Shaply eyebrows frame the eyes and give the face a polished look. An eyebrow pencil helps to fill in the gaps of overplucked brows, while powder gives a natural look to fuller brows.

Shu Uemura Eyebrow Liner ($230)

The seal brown colour is easy to apply, long lasting, and helps to create a natural eyebrow shape. The telescopic penholder is convenient to carry and can be refilled. It comes with a tiny brush.

Benefit Browzings ($270)

The pack comes with two different colours of eyebrow powder, two brushes in different shapes, and a tweezer. The powder is easy to apply and creates a natural look. The only shortcoming is its price.

Cyber Colors Auto Eyebrow Pencil ($38)

It comes with a handy brush and the pencil can be refilled. But the pencil's texture is too soft and breaks easily. The colour is solid, giving brows an unnatural look.

Laura Mercier Triangular Eyebrow Pencil ($140)

Its triangular shape lets you get a good grip for controlled application. The medium-hard texture yields long-lasting colour, especially for light and thin brows.

Smashbox Brow Tech ($190)

The dual compact contains a brown powder to fill in brows and a colourless wax to groom them. Best bet for taming messy brows.

Lancome Eyebrow Pencil ($110)

The dark brown pencil is firm, enabling defined lining. It also comes with a handy brush. Good for fair brows.
