The power brow is back! The fuller arch was unleashed at the autumn/winter Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Calvin Klein shows, where make-up artists accentuated models’ eyebrows to make them bolder. This runway trend has already made an impact, with stars such as Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Scarlett Johansson embracing the well-endowed brow, reminiscent of Brooke Shields in the Eighties. Thicker arches add structure to the face, draw attention to the eyes and take years off your appearance. So pack away your tweezers and let your brows blossom.

FACTS

Eyebrows evolved as a shield to prevent moisture, such as sweat and rain, from flowing into the eyes.

  • Boost growth: oassage with sandalwood or castor oil every night.

  • Fill them in: Thicken arches by using a sharp brow pencil in light, feathery strokes to mimic your natural hair. Disguise nude spots with a brow powder in a shade lighter than your hair colour.

  • Keep them tidy: When growing out eyebrows, there is no excuse for unruly strays. Pluck them out with a tweezer or use mini wax strips to eliminate straggly hairs.
