Everyone Is Talking About...HD Eyebrows.

Not Megan Fox
Step away from the HD photographs of Megan Fox apparently we can look that striking, the word on the street its all about the eyebrows. I suppose girls like me have driven the demand for this sort of thing, someone who brings in a picture to the beauticians and asks to look like 'that' girl because her eyebrows are fab.

For years we have tried to pluck and wax those unnecessary hairs of our brows and one day said hey big eyebrows are sexy and just then we copped! They really are. Women are becoming more and more powerful and I guess just like men we want to show of our power through these dark and thick eyebrows.
Girls start this mad phase of plucking and waxing their eyebrows from a very early age now, what no one tells us is that the older we get the harder it is to grow them back into shapes that we desire. Waxing also may cause saggy skin when we are old ladies... We definitely dont want that and lets be honest with ourselves we do want to look like the great icons with huge brows. We are all about the dark and bushy!

Certain trends have come in for tattooing of the eyebrows, dont be fooled no one envies those girls. They dont look good and men find it freaky. Also no one mentions that you still need to pluck them after they are tattooed on. No thanks. What happened to the 'natural look', I know I laughed too when I said that... Natural look takes just as much effort as the fake look.

So what are HD eyebrows and why should we get them done?

Its a seven step procedure... I know sounds daunting. It takes about an hour and cost around 30 euros. HD eyebrows are basically reshaping your eyebrows, they focus on redesigning them and making them look thinker. This involves tinting, waxing, threading and some plucking of the brows. In short they are gonna look at you and decide what kind of eyebrows suit your structure and try and make that happen. Usually for people who have very little eyebrows it can take up to 3 sessions to perfect the eyebrows but apparently the more you go the better they will look, but of course they will tell you that.

Wanna give them a go yourself.. Eh we thought so. There are a lot of talented ladies on the world of YouTube who can help but here is what your gonna need.
1. An eyebrow pencil

There are so many to choose from it will melt your brain standing around trying to pick a decant one, I use MAC Eye Brow Pencil.
I mean everyone constantly goes on about how great MAC is... This however is genius. Its so soft and easy to use, you just draw the shape around your excising brows and make a complete new one (even if there are no hairs there).

It should be around 20 euro but definitely worth the investment it does wonders on a night out.

2. Brown Eyeshadow

Any brown eyeshadow that matches your tone will do, just make sure its stands out but not too much!
This eyebrow kit is genius. I have had mine for nearly 2 years now and use it every single day. One size is wax and the other shadow so you can apply the wax to keep your eyebrows in place, and dont worry this will not make them look greasy or rotten looking, it works.

I would recommend one of these as en investment its a whole of 35 euro in Benefit but there are similar ones in Urban Decay and other brands so shop around...

3. Eye brush, preferably angle one (I most of the time you any old yoke if I am in a rush)

This bad boy is TopShops creation, love being able to use one brush for several jobs, this is two brushes...
The angled brush is perfect for eyebrows, allows you to fill them in more evenly.

4. Concealer is very much just as important as any other thing on this list to apply for underneath the eyes for highlighting of the arches of the brows.


Found this great tutorial showing just that...
