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.

Milani isn't sold at Sephora, but they have a great eyebrow set! I think that they only have one and it works wonders!

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:

I hope this helps you. :smileyhappy:

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:


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  :smileyhappy:
