Groomed brows are more popular than ever thanks to celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Jennifer Connelly and Jessica Alba. And whether you prefer to hand over the reins and let someone else look after them, or are more of a DIY-er, there are plenty of ways to keep your brows in check.
So here’s my handy little guide to both at home and salon treatments, available right now, whatever your budget.
- Wet n Wild
An absolute winner from budget friendly brand Wet n Wild; this mini kit contains two brow shades plus a wax for grooming as well as a miniature tweezers, and an angled brush for ease of application.
- Beautiful Brows
A compact box that contains everything you could possibly want to give yourself defined, shapely brows including; tweezers, a double ended make-up brush, brow powder (available in five shades), a highlighter and most importantly; three stencils to suit different types of brow shape.
- Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow
Available in seven shades, this unique waterproofing kit for brows comes complete with its own pouch and mini brushes allowing you to define, lengthen and fill in sparse areas for an effortlessly natural result that doesn’t fade or smudge, even in wet, wintry conditions.
- Maybelline Brow Drama
Perfect for anyone who has full brows and simply wants to keep them in place during the day. It also adds a touch of colour to the hair. Forget blocky brows, this’ll allow you to achieve the brushed-up fashionable look seen on runways this season.
- HD Brows
The Process of HD Brows takes about an hour and involves a combination of hair removal techniques including waxing, threading and tweezing first to create the perfect shape, before tinting to create a more defined overall look. Depending on how well you’ve kept your brows groomed in the past, there’s usually a little makeup added to give the perfect finishing touch.
Becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to tattooing, the technique of Embrowdery originated in Asia before crossing to our shores. Fine strokes of pigment are added to the upper layers of skin to create life-like hairs, blending in seamlessly with your own brows. Results last between 18 months and two years.
