Well shaped eyebrows act like a frame as they lift, widen and emphasise eyes but I know quite a few women who, when stressed, end up picking at their eyebrows until they are left patchy. Similarly a bad episode at the salon can leave less than perfect brows. There are a few golden rules to follow if you’re DIYing your brows – read them here – and don’t forget to use proper eyebrow makeup to get the best look one you’ve achieved a good shape.
A kit like Jane Iredale’s Super Shape Me Eyebrow Kit has everything you need for sculpted brows. Available in three colours – blonde, auburn and brunette – the smart gold compact contains mini tweezers, two brushes, a good-sized mirror and four products including a lid primer (great for redness caused by tweezing and as a primer for eyeshadow), wax and two shades.
