Brows are officially back in fashion, thanks to British model Cara Delevingne. Getting the perfect brow can help to frame your eyes and create a statement look. Bold brows have been featured all over the runway at fashion week, so if you’re looking to achieve the perfect power brow, here are a few things to take into consideration.
Don’t over pluck
For a bold brow, it’s best to only pluck stray hairs. If you’re worried you’ll over pluck then leave it to a professional. To regrow over plucked or very sparse brows, give the tweezers a rest for a while to allow the chance for your brows to recover. Castor oil is also said to help with the regrowth of brow hairs. Apply a little to brows overnight and leave it to work its magic!
Products make perfect
There are hundreds of brow products on the market. Finding the right product for you can help create the illusion of fuller and defined brows. To create a power brow, start by using a brow brush or spoolie to brush brow hairs upward and over at the very ends. If you’re using a pencil, use very small strokes in order to create a natural effect. Begin at the arch and work your way through the brow. Finally, add a little highlighter under the brow to emphasize the shape.
The pencil: Brow pencils are possibly the most well-known brow product and can create a very soft and natural look. Clinique’s Brow Keeper is a double-ended pencil and brush, which is ideal for both grooming and adding shape.
The powder: Using a brow powder with an angled brow brush can create a bolder and more defined shape. Try Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo for a smudge-proof brow color.
The cream: An alternative to powder and pencil is to use a creamy formula, such as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade for a waterproof and long-lasting definition on oilier skins.
