The most important aspect of your face isn’t the smoothness of your skin, the plumpness of your lips or the arch or your cheekbones – it’s the shape of your eyebrows. Your eyebrows may seem like two unnecessary hairy lines, but they can enhance your appearance, frame your face and instantly make you seem more youthful. Bad eyebrows can be as detrimental as a bright orange tan or bunions, so it’s essential to find the right tools to help you on your way. Eyebrow pencils can often be scratchy and the colour too light to work with effectively, but here are my top three products that have really stood the test day after day.
1. Clinique Instant Lift For Brows (£15.00)
Available in three shades, this double-ended crayon makes creating perfect brows easy; the crayon is super gentle and applies to the eyebrow well to leave a strong colour result. This is great for filling in patchy brows or adding depth, but the chunky tip does make it difficult to draw individual hairs. With the addition of a highlighter to lift the brow arch and create an angled look, the Clinique crayon has been a staple product for me throughout 2013.
2. Bare Minerals Bare Minerals Frame & Define (£11.00)
Although this looks as though it’s going to be troublesome to use, the softness of the pigment matched with the sharpness of the tip make this a precise tool for brow styling. Perfect if you need to ‘create’ hairs, rather than just filling in, this is great for those with troublesome brows or sparceness from over plucking. The tip isn’t scratchy, nor is the colour hard to work with – this is my new favourite for a reason.
3. HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette (£19.96)
A favourite amongst celebrities, HD Brows offers a mantra for eyebrows and the products to bring that vision to life. I love this little palette that features a combination of four shades; available in three varying colour spectrums, the powder really packs a punch and allows you to fill in gaps with ease. You can even apply this to skin and create the illusion of hair, knowing it will stay put all day long. The handy angled brush includes also makes this super easy to use.
