Lets Talk Brows
Being a child of the 90s we saw some of the most iconic ''Super Models'' of all time! These women inspired us, trail blazing the way and defining many fashion foes across the world - Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Stephanie Seymour, Helen Christensen, Claudia Schiffer, Tyra banks and Christy Turlinton. Back then they all had one thing in common - Skinny, over plucked brows!
Today, looking back I wish I put down the damn tweezers and stop letting the beauty therapist wax my eye brows top and bottom to achieve a lovely skinny brow!! Thank you Cara D for bringing back the brows!!
So here's some of my tips to achieve the full brow - However be aware ... over drawn, over tattooed and really hairy brows have a term in the makeup industry (Cartoon Brows). We need to find the perfect balance for brows.
Firstly, put down the tweezers - don't pluck (only pluck if you start getting a mono brow) - I always say to my clients, grow out your brows for 3 - 6 months then go to a qualified brow specialist. I'm not a fan of threading (just a personal choice) but I see too many patchy brows from threading!! Tinting your brows is like magic, you'll see a fuller brow instantly.
Here's my 3 Steps to brow perfection : (No need to over complicate it - unless you have a youtube channel) Just follow your brow shape! FYI brows aren't naturally even, so don't bother about perfectly mirror imaging both brows, cause we are not Barbie!
1. Brush brows using a eyebrow brush and then style using a brow gel - I love to use LÓreal brow artist plumper - thickens your natural hairs without colouring the skin.
2. Use a pencil or coloured brow gel to outline your brows and fill in any gaps - MAC eye brow pencil's are amazing, with lots of different shades to suit all eyebrow colours.
3. Fill in brows using an angled liner brush and duo brow powders (keep the colours slightly darker than your hair colour) - MAC Cosmetics & Anastasia Beverly Hills are my favourite brow powders to use, they are water proof and stay on all day!
Then step back from the mirror and make sure brows are looking even and fix any gaps.
Practise makes perfect! Don't give up after your first day. Brows are important! They frame your face and make you look younger, making your eyes stand out.
