The 8 Best Eyebrow Gels of 2022

KOSAS, Glossier, Anastasia

Whether they’re big and bold or thin and precisely tweezed, we all love to keep our brows well-groomed. Especially if we spend a lot of time and effort shaping them into a perfect arch. It is natural to want to keep them perfect for as long as possible. Luckily, the best brow gels can keep your brow hairs neatly styled long after application, while adding welcome definition.

While trends like bushy brows have passed, one thing remains the same year after year: keeping your brows in place. This is where the palmade type product comes in. Eyebrow gel is used to heal and tame unruly eyebrow hair, according to a professional makeup artist Kierra Lanice Wray. “Often our eyebrows grow in different directions, so a good brow gel or wax can help redirect them to help them lay and stay exactly where you want them.” She explains that, like mascaras, brow gels can come in different colors to better match your hair and/or cover grays. Some formulas even thicken to give the appearance of fuller brows (who doesn’t want Brooke Shields brows)

When using brow gel, Wray recommends starting your routine with the product. “Yes, even before the complexion [products]. This helps maintain the integrity of the product itself (if you bought a clear brow gel, you want it to stay that way),” she explains.

According to Wray, you should start by “brushing against the grain or in the opposite direction to how they naturally grow to make sure they’re coated with the product. Then, brush the brows up and out in the shape of your choice, but work fast as they dry quite quickly, from there continue filling in with a brow pen or pencil, or leave as is, continuing on eyes or complexion.

How to choose the best eyebrow gel for you

When shopping for brow gel, Wray says the two things to look out for are the consistency of the formula and the bristles on the brush. “You want a gel that has a slightly thicker consistency and a brush/applicator that can comb/brush the texture of your brows well.”

Also, keep in mind, adds Wray, what you want your eyebrows to look like. “If your brows are thin and dull, opt for a tinted and volumizing formula. If they are naturally thick and dark, opt for light. If you’ve changed your hair color or let’s say you’ve found a few gray eyebrows, go for a tinted formula that lasts!
