Eyebrows have the ability to transform a face – define, sculpt or shape, depending on how you style them. At the moment brows are big, bold and fluffy but it’s a tricky trend to pull off if you’ve over-plucked in the past. Permanent brow treatments are always an option. Microshading, microblading, or ombre brows are excellent alternatives for those of us who’d prefer not to do the work. It is an effort, whether you pluck, tweeze or thread, but given what a difference it can make, it’s worth it in the long run.

Crucially you need to decide what sort of brow suits your features – it’s all in the shape that you choose

Crucially you need to decide what sort of brow suits your features – it’s all in the shape that you choose. Seeking an expert and getting some advice can really help. Lastly, pick products that feel right for you, whether a gel, pencil or powder. Experiment a little, make sure it’s the correct shade, apply it with precision and you’re good to go.
