At House of Coco it’s all about the eyebrow, we seriously love our brows. We’re into big, defined, statement brows because they shape our face and can make or break a look. It’s all about experimenting with colour, style and finish so that our brows are movie star perfect whatever the occasion.
We have combined a super strong list of our favourite products to help with your every need when it comes to eyebrow perfection. And, we are lucky to have been sent a complete guide to eyebrow do’s and don’ts from Sparkle PR.
DO match your brow colour to your roots. This is the most effective system to achieve a natural look and frame your face.
DO go professional from time to time. With all the great gadgets and grooming tools available, most of us have taken to DIY brows at home. However, from time to time it is worth visiting your local salon or threading counter for the professional touch. They can also advise on cleansers, serums, and gels to aid brow beauty.
DO always take a step back to admire your work. When grooming your brows it’s important to keep taking steps back from the mirror to check your work is even.
DO invest in good products. Liners and mascaras are makeup bag wonders ensuring brows are on fleek at all times!
DO experiment with tools. It’s worth trying out new tools, you may find the only tweezers in the world to conquer unruly brows, and by investing in a new brow brush it can make all the difference from messy to neat in just one sweep.
DON’T take inspiration from TOWIE! Brows 5 shades darker than your hair colour is never a good look on anyone. Get your #browsperation from the catwalk not from Essex.
DON’T bleach your brows. No matter how blonde or fair you are a bleached brow will always wash you out and take away all definition.
DON’T over pluck. It’s always useful to draw your desired brow shape on with a pencil so you can use as a guide when plucking. Otherwise it is easy to get pluck-happy.
DON’T go product-free. Whilst the natural look is fully promoted, a little bit of love and attention before leaving the house will go a long way when it comes to your brows.
