Brow Game: How to Achieve Perfect Eyebrows

A well groomed, defined brow is a real game changer when it comes to make up. It can totally transform your face in one fast, easy step. Ever since the rise of Cara Delevigne and her cult brows, there has been a multitude of products on the market, from powders to pencils, pens and mascaras; knowing what works and what product to choose for your brow is key. Whatever your brow type, from patchy and fair to thick and dark these are the ultimate go-to products to achieve the perfect brow:

Pens/ Pencils/ Powders 

Those with a sparser brow who need to fill in the missing hairs and add definition should try Suqqu’s Liquid Eyebrow Pen. Rather like microblading but without the pain or semi-permanent worry, its super fine tip allows for precision application with a very natural finish. The 4 colours in the range are all water resistant.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz is a cult product to come out of the US that graces the kits of most make up artists. With a brush on one end and a super fine, twistable, pencil on the other you can shape and fill in one easy step. The 10 shades work for the fairest brow to the darkest.

Illamasqua’s Eye Brow Cake  is great for dark brows that want a softer, more diffused finish. Its powder form needs to be applied with an angled precision brush such as this (Angled Brush) and buildable layers can be applied for a stronger more defined look.


Those with a naturally fuller, stronger brow should try mascaras that coat the fine, fairer hairs that are often invisible to the eye to create a natural, enhanced brow. Our favourite is Glossier’s Boy Brow. (Can Glossier really do no wrong?) This clever mascara fills, thickens and holds brows in one place, in one step. It comes in 4 shades, including a clear version for those who need no filling.

Legendary Brows from Charlotte Tilbury’s eponymous make up range, are fantastic for lighter brows. The super fine brush coats even the smallest of hairs, adding definition, with a light natural finish.
