Natural foundation done right can look seamless but no matter how light your hand is with an eyebrow pencil or powder, drawn in brows look drawn in. I wanted to try out a more natural way to fill in my gaps. Here I just used Duo eyelash glue and ModelsPrefer clear eyebrow gel to hold everything in place. Although it looks very natural, it’s an arduous process and doesn’t stick to the bare skin very long. I would only recommend it for photos taken in harsh lighting with a good quality camera. Your regular iPhone camera will make it look the same as drawn in brow.

JAZZ PAMPLING- THE EYEBROW WHISPERER

image

I had my eyebrows threaded and cut into thin high arches for years before I realised it looked terrible. Two years ago I started going to my now dear friend Jazz Pampling, a celeb eyebrow artist residing in Sydney.
She made me realise a few things:
1. High arches do not “open up your eyes”. They exaggerate your lids and makes them look puffy. Puffy lids make your eyes look smaller.
2. Thin eyebrows make you look older. This isn’t an issue when you’re young but once you hit your late 20s you’ll notice. 
3. Each time you pluck your brow you damage the follicle. Excessive plucking over time minimises the ability for the hair to grow back. Thin eyebrows in your youth means thin eyebrows when you’re old.

These were all the problems I had with my harsh arches but I didn’t know any better. Over the past two years Jazz has changed my shape by giving me a lower arch, a fuller brow and an overall better shape. She also ‘snaps’ my brows instead of cutting them into shape, giving them a soft natural finish.

Jazz is an absolute genius and shapes you a brow which best suits YOUR face rather than working off a template. She spends an entire hour carefully handplucking which means NO MISTAKES or irritated skin. Honestly the best decision I have ever made.
If you live in Sydney book a session ASAP!
