two products that’ll trick people into thinking you were born with full ones.

Here's the truth about my beauty routine: Even if I leave the house without makeup—which is most days, since I spend my mornings changing my outfit a hundred times—I still always find time to fill in my eyebrows. I know, you feel naked without your under eye concealer, your foundation, or your eyeliner. Filled-in brows not only frame your face, but they noticeably enhance your other features.

So when I ran out of my trusty brow powder I went on a hunt for something new and better. Here are my findings.

The Product: Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow, $20

The Promise: An eyebrow filler that lasts all day, is waterproof (revolutionary, right?), won't smudge, all the while lengthening brows.

The Result: Emma. Watson's. Brows.

Use It: If you're planning on getting in a water fight (jk, but you can), if you've got a few extra minutes to apply it with an angled brush (it's impossible to put on with just your finger). Tip: Make sure you get the right color and that you don't apply too much at once.

The Product: Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, $32

The Promise: An easy-to-control brow pencil that gets the job done in one step, plus a brush at the other end to keep things extra neat.

The Result: Thicker, fuller, sleeker brows.

Use It: If you're the kind of person who is too lazy to deal with fusses and brushes. You'll still get great results even if you're not exactly an eye makeup application pro. This angled pencil is like Geico—so easy a cavewoman could do it.
