gone are the days of the 1990's drew barrymore pencil thin brows. to be honest, we couldn't be happier! we love embracing our own natural beauty and if that means less trips to the threading lady, we're okay with that!
the thick brow has always been a fierce classic. think: jackie kennedy, and more recently cara delevingne and emilia clarke. so effortlessly chic. tres french.
sadly we're not all gifted with thick brows, but how can you create a look without going overboard? we're aiming for audrey hepburn, not high jackman.
tip #1: brush it up.
brush your hairs upwards using the wand end of the brow brush to bring out your brow's natural shape, while also creating a thicker canvas. smooth out the top edge of your brow to create a clean line.
tip #2: maximise effect, not impact.
us a lighter colour than your brow hairs to create a natural look. think about how light hits the high points of your face including the brow bone. when you use a lighter colour you can have that thicker look, without creating a dark space where light should hit.
tip #3: baby steps.
regardless of your preference, by way of a powder, a pomade or a pencil, create little strokes. draw quick and short lines in the space of your brow to create natural looking brow hairs. of course these strokes don't have to be perfect, but remember the general anatomy of your brows.
tip #4: work your way in.
now that you have the shape and the tones down pat, here is our last tip. when filling in the brow, start in the middle with light strokes then build up the product towards the arch. this is where the hair naturally gets a bit thicker. be mindful of where your brow naturally tapers off and create light strokes here too.
... and voila, your perfect natural brow!
