Has anyone else noticed that eyebrow trends are constantly changing? We've seen how super thin brows were the ultimate standard in the 1990s and early 2000s, then full brows took over, then bushy brows became trendy, and now there seems to be some of everything. But regardless of how thick or slim you want your brows to look, everyone can benefit from using a brow pencil to fill them in or line them.


"[A pencil] is actually my favorite application ... They are great for applying fine, hair-like strokes and look very realistic," Sir John, a celebrity makeup artist, told Byrdie. Eyebrow pencils are excellent for enhancing your brows and making them look more polished or complete. Of course, there are so many products to choose from that it might seem challenging to pick one, but we know the one that James Charles recommends.

Between Charles' various scandals and how he and fellow influencer Jeffree Star were in hot water with the USDA, there's no doubt that Charles is a controversial person, but we also know he's a talented makeup expert. Charles has more than 22 million followers on Instagram and even more YouTube subscribers, as makeup enthusiasts value his opinions. So, which eyebrow pencil does this controversial yet talented makeup artist recommend?


James Charles likes the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

If you've ever wondered how James Charles consistently rocks such flawless eyebrows, he shared his secret weapon: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. "The tip is super, super tiny, but can be really defined when doing your brows," Charles told ET (via wkyc). "My brows have definitely underwent quite the transformation since I started doing makeup ... This pencil saved my life as opposed to a really intense pomade. I also love this as well because I have a lot of beauty marks and freckles and I love to intensify them and draw them on for a youthful, cute freckled look using a brow pencil."


Anyone considering purchasing Charles' beloved brow pencil can buy it at Sephora for $23, where it comes in a plethora of hues to match various hair colors, such as dark brown, taupe, and caramel. Or, you can purchase the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Ultra-Slim Retractable Detail Pencil With Spoolie from Ulta, where it also sells for $23. Moreover, the pencil sells on Amazon for $23, at Walmart for $21.15, and at Macy's for $23. We're so relieved that this product is accessible for anyone to obtain from many retailers and isn't an exclusive item for famous people to buy from celebrity-focused sites.
