My Brow Besties

I'm eyebrow obsessed - always have been, always will be. As far as I'm concerned, the beauty market cannot introduce enough products to treat, condition, enhance, and style the brows. Keep. Them. Coming.

I recently shared a few of my favourite brow growth serums (see the list here!), so I thought it was about time I share my favourite products for shaping, styling, and fixing my eyebrows.

Tweezerman Slant Tweezers

When it comes to plucking, I've been using Tweezerman Slant Tweezers for years. It doesn't matter how many other brands I've tried, nothing quite hits the spot like a pair of Tweezerman tweezers.

The legendary Slant Tweezers (£22 Boots), renowned for their precision and quality, have won multiple awards and have been the choice of quality conscious consumers for over twenty-five years. They're great because they feature perfectly aligned hand-filed stainless-steel finished tips that make the plucking process less painful and help you grab the finest and smallest of hairs every time.

BBBLondon Brow Scissors

Scissors are essential to maintaining my eyebrows. I know some girls love the wild and bushy look but I still love to keep things neat. Because of this, I use BBBLondon's Brow Scissors (£15 regularly to keep my hairs trimmed and tidy.

The expertly-engineered Brow Scissors feature curved blades that hug the contour of the brow bone for easy and precise trimming. Not only do they do the job perfectly, they are super comfortable to hold.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow

A favourite brow enhancer I've been using for some time is Benefit's Gimme Brow (£23.50 It is an eyebrow-volumising gel that delivers fuller looking brows instantly.

Gimme Brow features tiny microfibers that stick to the skin and eyebrow hair, creating natural-looking fullness and definition. The product is distributed using a custom tiny, tapered brush that makes application easy, fool-proof, and mess-proof. It is also buildable and water-resistant, ensuring brows always stay in place.

The eyebrow gel, which is available in an impressive 10 shades, delivers a natural-looking tint, enhanced volume, and a long-lasting finish.

NYX Thick It. Stick It! Brow Mascara

One of the more affordable thickening brow treatments I use is the NYX Thick It. Stick It! Brow Mascara (£11

The vegan eyebrow mascara is infused with ultra-buildable, tinted, and hair-like plant-origin fibres that attached to eyebrow hairs to deliver a fuller brow that lasts for up to 16 hours.

Available in eight natural shades, Thick It. Stick It! Brow Mascara tames, styles, and thickens brows in minutes! The easy-to-use product is flake, smudge, and transfer resistant and its hair-like fibres can be built upon, helping achieve different levels of thickness.

Shavata Day-Long Brow Tint

Whenever I want a fuller brow that is fibre-free, I opt for the Shavata Day-Long Brow Tint (£21 The impressive tinting pen glides easily over each brow hair, providing instant colour and definition. It also gives the appearance of fuller brows as it tints those little light hairs that often go unnoticed.

The Day-Long Brow Tint is available in two shades - Dawn is a warm, honey blonde shade that works on lighter hairs and Dusk is a deeper shade perfect for darker hairs. The unique applicator tints fair hair as well as grey hairs, and it provides a natural looking finish that lasts all day!

No7 Eyebrow Precision Pencil

As for eyebrow pencils, I love the No7's Eyebrow Precision Pencil (£9.95 Boots) as it is super fine, quick to use, and helps create perfect definition.

The Eyebrow Precision Pencil is buildable and provides an easy and smooth application. The slim non-sharpen retractable tip creates natural-looking fine hair-like strokes which boast a 24-hour staying power (thanks to being sweat-proof, water-proof, and budge-proof!). It is available in five versatile shades and suitable for sensitive skin.

Authored Brow Gel

My eyebrows are always fixed in place using a good brow gel and my current favourite is the Authored Brow Gel (£18 It is a creamy and brush-able brow gel that keeps my eyebrows in place throughout the day.

It can be applied in two ways - with a light application for a natural but tidy brow or with a built-up application for a fuller and fluffier brow.

Made in the UK, the Authored Brow Gel is vegan, climate neutral, and made with 95% aluminium packaging.

Sienna X Sculpting Brow Pencil + Fixing Serum

The Sienna X Sculpting Brow Pencil and Fixing Serum (£20 is my perfect travel companion as it's a 2-in-1 product that sculpts and sets the brows.

The dual-ended eyebrow wand features a triangular-shaped eyebrow pencil at one end. This pencil helps create both precise hair strokes and softer shaded areas. At the other end of the wand is a fixing serum, which is applied using the included spoolie brush.

The Sienna X Sculpting Brow Pencil and Fixing Serum is easy to use and super effective, helping achieve gorgeous flawless eyebrows that have great lasting power.
