The last couple of years have been all about the brows. Full, bold brows had been on vacation since the 80’s, but they’ve definitely made a strong comeback, thanks in large part to celebrities like Cara Delevigne and Lily Collins.
I’ve never been a fan of thin brows, not even when they were in vogue, and the only thing I’ve ever done to them is plucking the hairs that sometimes grow out of their natural shape, that’s it. About a year ago, I started using Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil to lightly fill them in, from time to time, but it wasn’t until recently that I found a product worthy of my daily makeup routine: a tinted gel by Collistar, an Italian beauty brand.
This gel does to my brows exactly what I like, in just a matter of seconds: it makes them look fuller (thanks to the tiny fibers it contains) and naturally defined, while keeping them in place all day long. Plus, its small brush makes it very easy to apply without staining your skin.
I think a gel is the best option for those who have decent brows to begin with and like a natural look. If you have very sparse or thin brows, you can still use it, but it’s probably best to apply it on top of other products.
How do you guys like your brows? Natural or sculpted and defined? Do you change them depending on the look you’re going for? What products do you use? As I said, I’ve only used two in my whole life, so I’d definitely like to know more!
