Are you planning on being on stage any time soon? No?

Then lets tone things down shall we??

I am all for a defined eyebrow but ladies…. please. What is going on??

This new trend of over-darkening your brows needs to fade out. It’s great on a stage, it looks great with the right lighting and fabulous with the right filter. Everyday life, not so much.

In England we call them “Scouse” brows which refers to a particular region of the UK where people are of a certain overly made-up, bad fake tan calibre. Grab a “sharpie” and draw ya brows on. Nice. Here in Australia its taken inspiration from some very talented drag queens.

I believe that eyebrows should be seen on the face but should NOT be the 1st thing you look at. slow down on the “angry eyes” people.

Blend it...please!!!!

Sometimes, we may need a little bit of extra definition on our eyebrows. This can be done using a variety of products, the market is saturated with choice.

I'm not a big fan of tinting as I find that even when the colour is perfect initially, with the washing of your face it tends to last only about a week. Regrowth can look pretty interesting too when the brows have been lightened…tiger stripes anyone?

I usually like to recommend using a small angled brush to apply a shadow to fill in any gaps in the brow and create some extra definition. There are specific eyebrow powders or use a matte eyeshadow instead. I always comb through after applying the colour with a clean mascara wand to remove excess product, this will soften any harsh lines too.

Blend it and soften it!

A pencil can be used but ladies, keep it light and blend it! If you draw on a line...it looks like a line. Soften it! I am in LOVE with the new MAC Big Brow Pencils. They provide a powdery finish and don't require much combing through with a wand or brush.

Coloured brow gels are also an option for eyebrows that are a little patchy in colour.

Do you trust yourself with a long-lasting tattoo pen?

And the latest trend are the eyebrow "tattoo" pens and gels. Do they work? Hmmmm I'm testing a few to find out. Watch this space!
