When you are always on the go, using an eyebrow pencil is best. Because it gives great control and requires very little effort. The best eyebrow makeup for beginners are pencils too, precisely for the same reason. Now that brows are all the rage, there are so many types, kinds, and even lists of the best eyebrow products and the best eyebrow kit. But we find that the pencil still holds a special place in our beauty hearts for its efficiency. Here are our favourites.
Benefit Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil
This brow pencil has received many awards from beauty magazines. It has also received the nod of approval from its editors who swear by it. Perhaps it must be its ultra-fine pencil that creates natural looking strokes. Plus it is budge proof and lasts 12 hours. It also has a spoolie brush at the other end for blending. Finding the perfect shade is also easy, there are six in total. Pick this pencil to create fuller brows without looking like they are drawn on.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Here is yet another fine brow pencil. We confess—it is our favourite kind. Because fine pencils give great control and strokes look like natural hair. Like this popular pick. It has a wax formula so it also adds texture to your brows. You can use it to outline your brows if you want sharp brows or just to fill in the sparse areas. Make sure to draw strokes that mimic the way your own brow hair grows rather than one long stroke. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz has ten shades and is cruelty-free and vegan.
NYX Precision Brow Pencil
This brow pencil has a flat tip so it is easier to cover more area faster than an ultra-fine pencil. It is a great pick if you have a lot of sparse areas you need to fill in, or perhaps hardly any brow hair at all. You will not have to be using so much product every day that you would have to buy new brow pencils frequently. It is also quite easy on the pocket. NYX Precision Brow Pencil has eight shades, including grey, so you are sure to find one that works for your skin tone and hair colour. And if you change your hair colour often which means you might have to adjust your brow pencil, this is affordable enough to keep buying new ones with every dye job.
MAC Veluxe Brow Liner
Last is this the only non-automatic pencil on the list. MAC Veluxe Brow Liner is a true pencil with a highly pigmented formula with a rich powdery texture. It is also very well suited for warm climates because the formula can withstand high degrees. We are looking at you, Singapore humidity! It is long wearing, up to eight hours, and is sweat resistant too.
