Eyebrow trends come and go and the list of treatments available for your brows will continue to grow.

Eyebrows have the power to drastically change the appearance and frame of your entire face and with your brows having the opportunity to change your appearance so quick, we need to be careful and light-handed when it comes to dealing with them.

Before / After

An important thing to keep in mind when it comes to your brows is not to get carried away when you get the tweezers out.

If you regularly get your brows tinted or shaped by a professional, lockdown can be tempting to give the task a go yourself. I would recommend leaving the tinting and shaping up to the professionals but that doesn’t mean if there’s a noticeable stray hair you can’t pluck it away.

TweezingTop Tip: Make sure to place the tweezers close to the skin so it can pull out the root of the hair and this will avoid breakage.

Who would have thought soap for your eyebrows would be such a useful product in your makeup bag, but it’s true a little bit of soap can work wonders by keeping your brows comfortably in place looking well groomed, instantly fuller and thicker.

All you need to do is wet the soap, run a clean spoolie through it then comb through your brow hairs.

Brow Pen:

Suzy Clarke, makeup artist to Love island star Maura Higgins has shown here the power of makeup alone.

Suzy herself has sparse and thin brows but uses a fine thin brow pen to mimic natural hairs.
The key for building up your brows is to start off lightly following your natural shape, only going in with a few hair strokes at a time.

Once finished drawing on hairs, dampen a cotton bud and swipe it just underneath your eyebrow to achieve a sharp clean line.
