The NYX Micro Brow eyebrow pencil is a favourite that will help you recreate the finest hair with its ultra-thin microtip. It's a double-ended pencil with a spoolie for shaping and blending and comes in gorgeous shades of brown. Great for filling in the tiniest gaps and sharpening brow arches. For dramatic effect, we recommend using darker hues of this eyebrow pencil.
Benefit's Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Deep Brown will burn a hole in your pocket, but it's arguably a favourite eyebrow pencil among makeup lovers and professional artists. The flat, slanted tip delivers a buildable, waxy finish: use its flat edge to fill in big gaps, and the sharp tip to draw fine lines. We love how the packaging pops.
