Eyebrows plays a important rule in makeup as they can change the impression of your face, so we should never give up to find a right eyebrow product to create your desired eyebrows. There are many eyebrow products on the market with different features and effects including eyebrow powder, mascara and tint. And the most common eyebrow product is a pencil type.

Eyebrow pencil allows you to draw ideal arches and fill in sparse brows easily, no matter the shape of your original brows. It’s easy to draw small details and create both subtle and dramatic finish. Eyebrow pencil can be also used together with a brush or eyebrow powder for more soft and natural looking.
