Beauty buzz: '90s-inspired eyebrows

·2-min read

In recent years, bold brows à la Lily Collins and Kim Kardashian have been all the rage.

However, it seems '90s-inspired eyebrows are about to make a comeback, with the likes of Bella Hadid trying out thin arches reminiscent of the signature look of stars like Drew Barrymore, Kate Moss, and Gwen Stefani back in the day.

But before you go and pick up the tweezers, be warned that there is some preparation involved in achieving groomed eyebrows, with Tori Rosero, founder of Glow & Blade Academy (glowbladeacademy.co.uk), insisting it is key to start the process with the right eyebrow pencil.

"I'd recommend a soft, creamy pencil for easy application. I particularly like the P.Louise Cosmetics Brow Range - the product is super fine so will allow you to create precise strokes," she shared. "Fill in your brows BEFORE you reshape, as you don't want to remove any hairs that you might need to create your desired shape."

Tori went on to recommend ditching transfers as they are too time-consuming, and instead opt for a brow stencil that suits your face shape. Once you are happy with the shape, take your tweezers and very carefully remove any stray strands.

"Pluck lightly!" advised Tori. "Less is more, overplucking can leave you with brows that you can't easily fix so try not to overdo it unless you want to commit to skinny brows long term!"

For that sculpted '90s brow, pay extra attention to getting a clean, sharp finish. Use a highlighter underneath the arch to complement the line you've just created.

"Or use a setting spray or product that will keep the hairs in place - this will allow you to create the skinny brow look, without having to make any drastic changes to your existing brows. Concealers are a great option to help shape your arches too, and they can actually accentuate the thin line you're trying to create, once you've outlined the shape of the brow," the beauty expert added.
