How to brow



Follow these steps from Lisa Potter-Dixon, Benefit Cosmetics head make-up artist and brow guru


1. To work out where the start of your brow should be, hold an eyebrow pencil parallel to the edge of your nostril and line it up with the inner corner of your eye. Mark the spot where the tip meets the brow.


2. Find the highest peak of your arch by lining up the pencil with the edge of your nostril and angling it towards the centre of your iris. Mark the point where the tip hits your brow.


3. By holding the pencil diagonally, from the outside corner of your nostril to the outside corner of your eye, and marking the spot, you can see where your brow should end. These three markings are your guide for the perfect pluck.


We found the best brow products, so you can pick your tool of choice


1. FOR A LONG-LASTING LOOK, go for a gel formula such as L’Oréal Paris UnbelievaBrow Long Wear Brow Gel*, £14.99/1,499 points. Alternatively, a powder will give you a softer finish: we rate Maybelline Master Brow Pro Palette Eyebrow Kit* in deep brown or soft brown, £8.99/899 points.


2. BROWS NEED TAMING? Set and shape with Benefit 24-HR Brow Setter Gel*, £21.50/2,150 points.


3. TO CREATE A FULLER STYLE, amp up the volume with Rimmel London Wonder’full Brow*, £7.99/799 points.


It’s best to tweeze straight after a shower. This is because the heat naturally loosens hair follicles, making for a less ouchy experience.

    1. Ensure your tweezers are in good nick, as they become blunt over time. We like Boots Slanted Tweezers Boots exclusive £3.80/380 points. And make sure you have good lighting.


    2. Grab each hair as close to the root as possible and tweeze swiftly in the direction of growth. Use a spoolie (it’s like a mascara wand, minus the mascara) to tidy up hairs.


    3. If you have stray, longer hairs, use Luxe Studio Stork Brow Scissors* Boots exclusive £12/1,200 points, to trim small amounts at a time above the brow line. How neat!
