We live in an eyebrow-obsessed world, and experts believe brow products could soon start out-selling mascara. I’m regularly asked about my own bold brow routine, so I thought it was about time I shared an update on the products and techniques I’m loving right now. Here are the 3 steps I follow…
STEP ONE – EXFOLIATE
Ingrown hairs are such a menace, especially around the eyebrows where the skin is already so delicate. I’ve had to dig out my fair share of stubborn ingrown hairs over the years, so was thrilled to discover bbrowbar’s Brow Exfoliator. The conditioning pen is infused with sugar crystals, so it gently lifts away dead skin cells, prevents ingrown hairs and conditions brows. I use it a handful of times during the week and think it’s so clever.
STEP TWO – TIDY AND SHAPE
All of the women on my mum’s side of the family have naturally arched, full eyebrows, so I’ve always been able to maintain my shape at home. I use the Tweezerman slant tweezers (which are the very best, in my opinion) to tidy up stray hairs, and trim the tops of my brows with nail scissors if they ever get too bushy. But if you’re not able to work with the natural shape of your eyebrows, the Anastasia Beverly Hills stencils help you create a flattering arch at home.
STEP THREE – ENHANCE
I’m lucky to have quite full brows, so I don’t need to use a lot of product. However, the hairs are a little bit sparse at the beginning and ends, so I touch them up with a pencil. At the moment I’m using the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in ‘Soft Brunette’, and I also highly recommend the long-wearing Lancôme Sourcils Gel pots. Unfortunately I’ve never had much luck with drugstore brow products (minus this little compact), because they all seem to have red undertones in them. Does anyone else have the same problem?
