Eyebrows are having a moment. Actually, they’re having several, thanks to celebs like Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins and the original Queen of Brows, Brooke Shields. Yep, nowadays a full, shapely set is a must and many women cite them as the one step in their beauty routine they never skip. Our editors are no different, which is why we’re sharing the products we swear by for face-framing arches. Whether you’re the proud owner of bushy brows or have resorted to micro-bladed tattoos, we’ve got the picks for you.


Brow Down

"I'm currently in the throes of correcting years of over-tweezing, aka growing out my eyebrows. The flat, tapered brush with this gel allows for super-precise and easy application, so my groomed arches look simultaneously full and tame."

—Angela Melero, Managing Editor

"I have seriously crazy mad-scientist brows, and not in a chic way. This gel keeps them in place so when they peek out from under my bleached fringe, it actually looks polished instead of disastrous."

—Erin Nicole, Senior Lifestyle Editor

"The golden boy of my makeup kit."

—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

"I have some of the unruliest eyebrows possible. I struggled for years to find the perfect product to keep them tame while filling in sparse areas, and that's exactly what this pomade does. The small pot goes a very long way."

—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor

"With its natural finish and staying power, this pencil ensures you'll never mess up your brows—even after a SoulCycle session and a Vixen workout. Yes, it lasted way past both."

—Samantha McDonald, News Editor

"I can't leave the house without penciling in my brows with this wonderful product. It's truly long-lasting, even if your skin is oily or you're sweating. The precise tip is easy to use for filling in and defining shape, and the pigment is buildable."

—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor

"This tinted gel gives me feathery, full brows without the hassle of drawing on each individual hair. The teeny wand is so easy to use."

—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor

"I feel like I look creepy with filled-in brows even though I wish I had a fuller, darker set. This clear gel is a recent favorite for a shapely look that's still natural."

—Laura Lajiness, Fashion Editor

"My brows are already pretty full, so I just need something to fill in a couple of sparse areas. This retractable pencil is so thin, it's easy to create brow-like strokes for a natural look—like I was born with even brows, not like I'm wearing a ton of makeup."

—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director
