The 11 Best Eyebrow Pencils, According to Makeup Artists in 2020


When it comes to filling in and defining sparse brows, there are lots of products to choose from to get the job done. If you’re looking for a more natural, low-key look, a great eyebrow pencil might suit your makeup needs the best. It’s one of our all-time favorite methods for enhancing our brows, and also happens to be super simple to master. Although using a pencil with a spoolie tip (that fuzzy, tapered shaping tool that brushes your hairs into place) to create a fuller look might seem a little intimidating at first, it can be a great way to help give your face a little extra definition.

Chances are, if you can use a traditional pen or pencil, you’ll be able to use one of these—it’s all about the formula and the technique. Since it can be easy to go from 0 to 100 with your brows when filling them in—boxy brows are a definite no-no—we asked a few professional makeup artists about some of the pencils they swear by to create easy, natural-looking brows that still make an impact. Read on for the eyebrow pencils (and pens) from top brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Fenty Beauty, and more, that are on their short list of go-tos.
