Brow Powder Vs Pomade: Understanding the Differences

With so many great eyebrow products available, it can be a little difficult to choose which ones are right for your particular brow goals. Some products are better suited for taming thick brows, while others allow you to build up thin brows. Brow powder and pomade, for example, are common cosmetics many use to fill and define their eyebrows. They’re both easy to use, so let’s take a look at the differences between brow powder vs pomade.

Brow Powder

What’s It For?

Eyebrow powder is used to give your brows a soft, natural appearance. Some brow powders even dry down with a slight sheen that will help your brows stand out when you’re creating a more glowy look. Our brow powder comes in different shades, including blonde, light brown, taupe, and raven, but you should choose the hue that most closely matches your hair. In fact, our formula is completely blendable, so you can combine shades to create your unique color.

No matter what type of eyebrows you were born with, brow powder can help you gain definition and a fluffy, but natural, look. This product is usually easy to wash off and won’t necessarily require any makeup remover products.

How Do You Use It?

To apply brow powder, you’ll need a brush and a spoolie. An angled  eyebrow brush with synthetic bristles works best. Fill your brush with powder and tap it on the back of your hand to shed any excess product. Then, start with your arches and fill in your brows using light, sweeping motions that follow the direction of your hair growth. You can also use brow powder to thicken your brow line. Use the spoolie to comb through your brows to blend the color and soften the edges. You will achieve a softer look with brow powder vs pomade.

What’s It For?

When using pomade vs brow powder, you will get a more defined, dramatic finish that includes a subtle amount of hold, like a gel. Pomade is excellent for people with sparse brows who want a quick way to fill them for a look that stays in place all day long. Those with thicker brows find that pomade gives them a bold wow-factor that can work well when you want a little something extra for an Instagram selfie.

How Do You Use It?

To apply  pomade butter, you’ll also need an angled brush and spoolie. Combination spoolie brushes make the job easier and save space in your makeup bag. Dip your brush into the pomade and use short, light strokes to fill in your brow line. Use the spoolie to blend the color and comb your eyebrow hair in the natural direction. Let it dry. You might question whether pomade vs brow powder is easier to use, but they are both very beginner-friendly.
