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