How to: Up your brow game


Up until recently, eyebrows were the most underrated part of the face. Though they often get the least amount of attention, a little bit of grooming can completely transform your look, and give your make-up a more rounded-off or completed appearance.

With celebs like Cara Delevingne and Amal Clooney sporting full brows, it’s become a big trend and we’re hoping it’s here to stay. Here are five products that’ll make your eyebrow grooming session a tad easier:

Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil, R290
We love this ultra fine tip – it allows you to fill in sparseness with small flicks, which mimics the appearance of real hairs. Plus it’s water, sweat and humidity resistant too, making it perfect for summer.

Maybelline Brow Satin Smoothing Duo Pencil & Filling Powder, R109.95
This duo pencil was one of the most innovative of 2015. Get the shape you want with the gel pen, and then fill the gaps with the creamy powder end. It blends beautifully and looks very natural.

L’Oréal Paris Brow Artist Plumper, R129.95
If you struggle with volume, this is the product for you. This gel mascara contains fibres that attach to the hairs of your brows, making them appear fuller and more voluminous. If you have very dark eyebrows, you may want to fill them in with a pencil before applying this product. If you prefer lighter brows, simply use this on its own.

L’Oréal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit, R169.95
This adorable little kit contains a pigmented wax and a darker powder to apply over it, a small angled brush, spooley brush and mini tweezers. It’s great for travelling and allows you to glam up your brows no matter where you are.

Eylure Permanent Tint For Brows, R129.99
Don’t have the time to fill your brows in every day? This tint is safe and easy to use, and gives you medium to dark brown eyebrows for up to six weeks!
