I'm calling it. Nothing ruins your day faster than a bad brow.
Maybe not more than spilling coffee down your front. Or missing the train. Or forgetting it's your turn to do the school run. You get the idea.
If our eyes are the windows to our souls, our eyebrows are the curtains. And I've watched enough episodes of The Block to know window furnishings matter.
But how are you meant to know which eyebrow product to pick out of the 4,567,567 on the market?
To save you wading through countless brow gels, pencils, crayons, waxes, pomades and everything in between, I asked six Adore Beauties to share the epic brow product they always repurchase.
Here are their very excellent picks.
1. Eye of Horus Brow Define.
" OK, secret confession... I honestly used to HATE doing my brows. That was, until I tried the Eye Of Horus Brow Define eyebrow pencil. It is hands down one of the best brow pencils I have ever used! If you like creating a feathery/natural brow, then this will be your new BFF."
"My favourite feature is the slimline retractable pencil which allows me to create brush-like strokes with precision and ease. Hello, brows on fleek with MINIMAL effort." - Megan, Social and Content Coordinator.
2. Maybelline Brow Fast Sculpt Brow Gel Mascara.
"Need an affordable tinted brow gel that's a pretty decent dupe for more expensive versions? This is it, my friend. I swipe on the Maybelline Brow Fast Sculpt Brow Gel Mascara as my eyebrow tint starts fading between eyebrow appointments to add colour to my translucent brows."
"For the price, the shade range is flattering and the spoolie brush makes application really easy. The formula is quite thin, so my tip is to wipe excess product off before applying. When you're done, run a clean spoolie through your handiwork to evenly distribute the product for a natural look." - Amy, Senior Editor.
3. Benefit 24 Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel.
"If I had to pick one good thing that's come out of Melbourne's lockdown, it's that I've been going makeup-free everyday! Except for Benefit 24 Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel, which is my only non-negotiable product."
"If you have unruly brows like me, you'll love the unique comb applicator which makes it super easy to brush each hair into place. It also gets bonus points for not making my brow hairs go hard and crunchy like some other formulas." - Yasamin, Assistant Campaign Manager.
4. Tweezerman Slant Tweezers.
"Being an eyebrow artist, I have tried SO MANY different tweezers and nothing compares to the Tweezerman Rose Gold Slant Tweezer, my all-time favourite. Seriously, nothing is more frustrating than playing tug of war when you are trying to tweeze a hair."
"Tweezerman are my go-to because they are sharp, precise and easy to use. The slanted edge tip also makes it super easy to get those small, fine fluffy hairs. Winner!" - Lily, Customer Service Product Specialist.
5. Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil.
"I absolute adore the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil, I never leave it behind! I use it to make feather-like strokes, and outline and fill in my brows with such precision!"
"This is a must-have for anyone who wants to create their dream brow, whether you struggle to get the perfect arch or fill in gaps. Put simply, it's a banger of a product." - Millie, Customer Service Advisor.
6. IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil.
"As a victim of the overplucked 90s eyebrows era, I have struggled with finding the right brow product for years! Enter, the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil- this pencil has become my absolute go-to brow product."
"Don't ask me how they've created a 'universal' shade but it really is the perfect match for me! The amount of colour that transfers is also just the right amount to build a natural looking brow. But probably most importantly, this product really does last! I've been using it every single day for the last month and it hasn't run out yet!" - Tarsh, Customer Service Advisor.
