Industry insiders have deemed the “brushed-up” brow the most on-trend eyebrow aesthetic.
“Fluffy brows are here to stay,” explains Shaughnessy Otsuji, owner and restorative tattoo artist at Studio Sashiko. “Everyone seems to be embracing the natural-looking, soft and feathery brow these days.” She explains that a slightly straighter brow shape (as in, less of a dramatic arch) with lots of hair-like texture and a “lifted tail” to accentuate the eye shape is undeniably popular.
So how do you achieve the coveted natural and voluminous look? A swipe-on brow gel that separates and combs individual strands, while holding them into place is key.
“By using a brow gel, you can achieve a fuller looking brow as the hairs are redirected upwards to take up more space in the brow area,” Otsuji explains. “I apply a brow gel by brushing forward — in the opposite direction of hair growth — to coat the hairs fully. I let the gel set until it is slightly tacky, and then brush the hairs back and upwards to create more thickness and texture.”
Forget the days of over-plucking and sharply manicured edges! Here are 10 one-swipe brow gels — both tinted and untinted — to help you achieve the fluffiest brows ever. Finish up the look by filling in any areas of sparsity with ultra-fine, feathery strokes from your favorite felt-tip brow product or pencil.
