Whether they're felt-tipped, brush-tipped, or feature the slightly odd-looking three-pronged tip, there's a brow pen out there for every brow. If you're looking for a simple way to create realistic 'hairs' and defined-but-not-blocky brows, these are our best brow pen recommendations.
Five Brow Pens For A Microbladed Eyebrow Effect
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pen
Fresh from the brow legends themselves is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pen. This one could very well be the frontrunner for our fav brow pen. It has a brush-tip that lets you draw superfine hairs that look natural even in the lightest of brows. The shade range is also a little wider, with nine different options that take in the all-important consideration of your hair undertone. It's also very pigmented, so do a few practise a few strokes on the back of your hand first. 👌
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pen, $41.00 from Sephora.
Urban Decay Brow Blade
One for those who enjoy a little from both worlds: the Urban Decay Brow Blade is a double-ended product featuring a waterproof micro pencil and an "ink stain" brush-tipped pen.
Steve Kassajikian, Urban Decay's Global Makeup Artist explained how to use it for those who are nervous. "Start with Brow Blade’s waterproof pencil to shape and outline your brows—the microfine tip is perfect for this. Then, create precise, hair-like strokes with the ink stain’s brush tip end to fill those brows in. This way, you really nail that defined, microbladed look."

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour
If you prefer a marker-style felt-tip on your pen-shaped beauty products, we'd recommend the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour. These are ideal for a slightly softer microbladed brow look, as they're a little sheerer than the others on this list.

Milk Makeup Triple Brow Pen
If you're pretty comfy around a brow pen, we reckon the Milk Makeup Kush Triple Brow Pen would be an ideal way to level up your microbladed eyebrow mimicry. This felt-tip is actually triple-pronged, meaning you can feather in three hair strokes at once. Again, start with a light hand because this one from Milk is pretty buildable.
Milk Makeup Kush Triple Brow Pen, approx. $30.00 AUD from Milk Makeup.
MCoBeauty Brow Stroke Feathering Brow Pen
For a brush-tip on a budget, we'd suggest the MCoBeauty Brow Stroke Feathering Brow Pen. The formula is long-wearing and waterproof and can be built up gradually for natural-but-defined looking brows.
MCoBeauty Brow Stroke Feathering Brow Pen, $14.00 from MCoBeauty.
