Holly Willoughby's makeup artist claims the bargain beauty buy is the secret behind the TV star's defined brows

No matter how early she's up to host This Morning, Holly Willoughby always provides us with beauty inspiration - and her favourite eyebrow pencil happens to be a total bargain.

The ITV star's go-to makeup artist, Patsy O'Neill, recently revealed the budget beauty buy she uses to create her perfect arches.

Retailing at £9, the NYX Professional Makeup Precision Brow Pencil features a flat tip to one end, allowing you to create feather-like strokes. The dual-ended product is perfect for filling, shaping and defining your brows, with various shades to choose from on the Lookfantastic website. It also has a spoolie brush that allows you to tame and blend.

Sculpt and define your brows with NYX's Precision Brow Pencil. Available in a range of natural-looking shades, this dual-ended pencil has a flat tip for creating precise strokes, while the other side features a spoolie brush for seamless blending.


Patsy shared the budget makeup item to Holly's Wylde Moon blog, saying: "I love a good quality brow pencil and most brands have angled ones nowadays. The beauty of the angle is that it really helps the application process as the angle makes it so much easier to apply.

"They mainly twist up so no sharpener required, and some have the bonus of a double end to include a spoolie for brushing. The point on the angle is helpful for drawing in lines where you may have gaps and the flat angle is perfect for creating the tapered line towards the side/end of the brow line."

The dual-ended Precision Brow Pencil promises to add natural-looking definition to your brows - and it's buildable for added coverage. With heaps of glowing reviews at Lookfantastic, the product is popular with beauty fans for "staying put all day".

When using the pencil to fill in your brows, NYX suggests starting at the base of the brow and using tiny hair-like flicks, making sure to draw in the direction of your natural hair growth.

Holly's makeup artist also revealed that she swears by The Ordinary's Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum for eyebrow growth. At £12.40, this formula aims to improve the look of lashes and brows - and Patsy described it as "great value".
