Perfectly groomed eyebrows can knock years off – they frame your face, accentuate your eyes, and add structure and youthfulness.
Have you ever seen the doctored pictures of celebrities without eyebrows? Trust us... brows are important! But, with so many tools and products on the market, it’s hard to know what you really need. Get the right toolkit and you can skip the salon and perfect your brows at home.
Whether you’re looking to add fullness, shape or define your arches, we’ve got you covered with our list of the 10 essential eyebrow kit products for your brows to look their best.
10 essential eyebrow kit products
Tweezerman professional slant tweezer
You may wax, thread or use hair removal cream to shape your brows but no beauty kit should be without a trusty pair of tweezers to grab pesky, rogue hairs.
Invest in a good quality pair and they will last you a lifetime. These ones are perfectly angled for precise hair removal and control.
Precision brow scissors
To keep your brows looking tip-top, keep them trimmed. Trimming the hair keeps your brows looking neat and tidy and we think sharp brow scissors are an absolute must-have.
Don’t even attempt a trim with anything else! These ones are affordable, pretty and stay super sharp.
Tweezermate 10x lighted mirror
A tricky part of DIY beauty is actually being able to see what you’re doing. A magnifying mirror will enable you to see the tiniest of hairs and get precise with your brow regime.
Suction cups on the back mean you’re able to stick it to your bathroom mirror for hands-free grooming.
NYX Professional Makeup micro brow pencil
This double ended brow pencil has a spoolie at one end and a fine tipped pencil at the other so you’re able to brush through brows and add definition.
The narrow tip is perfect for mimicking individual hairs to avoid them looking drawn on.
Anastasia Beverly Hills brow powder duo
The best way to add fullness to your brows is by using a brow powder.
Big, bold brows came back into fashion after plenty of us over-plucked in the '90s so if you’re a little short on natural growth, fake it with a powder.
Morphe M158 angle liner/spoolie brush
An angled brush is ideal for applying brow powder. The shape enables you to add colour, depth and fill in any gaps with accuracy.
Remember to use a light touch and keep brushing your brows through to spread the product evenly.
Benefit Gimme Brow+ volumising eyebrow gel
The key to natural looking brows is texture and plenty of it. Nothing looks more fake than a painted on brow that is flat to the face.
To keep your brows bushy we suggest this thickening, tinted brow gel with tiny fibres to give buildable texture and colour.
NYX Professional Makeup control freak clear eyebrow gel
If understated brows are more your style you can’t go wrong with a clear brow gel.
Keep hairs polished and in place with this affordable option; it’s got rave reviews for good reason and will keep brows from budging all day.
Eylure Dybrow permanent eyebrow tint
If you choose not to wear make-up but want to look more ‘put together,’ a brow tint will add colour and thickness to sparse brow hairs without the fuss of putting make-up on every day.
Use this dye every six weeks and it’ll make brows appear fuller with zero effort.
Revolution eyebrow pomade
The smudge-proof formula of brow pomades make them great for all-day wear.
Not the easiest of products to master but with a light touch, some practice and an angled brush, you can get flawless, full bodied brows with this make-up bag must-have.

Before pursuing a career in beauty journalism, Emma worked as international cabin crew for over 4 years. Travelling around the globe and working night flights across several time zones at once, she is the perfect person to judge whether makeup and skincare claims actually hold up. If you want to know which foundations last 18+ hours or how to keep your lipstick looking flawless in 40º weather, she’s your go-to girl.
Emma’s flying career came to an end when she realised that beauty journalism was her true passion and she undertook internships across publications including Vogue, Elle, The Telegraph and Glamour. She was then taken under the wing of Funmi Fetto, Contributing Beauty Editor at Vogue where Emma assisted with Funmi’s debut beauty book, Palette.
Her big passion is finding truly beneficial skincare but, when she’s not testing out the latest products, you’ll find her trying to muscle her way into London’s best restaurants or relaxing at home in Devon with her dogs.
