Forget the permanently surprised look of the 90s; 2013 is all about those Cleopatra brows – dark, thick and powerful.
It’s time to reintroduce brow tools into your morning make-up regime, so make sure you reserve an extra three minutes before the coffee dash.
For big, beautiful brows, brow gel is your best friend. These tinted gels are like mascara for your eyebrows and allow you to define, style and thicken them to your heart’s content. But with all the big brands jostling for your attention, which brow gel do you go for? Here’s our pick of the best:
Eyeko Brow Gel
Marie Claire’s ‘buy of the day’ is Eyeko Brow Gel, boasting a ‘nano-brush’ (a small easy-to-use mascara brush) and a botanically-enriched formula with keratin protein designed to condition and plump each individual hair.
- no dryness, solidifying or flaking (not a good look)
- long-lasting hold (your brows will stay luscious all day)
You can buy Eyeko Brow Gel for £18.
MAC Brow Set
This brow gel from MAC gives you more for your money. It quadruples-up as a lash separator, sideburn groomer and, for men trying to cultivate a worthy moustache, a facial hair shaper – as well as an eyebrow gel.
- no flaking or stiffening
- mulitple uses
- comes in three different shades – clear (subtle), beguile (less subtle) and show-off (not at all subtle).
You can buy MAC Brow Set for £12.50.
No7 Lash and Brow Perfector
For those on a really tight budget, we suggest No7 Lash and Brow Perfector. This product is ultra soft and caring, giving your lashes and brows a good conditioning whilst whipping any unruly hairs into shape.
- doubles up as a lash shaper
- caring formula.
You can buy No7 Lash and Brow Perfector for £8.50.
