“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself”
Resident makeup artist Jess shows us how to enhance brow appearance with or without surgery.
Our browlift page will show you some surgical enhancements to the brow.
It’s no secret that our brows frame our face. The windows to our souls. They are 90% of our selfie. But another important fact about brows is that they can also play a big part in the fountain of youth. We’ve all lived through the 90’s where over plucked brows were the in-thing, but now we realise that a fuller thicker brow gives a much more youthful appearance. While there are a lot of treatment options available to help keep us looking young and fresh, some more expensive and extreme than others, a simple and very effective tip is to concentrate on the brows. If you fell victim to the tweezers back in the day, don’t despair. There are still plenty of options for you to create a fuller brow.
Firstly we need to talk brow shape. If you are lucky enough to still have plenty of hair and shape then that’s great, but if you have sparse or patchy hair then fear not. The best place to start is to map out your shape.
Step 1: Identify your starting point. Using your brow pencil, hold it to the side of your nose in an upwards direction. This will be where your brow should start on each side. Make a mark with your pencil.
Step 2: Next tilt the pencil while it is still beside your nose so it’s on an angle going straight through your pupil while you look straight ahead. Mark this point as where your arch should be.
Step 3: Now tilt the pencil even further so it goes from the side of your nose across to the end of your eye. This is where the tail of your brow should come to. Make a mark.
Step 4: Now starting at the base of the brow, map out the shape and feather the product through the brow to create the look of hairs, leaving the inner parts of the brow softer than the body and tails. Comb the product through with a spoolie brush to soften the look and create a more natural finish
You don’t only have to use a brow pencil, there are powder and gel options available also, however I find a nice small precision type pencil tip is the easiest option to work with.
