On a par with scarlet lips and a slick of mascara, little pulls your make-up together like a softly sculpted brow – and with instant results. ‘A well-defined, groomed brow frames your face and adds flattering dimension. On the flip side, a bare brow can lose strength and definition,’ explains pro make-up artist, Mel Arter. And to be clear on the brow-goals we’re talking about here: natural is the aim of the game and subtlety is key – a style that suits all ages and defies trends.

‘If you’ve previously found it tricky to achieve brows that didn’t feel overly done or product heavy, you’ll love the new formulas – from gels to creams and crayons – which are far easier to apply, remove and offer a reliably natural finish,’ continues Mel.

One of the best tools for bulking up sparse, fine or gapped brows is a microfibre gel, which adheres to both hairs and skin giving the illusion of fullness in an instant. Wiggle in at the base and brush up.

Finally, if you want to go the extra mile and enhance your brows, add a touch of softly shimmering highlighter just under the arch. Use a defined brush for precision.
