It's a tough world out there, wandering through well-lit makeup aisles and scrolling through countless product swatches on your favorite beauty blogs. Variety and options are great, sure, but having too much to choose from can make you feel inundated and overwhelmed. The solution? Default to an expert opinion. Today, we're dishing on the eyebrow pencils that makeup artists and beauty insiders swear by, so may you go forth and have the most enviable, natural-looking brows in the office.
1. Super Fine Eyebrow Pencil Automatique by Kimiko
Rebecca Perkins, founder and head makeup artist at Rouge New York makeup salon, says her favorite eyebrow pencil is the Super Fine Eyebrow Pencil Automatique by Kimiko. "The fine point twist-up pencil allows for small strokes that creates a naturally fuller brow," she says. It's $25 and comes in three shades.
2. Smashbox Brow Tech Brow Pencil
"I like to mix brands and products to achieve the best results," says beauty vlogger Huda Kattan. "I love using the Smashbox Brow Tech Pencil in Brunette—it's a universally awesome medium brown—and then finish up using a cream and brow powder!"
3. Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color
"I also really love Benefit's new Brow Collection! My favorite product in their line is the KaBrow Gel Brow Cream," says Huda. "This really allows you to create the right brow with the right intensity of color, since it's easy to customize!"
4. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil
"My favorite brow product has to be Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil," says beauty blogger Teni Panosian of MissMaven. "It comes in the perfect angled shape so I can easily draw in little hash marks to mimic my brow hairs, and the formula is soft enough that it glides on comfortably. Once it's on, it stays put."
"I work with clients every day doing brows, so I know what's needed to create the holy grail pencil," says Tonya Crooks, celebrity makeup artist and Megan Fox's longtime brow stylist. She created her own line, The BrowGal, which includes her favorite eye brow pencil. She explains what makes her pencil stand apart is the colors it's offered in and the consistency.
