Eyebrow Makeup Everyone Should Have In Their Arsenal

Some say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but that doesn’t mean your eyebrows aren’t essential. Yes, your brows are crucial because they frame your eyes and add warmth to your appearance. 

Whether you have naturally fluffy brows or yours are sparse, your eyebrows should always be well-groomed and shaped. We will show you the eyebrow makeup products you need in your arsenal and the secrets to having fantastic brows.

Why Should You Shape Your Brows?

Your eyebrows, whether they’re naturally bushy or over-plucked and sparse with sharp arches, are an essential asset to your facial features. Eyebrows are so crucial that cosmetic companies design many types of brow cosmetics. 

Types of Eyebrow Makeup

There are many options when it comes to eyebrow makeup. Do you know which products you can live without and which ones you need? Here are seven eyebrow makeup products that work well for most people. These eyebrow cosmetics will make your daily cosmetic routine, no doubt. 

1. Eyebrow Gel

Eyebrow gel is essentially mascara for your brows. The neutral-colored gel matches most natural brow shades. It comes in a mascara-like tube with a wand that has a small application brush spoolie. Brow gel gives the brows definition and a hairspray-like hold. 

Swipe the gel in an upward motion onto the brows for application.

2. Eyebrow Fill Pen

Eyebrow fill pens offer a pain-free method to add hairlike strokes to the brow area with precision.  The soft application tip tapers, resulting in life-like brow hair strokes. ForChics provides a 24-hour, water-proof, smudge-proof option for long-lasting brow definition, and it has a nourishing, longwear, creamy formula that allows for a precise application in sparse spots every time.

3. Eyebrow Pencil or Brow Pen

Eyebrow pencil is a fine tip, neutral-colored pencil that fills in sparse brows and adds definition for a natural look. Use a brow pencil to draw a shape or add perfect arches to the brows, like a lip liner. Brow pencils allow you to apply the color precisely, with much control, to the necessary areas. The brow pencil is a long-time popular option for brow makeup.

4. Eyebrow Fibers

Eyebrow fibers are tiny fibers that adhere to the natural brows where applied. These fibers add temporary hold, color, and density to the natural brows. They come in a mascara-like tube with a wand and brush in a pigmented, gel-like formula. 

5. Eyebrow Pomade

Eyebrow pomade/wax is a pigmented cream-based formula brushed onto the eyebrows to help shape and add concentrated color. It has a thick, creamy consistency that is easy to use. The pomade usually comes in a small glass pot with a tiny angled brush to scoop the pomade and shape the brows. 

6. Eyebrow Powder

Eyebrow powder is a pigmented powder that fills in sparse areas where there are thin brow patches. It creates a dark shadow underneath the brows to give the illusion of thicker, fuller, more defined brows with precise arches. Brow powder comes in tubes, pots, or palettes with a tiny brush or wand applicator for the best brows.

7. Eyebrow Tint

Eyebrow tint is similar to hair color and comes in a wide shade range. Brow tint is a semi-permanent hair color applied to the brows to change their color from light to darker. It makes the brows appear longer and fuller and lasts for three to eight weeks depending on the dye used. Tinting the brows is done in the salon or at home using safe and approved methods.

 

Types of Professional Eyebrow Enhancements

Like there are many types of eyebrow makeup available, there are also many professional brow enhancement options. These enhancements are performed in the salon by a licensed professional in a clean and sterile environment. Let’s look at four of these enhancements.

1. Microblading

Micro-blading involves the use of a small tool that has tiny needles. It is a semi-permanent form of tattooing, using customizable ink pigment mixed for each client. The needles draw tiny hair strokes onto the brow area, depositing pigment under the skin. 

Microblading lasts anywhere from one to three years, is water-resistant, and must be performed by a licensed professional. 

2. Powder Brows

Powder brows is a semi-permanent brow procedure that results in a soft, powdered brow effect. A hand tool similar to a tattoo gun creates the brow shading technique. Powder brows are great for people who already have full brows and want more definition. This type of brow lasts two to four years and must be applied by a licensed professional.

3. Brow Extensions

Eyebrow extensions are strands of synthetic or mink hairs that are glued with surgical adhesive directly to your natural brow hairs. These hairs are much more delicate than lash extension fibers. They offer texture and color dimension and last up to two weeks with proper care. Brow extensions are applied by a licensed professional.

4. Brow Wax

Brow wax shapes unruly eyebrows more quickly than tweezers used to pluck individual hairs. Warm wax adheres to the skin around the eyebrows and remains there until it cools and hardens. Then the brow artist pulls the hardened wax from the brows. The wax removes the brow hair it is placed over and leaves you with smooth skin and shapely brows.

Other Eye-Catching Cosmetics

Accentuating your natural beauty with cosmetics supports a youthful appearance. There are many makeup products designed to brighten the eyes and support a smooth complexion. 

When your eyebrows are defined, it brightens your demeanor, giving you a healful glow. Your eyelashes are also an essential aspect of highlighting your natural beauty. Let’s discuss three more eye-brightening makeup must-haves.

1. Mascara

Mascara accentuates the eyelashes in colors such as black, brown, and blue. It lengthens, thickens, and curls the lashes to their best potential and is available in regular and waterproof formulas. Some mascaras contain synthetic lash fibers that add volume and length to the lashes.

2. Lash Enhancing Serum

Lash enhancing serums revitalize hair follicle growth and allow thinning lashes to recover. It comes in a skinny, mascara-like tube with a wand. The wand has a fine-tipped brush on the end, similar to liquid eyeliner, which delivers the serum to the upper lash line. 

You see results in as little as two weeks, with maximum growth potential seen within 30 days with continued use. ForChics lash enhancing serum contains plant-based active ingredients that stimulate growth without the use of parabens and chemicals.

3. Eyeliner

Eyeliner also enhances the eyes. It is available in pencil, felt-tipped pen, gel, and liquid forms. Each type of application is similar; a quick sweep of the product onto the upper and lower lash line will define the eye area and give depth. Eyeliner is available in many colors, with black and brown being the most common.

In Conclusion

Eyebrow makeup is necessary to add to the dimension and shape of the eyebrows. Brow makeup is available in different colors of neutral and different application types. Each makeup type is applied similarly, with the goal of shaping and defining the brows.

The ForChic eyebrow fill pen is unique because it allows you to apply accurate, fine, hairlike strokes to the brow area. The formula lasts 24-hours to keep your brows defined all day.
