FIND YOUR PERFECT SHAPE!

A few months ago we wrote a piece answering the 10 most Googled beauty questions of the year and we noticed not one, but two big brow queries. So, with your brow woes in mind, we thought we’d dig right down to show you how to shape and fill your arches to perfection…

TOP TIP

When it comes to shaping and defining your brows, take heed of Cara Delevingne’s no.1 piece of beauty advice – leave them alone! What she really means is embrace your natural shape. So don’t go chasing those Instagram tutorials and work with what you’ve got. Here’s how:

STEP 1

To shape, use EcoTools Brow Groomer and Comb to brush hairs upwards. Now pluck only the hairs on the brow bone that stray too far from the path. Same goes for the middle – use the handle to pinpoint where your brows should start (upwards from the edge of your nostrils) and pluck any hairs that fall in the middle. Remember to do this regularly to maintain your shape – especially before any big event!

STEP 2

Once your shape is… ship shape, brush through again with your Brow Groomer and measure out the key points. Using the same shaping technique as above, mark that starting point (upwards from the nostril) with brow pencil. Continue to mark the top of the arch – from your nostril, through the centre of your eye, to the top of the brow. And the tip – a straight line from nostril to brow, along the outer corner of your eye.

STEP 3

Now it’s time to start filling! When filling in your brows, it’s important to stay as natural as possible. Start by outlining the shape you’ve marked out with small hair-like strokes, before repeating to fill in any gaps.

STEP 4

Using a Brow Filler or Angled Brush, continue by taking powder through the brow to really define. Try to avoid doing this too close to the edge, inner and outer corners of the brows, for a natural finish.

STEP 5

Follow this with a final brush through. This step should really help to soften those edges, blending everything together.

STEP 6

To keep your brows locked in, finish by combing through some clear brow gel. Follow with a dot of Caudalie Vine[Activ] Smoothing Eye Cream and some natural-finish cream highlighter on the brow bone, to really brighten the area and make those brows pop!
