As I discussed in a previous post, full brows are still on trend this season and for those of us who are not blessed with full brows or who have over plucked over the years, makeup comes to our rescue with a wide range of products!

- eyebrow gel: it looks like mascara and comes clear or tinted. It is very useful for those with naturally full and unruly brows. It will keep them in place and eventually add a bit of color. My favorite one is the clear one from Essence;
- eyebrow pencils: very handy and precise tools, they are especially good for a dramatic look. Just draw small hairs just like your own to make it look as natural as possible. My favorites are Catrice EyeBrow Stylist and Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil;
- eyebrow powder: for a more natural look we use specific powders or even eye shadows. we apply them with a small angled brush in small strokes in the direction of your natural hair. You can set your work with with clear mascara. This is the method I prefer and I use the powder included in the Elf Eyebrow Kit.
- eyebrow wax: is applied the same way as a powder but stays put longer and can be used as a base for powder itself.
Regarding color, dark haired girls should go with a shade lighter than their haircolor, whereas blondes should go 1 or 2 shades darker than their haircolor. Also, when picking a color, stay away from warm tones and go for cool browns.
