3 Products for Your Best Brows Yet

Natural EyebrowsLet’s talk about brows. While, I like to keep my brows on the more natural side, a lot of my clients like to serve up Cara Delevingne on 1,000. There’s nothing wrong with taking it there with a strong brow, you just need to know what to use so that you don’t look crazy. We’ve all seen great brows, and we’ve all seen “good Lord what is on her face” brows – don’t let the latter be you. In my opinion, it’s always best to lightly fill in a brow unless you don’t have much hair there (due to over-waxing or genetics). I’m going to share some of my top picks to achieve your best brows yet.


Damone Roberts, $20

Damone Roberts brow powder, $20

If you’re brows are already full, you don’t need to fill them in too much, or else you will easily achieve a Burt from Sesame Street look. One of my favorite products to lightly fill in (and if necessary shape) a brow is Damone Roberts brow powder. Powder is a great option fill in sparse areas or slightly shape an eyebrow without looking too intense. It’s buildable, and because it’s only powder it’s also very easy to remove some if you think you’ve used a little too much. My favorite tool to apply brow powder is a thin angle brush

Brow Stylist, $8.99

Brow Stylist Definer, $8.99


For brows that need a little more love, I would recommend a thin brow pencil. The reason why a thin pencil is ideal, is beacause it gives you the most control; you can easily make natural looking, hair-like strokes. My pick is the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer, it’s super affordable and gives lasting results.




In the case that you have little to no brows, or your brows are a shape that you hate, it’s now time to break out the big guns! You’re going to need a product that will allow you to create whatever shape you want, and stay put. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow is the best product in the business for bulletproof brows. I’m not kidding, I’ve never seen a brow product last this long in my life, use it sparingly!

*** Pro tip: Always use a spoolie when applying a brow product. After you apply your desired brow product, use the spoolie to brush brows upward to blend the product in.




Quick Tip: Brow Color

We weren’t all born with gorgeous brows like my model’s. But with the right tools, we can come close.

When most people try to fill in their brows, they try to match the color of their brows as closely as possible, or follow the oft-recited rule of “two shades darker if you are blonde, two shades lighter if you are brunette.” This isn’t bad. It’s just not what I do.

I take into account my model or client’s skin tone when choosing their brow color. My own skin, for example, is on the fair side, but my eyebrow hair is black. I use a light, ashy brown to fill in my brows, and it gives me a way more natural look than using a dark brown or black. I’ve used the lightest blonde shade I have on some fair skinned brunettes (some of whom have been bridal clients who insist it’s still too dark…gotta love weddings). But on a model or client with a deep skin tone who has the same hair color than me, I will go in with  black. Meanwhile, someone with blonde hair and very tan skin would probably get the same color I use on myself, or perhaps something even darker.

The other big mistake I see people doing is choosing colors that are too warm. Always opt for a cool color. Back in makeup school, most of my classmates would either make my brows too red or too black. Here’s how to avoid that! And for all you pro’s and makeup lovers out there, my absolute favorite brow palette is the Anastasia one.
