Long gone are the days of thin, over-plucked eyebrows (thank goodness!). Women around the world are now embracing soft, natural brows that enhance their features and frame their face perfectly. Say goodbye to eyebrows that require continuous plucking, waxing and tattooing and say hello to fluffy, full and natural brows!
As busy mums, we know all too well that time is never in our favour. Between getting the kids up and out the door in the morning, acting as their personal chauffer service, and the list of other things us supermums get up to, our eyebrows don’t get much of a look in. Which is why going natural is the way to go. Low maintenance eyebrows are a huge time saver, so much more convenient than attending monthly waxing appointments and they will keep your makeup look more youthful.
We caught up with the beauty experts at DB Cosmetics for their recommendation of the best eyebrow makeup for a low-maintenance brow routine. With tips on how to fill in thinning brows and how to use an eyebrow pencil, think of this as your ultimate brow maintenance guide for achieving on-trend natural looking brows, no matter what type of brows you’ve got.
Step #1: Set your brows
The ultimate product in your low-maintenance brow care routine would have to be a brow gel. We’re all about natural-looking brows, yes, but they still need some prep with a clear or tinted brow gel. To make sure they’re not all over the place, set your brows in place with a long-wearing and subtle clear eyebrow gel like DB’s Un-BROW-lievable Clear Brow Gel. Plus, it will add shape and volume naturally.
For some added depth and dimension to your brows, choose a volumizing eyebrow gel like their Brow Power Tinted Brow Gel. Available in three shades, this buildable formula does not stain or smudge, enhancing the natural colour of your brow hairs. Both products are designed to enhance the natural shape of your brows and keep them in place throughout the day.
Step #2: Shape the brows
For brows that need a little TLC after an accidental wax-happy appointment, try using a Brow Pencil. Perfect to fill in sparse brows to look natural and enhance their natural shape, this clever tool provides the illusion of more brow hairs, creating natural-looking brows that appear full and fluffy. And the long-lasting formula will ensure your fabulous new brows stay fixed in place all day.
As we get older, and because of a lifetime of brow appointments, eyebrows tend to look thinner and sparse, so filling in your brows is a great makeup tip for older women wanting to look a bit more youthful. For the ultimate all-in-one brow tool, try the Absolute Brow Pencil. Not only will this also help fill in your brows, it’s ideal for adding width and volume. Use its unique angled tip to draw light “flicks” onto your brows that convincingly mimic a strand of hair and handy brow brush for precise application. It also features a long-lasting, smudge-proof formula that will ensure your brows look on point from morning to night.
Step #3: Add extra volume
If your eyebrows are a little on the thin side, you’ll love using DB’s Extend-A-Brow for instant added volume for your brows. Containing brush-on silky fibres, this original formula is designed to transform, correct, define and thicken your brows. It’s available in two shades, light-medium and medium-dark, and is perfect if you’re looking for a way to enhance your natural brows with instant results!
Step #4: Embrace your natural brows
Learning how to embrace your natural eyebrows can completely transform your daily makeup routine and can help make any makeup look appear more put-together and youthful. Get some time back in your busy mum schedule by ditching the eyebrow appointments and embracing your natural brows (with a little help, of course!).
