Shaping eyebrows doesn't only depend on tweezing away stray hair; it also involves using brow gels to hold them in place.

Brow Gels

Brow gels are essential tools for anyone looking to shape and define their eyebrows. These gels come in clear and tinted formulas, allowing for a natural look or a more dramatic effect. They help hold brow hairs in place and can be used to manipulate the shape of your natural brow, creating the appearance of fullness and volume. Brow gels are beginner-friendly and perfect for quick, five-minute routines, providing a simple solution for achieving groomed brows.

Here are several recommended brow gels to start with:

Jones Road The Brow Gel

Jones Road The Brow Gel is a must-have for those with fine or sparse brows. At $24, it offers a clear formula and five subtle, buildable tints to shape and define your brows without damaging them. Enriched with glycerin and panthenol, it conditions hairs while providing long-lasting hold. Apply in short upward strokes using the included spoolie brush for best results.

Apply the gel using the long bristles, then sculpt and shape with the short bristles.

Refy Brow Sculpt Shape and Hold Gel

The $24 Refy Brow Sculpt Shape and Hold Gel offers a unique formula that combines the benefits of a wax and a gel. This brow gel keeps brow hairs firmly in place while being soft and easy to apply.
