STEP. AWAY.FROM.THE.MIRROR. We all know that moment…the one mid-tweeze where that one extra pluck sends our statement eyebrows to some kind of sperm-like situation that won’t grow back until the summer. And to make things worse, despite personal reservations about obvious inevitabilities, we continue to pluck to “just even them out,” leaving ourselves a bald browed and completely devastated. You knew better.

Anyway, todays brow mantra equals the bushier the better, so be extra careful when taming those unruly few. I happen to be the owner of a wiry but full-ish pair, that seem to grow more like weeds than standard eyebrows. So as I could probably quite literally get tamed on a weekly basis, I’ve had to add a few items to my beauty “tool belt,” that have rapidly become more necessities that nice-to-haves.

As it turns out, there is quite the wide array product to help beautify your brows. Now we can’t all be Cara Delevigne, but who can fault us for trying! Here are my picks.

Smashbox Brow Tech Trio, $26

One of the most popular products for beauteous brows, this trio offers two shades of “hair color coordinated powders” along with a wax that helps to seal and hold your arches in place for long lasting wear. Choose from five color pallets to achieve the most perfect match.

Per-Fekt Brow Perfection Gel, $22

This silky smooth sculpting gel comes in three tinted hues, and a neutral clear version. A more natural approach than many brow pencils and gels, it subtly tints while taming and shaping those unruly strays. Perfect for the low maintenance make up wearer that just wants to add that polished touch to their

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, $18

Now we are bringing in the “big guns.” Smudge free and waterproof, perfect for those gym goers that want to Soul Cycle in style. With the largest range of hues by far, this particular brow sculptor is ideal for those with more oily skin (me!).

Diorshow Brow Styler, $29

Who can forget their first Diorshow mascara splurge. Has the holy grail of mascaras come our with an equally amazing brow bestie? With one universally flattering shade coined “universal brown,” this sleek pencil is designed to work for all skin tones and hair colors.

Too Faced Brow Shaping & Defining Kit, $39

Yes it’s the priciest of the bunch, but it is also the most robust. Complete with a customizable color palette, highlighter, setting wax and a set of complementary brushes and a pair of tweezers, this is the total “one stop shop” for ensuring beautiful brows.
