Ever since Cara Delevingne stepped on the scene, brows have been a major beauty obsession, and for good reason. Brows literally frame your entire face, so keeping them well-groomed and ‘on point’ can make you look put-together, even on a makeup free day. Luckily, all this recent brow loving means that cosmetics brands have gone crazy with products to help out all of us who weren’t gifted with great brows, and here at CLIQUE Mag we’ve done our research to give you the lowdown on all things eyebrows.
Types of Brow Products:
Pencils: Perfect for changing the shape of your brows and correcting small bald patches.
Gels: Great for setting your brows and managing long brow hairs while slightly tinting.
Powders: Good for defining sparse brows when you’ve already got a decent shape to follow.
Wax/Pomade/Cream: The perfect choice for people who want highly-defined, long-wearing brows with more coverage than a powder or pencil.
