It started with the sequined brow from Chanel for A/W 2012/13 and before you could say Denis Healey, the Spring Summer catwalks 2013 were awash with bushy brows.
‘It’ girl and model of the moment Cara Delevingne has the perfect to die for brows and honestly, what’s not to love about this look, at any age – well maybe not the sequins!
Having always been a fan of a strong eyebrow, the 80’s were the my brow nirvana. A time when girls didn’t shave or wax every single hair from their bodies (don’t get me started) strong brows equalled strong women and my browspiration of the time included Sade, Anabella Lwin, Lizzie Tear and of course Siouxsie Sioux.
Sadly if you over plucked your eye brows when you were younger (as I keep telling the teen, who has perfect bushy brows, but insists on plucking them) as you get older they seem to suddenly decide not to grow anymore – what’s that all about?
I asked beauty guru, make up artist, writer and feminist (she’s one of us) Kay Montano if there was anything we could do about this.
She suggested Rapid Brow Enhancing Serum by the same people who make Rapid Lash Enhancing Serum (which really works). She says “you have to be patient, it doesn’t show for a month and you must put it every night, but it really is great”. She also suggests the Autograph High Definition Eyebrow Pencil from M&S (she really rates the M&S beauty dept ) and the Diego Dalla Palma Eyebrow Fixer, also from M&S.
I don’t know about you but I’m getting them all!
