Q: What are the best products for filling in eyebrows without looking overly dramatic and fake? I've tried using a pencil and it looks too harsh. I also want something fast and easy. What do you recommend?
A: To keep your brows from looking fake and overly made-up, always use small, light strokes of brow color so it looks more like hair than a dark line. I prefer brow powders to pencils because they are easier to control and look less severe. Here are a few I recommend:
Hard Candy Training Brow
The Body Shop Eyebrow Makeup
Stila Brow Filler/Definer
After applying the color, brush through it with an old toothbrush, a clean mascara wand style brush (MAC #24, for example), or a stiff, angled makeup brush. Finally, set the color with a coat of a clear brow gel like Origins Brow Fix to keep the hairs in place. You can even do the gel by itself if you don't need or want any color.
