps to seal the color and keeps hairs in place, regardless of which type of filler you’ve used. Brow gels are especially helpful when you use a pencil or powder—both of which can sometimes wear off during a long day.”
