Whether you want in on the full brow trend or want to fill in some sparse areas on your brows, you’re probably on the prowl for an effective eyebrow pencil. These handy tools can add definition to your brows, but you need the right one. Some eyebrow pencils have a heavier color load, so you’ll be able to see the powder on your brows from 10 feet away. Those pencils don’t give you the natural and precise coverage that you need. That’s why we rounded up the best eyebrows pencils for you.
These aren’t the eyebrow pencils that you’re picturing, though. All of our picks are mechanical pencils, so there’s no pencil sharpener required. You simply roll them up when you start running low. These pencils have tips that have been shaped in teardrops and other shapes to give you the best application possible. You’re able to outline, fill in and, in one case, able to draw in tiny hairs to fill in gaps in your eyebrows. The pencils all have spoolie brushes at the other end for blending. Our picks come in a variety of shades, so you should be able to find one that matches your skin tone and brow color.
