How to choose which Brow Product you should be using

Pencils, powders, and pomades oh my…

Which brow product should you be using on your brows? These days there are a multitude of brow products claiming to be the latest and greatest, but is there really any need to reinvent the wheel?

Here are the three brow products you should have in your makeup drawer and when you should be using them. 

Your weapon of choice will depend on the overall look you are going for. And always remember, halfway through filling in your brows to take a step back from the mirror. When you are up close trying to perfect them, you can risk overfilling them, so take a moment to check yourself throughout the process.

The Brow Pencil

If you are looking to create a “feathered brow” look, this is for you. A pencil is the key to adding soft, natural-looking definition to arches.

Who should use the Brow Pencil?

If you have gaps in your brows, need to correct asymmetry or have sparse tails.

How to use a Brow Pencil?

Avoid starting at the very beginning of your brows, instead work from the sparse areas. This is because when we start drawing in our brows, we tend to be heavier handed. Starting in the sparse areas will stop your brows from looking overdrawn. Begin by drawing short, feather-like strokes in the direction of your hair growth towards the tail of your brows.

Brow Powder

If you are looking for a soft, less defined, way to fill in your brows, Brow Powder is for you.

Who should use Brow Powder?

If you want a soft filled in natural brow look, powder is great. However, if your skin is on the drier side, make sure you prep beforehand with a hydrating primer.

How to use Brow Powder?

Firstly, you will need an angled brush like our Alison Jade Duo Brow Brush. Much like a Brow Pencil application, sweep it in the direction of your hair growth, starting in your sparse areas. Once you’re done, be sure to comb through with the spoolie end to soften edges.  You can use brow powder over your brow pencil to set it in place, for a layered look that will last longer.

Brow Pomade

If you are looking for defined look with slight hold – Brow Pomade is your go-to.

Who should use Brow Powder?

If you have very sparse brows and looking for a quick way to fill them in, you will love a pomade.

How to use Brow Pomade?

Grab your Alison Jade Duo Brush and lightly coat it with pomade. Before applying to your brows, test out a line on the back of your hand. This will help you to gage if you have too much product on your brush. Start with the centre of your brows and work your way to the end. The aim is to create a gradient effect – lightest at the front of your brow and darkest at the tail of your brow (heaviest amount of product).

Tip: Use a lighter hand at the front of your brows for a softer shading effect.

Pro Tip – No matter what method of brow definition you choose, tidy up your work with a touch of concealer underneath the brow.
