Once an afterthought in the beauty department, brows are now a main focus. Thanks to icons like Cara Delevingne and numerous Korean celebrities, everyone wants full, glorious brows.
But with so many brow makeup options out there, it can be intimidating to search for one that works for you. So, for a start, look to brow-dedicated beauty labels and products that have been extensively reviewed and loved, especially those with cult-like followings that make them crowd favourites.
One such brand is Benefit Cosmetics, which carries 18 classic and innovative brow-perfecting products for every arch. According to the brand, a Benefit brow product is sold every two seconds. The best part? They each come in a wide range of shades for every hair colour and complexion. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, here are two products to get you started.
For Feathered, Defined Eyebrows
The Precisely, My Brow Pencil ($44) is an ultra-fine eyebrow pencil that allows you to draw incredibly natural-looking brows. Apply it with a light hand as this twist-up pencil is soft and lets you fill in gaps and draw hairlike strokes easily. Great for that feathered-brow look (think Cara), this waterproof product comes with a built-in spoolie brush and is available in eight rich, blendable shades.
For Foolproof, Easy Application
The Goof Proof Brow Pencil ($44) has a wider and thicker applicator that makes it easier and faster to use, so it’s perfect for beginners. Seasoned users would find that it makes application fast and fabulous too. This creamy brow filler comes in eight colours and boasts a waterproof, budge-proof formula that lasts up to 12 hours.
Having the right tool is half the battle won. But it’s important to know that achieving your perfect brow shape, size, look and texture takes more than the right product, because brow dreams are made of patience and lots of practice.
Available at Benefit Westgate Boutique, Sephora, Lazada, Zalora and The Shilla Duty Free.
