Game-Changing tips for perfect eyebrows

Frida Kahlo, Lauren Bacall, Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Hepburn, Brook Shields, Madonna, Kate Moss and Cara Delavigne; what do they all have in common?  Iconic eyebrows of course!

It’s no secret that eyebrows frame the face, but when it comes to our brows it’s the shape, thickness and level of grooming that speaks volumes.  Eyebrows are important youth indicators on the face and whilst it’s easy to pull off extremely thin brows in our twenties and thirties by the time we hit our forties thin brows can look harsh and become aging. Here are the most common mistakes I see when it comes to brows and the best products for correcting them:

  1.  Over plucking
  2. Using an old pair of tweezers
  3. Taking too much off the sides
  4. Making too much of an arch
  5. Forgetting the top
  6. Overusing your eyebrow pencil
  7. Waxing when you’re using anti-aging retinoid creams
  8. Never seeing a brow professional

 My top 3 picks for amazing brows:

  1. Hourglass brow pencils: These retractable pencils come in great ashy tones and are slanted for easy application www.uk.spacenk.com
  2. Miss Sporty Just Clear mascara: A must if you have uber-thick brows that need taming www.boots.com
  3. RevitaBrow: From the makers of RevitaLash, this brow formula enhances and conditions for fuller more defined brows. Apply it every night to your brows www.amazon.co.uk
