The Importance of Brows


As we get older we tend to loose hair and noticeably, our once Cara Delevingne brows now look rather sparse. As a make-up artist I know the importance that brows have on framing the face amongst many things. Making the most of our eyes begins with the brows. Getting them shaped to suit your face is essential. Eyebrows are one of a person’s most prominent facial features they help accentuate the eyes, shape the face, and they also play a powerful role in communicating with each other. Of course, not everyone is born with perfectly-manicured brows; so to achieve a groomed and pleasing look, eyebrows need to be routinely trimmed, shaped, and filled.

If you have never shaped them before go to a professional to start with to get the shape right but keeping on top of them by tweezing stray hairs is a must. My favourite tweezers are by Tweezerman and investing in good tweezers is a must. Using a brow pencil and brow powder or wax to fill in your brows helps too my favourite brands are:

Hourglass pencils

E.L.F eye pencils

Bobbie Brown brow palette
