Copy Keira's beautiful brows
Published 25/04/2011 | 05:00
To get the most flattering look for your brows, define your natural shape. Forget pencil-thin brows, which are very ageing, and instead embrace a fuller shape. If you're looking for inspiration, check out Keira Knightley's look .
Try to replicate her style with Bobbi Brown's tweezers (€29). Accurate and precise, they're specifically designed to pluck the shortest of hairs. Make sure not to fall into the usual trap of doing one eyebrow and then trying to copy it on the other side. Instead, use a hand mirror and sit in front of a large mirror. This enables to you do close-up work, while also getting an overview.
Pluck a couple of hairs on one eyebrow, a couple of hairs on the other, and continue in the same way.
Reduce any redness afterwards with Shavata's Soothing Gel (€7, from Harvey Nichols in Dundrum Town Centre).
If you have got a bit trigger happy with your tweezers and are running out of patience waiting for them to grow back, you can accelerate the process by applying some Blink Nourishing Brow Oil (€23, order online at blinkbrowbar.com) at bedtime.
This super-rich stimulating oil works hard to persuade brows to grow that little bit faster.
When it comes to highlighting them, blondes and light brunettes should opt for a shade darker than their natural hair colour, while those with darker tones should choose one shade lighter.
No matter what your hue, you'll find something to suit with one of Bobbi Brown's five creamy Brow Pencils (€22). After filling in, tidy brows with No7's Lash and Brow Brush (€5.60) -- always comb upwards.
Follow with a slick of the Body Shop's Brow & Lash Gel (€15.95), which set brows into place.
