The new wave of brow gels are interesting. You can get different types. Super strong ones that set your eyebrows like glue. Ones with fibres that cling to brow hairs making them look thicker. Clear or tinted.
Clear was my preference, brushed through brows to keep everything in place. I find tinted brow gels tricky, easy to make smudges, particularly on the tail. But then it happened. Greys.
If you have any grey hair in your eyebrow area, a tinted brow gel is the answer. It coats and adds colour to eyebrow hairs in a way that brow powders or pencils can’t.
I’m currently using the Autograph Fibre Sculpting Brow Gel, £9.50, after Guardian beauty writer Sali Hughes recommended it in her column. Only two colour options – Light/Medium or Medium/Dark – but both perfect in tone, cool and grey, as brows must be. The brush is a little bulky, which makes precision application a challenge. But it gives brows colour and hold that lasts for a reasonable time.
I like it, I don’t love it. It’s not a patch on the Benefit Gimme Brow, £20. But is a decent option at an accessible price point.
