Eyebrows – they’re the bane of my life! I want me some Supermodel Brows. I got tweezer happy as a teen, never once imagining that thicker brows would come back into fashion (God damn you Cara Delevingne). Thankfully, my makeup Queen Charlotte Tilbury has some handy little products in her arsenal to help out women like me.

The first step to creating your own Supermodel brows is the Brow Lift (£22.50).
Mine is in the shade Supermodel which is suited for dark brown to black hair – I also have Brooke S for when my hair is lighter. Charlotte’s inspiration for this is the supermodels of the 90s and their brows – slightly squared at the inner corner, a perfect arch and a fine point at the end. Brow Lift is a 3-in-1 brow pencil (although I totally forgot to take a photo of one of the elements … bad bad Bunny) that is great for giving you shape to your brows.
There’s a brush at one end that is perfect for grooming the brows as well as using at the end to remove any excess colour. Then there is a highlighter end (the one I forgot to photograph, but trust me it is there), that is suited to all skin tones and when applied under the arch of the brow, it gives an instant lift. Finally, there’s a triangular-shaped brow cream-pencil that is perfect for defining and shading the brow. It is so easy to use, and helps you to cheat a nice shape to the brow.
If, like me, the brows that you do have are very sparse, then Legendary Brows (£18.50) may soon be your new brow bae. Sorry, I just need to go and have a serious word with myself for using the term ‘bae’.
Ok, so this is a gel formula that sculpts and shades the brows. It is similar to other products on the market (Gimme Brow I’m looking at you), but I find this easier to work with due to the size of the brush.
It is enriched with Magic Elasticizing Wax and Vitamin E, and the brush is a Micro-Fine Miracle Precision brush that coats, shades and grooms every single hair. This gives them a fuller, more defined look and the hairs are strengthened thanks to the addition of Castor Oil, as well as looking lifted and tinted due to the natural pigments in the formula. It can take a few goes before you get the hang of how much to apply, but it is so good at making your brows look thicker and fuller.
So you might be wondering why I’ve included a concealer in a post about eyebrows?
Well my Bunnies, sometimes I am a little bit messy and can be heavy handed when doing my brows. Thankfully I have The Retoucher (£25.00) for when that happens. As well as being a favourite for brightening up under my eyes and disguising the ever present dark circles, it’s also really good for cleaning up the brow area and making the brows look nicely lifted.
It is enriched with a Lipo-Silconic compound and special elastomer pearls (no I don’t really know what any of this means either) and creates a healing veil of colour that blends with your natural skin tone. It hides imperfections, pores, lines and wrinkles, as well as covering up that dodgy bit of brow and feels so hydrating on the skin thanks to the addition of black tea derivatives and vitamins. I could not be without this wonder product.
Now be warned, there’s going to be some not so great pics of my brows – no matter how hard I tried I could not get a decent photo.
Those of you who are unlucky enough to watch my vlogs will know that my normal brows are horrific, so thank the makeup lords … and ladies … for products that let us fake it until we make it.
