What is better to fill in eyebrows? What do you recommend pencils or brushes? My eyebrows are shaped but they need to be filled in. I just don't know what to use. I have oily to normal skin maybe that will help when recommending products.

you have a couple of options.
there are powders, pencils, waxes, etc.
i personally fill mine with a pencil
and then i tap on some powder after to ensure it stays on. the pencil i use is a bit waxy,
some people like powders. they find that its more natural looking.
benefit has a brow kit
its a wax and a powder to set.
it worked pretty well. i couldnt wipe it off,
my only problem is the dark brown was waaay too red for me. if youre looking for a larger range of colors, look around
just search brows on the sephora search box
To fill in the sparse areas of my eyebrows, I use Anastasia's Brow Powder Duo which contains two colors of powder so you can mix the shades, if needed, to get your perfect shade match. I think brow powders are more natural looking than pencils and you can find this product at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P69
I hope this helps you.
Anastasia is well known as an expert in brow beauty, and has her own line of brow and eye products. She has Anastasia Brow Powder Duos, which is a little kit of 2 brow shades, there is 6 different duos to choose from, so you can pick your shade. Here is a link to the Duos: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P69
Hope this helps!
I have the same problem. I use both. I fill in with a pencil using small, light strokes then brush the brow hairs up with a spiral brush to soften the pencil marks. My favorites are either by Dior or Lancome. I use the pencil when I want strong defined eyebrows like going out in the evenings etc..
For everyday use I opt for the powder to be applied with a small angled brush for more softer natural look. I like the ones from MAC although Anastasia is considered the queen of eyebrows.
Either way, it is best to choose a shade or two lighter than your hair color. The darker the eyebrow color, the older one looks.
Best of luck with your search
