We’re really not sure where trends spring from in the makeup world; why some we love come and go before we even have the chance to master it, or why some we raise an eyebrow at initially hang around for a few seasons before we all wonder…um, why? But one thing that is rare is when one of these trends, stops being a trend, and becomes an absolute makeup staple.
You know it. We’re talking brows. Big, bold, well-groomed and defined brows are here to stay. Thank you, Cara!
So why is this? Fabulous brows work wonders in so many ways. They help frame your face which enhances your overall look. If you haven’t yet become part of the brow squad, it’s time to make the move beauties! And of course, we’re here to help J
Before we get into bold brows 101 let’s take it back to basics – tweezers, tweezers, tweezers. Did we mention tweezers? A good pair of tweezers really does make a difference – because without them your brow game will be, well, not on the winning team.
1000 Hour offer a range of tweezers including grip tweezers (these are better used to apply false lashes but if you have them handy, they will definitely work), lighted tweezers to help remove even the finest hairs, and our must-have, the precision eyebrow tweezers which have been specifically designed with a slanted tip for precise control when grooming brows.
Top tip: once you find your fave pair, use them on a regular basis to pluck any strays before they get out of hand.
