THE BEEF ON BROWS.

The beef on b r o w s.
What do these thick, dark brows really mean? That's easy, power. 


The hot beauty trend (again) is thick, very dark, elongated brows. The last time we saw brows  this intense was in the Brooke Shields days. The early eighties baby! We then moved towards the hideously over-plucked arch in the nineties, and it pains me to say, we're still seeing it in the naughties. No people, just no! Bold, bushy brows are back, embrace them. 


So, how do you get the look? It's easy. If you have already invested the time in growing your brows, or, you are naturally blessed with a fabulous wild growth - listen up. Apply a gel with an eyebrow brush and shape upwards. If you have uneven and sparse brows you will need to use an eyebrow pencil or eye shadow to fill them as well. Ensure you are using a colour that is at least one shade lighter than your hair. Whether you are going full-glitz or natural, your eyebrows always need a little tweaking. These magnificent creatures frame our face and open up our eyes.



TIPS ON MAINTAINING BEAUTIFUL BROWS:

1. Never pluck above the eyebrows.
2. Only pluck one hair at a time & in the direction they grow - HOT TIP: wipe toner gently over the area that has been plucked to avoid infection
3. When using an eyebrow pencil, apply with gentle, broken movements to create a natural looking sweep. 
4. If you are not a believer in plucking or waxing, at least brush your brows!
5. If you are using an eyebrow pencil, use one that is a shade lighter than your hair colour to achieve a natural look (unless you are like me and have serious Rachel Taylor brow-envy!)
