Shopping for your brows can prove to be difficult if you don’t know what works best for your brow type. So if you’re on the hunt for your best brow fit, just keep scrolling! Whether your arches are barely-there or full AF, we’ve got the tips to get them ready for action. Special thanks to the brow masters themselves, Benefit!
IF YOUR BROWS ARE BARE…
TRY: A brow gel and angled brush
If your brows are bare, your strands are probably light in color and lack a defined shape. To give them more definition, using a brow gel with a short, angled brush should do the trick. A cream-gel formula makes it easy to create hair-like strokes without that heavy, blocked-off look of “Pentel-pen brows.” And with an angled brush, you have more control over getting the exact brow shape you want.

IF YOUR BROWS ARE PATCHY…
TRY: A brow powder kit
Patchy brows have uneven hair growth leaving some areas more sparse than others. To balance out the “gaps”, a brow powder works wonders! Powder formulas let you subtly layer pigment over any bald spots without it looking unnatural. And because brow powders usually come with two flattering shades, the gradient color seamlessly adds dimension to your overall brow look.

IF YOUR BROWS ARE SHORT…
TRY: A brow pencil
If your brows start pretty thick but suddenly thin out midway, you probably have short brows. What this brow type needs is an elongated tail that ends at the corner of the eye. And all you need for that is a brow pencil! The lightweight formula and precision design of a pencil allows you to extend your brows naturally without having to touch the fuller area. Just use gentle strokes so the effect mimics real hair strands.

IF YOUR BROWS ARE FULL…
TRY: A brow mascara
We probably don’t have to explain what full brows look like. This brow style is well-balanced in terms of hair density and brow shape, and thus, needs little work. If all you want is to keep the hairs in place or add a touch of drama, then a brow mascara is the way to go. This formula grooms unruly strands and add just a hint of color for extra oomph. An instant way to enhance your already-great brows!
