In the 1920s, silver screen starlets from Anna May Wong to Clara Bow wore their eyebrows pencil-thin with a noticeably downward-curving tail. In the ’50s, Elizabeth Taylor’s striking eyebrows were thick and dark – the perfect partner to her double set of dark, fluttery lashes.
Through the decades, eyebrow trends have been up and down. In 2016, the overt Instabrows dominated the beauty sphere but this year the look is something a little bit more natural. In place of lip fillers, microblading is seemingly the appointment everyone is scrambling for in the quest to achieve beautiful ‘brows.
So when your eyebrows are looking thin and sparse, how do you grow them and keep them looking naturally thick?
Jam-packed with ingredients from medicinal herb extracts to bio-peptides and amino acids, ‘brow enhancing serums can promote hydration on the skin underneath the brows, stimulate keratin genes responsible for eyebrow growth and protect the follicles from environmental damage so they don’t fall out as easy. High Definition’s Lash & Brow Booster for example, is enriched with argan oil to encourage hair regrowth.
It takes daily use and lots of patience to yield results, but if you hold back on tweezing and threading, the wait is worth it.
