Eyebrows. It turns out that they’re a pretty big deal. A seemingly unimportant facial feature that can actually make all the difference. I just wish I knew this as a 00’s teenager who was set on plucking my naturally thin brows into submission. Why did no one tell me? I think we can all thank a certain Miss Delevingne for reigniting our love for the bolder, the better brows. So for those who got a little too tweezer happy back in the day, this one is for you guys!
Let’s just ignore that fact that I am in need of a good threading session to get rid of the pesky little strays and focus on the main issues. Lefty here isn’t too bad these days. The shape is there but it’s in crucial need of filling in, especially in the tail end. My right brow though, where do I even start? That gap though.
Though this picture doesn’t show the wider image, you can see how much difference a little brow attention makes. I first lightly trace a guide shape for both brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown which has the perfect ashy tone. It’s then a case of using light strokes to mimic brow hair, making sure to use the spoolie end to blend out the colour and stop things from getting too sharpie-esque. With the gap in my right brow, it’s kind of hard to make it look natural so I just try to fill in the colour as carefully as possible. Once I’m happy with the shape, I like to set and add a final touch of plumpness by using Benefit’s Gimme Brow in Medium/Dark.
