I am very new to filling in my brows. I have naturally thick and dark brows so it wasn’t something I thought was necessary. However, my brows do have some patchy spots in them that I wanted to fill in. I figured I would start with some products from e.l.f. Cosmetics since they’re so affordable. I bought the Instant Lift Brow Pencil in Neutral Brown and the Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Both of these are $2.00 apiece.

I really love both of these. I have used the Clear Brow & Lash Mascara in the past and I’ve always liked it. It does a fantastic job holding the brows in place. The Instant Lift Brow Pencil is excellent, especially for beginners. The shade Neutral Brown is perfect for me and the color is buildable so I don’t have to worry about it getting out of control. I prefer more natural brows over the popular “Instagram” brows and this pencil is perfect for that. If you’re completely drawing on your eyebrows this might not be the best choice for you but it works great to just fill in sparse areas. This pencil isn’t waterproof but I’ve had no problem with it smudging, even when I accidentally touch my brows but I do put a layer of the clear gel over it.
Both of these products are a win for me. They’re affordable, user friendly, apply quickly and easy to find online and in stores. I’m pretty happy with these but I’d love to know what your favorite brow products are! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
