- Brow Pomades for Fluffy Brows
The 7 Best Brow Pomades You Need for Fluffy Brows
Fluffy, feathered brows are the latest trend taking over Instagram reels, Tik Toks and wherever else you get your #browspo. Sure, you can achieve something similar with bar of soap, but for a more polished and defined look, we recommend brow pomades.

How to create fluffy brows
So, got all the gear but no idea? Don’t worry. It’s super easy to achieve the fluffy brow look. Allow us to answer all of your FAQ's surrounding brow pomade and you'll be good-to-go.
What is brow pomade?
A brow pomade is one of the many makeup products you can use to sculpt and define your eyebrows.
It's a cream-based formula that's typically housed in a small, pocket-sized pot. Brow pomades are specially designed to supply concentrated colour, making them great for mimicking natural hairs, filling in sparse areas and defining the shape of your brow.
Whether you prefer a dramatic, defined look or a natural style that has a subtle hold, brow pomades are great option.
How do you use brow pomade?
Anyone can use a brow pomade and application is super easy.
First, you're going to want to get yourself an angled brow brush with short, stiff bristles. Dip the brush into the pomade and tap off any excess product on the back of your hand.
Using short, light strokes, start at the centre of your brow and draw individual hairs. Continue doing this towards the tails of your brows, filling in any sparse areas. For a natural look, try and create an ombre effect, where the centre of your brows is lighter than the arches and tail. If you like a statement brow, simply apply more pressure when mimicking hair strokes.
Take a spoolie brush and gently brush through the product to blend it with your natural hairs for an authentic finish.
Should I use a brow pomade or brow gel?
Brow pomades and brow gels are both great products that help to define and shape your eyebrows. While they may sound similar, they can provide very different results.
Brow pomades are the ideal option if your brows are very sparse. The creamy, wax-like formula makes it easier to mimic individual hairs and achieve your desired look, whether it be natural or bold. Not to mention, pomades can be touched up throughout the day as they offer a subtle hold that doesn't flatten hairs.
On the other hand, brow gels are the quickest and easiest way to swipe colour and volume through brows. Dubbed as the 'lightweight hairspray' for eyebrows, they're the best for taming unruly hairs and giving them a strong hold.
