The precision point makes thin or thick application simple, says Hannah Terrett, Benefit Australia’s National Brow Artist, who advises “stamping out the line before connecting the dots for a controlled, flawless finish”. Bourjois Brow Natural Eyebrow Felt-Tip Pen is a great budget buy.

Use on brows that are flat and need a lift. We love NARS Brow Defining Cream.

Ideal for dark or coarse hair as it gives a soft, fluffier finish. Try shu uemura Brow Palette.

Great for oily skins and skimpy, patchy or scarred brows, as “the gel adheres to skin, offering staying power through the day,” says Terrett. Give Benefit Ka-Brow! a go.

Best for uneven, shapeless or undefined brows. We recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz.

Try this: “If you’re worried about too-dark inner corners, use powder on the front portion for a soft finish, and your regular formula on the arch and tail,” suggests Benefit’s National Brow Artist Hannah Terrett.
