Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil, P1,660
Like the OG in silver, the rose gold version of Precisely, My Brow gives 12-hour wear and has the same waterproof, long-wearing formula. It’s perfect for the Philippines’ unpredictable weather and can definitely survive the combination of masks, face shields, and intense humidity.
If you’re not sure how to draw fuller brows, Benefit PH’s National Brow Artist, Czari Domingo, shares her go-to routine for her signature bushy, brushed up brows:
I prefer a full, feathery look so I start by laying all my brow hairs in place using Benefit’s 24-hour Brow Setter. This makes it easier for me to see the sparse areas, and it keeps me from applying too much product since I can just focus on the parts that need to be filled in. To keep brows brushed up all day, I use my finger to hold them in the direction I want them to stay as the gel is drying. It’s literally like hairspray for the brows, but without the stiff, crunchy feeling. BTW, make sure your brows don’t look too flat by avoiding pressing the tips of the hairs to your forehead.
Next, I use Precisely, My Brow pencil to lightly draw brow hairs in the direction of the hair growth, concentrating mostly at the front of the brow and on areas that may be a little patchy. A tip I learned to keep the pencil’s tip as precise as possible is to gently tap it onto a flat surface before every use. This helps give you the thinnest, most natural-looking strokes, and it really makes a difference for the finished look. When I have a bit more time, or if I’m just feeling a little extra, I sometimes use two pencil shades to add more dimension to my brows. Remember: Use this pencil for drawing strokes, not for shading or coloring sparse areas. This will help your brows look more natural and will also extend your pencil’s life.
For an even more natural look, I like to add fullness and texture with Gimme Brow+. It’s a tinted brow gel that comes in 10 shades and has microfibers that quickly give volume to my brows. I love that it has a tiny brush that makes it mess-free and so easy to apply. This product really gives me the fullness and fluff that makes a feathered brow style look its best.
