TIPS & TRICKS

Day-to-night brows

Guess what gorgeous gals, when it comes to eyebrows, the possibilities are endless! Believe it or not…you can have so much fun with them – they can just add that little “summin summin” to a look. If you are stuck on where to start, then our lovely assistant trend and make-up artist Lauren Hogsden has it covered. With the help of just one product, gimme brow, Lauren talks us through how to take those brows from desk to dance floor in a flash:

gimme brow

 

“Let me introduce you to one of my favourite Benefit products – gimme brow! It’s a coloured micro fibre gel that mimics the appearance of real hair.  It actually adheres to your fine brow hair and your skin and comes in two shades Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. 

What shade would I be I hear you ask!? My suggestion would be to go for a shade that is nearest to the darkest tone within your hair.  Although I have blonde highlights I would opt for the Medium/Deep.  

Day brows

 Let start with a simple day application perfect for an everyday early start at work, when time is always against us.

 Step 1

Using the Gimme Brow wand, simply brush through the brow going away from the brow growth first, think of it like backcombing the brow. The reason we do this is the fibres can grab on to those naughty, little fine hairs that lay close to the skin. 

 Step 2 

Now apply in the direction of which your hair grows, the lighter your touch the more fibres fix to your brow … Adding natural  depth, volume and definition. 

No artistry needed! Gimme brow has got to be the easiest brow product to apply EVER! 

 Right, let’s take it up a notch and get these brows ready for the dance floor.

 Step 1 

 Add a little more depth to the brows by applying another coat of Gimme Brow to the brows and build the colour to your preference. 

 Step 2 

Using a hard angle brush take a small amount of Gimme Brow and skirt this around your brow border, this will give you sleek sharpness and defined definition.

Top tip – If like me you have a low-lying arch, add a little Gimme brow to the highest peak of the arch, this will give you a natural looking lift to your brows.
