We’re finally getting over the groomed-to-perfection face-framers and opting for more natural eyebrows once again. Highly-arched arcs are being replaced with thicker, fuller and natural shapes. It’s not just the Cara Delevingne effect, but actresses like Lily Collins and Emelia Clarke are giving us serious brow-spiration.
If you’re looking to add a little oomph to your natural eyebrows, the easiest way to fake a little fullness is with a good brow gel. It tames, tints and boosts volume in one. If you were born in the 80s or before and you’re not down with the multitude of eyebrow products that are now available, think of it like a mascara for your brows.
HOW TO USE
Start by removing any excess product off the wand – just like you naturally do with your mascara. I like to use mine filling in any gaps I have in my brows first. I then go over the whole brow using short upward strokes in the direction of hair growth until I get to the tail. Finish running an eyebrow spoolie through (the brush that looks like a mascara wand) for an even finish.
A NOTE FOR BLONDES
If you’re blonde like me, eyebrow products can be so hit and miss when it comes to colour, but my favourite picks below have the most natural colour pay off.
THE BEST EYEBROW GELS FOR EVERY BUDGET…
The best budget find out there that will stay in place all day. I use the ‘Dark Blonde’ – a very natural shade.
Benefit is always ahead of the brow-game. If you need a professional tint and groom head to one of their counters. I’ve been using this for years. A modern beauty icon!
The brush has a short and long bristle side. The pick for accuracy or a thicker brow.
