- Show some skin! Avoid filling the brow opaquely, visible slithers of the skin beneath your brow hairs ensures the most natural of finishes!
- Colour selection is crucial! All of your hard work will be undermined by poor colour selection. Choosing the right colour is an easy twostep process involving tone and shade. Are your brows cool or warm toned? Cool tones show shades of ash, taupe, grey and black, whilst warm tones show shades of gold, red and auburn. From here, select your brow product’s shade.
