“Well-defined” brows can go two ways. You can overdo it and look like a Disney Villain, or you can hit that magic spot where it frames your face but still looks soft and natural. The secret to getting eyebrows right lies in these eyebrow kits.
Eyebrow kits vs Eyebrow Pencils
Eyebrow pencils are affordable and easy to carry around, but they can also be harder to use. To avoid harshy, cartoony eyebrows you need to make little upward strokes, and blend it out with a spoolie. That’s fine if you already have a good eyebrow shape and just need to fill in a few missing spots, but tricky if you have sparse or uneven brows.
Eyebrow kits are more expensive, but they come with tools that actually make it easier to create any brow shape in a very natural way. They often have powders in different shades, so you can apply a softer colour in the inner brows and a darker one at the arch and ends. Some have wax and powder formulas that will ensure your brows stay in place, and the colour lasts all day.
Eyebrow kits also come with mini-brushes (and some, mini-tweezers). It’s like having an eyebrow salon in your pocket.
