15 Best Eyebrow Pencils to Get Bigger, Thicker Brows
July 12, 2021
Even brow newbs can handle these.
IMO, filling in your eyebrows is the most important part of your entire makeup routine (after applying mascara, of course). And the key to getting bomb eyebrows? A fire eyebrow pencil. The right pencil will literally take your arches to new heights and fill in even the sparsest of brows. Meanwhile, an eyebrow pencil with a subpar formula will have you legit looking like you drew them on with a colored pencil. But with so many eyebrow pencils on the market, where TF do you even start? Thankfully for you, I found the very best eyebrow pencils that will make your brows thicker and fuller without budging. So stop wasting your money on crappy formulas and try out one of these, ahead.
Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler
Is there anything Rihanna can’t do? Seriously, though, this eyebrow pencil comes with a superfine tip and a creamy formula that helps you create natural-looking brows with ease. The formula’s also waterproof and smudge-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your brows fading away.
Uoma Beauty Brow-Fro Baby Hair
Whether you want fluffy, natural-looking brows or sculpted, IG-girl arches, this eyebrow pencil is for you. The soft-powder formula allows you to build your brows, whatever vibe you prefer, without worrying about flaking.
Smashbox Brow Tech To Go
This two-in-one eyebrow pencil is a game changer. On one end, there’s a fine-tip pencil that helps you mimic the appearance of your natural brow hairs, and the other end, there’s a gel that locks everything into place (no crunchiness included).
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil
Have you ever filled in your brows, glanced in the mirror, and noticed that they look kinda fake? And no matter how much you try and blend, those harsh lines are still freaking there? Yeah, that nightmare comes to an end with this eyebrow pencil. The combo of powder and wax in the formula allows you to create natural and full brows, and the spoolie at the other end of the pencil easily blends everything out.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Sourcils Design 3-in-1 Eyebrow Pencil
Okay, this eyebrow pencil is definitely pricey, but I swear it’ll give you the brows of your dreams. The pencil glides right on (making definition a total breeze), the spoolie blends everything out, and there’s even a brow highlighter to help structure your arches.
Ofra Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil
Normally I’m not a fan of anything touted as “universal” (there’s no one-size-fits-all in makeup), but this medium-brown pencil has surprisingly good range. What you’ll love about it: The waxy tip clings to your brows and works to shape the hairs as you fill them in. Is it universal? Eh, probably not, but for most shades of brown brows, this is a good option for the price.
Nyx Professional Makeup 3-In-1 Brow
This brilliant trifecta of brow products has everything you need packed into one little tube. Wanna fill in a few hairs? Use the retractable long-wear pencil. Need to shade a sparse spot with brow powder? No problem, use the sponge-tip applicator with built-in powder. And if you want to lock everything in place, swipe on a few coats of the tinted brow mascara. If only every makeup product was as multifaceted as this one.
Essence Eyebrow Designer Pencil
Don’t let the fact that this eyebrow pencil looks like a toothbrush stop you from trying it or you’ll miss out on a really good bargain (hi, less than $2, what?). If what you’re looking for is buildable color and a built-in brow brush, this one, which has 4.3 stars on Ulta, will get the job done.
It’s the super-fine tip on this pencil that makes it a go-to for virtually every makeup artist and beauty vlogger. When drawn on in faint, tiny strokes, this pencil, which comes in 10 shades, replicates the look of actual brow hairs.
L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer
This fine-tip pencil is ideal for those with thinner brows who still want natural-looking results—something a thicker pencil can’t give you. It’s an excellent dupe for the cult-classic Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil (although not quite as creamy-smooth), and at a third of the price? I’ll take them all, thank you.
Too Faced Chocolate Brow-nie Cocoa Powder Brow Pencil
Kind of like with a calligraphy pen, the color concentration and application of this eyebrow pencil changes based on how you hold it. Use the pointed tip or straight edge for drawing lines, or use the flat angle to deposit the color without any harsh strokes. Oh, it also smells like brownies (hence the name), which is always a bonus.
Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro 4-In-1 Defining & Highlighting Pencil
The only brow tool you’ll need is this click-y pen that includes four different shades in one convenient eyebrow pencil. Use the two darker pencils to add dimension while you fill in your brows, and use the two lighter shades to clean up and highlight the edges.
Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil
This unique pencil is shaped like an oval, so in addition to giving you a sharp edge and pointed tip, it also offers you a rounded option for the most precise application. After it sets, this formula is waterproof and won’t break up or flake off even after long, sweaty hours of wear.
It Cosmetics Brow Power Perfector 5-in-1 Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil
This impressive formula applies like a pencil, finishes like a powder, and locks hairs in place like a gel. Seriously, you only have two minutes to shape your brows before the waterproof pigment sets your arches in place for hours. Did I mention the formula also contains biotin to enhance your brow hairs at the same time?
Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil
The diamond-shaped tip of this eyebrow pencil allows for both shading and precise hair-drawing, but its unique spoolie is what really makes it stand out. The short, ball-shaped brush helps you focus on smaller sections for blending, which makes customizing your brow shape even easier.
