How to Choose the Right Brow Product
Few things can have as great of an impact as filling in your brows — making brow products the unsung heroes in our beauty bags. Whether you’re blessed with lavish arches and simply looking to groom or you’re working with sparse brows and desire fuller ones — the right brow product can do just that and more.
Read on to discover what to look for in a brow product and how to choose the right formula and shade with added benefits for your brows.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A BROW PRODUCT
The look you want to achieve will determine the product you use and whether you wear each of the formulas solo or in conjunction another. Generally speaking, pencils are great for precision and can be used to create hair-like strokes, while using pomades, fibre gels and clay are great to fill larger areas, build volume and create a shadow, giving the appearance of fuller brows. Brow gel or serum, whether clear or tinted, can be used to groom your natural brows and accentuate the individual hairs, or to set your powder or pencil in place.
Finding the right shade to blend in with your natural brow colour is key to effortless brows.
If you have dark hair, go for an exact match or a touch lighter than your natural shade.
If you’re a natural blonde, we suggest a hue two shades deeper than your natural colour.
If you have lightened or highlighted hair, choose a shade that matches your natural roots
If you're trying to re-grow sparse areas or simply looking to maintain your brow health, then you'll want to begin incorporating products rich in nourishing ingredients that help to condition your brows and encourage hair growth. Brow benefiting formulas that contain moisturising ingredients like coconut oil, vitamin E, or castor oil will all help to stimulate your natural hair growth while nourishing and conditioning. Moringa Oil, Abyssinian Oil, Laminara Digitata and Castor Oil are just a few of the hero ingredients for brow health within our brow suite. Get to know more about them below.
