It is official, brows are not going away - says make-up artist Emma Farrell.
Thanks to three strong seasons of full strong brows on the catwalk, the beauty establishment has, finally, put the trend for pencil thin eyebrows to bed. Beauty editors are united in their dedication to a new look of bold, boyish and, above all, full brows. Bushy is the name of the game but they still need to look groomed. We only have to look at celebrities to see the trend in full swing. Beyonce, J-Lo and Emma Watson have been spotted with fuller brows. And, Kate Middleton has been sporting a full dark brow for some time now also.
The first step in achieving fuller brows is putting down the tweezers. If you are one of many who have thin bare eyebrows, get yourself a growth product like Rapid Brow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. Growing your eyebrows back means letting them really go wild for about four weeks, but it will be worth the effort. To keep them in shape using brow mascara like Becca's Brow Shaping Gel.
Once you have a good amount of hair to work with, go for a specialist brow shaping session like the HD Brows at Carter Beauty. A specialist brow designer will give you the correct shape without taking away too much hair and tint them perfectly for your colouring. By getting it professionally done, you get a much cleaner exact finish that lasts much longer. To keep the hair in place after your treatment I recommend BECCA's Clear Brow Shaping Gel.
However, if you are on a budget you can easily create this look at home. As the brows are thicker and fuller all you need to do is ensure there are no stray hairs and then the rest can be filled in with make-up. All this can be achieved easily and affordably with Benefit's Browzings kit which includes tweezers, wax, brow powder and brushes. A lot of people struggle getting the right brow shape. Remember a few key points and it will be like child's play.
You know those join the dot pictures? Suddenly you turn from barely able to draw a stick man to a modern day Picasso? Well the same idea can be used for your eyebrows. You need to measure three key points:
1) Inner Point
Draw an imaginary line from the outside edge of your nose through the inner corner of the eye, where this line intersects the eyebrow is where you place your first dot.
2) High Point/Arch
Another line from the outer edge of the nose to the outer edge of your pupil (when you are looking straight). This is where your highest point of your eyebrow should be, so place another dot. Also your brow should get thinner from this point out.
3) Brow End
The line from the outer edge of your nose to the outer edge of your eye. Most people's eyebrows are a bit short and need to be elongated with makeup.
Now join the dots for the perfect eyebrow.
