The best celebrity brow transformations
Never thought the shape and width of your brows really made that much of a difference to your face?
Well, they do. They really, really do. And just to prove it, I found some of the best celebrity brow transformations and asked Brow Expert Jazz Pampling to shed some light on why their brows have been changed for the better.
These days Leighton is sporting a fuller brow with longer tails and a softened arch, which Jazz says helps complement her high cheekbones and does wonders to frame her eyes. It’s also helped reduce that puffiness from around her brow bone.
Jazz’s tips for using your brows to accentuate your features:
“When you have features like fuller lips or beautiful stand-out cheekbones, a fuller brow will help create symmetry with these features, ” she says. If this is the type of brow you’re after, Jazz also recommends trying to grow your brows closer together and to be careful that you don’t allow the tail to drop down too much as this can actually drag down your eye shape.
As you can see, the ex-reality TV queen is sporting a much thicker brow and softer arch these days. Looks better, right?
According to Jazz: “The fuller brow helps to frame her face and facial features more – bringing overall balance to her face.”
Jazz’s tips for growing out thin eyebrows:
As we get older, our brows get thinner, so if this what your brows look like right now, it’s probably best to start growing your brows out as soon as possible. If your brows aren’t growing much on their own, try brow growth products and vitamins targeted towards hair, skin and nails. Be warned, though – brow growth serums need to be used continuously for about six months before you’ll notice a change.
Bet you didn’t realise Jen had such thin eyebrows a couple of years ago, did you? She’s now rocking a much wider brow that’s less angled and has a longer tail – which Jazz says works beautifully with her strong jaw line.
Jazz’s tips for balancing a strong jaw line:
If you also have a wide or strong jaw line, a soft arch like this will work better to compliment it and help balance your face. If you are currently sporting a high arch, be aware that it may take up to a year for your brows to fully thicken up, so have patience!
Isn’t it amazing how much a fuller brow can change a person’s face? According to Jazz, the fuller brow and straighter line works for Jess because it’s helped to reduce that puffy look from her brow bone and has actually made her look younger.
Jazz’s tips for using your brows as an anti-ageing weapon:
A softer arch can help to not only balance a wide jaw line, but it can help make you look more youthful, too. Jazz says that, despite the popular belief that a high arch will lift your features, it is actually one of the most ageing shapes you can give your brow, and therefore your face.
Also, a straighter brow can help widen a long face. Jazz recommends, “If you want to wear a straighter brow, you can also look at shortening the tail to help the brow look straighter.”
Jennifer Lopez has come a long way since the early 2000s – not just in terms of her career, but in her beauty choices, too. These days her brows are not only much fuller, but they start closer in, too. According to Jazz, this combo has helped balance out the width of her nose and makes her eyes stand out more.
Jazz’s tips for widening your eyebrows:
A wider brow doesn't mean you have to lose your arch and it doesn’t mean it’ll make your eyes look smaller. Jazz says that you can still keep your overall shape, you just need to grow in an extra line of hair or two on either side of your existing brow.
