Beauty tips: How to use tinted brow gel
There are so many different brow products available. And while eyebrow pencils are fairly easy to figure out, brow gel (or brow mascara) can be rather confusing. What is its purpose? And isn’t mascara for lashes? It is, but brow mascara is a completely different product with its own, very important purpose.
Tinted brow gel is used to set your brows in place, add depth and keep them perfectly shaped all day. Plus, if your brows are sparse you can use brow gel to bulk them up, faking fuller brows.

For sparse brows, brush the front of the brows up, and then brush the tail down. For natural-looking brows, simply brush upwards!
I used the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows in Linda ($39, charlottetilbury.com)
Here are a few of our members favourite tinted brow gels:
Garbo & Kelly Brow Gel
“This product is such a godsend! I use it every day to slick down by brows and let me tell you once this product is on it stays on! The brow gel is clear and comes in a tube with a spoolie applicator. The applicator ensures that just the right amount of product comes out so you don't end up looking like you're into a greasy brow look.”. -bh’s Sam
LUMA Beyond The Brow Grooming Gel with Fibres
“I purchased the Beyond the Brow Grooming Gel in 'Medium Brown' and I can't get enough! It is the perfect colour to match my brows and by natural hair colour. The application couldn't be easier - with an inbuilt brush you don't even need to prep your brows. Just swipe it on in the direction of your brow hairs until you have reached the desired look. Once it's dried it lasts all day. This gel doesn't particular smell nice but the smell is not strong at all & is only noticeable if you purposely smell it. The packaging is simply perfect - a small tube with a twist off brush on one end.” - bh member APounder
Benefit Gimme Brow+
“I was never into filling my eyebrows on but one of my friend had this product and we were going out, she filled them in for me. At first i was a little unsure about the product but after seeing photos of me with my brows filled in i fell in love with this product straight away. I ended up buying this product and really love that i am able to use it lightly to have a natural look or when i'm going out i am able to really build it up so my brows really shape my face.
It's easy to apply with the gel at one end and the brow brush at the other - you are able to apply it and then brush through giving it a very even tone.” - bh member MikaelaaBrennan
