No matter what the trends dictate, I like to keep my eyebrows thick. I’m the girl who borders on Eugene Levy-like brows if no one stops me or gives me feedback. Fortunately, most days I have some self-control. But I still keep them thick and full, and it takes the best products to get them that way and keep them that way.
There are many brow products out there, and some do a good job. But for my unruly and curly brows that have a mind of their own at times, I need products that do a great job.
And these five have been an eyebrow dream for me all summer and fall.
UOMA Brow-Fro Blowout Gel
Some gels don't fill but they are like titanium on the hold. Pencils fill well but don't keep your hairs in place. This gel not only has the staying power that you need all day, it has the fill that makes it almost a two-in-one product. I get my brows done in less than five minutes with this blowout gel.
Arches & Halos Hold Tight Water Resistant Gel Clear
Before discovering this clear gel, I was using Got2B hold spray on my brows. No judgement. But a lot of gels won't hold through a 12-hour day of activity, and some with great hold will flake. This mega hold gel keeps my little hairs in place until I remove it, and doesn't get crusty around my eyebrows.

Benefit Cosmetics Brow Styler
This brow duo styler has something for everybody. While the pencil side gives you options to do fine or thick strokes, I love the powder side best. It might seem like an odd product to use on brows solo, but I like how easily it applies. I top if off with gel and I'm done in minutes.
Glossier Brow Flick
Now that I've learned from Tracee Ellis Ross that this brow filler can also be used to create a mustache, I'm even more excited for it. That probably seems weird but you never know when you'll need to draw on some faux peach fuzz. But more importantly, it's great for filling in my brows. The lightest stroke gives you serious fill so go easy on the first application until you find your rhythm.
UOMA Bro-Fro Baby Hair
This fine hair pencil is for the brow expert, and apparently me. This gets into my crazy long hairs, my little corner hairs, and lets me shape my arch like a professional makeup artist. I'm able to get my brows done in minutes without going over board with filling in, thanks to this perfect little pencil.
