Using a waterproof eyebrow pencil will be one of the best makeup decisions you will ever make for a couple of major reasons. First, unless you have filled in brows that are dark, you must choose a pencil as a makeup must-have. If your brows don’t show on your face or if they are not filled in, your makeup will look unfinished. Even if you are a makeup minimalist, filling in the brows is a must.
For this eyebrow discussion, let’s compare the advantages of using one over the other. Each one has advantages, but one far outshines the others as you will see.
Pros & Cons for Using a Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil

Which is better? As a #bellabeauty tip, bella girls think that pencils far outweigh powders. Hear us out on this. Although powders can look soft and fill in nicely, they don’t last. Bella girls like something you can put on it the morning and it will last all day. Pencils if applied correctly far outlast powders.
Which lasts longer? Hands down, pencils will last longer than powders. Even better, a waterproof pencil is in it for the long haul. The waterproof pencil will make the trip from breakfast to cocktails and be the last woman standing.
Which applies better? Now this was a tough one until the Bella girls tried their very special pencil. Up until that point, powder would have been easier to apply. But with this new waterproof eyebrow pencil formula, it goes on like velvet, doesn’t look like a pencil and blends perfectly.
Which looks the most natural? If it had been 3 years ago, we would have said the powder. But the advances in technology have allowed us to create a waterproof pencil that goes on like powder. It has something to do with the combination of waxes with the color. By far, the waterproof pencil looks more natural.
So the little comparison is over, but we think you will agree that the waterproof eyebrow pencil wins because it lasts longer, applies better and looks natural. Just remember apply with short strokes and brush upwards.
