RANKED: TOP 5 PRODUCTS FOR THOSE UNRULY EYEBROWS
If You Want Those Perfect Eyebrows, You Need These 5 Products!
By Kimberly Webber
(COSMO) - If you’re like me, then you’re constantly trying to improve your eyebrow game. From conditioning to tweezing, there’s nothing like walking out for the evening with perfectly shaped eyebrows that accentuate your eyes and make everyone turn their heads toward you.
However, it’s harder than it sounds. How do you get control of your unruly or wild eyebrows? What products do you use to make sure they look fabulous every day? I’ve spent too much money on products that don’t work or are too frustrating to use.
So, I decided to ask dozens of makeup artists what they think are the best eyebrow products on the market. That way, once and for all, I could shape the perfect eyebrows every time.
These are the five best eyebrow products that makeup artists will swear by…
“I carry at least two tins of Waxy Brow in every makeup bag. It’s a total game changer.” -Lisa Meske, Vogue
Liaison’s Waxy Brow is by far one the best eyebrow products on the market. While you may need to color, tweeze, pencil and shape your brows for days, it doesn’t matter if you can’t keep them in place! That’s where the Waxy Brow comes in. A few small strokes with the curved spoolie will help keep your brows in the exact shape you want them all day. While many women use pomade or soap to keep their brows in place, Waxy Brow is made from natural ingredients that don’t damage your eyebrow hairs. The combination Castor Oil, Betaine, and Proline not only help shape your brow, it actually conditions your eyebrow hairs so they stay consistently healthy day in and day out. Every makeup artist we talked to loved this product and couldn’t wait to share the secret 50% off discount code SECRET50. If you’re aiming for a busy brow or a perfect arch, Waxy Brow is the best way to keep your brows exactly how you intended.
By far, Liaison Waxy Brow, is the safest and most effective eyelash product EVER.
“Many people forget they can easily add shade to their eyebrows for a darker, more consistent look. This powder duo is perfect." -Melanie Rotko, Celebrity Stylist
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo comes with two shades that you can mix to find your perfect color. It’s a great way to guarantee your brows will look even and fabulous every day. After shaping your brows, add a small amount of powder to the hairs for a consistent color that will give your brows unbelievable expression!
“Whenever a client has thinner brows, I hand them this pen. It not only fills out your brows, it actually conditions them to grow longer and healthier. Simply amazing!” -Antonio Caccio, Paul Mitchell Artistry
You’ll soon learn Liaison is the go-to brand for eyebrows (and eyelashes). It’s all thanks to their conditioning philosophy. Not only do their products work, but with the addition of a patented Growth Bond, their products actually help your brow follicles grow longer and become healthier. The Microbabe Blade Pen is perfect for creating small hair-like strokes to create the illusion of thicker brows. However, the more you use it, the less you need it! The formula is packed with peptides and nutrients that stimulate hair growth and keep your follicles strong.
“It’s the simple things that can go wrong and ruin a perfectly good brow. One is picking the wrong tweezers.” -Marcus Marion, California Beauty
Surprisingly, one of the top recommended products from makeup artists happened to be one of the more obvious. However, it was the insistence on quality that shocked us. Of course, everyone who’s reading this article already has tweezers. BUT do you have stainless steel? If you don’t know the answer, that’s not good. Harmful metals can actually irritate the skin and cause more harm than good. Tweezerman’s Stainless Steel Tweezers also come with a laser-cut slant tip that’s lightyears beyond dollar store tweezers. It may not seem like a big deal, but the right tweezers can change your eyebrow game forever.
“Liaison is probably the best brow brand on the market. Their Brow Bond started it all. I recommend it to all of my clients.” -Lidia Marie, Chanel
You read that right: Liaison is probably the best brow brand on the market, and we totally agree. Their Brow Bond is a daily serum that helps condition and grow your eyebrow hairs for amazing length and strength. Using a peptide formula that protects, hydrates, and stimulates hair growth will give you healthier brows that are easier to shape. We cannot recommend this enough!
While we feel we recommended some great eyebrow products for fuller, darker brows, we believe Liaison's Waxy Brow was the top choice. We wanted to talk further with our reporter and makeup artist Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how Liaison’s Waxy Brow worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I’ve always had trouble shaping my brows. I have rather bushy eyebrows, which isn’t a bad thing, I actually prefer them over over-tweezed and shaped brows. However, my busy brows seemed impossible to control. As much as I shaped and powdered, halfway though the day I’d notice brow hairs frayed out or curled under.
I started using pomade as a solution, but soon realized it was damaging my hair follicles and making my brow hairs weak. I was at a loss for what to do.
Then, a co-worker and close friend came into work one day and I couldn’t help but admire her brows. They were busy like mine, but seemed to be perfectly shaped. I couldn’t help but notice how they stayed like that ALL DAY. When I asked for her secret she pulled out a tin on Liaison’s Waxy Brow. She told me it was the only thing that ever worked for her. So, I begged her to let me borrow it, but she declined. Instead she told me about the secret 50% off discount code SECRET50, and I ordered two tins immediately. LOL.
I received the package within two days and started using it that evening for a night out. The application is very simple, a few strokes across your brow help shape your brows and keep hairs exactly in place.
A combination of Castor Oil, Betaine, and Proline create a wax-like formula that helps keep brow hairs in place while conditioning them.
First add your desired coloring and shaping to your brows.
Spray a small amount of water on the wax and roll your spoolie into the wax.
Then, simply brush the spoolie through your brows in an upward direction, starting from the center of the brow and follow the natural curve of your brows.
It’s as simple as that. Your brow hairs should stay in place for the rest of the day. When you wash for your face at night, just you a small amount of face wash to wash out the waxy brow from your eyebrows.
Best of all, after several weeks of use, I noticed my brows looked healthier and even thicker than ever before.
I’ve been converted into a Waxy Brow believer, and hope you will, too.
