Eyebrows on fleek

Shapely, full eyebrows are what’s trending these days. The pencil thin look is officially a nineties thing. The age of the bush is back. Thick bushy eyebrows are what everyone is after. Eyebrows are now being filled in, instead of being plucked out. The darker the better. We don’t want to exaggerate, but maybe the unibrow may be making a come-back.

We love actress Lily Collins’ and model Cara Delevingne’s look.

How do you achieve this look, even without a lot of bush on your eyebrows? It’s a simple four-step process that only requires the right tools.

 

 

1. Brush your eyebrows

 

Using a spooly brush, brush your eyebrows upwards, following the angle of your brows. Start with the thickest part

of your brow and brush to the end of your eyebrow. This will allow you to see where your brows are uneven or sparse.

2. Get the desired shape

 

Pick an eyebrow pencil similar to the shade of your eyebrows or a little darker. Lightly draw in the shape you would like to achieve, creating a stencil effect. Use short, dash-like strokes to mimic your eyebrow hairs. Make sure you do this so that it looks natural. You want the pencil to fade in with the rest of your eyebrows. Don’t just draw on eyebrows – blend them in.

3. Fill them in

 

Fill them in Using powder, fill in your eyebrows in the areas that your hair is sparser. Pick your desired powder colour (if you are looking for darker eyebrows use a darker shade and if you are trying to lighten up your eyebrows choose a lighter shade). Using an angled brush, dab the tip into the powder and then apply by wiggling it into your brow. Do this until you have the definition you want.

4. Highlight

 

The final step to achieving thicker, darker eyebrows is by highlighting them on your face. Taking a fluffy brush, dip it in translucent powder and then brush around the perimeters of the brows, tracing their shape. This will define the edges even more and make your eyebrows look sharp. The aim to make the eyebrows pop!
