How many brow styles have you had in your lifetime? 
I can think of a few... I was 13 years old, someone made fun of my eyebrows at school one day, because they were thick and unshaped. I came home and proceeded to pluck what looked like every hair out.  Left bald I looked quite ridiculous, but that was the trend of the 90's/00's.

Eyebrows to me, are one of the most important features on the face, they frame the face, give the eyes more definition and generally play a very important part in helping us not to look like an extra terrestrial. 

There are so many brow products on the market these days, although they all do the same job they give different results depending on what look you wish to achieve.

2017 is the year of the unkept natural brow. I'm a big fan of this look, partly because it's super quick and easy to achieve and partly because it looks most natural, so here I have put together some of the best ways to achieve that look, using some of my favourite products. 

The L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper is amazing. I'm incredibly picky when it comes to brow gel.  My brows need to be super glued down, and this one holds shape throughout the whole day.  It also has great colour pay off. Fab for if you're fair haired and want some subtle colour - or if you have thick brows and want to tame them.  I like to brush the brows up to give a full bushy effect, but its also great for smoothing and flattening.

Kiko Sculpt Automatic Pencil. This pencil is perfect for subtly enhancing the shape of your brows.  I love the shape of the tip, it gives good definition without looking harsh.  I love the retractable tip too, and the brow brush on the other end makes it super easy to brush through your brows.

Laura Mercier Brow Pencil.  In typical pencil form, there's nothing fancy about this pencil, nothing retractable, no fancy shaped tip.  The best thing about this pencil is the formula; super soft and easily blended, not crumbly or waxy... The finish is natural, and you can build up on the colour.  The other end has a brush to help smudge any harsh lines and groom those brows into place. £18.50 CLICK HERE TO BUY.

Nyx Tame and Frame.  This product works really well for anyone who wants a slightly more intense brow.  You can really build up the colour and density.  The formula is smudge-proof and water-proof.  You won't be losing your brows in the rain with this bad boy!!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz.  This must have been one of the most hyped up products of 2016, all over social media feeds, YouTube accounts, blogs... Is it worth the hype? 
Well... being that it has such a fine tip, you can literally mimic each hair with super fine strokes.  It's amazing if you're slightly sparse in some areas, or if you want a really full brow you can create it with ease. I think it's brilliant. £15.50 CLICK HERE TO BUY.

Kevyn Aucoin precision brow also does the same job, they are extremely similar.  Both with brushes at the end and tiny retractable nibs.  LOVE IT. £21.00 CLICK HERE TO BUY.

Benefit Brow Zings.  Powder has made a come back. I love this look.  Brow Zings is great for an everyday look, you can create a soft brow with the powder on the right, and then darken the look and define with the wax on the left.  This nifty little duo also comes with a dual ended brush for application and some tweezers (which I have subsequently lost).  I'm a massive fan of the results you get with this powder. £24.50 CLICK HERE TO BUY.

What's your brow style?  Do you know of any other beautiful brow products I should try? 

Lots of love,
