Your eyebrows are so important! Have you heard the expression that your eyebrows frame your face? Well it is true! When your eyes are looking good with beautifully groomed brows that is half of your morning makeup routine done and dusted!





To ensure you are making the most of what you have got there are some very basic rules when it comes to brow shape. First of all hold your eyebrow pencil vertically so that the tip is up near your brow and the bottom is just brushing the side of your nostril at the base. This is where your eyebrow should begin – directly above the inner corner of your eye. Then hold the pencil out from your nose out past the corner of your eye – this is where your eyebrow should finish. Any shaping of the arch should take place directly above the outer edge of your iris.

I recommend having this done on a regular basis throughout the year. How frequently depends on you, but I do find that this is the best way to keep your brows in check.

Everyone has a unique natural brow shape. When having your brows shaped professionally, your technician should be respectful of your natural shape – enhancing it and tidying it up. Don’t be under the illusion that they will be able to magically create a totally new shape.

According to Bobbi Brown ‘properly shaped brows can lift and define your eyes, making you appear fresh and well rested’ – who doesn’t want that!?



Full eyebrows are associated with youth. When I get my eyebrows shaped I always remind the lady that I want my brows as full as possible with just a little tidy up.




Well-groomed eyebrows will always keep your overall look polished. In between professional visits whip out your tweezers (and the magnifying mirror) and pluck out any strays. Spray a little hairspray onto an old mascara wand to brush them upwards and outwards to help them hold their shape.

I am a fan of having eyebrows tinted. You can have this done professionally by a beautician or brow technician. My hairdresser will tint brows – which is great when you don’t have a lot of time. You can also tint your brows at home. (while you are at it don’t forget to tint your eyelashes too!)



There are many ways to do this and it is important to find the products that suit your needs and colouring best. Some ladies prefer to use a pencil, some a powder and some a combination of both. There are even specific mini mascara-like products designed just for eyebrows.

Whatever you choose, remember to go very softly with light feathery strokes and keep in mind that you want them to look naturally beautiful – not drag queen beautiful!
