Well-drawn brows putting online advice to the test complete the look when it comes to good make-up.
And brow pencils help fill in the gaps.
L'OREAL PARIS SUPER LINER BROW DESIGNER PRO
My gal pals, who rely a lot on brow pencils, saw this L'Oreal Paris product and were keen to test it out.
It has got a brow pencil, a brow blender and a brow brush. Basically, it's an all-you-need when it comes to brows.
The blender works the colour in really well - and almost effortlessly - making it look super natural.
When I used the brow brush, I noticed it had surprisingly soft bristles.
Available at all Watsons, Guardian and Sasa stores, and selected departmental stores and supermarkets.
(1) K-PALETTE LASTING 2WAY EYEBROW PENCIL
On one end, it's a normal brow pencil. The other end is a powder brush, which helps blend in the dark pigments.
I've always needed a brow pencil to help fill in an empty patch on my left brow.
Most pencils have a colour pay-off that is too dark and harsh, which makes the filled-in bit look weird, compared to the rest of my brows.
This pencil gets the blending job done. It's not jaw-dropping though, because I found the colour a little stubborn and difficult to blend. But I guess that makes it last.
Available at all Sasa and BHG stores, selected Watsons and John Little stores. You can also get it online at www.beautycarousel.com
(2) STILA STAY ALL DAY PRECISION GLIDE BROW PENCIL
Think of it as drawing your brows with a felt pen because it feels almost the same and glides on rather effortlessly.
Depending on what you need, this brow pencil works if you want a more strongly-defined look and your brows are more sparse. It all depends on how much pressure you put on the pencil while drawing.
It's also waterproof and sweat-resistant, so you don't have to worry about looking like a scary clown with beetle brows.
Not totally outstanding but definitely one to have for daily use.
Available at Sephora
