The Best Brow Products For Full, Feathered Brows
Full, feathered brows are an integral part of our daily beat; even when we’re opting for a minimalist look, you can bet our brows are brushed and styled to perfection. To create our face-framing arches, we rely on an array of products, from our ride-or-die precision pencil to create tiny hair-like strokes to the stronghold brow glue that keeps them brushed up all day long. Looking to add to your brow wardrobe? Here’s a list of our fave brow products that never let us down.
1. The Best Pencil: Huda Beauty #BOMBBROWS Microshade Brow Pencil, $17
Our first-ever brow product is a pencil-like no other. The #BOMBBROWS Microshade Brow Pencil has THE THINNEST tip possible for an eyebrow pencil (yes, thinner than any other pencil you have tried before!), which means creating realistic, hair-like strokes is actually super easy. The tip is so thin; you just need to twist a tiny amount of product up (1 mm to be precise) to start filling in and defining your brows. The formula is super long-lasting and won’t fade or smudge throughout the day – it’s even sweatproof. There’s also a spoolie on one side to brush your brows with for a full and natural finish. Check out our shade guide to find out which of the eight shades will work best for your brows.
2. The Best Wax: Anatasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze Styling Wax, $23
This styling wax garnered cult status almost as soon as it dropped, and for good reason. The easy-to-use formula lifts, tames, and sculpts even the tiniest hairs and locks them in place with extreme hold. It’s our secret to creating laminated brows in seconds. However, unlike other wax products, it doesn’t leave your brow hairs feeling stiff or flakey but instead coats them with an incredible glossy formula that doesn’t irritate your brows. We’re completely obsessed.
3. The Best Long-Hold Brow Gel: NYX Professional Makeup The Brow Glue, $8
If you’re constantly dealing with unruly brows, this brow glue is about to save the day. The strong-hold gel formula is flake-resistant, non-sticky, and dries down with a natural finish that holds your brows in place all day long. It’s also 100% waterproof and transfer-proof, which is essential for the summer months. Thanks to the precise round bristle brush, it’s easy to apply. Plus, like all NYX Professional Makeup Products, it’s vegan and cruelty-free.
4. The Best Duo: Urban Decay Brow Blade Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil & Ink Stain, $26
As soon as we saw this brow product, the bargain lover within us rejoiced! One product with two brow formulas – yes, please! On one side, you have the typical wax-like pencil formula with a really precise tip, and on the other end, a super-fine pen tip with an ink stain. Both formulas are long-lasting; however, they’re not completely waterproof. It also comes in seven shades, which may not sound like much, but the shade range covers both the deep and fair ends of the spectrum.

5. The Best DIY: Pear Transparent Original Soap, $4.50 (for 2 bars)
Laminated brows aren’t going anywhere soon. However, if you don’t want to spend your cash on yet another brow treatment, soap brows are the easiest way to fake that feathered finish. Soap brows have been around for a while, but they’ve blown up on TikTok recently (the hashtag ‘soap brows’ currently has 159 million views alone). They’re exactly what you think (brows tamed with soap), and the best part is they’re 100% foolproof. Oh, and this soap is THE must-have product. It’ll coat, thicken, and set your brow hairs in place all day long. Check out how to slay soap brows here.

Whenever we’re rushing out the door but still want our brows to be defined, we grab the Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel, $24. The tinted formula contains tiny microfibers that adhere to your natural brows to instantly add volume and thickness. But don’t stress, it’s easy to apply thanks to the tiny tapered brush, which provides mess-proof application. The buildable formula is also water-resistant and long-wearing – it ticks every box. We also appreciate the shade range – there are 10 shades to choose from, ranging from cool light blonde to black, so you can easily find a perfect match.
7. The Best Sculpt & Highlight: UOMA Beauty Brow-Fro Fro to Go, $26
UOMA is constantly coming through with innovative, multi-tasking products, and that includes this do-it-all brow product.

They’ve thought of everything!
8. The Best Pomade: Maybelline Tattoo Studio Brow Pomade, $13
If you have sparse brows, this creamy, pigmented brow pomade is for you – it builds easily, it’s transfer-proof, waterproof, smudge-proof, and lasts up to 24 hours. The pomade also comes with a double-ended brow tool: at one end is an angled sculpting brush, and at the other end, a spoolie to tame and blend. It’s available in eight shades, ranging from Light Blonde and Auburn to Ash Brown and Black Brown, so you’ll be sure to find a shade match. We love to use this pomade to sculpt; then, we use a brow gel to brush the hairs up for a more natural feathered look. Check out our full review for more deets.
