Well-groomed and well-shaped brows make a huge difference on one's overall look. "Your eyebrows do so much to shape your face," confirms celebrity makeup artist David Velasquez to Vogue. Velasquez, who's one of Jennifer Lopez's makeup artists, adds that fixing your eyebrows makes you look more awake and polished for those regular Zoom meetings. Also, since most of us are still wearing masks, our eyes and eyebrows do all the talking these days. Here are the top eyebrow pencils approved by celebrity makeup artists as told to Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for their brow products and the Brow Wiz has a cult following for being able to mimic natural hairs with its ultra slim tip. Plus, unlike most brands that have four color at the most, the award-winning Brow Wiz has a wider selection of 12 shades. It's also cruelty-free and vegan.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil
Hourglass' formula is a combination of wax and powder so while it may be on the pricey side, you don't need to use much of it, and you get a good color payoff with just one swipe. The tip is also slanted and wider which allows you to cover a bigger area than most.

The name says it all. This brow pencil is hard to mess up and perfecting your brows will be a breeze with its angled tip that you can create fine strokes with. It's also wide enough to fill in sparse areas efficiently.

Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Brow Pencil
For those with extremely sparse brows, this pencil's ultra-slim tip will allow you to draw tiny lines that will result in natural-looking eyebrows. It has excellent staying power, and the pencil is capless so for those who tend to forget to retract their pencil, you won't end up with a smashed tip.
