How now is your brow?

Bring your best brow game with these amaz­ing cheats. Look­ing sparse?

Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Flash Brow Down -

Brows have ex­ploded in the beauty world since 2011’s celebri­ties started in­spir­ing new looks. They’re now the sec­ond most searched beauty cat­e­gory on Google (sec­ond only to ‘face’), with three mil­lion searches in 2015 alone, and the NPD Group (a com­pany that mon­i­tors how peo­ple shop in over 20 coun­tries) val­ued the mar­ket at R375 mil­lion this year.

What­ever the shape, shade and thick­ness of your brows, and no mat­ter how klutzy you be­lieve you are with a pen­cil or brush, there is no brow that can’t be ‘on fleek’.

And we all know how per­fected brows can transform any face in an in­stant, fram­ing the eyes and giv­ing a groomed look with­out a sin­gle tweeze. Try these easy tricks. Use A brow pen­cil to thicken and de­fine with hair-like strokes. A sharp point helps colour set­tle seam­lessly within your nat­u­ral brow. We love [3] Estée Lauder The Brow Multi-tasker (R385), which has a pen­cil, shadow and brush in one. Add A ma­jor mas­cara. Flut­tery lashes stand out be­neath a de­fined brow, so layer up the mas­cara. Top tip “Flick the brow pen­cil in the di­rec­tion of your hair to fill in any gaps,” rec­om­mends Lisa.

Use A gel for vol­ume and hold. We rec­om­mend [6] Ben­e­fit Gimme Brow Fiber Gel (R335). Add A state­ment lip. A re­ally knock­out lip­stick was made for a nat­u­ral­look­ing brow brushed up at the front. This sea­son is all about deep, dark berry shades, so TRY [7] Ur­ban De­cay Vice Lip­stick in Black­mail (R260). Top tip “Go against the di­rec­tion of the hair first, and then back with the hair for the best nat­u­ral­look­ing brows ever,” ad­vises Lisa.
