Great eyebrows are a number one beauty asset & from a makeup artists point of view, nothing beats a beautifully arched brow. Eyebrows are important, as not only do they frame your face, they also express your emotions & ultimately balance your features. Recent decades have seen eyebrows go from thick & unruly in the 80′s through to dramatically arched during the 90′s, but thankfully today you only need to glance at the fashion pages to see that thicker brows are back & the shape of the moment requires a minimum of plucking.


-A great way to darken your brows is to use a matte brown eye shadow & a short firm brush with an angled tip. This technique provides a much more natural finish than a pencil (which always tends to ‘grab’ the brows) & is perfect for filling in gaps. I have used Elizabeth Ardens brow kit in ‘Sable’ for as long as I can remember… Its a small palate with a brilliantly versatile matte brown shadow that seems to suit everyone from blondes through to brunettes. It comes with a small brush, but I have a fabulous MAC brow brush that is easier to use as it has a longer handle.

-For stubborn or extra thick brows that wont stay put, spritz some hairspray onto an eyebrow brush or dry mascara wand & then run it across your eyebrows to ensure a smooth arch. In the summertime a dab of Vaseline or Lucas Paw Paw ointment can also work wonders to help keep brows in place, while keeping them healthy & glossy. I LOVE Lucas Paw Paw & will have to dedicate a whole blog to this wonder product!!!

-Tinting your brows is a great way to add definition & its easy to do yourself. Buy an eyelash dye kit from any pharmacy , mix up the solution according to the instructions & apply the tint using a small brush. The longer you leave the tint on, the darker the result & it lasts for at least three weeks.

-When plucking your brows, never remove the hairs above your browline, as this instantly takes away the natural line & drags your eyes downward (rather then creating the desired ‘lift’).

-Always remember that constant plucking will eventually stunt the growth of your eyebrows, so its important to be happy with the shape before you get too keen with the tweezers!
