The ultimate eyebrow beauty kit
If you love a well-groomed brow – and want to own one yourself – it’s highly likely you’ve stopped over-plucking and are currently in the regrowing stage. And well done, you. Your efforts will be well-worth it, I promise.
But let’s talk about your brow kit. Do you have one? And is it stocked with ingenious products you actually need? Now I’ve got you thinking…
We snooped inside brow expert Lien Davies’ pro kit (she’s the mastermind behind the Brow Quad Ratio, remember?) to see exactly what we need to ensure we’re on our way to owning brows that put Cara Delevingne’s to shame. (One can dream, right?)
Eyebrow kit must-have #1: a quality pair of tweezers
Lien loves Tweezerman tweezers, and I don’t blame her. Their slant tip makes gripping each individual hair easier, making it the ‘It' tool for precise tweezing. Just be careful not to tweeze too near the main shape of your brow, stick to stray hairs only. Leave the real shaping to your eyebrow artist, please.
Try: Tweezerman for Benefit Slant Tweezer.
Eyebrow kit must-have #2: an angled cosmetic brow brush
This type of cosmetic brush is outstanding for shading in your brows, as the angled bristle head makes it easier to deposit the right amount of brow product in a natural-looking way.
Try: Australis Angled Liner Brush.
Eyebrow kit must-have #3: an automatic brow pencil
This convenient product is great for thinner brows that need to be bulked-up. Apply using feathering strokes for a more natural finish.
Try: La Biosthetique Belavance Automatic Pencil for Brows.
Eyebrow kit must-have #4: brow putty
This paste-like product is perfect for darkening the eyebrows, as well as creating the illusion of a fuller, thicker brow. It also has a long-wear finish, so it won’t budge.
Try: Laura Mercier Brow Definer ($35, 02 9663 4277).
Eyebrow kit must-have #5: tinted brow mascara
This product is ideal for those with fair brows, as it brushes over the hairs to darken them slightly. It’ll also help shape the brows without overpowering the face or other features.
Try: Mineralogie Brush-On Brow Gel.
Eyebrow kit must-have #6: brow powder or eyeshadow
This is a versatile product that is commonly used to thicken and shape brows. The velvety texture makes blending easy and flawless, and you can layer the product as many times as you like to achieve your desired intensity.
Try: Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow.
