Benefit has all the answers to your eyebrow questions!

What is the best brow product for me?

When choosing the perfect shade for your eyebrows, there are some tips you should keep in mind. To avoid contrasting your hair, stay two shades away from your hair color. Look at the colour of your eyes. Dark eyes will suit a darker shade, and lighter eyes will suit a lighter shade. Each person has their own preferences for products, such as powder, pencil, or pomade, depending on the brows you want to achieve.

pencils work best to fill in areas that are sparse and define your arch. Pomades work best for shaping and darkening brows. They are also great for oily-skinned skin types because they last! Powders work best on fine haired brows to give them a natural appearance. We recommend finishing each brow with a brow setter like 24hr Brow Setting for slicked-up brows, or GIMME

Do you have any tips on how to make your brows look as natural as possible.

The majority of people will use a brow gel and then a pencil to shape their eyebrows. To minimise the amount you use, you can apply your gel before filling in any sparse areas with a pen.

What are the rules for drawing eyebrows?

It’s no secret that brows in 2016 are out. Keep things looking natural instead of using a harsh outline on your brows. Concentrate the product on the tails of the brows in order to maintain a natural look.

What is your eyebrow routine?

You can see full and fluffy brows all over Instagram and TikTok. Layering brow products is my favorite way to achieve this look. To create this look, I fill in sparse areas with My Brow Pencil, using feather-like strokes. Next, I use GimmeB

What is the best eyebrow tip for beginners?
