Brows on fleek, brows on point, brows, brows, brows. Eyebrows have never been more en vogue and luckily for us, it’s the bigger the better.
Gone are the days where women pluck their hairs to oblivion just to look like the images of models and starlets that were thrusted on them decades ago (let’s take a minute for our mothers’ brows of the 80s and 90s).
Now we have the likes of Cara and Lily Collins, bushy brow advocates to mirror.
While the trend is go big or go home that doesn’t necessarily mean no grooming required. If you have super thick brows and you’re happy with the shape of them, then a spouli (a dry mascara wand) and clear brow gel will suffice.
Brush them through with a spouli and them set them with a clear brow gel – the Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel is awesome and doesn’t flake.
If your brows need a little more TLC, hair removal is an option that you can look into. There are a few different ways and a lot of reputable places that you can sculpt your brows such as waxing, plucking and threading.
For light-haired ladies, if you’re after a stronger brow there are ways to fill them in without them looking like inverted Nike ticks or the Dolmio dad. Firstly, you’ll need a brow product that is the same colour or slightly darker than your hair colour for the most natural look.
If you’re using a pencil, use light feather-like strokes to fill in the brow to mimic the texture of hair. For definition, avoid drawing around the brow as this will result in an unnatural finish, simply define from the base of the brow following it’s natural arch, and fill in in an upwards motion.
