Still not sure your brows are looking their best? We have been chatting to Tracie Giles, celeb eyebrow shaper, for her hottest tips…
Choose eyebrows according to your face shape
- Oval faces look best with a soft-angled eyebrow.
- Round faces will suit high-arched brows, because this adds length.
- Square faces will suit curved brows, which balance out prominent angles.
- Long faces will always look best with a horizontal brow.
- Heart faces look amazing with a round, low-arched brow.

Thicker, low-set eyebrows are in demand thanks to Cara Delevingne.
If you haven’t got thick brows naturally…
Try a growth-enhancing gel. My favourite is RevitaLash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel, £19.50, which encourages growth but is also tinted, so they look instantly thicker.
The trick to creating hair where there isn’t any…
Is to use waterproof brow products [we love MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set, £13.50], which won’t wear off by the end of the day. Waxes are great for faking hair. Always apply them with a thick, angled brush. [L’Oréal Paris Brow Expert, £9.99, comes with a mini brush.]
Thick brows don’t suit everyone
If you’re older, they can make you look angry. For a more natural finish, pluck them slightly to open up your eyes.
In between your normal waxing or threading appointments, always…
Hide stray hairs with a thick concealer [we love Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer, £19.50].
No two eyebrows should completely match
They’re sisters, not twins. Don’t spend time trying to get them to look identical.
