Simple tips for beautiful brows
Remember those big, bold Brooke Shields brows of the Eighties?
The tweezers took over as we headed into the Nineties, with the likes of Kate Moss sporting supermodel-skinny brows. As a result of all that over-plucking, most of us were brandishing our eyebrow pencils in the Noughties!
Just like everything else in the beauty world, brows have their very own trends. These days, thanks to celebrities like Lily Collins and Cara Delevingne, the bold look has taken over once again.
But you might be forgiven for feeling overwhelmed at the number of High Street products and beauty salons that promise the perfect face-framers.
Just where do you begin?
To help you on your way to beautiful brows, I’ve got a few easy tips to share.
1. How much time do you have?
Do you want to groom your brows daily, or leave them as they are?
If you’ve got time, daily application options include powder, pencil, pomade and wax. You could also try semi-permanent solutions, such as threading, waxing, tinting and High Definition, most of which need a little monthly maintenance.
For those short on time, permanent solutions such as micro-blading could be the gift you’ve been looking for! Bear in mind, though, that the permanent nature of these solutions means you won’t be able to move so easily with the trends.
2. Classic or on-trend?
When it comes to brows, it can be difficult to know what your ‘perfect’ look actually is.
Do you go with what’s in fashion, or what best suits and enhances your features and face shape? After all, if your brows are too dark or large then they may overwhelm you, or if they’re not defined enough, your face can lose its frame.
To help you decide, think about your natural colouring, and how much make-up you usually wear – especially on the eyes.
A darker eye look can be balanced with dramatic, well-groomed brows, while a softer look will also require a softer brow, regardless of what’s currently in fashion.
3. Seek professional advice
A professional beautician or make-up artist will be happy to advise you on the best style for you, and the easiest solution for your lifestyle.
They will take into account your natural colouring, hair type, application skills and the amount of make-up you usually wear. You won’t have to miss out on those trends, either – the ideal solution could even combine a classic look with something more fashionable.
With a little thought, care and attention, the perfect brows can be yours!
