Brow makeup as a category has expanded dramatically in the last few years, wouldn't you say? Pencils, pomades, powders, pens, tinted gels, fibre brow-builders, serums, highlighters – oh my! So the Lipstick League wants to know, how many products do you use on your brows on a daily basis?
I use one or two. Always, always, always my Amaterasu Liquid Brow Pen in Brunette, a genius, sheer, buildable cool dark brown brown, to fill in, thicken and define my naturally sparse (overtweezed once in my 20s) over-thin brows. And lately I've been augmenting with light lashings of the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows in Cara, a rather warm dark brown (hence only light lashings) to add subtle dimension by defining the hair. (Despite the disappointingly warm hue of the shade, I very much like the tiny, skinny brush that delivers a glob-free application.)
