Top Bold Brow Products

If your brows are wimpy, you will want to start with an eyebrow enhancing serum. I like GrandeBROW to promote thicker and fuller-looking brows. Made up of a properitary blend of vitamins, peptides and amino acids plus the key ingredient prostaglandin I.C., this serum extends the length of the hair growth cycle. It comes with a special applicator brush that is designed to deliver the product to the natural shape of the brows. You apply it at night, to clean brows to thinning areas of the brows.

To fill in the brows, you can choose from powders or pencils to get the job done.

For powders, I like a few of them.

The first one that I use often is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo. This two-shade powder is smudge-proof and offers just the right amount of coverage to fill in, shape and define brows. I love the fact that there are two shades in each little compact as you can use either shade or both for your own customized color. I apply with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #12 which has a spoolie brush on one end and a stiff angled brush on the other. It applies the powder perfectly. There are 11 duo shade compacts to choose from so literally every brow shade will be covered with this one.

The next powder I use is actually a palette just for brows, the Laura Geller Brow Sculpting Palette. This palette has three perfect products to whip brows into the bold brow shape you're after. It has a duo powder to customize the right shade of powder to fill in brows plus a highlighting powder to apply underneath the brow to lift and sculpt the brows. To set the brow, there is also a sheer wax included in the palette. I really like that this comes with a mini dual ended brush that has an angles brush on one side and a spoolie brush on the other. The palette comes in blonde, brunette and taupe shades.

For pencils, there are some old standby's that I love plus a few new discoveries that I am really enamored with. It's amazing how far in development brands have taken it in, even with an eyebrow pencil.

One pencil that I have used for a few years is IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. This pencil comes in one perfect universal shade that adheres to the skin as you apply it. It somehow really looks like real hairs as you fill in brows no matter how thick or thin you choose to use it. It's super long-wearing so brows are bold all day long.

New and really innovative to the brow game are two that I have been testing and really liking: Urban Decay Brow Beater and Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil.

Urban Decay Brow Beater is an ultra fine pencil that is double-ended with a waterproof brow pencil on one end and a spoolie brush on the other. The microfine tip and unique texture lays down the color perfectly. It's a long-lasting formula that doesn't come off until you take it off.  Brow Beater comes in four shades: taupe, neutral brown, warm brown, and dark.

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil is the one I have been using almost daily. This pencil is so unique; it features a buildable formula that actually combines a powder, pencil and a wax in a mechanical pencil form. The object it to create the look of naturally fuller, defined brows in one easy step and it gets that job done quickly and easily with its unique triangular shape. You cansculpt with broad strokes using the flat edge of the pencil and fill them in with
fine lines using the pointed tip. There are nine shades to choose from, so no matter your brow color, there is an easy to match shade in the line up for you.

I also like Pixi Beauty Endless Brow Gel Pen that just launched this fall. This pencil is a creamy gel-like pencil formula that fills in brows with ease. It adheres to the skin and brow hairs and stays put. This comes in three shades that easily match a variety of brows.

Top 10 Eyebrow Products for Beautiful Brows.

I am pretty much eyebrow obsessed. After being an over-plucker for years, I wound up at one of my daughters eyebrow appointments a few months ago and wound up having my eyebrows waxed. I usually just plucked and tried my best on my own. I thought I did a good job, but I was wrong. After a few appointments, I will be the first to admit that my brows have never looked better. My eyebrows are more full, in a perfect shape for my face that are really the "perfect frame". If you are in Western Massachusetts, I highly recommend Amanda at Bare Skin Waxing.

Eyebrows are such an important part of your face. They not only frame the eyes, they really frame the entire face. Look at a good, cared for brow versus a brow that has never been shaped at all.

By using Instant Lift for Brows, in short, you will create a more youthful, wide-eyed appearance that compliments and completes your look.

This brow pencil is unique. It is double-sided, for some double duty beauty, which I love. On one side, there is a brow filling pencil, in a choice of shades (Soft Blonde, Soft Brown or Deep Brown) while on the other end is a brow bone highlighter, in a universal, warm pink champagne shade.

To use, you first fill in the brow with the brow filler. This is a
