Bray People - - SPRING BRIDES -

LADIES, the "big brow" trend isn't go­ing any­where fast, so if you are con­sid­er­ing grow­ing out your brows now is the time!

Here is my guide to get­ting big beau­ti­ful brows, and all the cheats...

1. Treat your Brows like you Treat your Hair.

How can you ex­pect to have full healthy brows if you you don't treat them with care? Con­di­tion your eye­brows with a good qual­ity brow con­di­tion­ing prod­uct. Splurge: Ta­lika Eye­brow Lipocils Saver: Ardell Lash and Brow Growth Ac­cel­er­a­tor 2. Pro­fes­sional Shap­ing. Shap­ing the brow prop­erly to suit your face shape and nat­u­ral brow shape is very im­por­tant. Your brow tech­ni­cian will leave the hairs in place that are needed to thicken up brows, and merely tidy up the brow and re-shape as nec­es­sary. It may take a cou­ple of vis­its be­fore they are at their best.

Book in with an ex­pe­ri­enced brow ex­pert, such as me ;-) and have your brows pro­fes­sion­ally shaped and ti­died, and tinted if nec­es­sary.

Splurge: HD Brows (a brand in it­self - see HD Brow web­site)

Saver: A good qual­ity Eye­brow Tint & Shape & Tidy. Don’t chance it with your brows – go to some­body ex­pe­ri­enced with a good rep­u­ta­tion for brows.

(A pro­fes­sional brow tint and shape at my stu­dio costs €16) 3. Big Doesn't Have to Mean Bushy. Keep your brows well groomed, and hold in place with a brow gel by comb­ing through and shap­ing, or use hair­spray sprayed di­rectly onto a clean mas­cara wand and brushed through brows- cheap and cheer­ful! SPLURGE: Ben­e­fit Speed­brow €19 Saver: Ardell Brow Sclupt­ing Gel (€6) 4. Fill in the Gaps. Even af­ter tint­ing you may have some gaps that need to be filled in. Use brow pen­cil, or a pow­der in the cor­rect colour. Blend in by brush­ing through gen­tly with a brow brush. 5. High­light the brow bone Do this dis­creetly, noth­ing shim­mery or shiny. Use a light creamy tex­tured brow high­lighter such as Ben­e­fit High Brow (or a light coloured con­cealer) to high­light the brow bone and give a great brow shape, also giv­ing cov­er­age to small hairs while grow­ing out the brows.
