Our Best Brow Tips
We shared our picks for the best brow fillers in our latest Momtrends MVP's Beauty must-haves!
If you've been on TikTok at all in the past couple of years, you know that full brows have been where it's at. Sure, the 90s are back with a vengeance, but thankfully, most of the kids are leaving that decade's over plucked brows trend good and buried.
Now even if you don't have the naturally full brows you once did, there are plenty of tips and tricks to give your brows a fuller appearance!
Once upon a time, in fact, I actually chose to wax off half my brows they were so full. That is definitely not the case these days. Bwah! But I'm not stressing and after you read today's Momtrends MVP'S beauty edition you will understand why.
Sure, those youthful brows of ours are a thing of the past, but that's ok. They may never be what they once were, but they can still look pretty darn good my friends! Read on to see how you can get fuller brows...
Why You Need A Brow Filler
There are plenty of products on the market geared toward helping you achieve lush brows, but they aren't miracle makers. Even if you're able to get back some growth with a serum, you're still probably going to need to fill in those brows a bit.
And that brings me to my favorite trick of all, and today's Momtrends MVP's topic of choice, the best way to fill in eyebrows. There is a slew of different kinds to choose from. So, whether a pencil, gel, or powder is your poison, you have lots of brow filler options...
Best Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
If you're anything like me, you wouldn't mind a little volume in your brows just like you don't mind a little volume in your hair. This gel not only gives you natural-looking color as a filler, but it makes your brows appear lusher too thanks to the fibers!
I love how you can really build your brow color with this fiber gel. You don't have to worry about overdoing it with your first stroke. You can really customize your look!
This brow gel has been a part of my everyday makeup routine for years for a very good reason, it works!
Best Eyebrow Fiber Filler
As you go through this list of top brow product picks, you will probably notice that several of them are fiber-based. That is because they look like real hair and stick to your brows in a lasting way.
This Full Brow Brow Fibre is no exception! I love how natural looking it is. And if you happen to have a gray hair or two in your brows, it takes care of those too.
The mini sized applicator brush spoolie allows you to decide how intense you want your brow game to be and helps you grab each tiny hair.
Best Cake Eyebrow Powder
If you like a more groomed look, a cake powder palette like this Anastasia two-shade eyebrow powder compact might be the way to go. Not only does it come with a couple different shades that you can custom blend for yourself, but it is offered in 11 different versions, so you can really customize your shade.
You can go dramatic or totally natural with this product which I love. An everyday look is more natural obviously. But this compact is such a great product for photos or even stage performances too.
I'm a dance mom and love how I can easily shape a strong brow with this easy-to-blend formula that doesn't disappear under the lights!

Best Waterproof Eyebrow Gel
I don't wear much makeup when I'm taking a fitness class. In fact, I barely wear any, but I do like to fill in my brows a bit. It's my one don't miss step to looking pulled together. That being said, what is the point of putting on any makeup product before you sweat if it isn't waterproof?
Enter this NYX game changer. The applicator takes a bit of practice to get used to, but once you get it...you get it. Or you could just keep a spoolie on hand like I do, ha!
I love how I can wear this eyebrow gel to a spinning class and not worry about it sweating off!

Best Eyebrow Pencil
If a more precise look is what you're after, an eyebrow pencil is the way to go. And Charlotte Tilbury's Brow Lift gets a gold star from this girl!
You run the risk of a harsh look with some eyebrow pencils, but not this one. I love that all it takes to achieve natural-looking filled-in brows are a few upward strokes! Fluffy brows tout de suite!
And it's very versatile too. Even if you want a stronger look than your everyday soft brow, you can achieve it with this pencil too! You just press a little harder! Easy peasy!

Best Eyebrow Gel to Cover Gray
I'm not sure why it never occurred to me that I might get gray in my brows considering I've had it in my hair since my twenties, but a friend who found her first recently told me about it and I immediately started researching brow products that are great at covering grays!
And I am happy to say that I found a winner. I love how this Tarte brow gel tackles that pesky gray hair right at the root.
And in a pinch, you can use it on the roots growing out from the top of your head too, bwah. Double score!

More Tips for Fuller Brows
And once you find your brow filler of choice you can wrangle wayward hairs with eyebrow gel..I will never, I repeat, never wax my eyebrows again as I am hanging on to every single hair left in those brows, so I tame them with a clear eyebrow gel when necessary.
Best Clear Eyebrow Gel
You don't need a clear eyebrow gel if you're already using a tinted gel, but if you go the pencil or powder route, this product is the perfect finishing touch!
I know it's not technically a brow filler, but I thought I would tack on a couple of products to help take your brows to the next level.
I love how I can brush up my brows and keep the look nice and in place with this gel! And it's a total steal too. Drugstore beauty for the win!
Best Eyebrow Serum
And I know I mentioned using a serum earlier as not the only trick you should try, but it's definitely one worth adding to your arsenal. You don't have to take skimpy brows lying down. Try out a product specifically formulated to help you grow your brows.
Some growth serums can be irritating, but I love how gentle this vegan formula is! Get ready for denser brows complete with more volume.
Those sparse hairs of yours should expect some brand new hair friends! Now, it's not exactly a budget find, but considering some of it's competitors are almost double the price, you get a great bang for your buck!
I do believe youthful, fuller eyebrows are within your grasp now! Remember, filled-in brows, fabulous sunnies, and a strong lipstick can do wonders for your day...
