Best Eyebrow Shaping And Brow Finishing Gel
We love to know all the makeup tips of the rich and famous - and one that's often overlooked is the use of a good eyebrow gel. Brow gels keep our eyebrows in place. They act almost like a hair gel product - you add a little to your eyebrows, it dries and your eyebrows remain perfectly groomed all day (or night!) long.
There are many brow gel products on the market. Many of them are clear, others are tinted and these are often the more favored brands. A tinted gel will cover up any flaws in your eyebrows, defining the shape and delivering a more sculpted look - especially when used with an eyebrow pencil.
The five best eyebrow gels are featured below. They're all top picks - a couple of them are products that I use on clients and/or recommend. Any one will do a great job of helping you create perfect eyebrows ... and they're all affordable!
Maybelline Brow Styling Gel
This is one of the best eyebrow gel products for those looking for a tinted brow gel. Taupe is a mild color that will add a hint of color without leaving your eyebrows looking as though you've drawn them in.
It's a simple task to apply - just sweep a small amount onto your brows with the wand and smooth your brows into shape. It's safe to use if you wear contact lenses and will keep your eyebrows in shape all day long. It won't leave as much definition color-wise on really dark brows but otherwise it works well, does exactly what you need it to do and it's cheap!
Anastasia Brow Gel For Eyebrow Control
This is the best selling clear eyebrow gel and a big favorite for many women - even the occasional men! It's perfectly clear and non-sticky and once applied and dry it holds the brow shape nicely for hours.
As with the previous product it's easy to apply and doesn't leave an obvious residue behind - it's 100% invisible. It's relatively expensive for a brow finishing gel but it will last a good while. It's especially good for those that have thicker or stubborn eyebrows - it keeps even the most wayward hairs in place. It's a use once and forget about it product - no need to re-apply or fuss whether your eyebrows remain neat and tidy - they will be.
bareMinerals Essential Brow Kit
This is more than just one the best eyebrow gels - it's a full eyebrow makeup kit. It comes in a choice of five different shades - brunette, strawberry blond, auburn, dark blond and ash blond and includes everything you'll need to achieve the perfect eyebrows.
It comes with a brow color, an eyebrow brush and a good quality brow gel - all three used together will define and style your brows ... and keep them in check. Apply the color first, using the included brush. Once you've applied the color, apply the gel over the top and you're good to go. The gel is clear so you can use it with or without the color - good if you fancy a natural look. Nice kit, plenty of scope and it will give you great looking brows.
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel For Eyebrow Control
This is Anastasia's tinted eyebrow gel and another best selling product from the brand name. It comes in a range of colors, from light through to dark so it will suit just about everyone. The gel works the same as the clear version - reliable and an invisible all-day-long hold.
Whilst it's not a cheap brow gel it's packed with good stuff that will not only keep your brows looking shapely - it will condition your brows and keep the brow line looking soft and supple. It's a made in the USA product, completely free of animal testing anywhere in the process and remains a highly popular choice for many women. It's a big favorite in professional circles - the reason being that it's about the best there is.
Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil & Gel
Another best selling eyebrow gel is the Revlon pencil and gel combination. It's a handy little makeup tool - at one end you get a colored pencil, the other is a good quality brow gel. It's available in three colors - brunette, dark brown and blond - and it's incredibly cheap for what you get.
The pencil is lovely and soft, allowing you to add color and definition to your brows - great for when you need a little extra 'hairs' that may have been accidentally removed by over-tweezing or waxing! The gel is non-sticky and can be counted on to keep everything in order all day - or all night long. Lovely makeup combo, sold at a price that makes it a top pick and one to pop in your purse.
