If you know me, you know I have a set of brow products I am eternally loyal to. You can count them on one hand and I recommend them to ALL of my clients.
However… in the last few months, some of my favourite brands have exited the Australian market or been discontinued. This gave me the perfect excuse to see what else was out there so I did a call out on @browconfidence (as you do) to find out what everyone was using and have been testing recommendations as well as making my own discoveries during my brow sessions with clients.
Below are four that have impressed me and have been added to the rotation so you might even see them at work at your next appointment:
My favourite shade is 04 (black). It’s the holy grail for Asian brows and those with darker hairs who may be incorrectly using brown. The non-clumpy formula separates and sets hairs in place and it’s effective at covering greys as well as sparseness at the front of your brows (spot applying where needed, this is what I’ve been using it on myself for). A good alternative to Glossier Boy Brow in Black, which isn’t yet available in Australia.
With the felt tip, you can easily create subtle yet defined hair strokes especially when you want to re-create “sprouty” hairs at the front of your brows. I personally don’t use the sponge tip (with brow powder), however if you want to, it’s best to use an external brush for more precision and definition so hairs look like the real deal. I love the shades ‘Fling’ and ‘Taupe’.
Despite the surname, there is no relation between Tina and I (ha!) except that I love her pencils and we share a mutual appreciation for brows. This is a professional-grade tool that can only be sharpened with a blade but excellent for practised hands. It is truly the ‘it’ product for creating long-wear, high impact hair strokes that look identical to the real thing.
This is a French brow brand stocked in MECCA created by a makeup artist. It is on the pricier end for a brow crayon at $36, but if you are struggling to find a shade that exactly matches your brow hairs, give this range a try. They have shades like ‘Ash Blonde’, ‘Cold Brunette’, ‘Black’ and even ‘Grey’. I recommend sticking to the cooler tones, which look more natural and flattering. You also get the staying power of a waterproof formula here so your styling looks just as good at 2pm as it did at 8am.
