Billion Dollar Brows: Never Leave Home Without Them

Eyebrows are something that are so important to me I never leave home without them! Honestly I don’t know what I did before without them. Well, at least without defining them anyways.

Eyebrows take care to define-you don’t want to go overboard and then have two slug-like marks over your eyes or under-define them and pluck them so thin so they are just two skinny lines over your eyes. Neither are a good look.

A cool little discovery for brows I found? Let me introduce you to Billion Dollar Brows

The kit compels you to ‘take your brows back’ and comes with four useful tools.

1. Tweezers 

These are fantastic and have a great grip on fine or stubborn hairs. I’m definitely throwing my old one out after using this one.

2. Brow Scissors (you know what these look like!)

Necessary for trimming brow hairs if they get unruly.

3. Universal Brow Pencil and Brush

This brown pencil comes in a flattering brown which matched perfectly to my brows without making them look unnaturally dark. The liner is also water resistant so won’t come off in case you get caught out in the rain!

4. A Brow Buddy

This little genius is great for finding the perfect arch!

Step 1: Finding the Perfect Arch

Place the Brow Buddy flat against your face in the closed position with your nose in the centre. This is where your brow will START. Using the pencil, draw a thin line on the inside of the tool, as illustrated by the pink lines.

Step 2: Finding Your Arch

Look straight ahead and extend the prong until it lines up with the outside corner of your iris (the coloured part of your eye). This is your ARCH.

Using the pencil, draw a thin line on the inside of the tool, as illustrated by the pink lines.

Step 3: Finding Your End

Extend the prong until it lines up with the outer corner of your eye. This is where your brow will END.

Using the pencil, draw a thin line on the inside of the tool, as illustrated by the pink lines.

Brow less and no eye make-up

Step 4: Establishing the Bottom of Your Brows

Once you have your start, arch and end points, you can now connect the lines.

Following your natural brow line, draw a line to connect the start, arch and end points on the bottom of your brow.

Step 5: Establishing the Top of Your Brows

Following your natural brow line, draw a line to connect the start, arch and end points on the top of your brow.

This will create an outline that should look like the illustration.

Kerry Hoy is the UK Master Trainer for Billion Dollar Brows and she says, ‘Brows frame your face and having brows shaped properly can be the equivalent of a mini-face lift.’

I couldn’t agree more. Let’s be honest: brows are important!

On that note don’t forget about your lashes either! A great lashes product that I have found (that is also a multi-tasker and anti-ageing eye contour serum as well!) is Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 for Eyes & Lashes Vichy.Co. It’s the first anti-ageing and lash fortifying eye serum from Vichy with Rhamnose, ceramide and instant light reflectors.

    Eyebrows can make or break your face, that’s for sure.
