Our top picks for sparse brows in need.
Words by Harper's Bazaar Staff
With so many options available, it can be tricky to narrow down which of the best eyebrow pencils is actually worth adding to your rotation. Some pencils are designed with ultra slim shapes that make it a breeze to mimic your natural hairs, while others feature slanted edges, or a bonus product in combination with a pencil for added brow customization. "It's all about big, fluffy brows without harsh edges," celebrity makeup artist at The Wall Group Katrina Klein previously told BAZAAR.com of this year's dominant eyebrow trend. Using a brow pencil—and the help of its handy spoolie brush to keep hairs in place—is one of the quickest ways to add a boost of volume and definition to a few sparse areas, or generally thin brows. From tried-and-true brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit Cosmetics, Valentino Beauty, and more, we've pulled together 15 of the very best eyebrow pencils you can find on the market.
