The trend for thicker, fuller-looking brows is going nowhere, but don’t panic if yours are more straggly and sparse than lustrous and well-defined. For eyebrows to rival Cara’s and naturally frame your face, help is at hand from these advanced growth-driving formulas.
And because eyebrows can be a beauty area met with trepidation, we enlisted the help of our expert Beauty Panel to lend us their advice.
If you’ve over-plucked, how do you go about growing your brows back?
“Leave the brow tweezing for at least 12 weeks to begin seeing your natural brow shape grow back and give it a year for full re-growth. After 12-to-16 weeks you can very carefully pluck any stray hairs that grow closest to the eyelid. You could also have your brows tinted, as the colour will latch onto finer hairs creating a fuller-looking brow shape. Just make sure the tint is the same as your hair colour, as you want brows to look natural and not heavily exaggerated. During the growing back period, use a brow growth serum daily to encourage re-growth.” – Isobel Kennedy, Make-Up Artist
How can you use make-up to fill brows in without it looking too harsh?
“Use a brow pencil or shadow in the same tone as your natural brow colour to fill in sparse areas, and then brush through with a brow comb to soften any sharp, harsh lines and avoid them looking drawn on. Finish by combing through with a brow gel to control shape, brushing upwards and outwards for a natural, full-looking finish.” – Isobel Kennedy, Make-Up Artist
