Very few beauty regrets are as long lasting and unanimously agreed on as the early 00s phenomenon where we all (yep, no one was spared) butchered our brows into a thin weedy nothingness. Now, big, bushy, beautiful eyebrows are back on the agenda – but our overzealous plucking back in the day means that we might not have much to work with. Well, you’ve heard the saying: fake it until you make it, right? Here are three brow gels that will give you some strong, sassy arches that don’t need no man…
BROW GELS FOR EVERY BUDGET
By Maybelle Morgan, 13 February 2018
What if we told you that your brows could undergo a volume glow-up, plus get actual TLC in the process, all for under a 10 bucks? Form an orderly queue. Rimmel is offering the trifecta with its cutesy compact brow gel. The gel formula adds thickness and definition, and is infused with nourishing argan oil to help those strands grow thick and tall.
The art of brow coiffing requires jedi-level mastery and the right tools. Thankfully, this double-ended beauty meets all the necessary requirements to get you from brunch to beers. The tinted cream also gives brows natural definition and added thickness, while the clear gel neatens up the shape and hold. Expect to still be set way, way into the PM.
Eyeko has previously received props from Alexa Chung for its liners, so we’re happy trusting it when it comes to our brows, too. And its formula brings all the goodies, containing ginkgo biloba and keratin (you know, the protein that strengthens hair), as well as an oh-so-teensy tapered wand for accuracy and added styling finesse.
