Quick Fix Eyebrow Groomers

Section: How to fakeawake
Super-groomed brows might still be one of the biggest beauty trends, but it’s also one the quickest ways to look fresh-faced, wide-awake and five years younger. And you don’t need to spend hours (or money) on salon waxing, threading or tweezing to transform your brows. We’ve rounded up the best fast-fix brow groomers to make them look great in seconds. Ready, set, groom!

Benefit Gimme Brow, £17.50,

The fibre gel formula of Gimme Brow clings to skin as well as hair, so it’s ideal for creating the illusion of thicker, fuller brows if yours are a little thin or sparse. The tapered brush makes it easy to create the perfect shape and you’re less likely to get unwanted colour in the wrong place. (Look out for Brow March Arch for free or donation brow treatments with Benefit at Debenhams on March 9th)

This is an eyebrow duo with a twist. This gives all the precision of a pencil without the need to carry a sharpener – perfect for mums on the go. The super thin angular crayon creates the perfect arch and easily fills in every tiny gap. Finish by brushing on the softly-tinted gel to fix brows in place.

Hi Brow Smoothing Wax Pencil, £7.49,

If you’re after a simple, quick and clear solution for taming brows, smooth this colourless wax over to keep them in shape all day. Alternatively, if you already have an eyebrow pencil/powder you’re loyal to, finish up by adding a thin coat over your brows to set the colour and add a waterproof seal.

Soap & Glory Arch De Triumph Eyebrow Shaper & Highlighter, £9,

Shape and lift brows in one with this double-ended chunky pencil. After drawing in brows with the tinted end (which is long lasting and contains spherical fillers for fuller brows in a flash), trace the highlighter under your brow line and blend. This will lift your brows giving the appearance of instantly bigger, more wide-awake eyes – what every mum needs after those sleepless nights.

CK One Brow Pencil & Gel Duo, £14,
