They ruled the runways at Helmut Lang and Marc Jacobs. Yes, full eyebrows are back and they’re bigger than ever.
So, step away from the tweezers and make way for wow brows this season.
“Having your eyebrows styled professionally makes all the difference,” says Nilam Patel, world-renowned eyebrow shaper and owner of HD Brows.
“But if you must do them yourself, be careful not to over pluck. Try to simply remove just the strays and create a nice arch by only tweezing from underneath.
“If you’re in any doubt where to pluck, fill in any gaps you might want to grow in and pluck around the outside.
“And when plucking, always stand back from mirror every so often to check shape and symmetry,” she adds.
Top make-up artist Shavata agrees: “If you try to make your brows identical you will end up plucking them to nothing.
“Always tweeze both eyebrows together taking a few hairs off each at a time. It is a lot easier as trying to mimic one brow shape after the other is very difficult.”
Here is our pick of must-have products for creating wow brows:
