Clear Brow Gel, £23 | Anastasia Beverly Hills

If there’s one thing Anastasia Beverly Hills gets right time after time, it’s brows. Famous for its pomades and pencils, the brand’s clear brow gel also measures up. Working to both condition and strengthen brow hairs without ever feeling heavy or crispy, results last all day – but it also comes off with a simple swipe of make-up remover.

Brow Renew Enriched Clear Shaping Gel, £19.50 | Rose Inc

This buildable product works almost like a serum to improve the fullness of your brows over time. First and foremost, however, it tames stray hairs with its smudge-proof and flake-proof formula, while vitamins E and B5 plus pea sprout hydrate, condition and strengthen.

Brow Sculpt, £16 | Refy

This remains an influencer favourite thanks to founder Jess Hunt, whose enviable, laminated-looking brows propelled the product to viral status in the first place. Equipped with a dual-ended head, the applicator sets it apart. It allows you to comb, shape and set the brows into place with ease, while the unique formula is enriched with carnauba wax for that clean, glossy finish.

Nourish & Set Brow Gel, £34 | Plume Science

We love the mini applicator brush on this gel, which allows you to really pick up every individual hair for precise results. The rich, clean formula is made using the same growth actives as the brand’s award-winning lash and growth serum, which means it gets to work conditioning, sculpting and setting everything in place.

Control Freak Eye Brow Gel - Clear, £7 | NYX Professional Makeup

NYX is one of our go-to brands for affordable, reliable make-up. Clear and lightweight, this gel won’t interfere with pomades or pencils – instead, it subtly sets into the hairs and locks them into a neater, more defined shape. Comfortable to wear, without feeling sticky or hard, it can also be used as a clear mascara on those ‘no make-up make-up’ days.

Expressioniste Brow Pomade, £30 | Surratt Beauty

Admittedly a more expensive option, trust us when we say Suratt’s formula is worth the investment. Aiming to shape, hold and define the brows, its non-shiny and non-sticky formula is almost undetectable, making it a joy to wear. It also remains flexible enough to mould and sculpt the brows with ease, but once it does set, it stays put, giving the hairs the kind of natural definition we all want.

24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel, £23.50 | Benefit

This one may seem like an obvious choice, but it’s a cult favourite for a reason. Loved by beauty insiders for its ability to seal brows in place for up to 24 hours at a time, we love that it’s still flexible enough to play around with, before it dries and stays put. Another dual-ended hero, one side of the wand applies the gel while the other, with its shorter bristles, helps to keep things in place.
