Brows spend another season in the spotlight when it comes to beauty trends for SS16, and this spring it’s all about the smoky brow.
Bold, natural arches are the shape du jour, so put the tweezers down and get growing. Rather than tweezing, threading or waxing them into shape, invest in a good brow palette or quick fix gel product to keep your arches looking polished this season.
Your smoky brow icon? Zendaya’s perfect arches are the goal. Bold and polished but still soft and feminine, it’s all about filling any gaps and highlighting the brow bone beneath to enhance the shape.
If your natural brows are more of the slim-line variety, fear not, you can still make this look work for you. Take Gigi Hadid (top) on the catwalk for Chanel in Paris. Use powder-based products to fill out your brows and then take a similar hue to cover the lid to give the illusion of a fuller brow.
These three hero brow products will help you nail the trend:
Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo, £20.50, Selfridges - Use the darker powder to create the perfect arch and then using a larger brush gently dust the entire brow with the lighter powder to give a soft smoky finish.
Rimmel London Brow This Way, £3.99, Boots - The ultimate quick fix, just load the brush with product and sweep over each brow for an instant full, smoky finish.
Tom Ford Brow Sculpting Kit, £54, Selfridges - Use the two darker shades to fill and shape the brow and then use the light powder under the arch to highlight.
