I’m sure you’re all aware by now that brows are a pretty big deal. Gone are the days of overplucked, pencil-thin strips of hair that do nothing for your face. The past few years have been all about thick, luscious brows sculpted and shaped to your specifications, whether you prefer something expertly manicured or are more into the wild, Cara Delevingne-esque look.
Just knowing that super defined brows are the in thing isn’t enough, though – they take quite a lot of maintenance, love and time to look perfect. If you’ve got no idea where to start, don’t you worry. We’ve put together a list of our favourite brow brands, carrying products that cover every base, from sculpting tools to those that’ll give your brows colour and definition.
New brand on site Garbo & Kelly are all about helping today’s makeup addicts achieve glittering old-world glamour, reminiscent of Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly and more. They’re primarily a brow-oriented brand, with a massive selection of tools that’ll help you perfect your brows. If you’re a total newbie, the Garbo & Kelly Brow Guides are a handy little accessory to have. Use these stencils to sketch out your best brow, taking into consideration your face and existing arch. We also love their Brow Pomade for high-def colour. Pick the colour that suits you best and get to defining, using a brow brush like the Garbo & Kelly Brow Brush to create little ‘hairs’. Don’t forget to grab a pair of their Cosmetic Tweezers for easy, pain-free brow maintenance!
Perhaps our best-selling brow product is the Poni Cosmetics Brow Magic. This nifty eyebrow pencil is a one shade fits all kinda deal, which when it comes to brow colouring, is practically a miracle. If you’re all about the natural brow look then pop this one into your morning makeup routine and notice how well-groomed yet effortless brows look. Enriched with biotin, brows will also look and feel more luscious after just a few weeks of use. Another Poni brow fave is the Zebra Brow Gel, a setting product that applies with a mascara-like wand.
Known for creating stunning fluffy brows, Victoria Curtis of Curtis Collection is all about framing the eyes using this facial feature. She’s developed a range of brow products that are suited to a variety of hair and skin tones, and will help you achieve whatever brow look your heart desires! The Curtis Collection Brow Tint is a great trick to have up your sleeve if you’ve got sparse brows. Simply apply and watch colour appear more evenly, giving the illusion of a thicker, well-maintained brow. The Brow Perfector is an easy-to-use, marker-style tool that’s great for beginners. Feather on colour lightly and build up pigment as desired.
Up your brow game everywhere you go with the high quality yet travel-worthy brow products on offer from Mirenesse. Sketch and fill your brows as desired using the Mirenesse 3D Multishade Brow Express, an tool that everyone should have in their makeup arsenal! This easy to operate brow pencil helps impart a 3D effect by giving the illusion of real, individual brow hairs. Pick up the universal shade without having to work out what your colour is! If you’ve got a little sparseness, or just need something to help you redefine your brows on the go, we recommend the Mirenesse Touch Up Brow Sculptor. This nifty gel pencil helps hold brows in place while imparting a little colour.

I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
