As we age, our eyebrows tend to shorten due to the lack or oestrogen and that can make our face look older.

Not only that, they become too thin and too arched which can also add years to the face.

Eyebrow expert Kristie Streicher had a few tips for mature eyebrows:

1. Apply Argan oil to your brow bone to soften your skin and nourish the eyebrows.

2. Pluck out stray hairs to define your brows.

3. Fill sparse areas instead of “drawing” a fake looking eyebrow.

4. Use a gel brow first before filling sparse areas with a pencil so you can see where to “fill in”.

Watch this tutorial as Kristie Streicher shows us the best anti-ageing eyebrow techniques.

How do you normally draw your eyebrows?

    I am nearly 68 and fair with freckles. I have never had decent eyebrows my whole life, very thin and so pale they could hardly be seen, after having skin cancers removed from that area they were practically non existent. 25 years ago I had them tattooed and have been quite happy with the result. However recently I had them redone with the new more natural feathering tattoo technique and I am ecstatic. I have been told that it has made my face look softer, for me I feel better looking in the mirror in the morning with normal eyebrows, and do not feel I have to do the full makeup each day.
    I had to save for it to be done (quite expensive) but so worth it.
