Pump those brows.

Bold fuller brows are so 2014!

Blame it on Cara Delevingne who I loveeeeee!










But what are you supposed to do if you aren’t blessed in the brow department or you tweezed them all out in the ’90s because you loved Pamela Anderson or are you simply scared of augmenting your assets with a little pencil and powder action?










I’m here to help and give you a few pointers. As I’ve had experience.. I tweezed way to much in the 90’s and therefore have to tend to my brows every day with love and care.  I’ve tried to grow them back over the last couple of years but it’s just not happening! 🙁











The first step to your brows is tweezing and knowing where to tweeze.  Using your eyeball as a guide, line up the handle of the makeup brush on the outer edge of or your iris. Wherever it hits—that’s your arch. You should have a natural arch in your brows that you should follow. This is where you’ll take the most hair. But keep in mind that may only be a few hairs or a lot of blondies.. Depending on how hairy those brows are 🙂 Remember to also hold your skin tight with the other hand while tweezing.  This will help with the pain and also prevent the hair from breaking.






Use this diagram as a guide.  But be careful not to take to much from the top and ends of your brows.  The ends are always the hardest to grow back.

Filling your brows in








You can fill in your brows with a pencil or powder and an angled brush—use whichever one you’re most comfortable with. If your brows are particularly sparse, I suggest a two-step approach. First use a pencil painting wispy light feathery strokes to create the illusion of real hairs and create the shape then  a powder to soften the pencil with a small angled brush.  I also like to brush the hairs with a clean mascara wand during this whole process to smooth it all out even more.

Natural brow look but still drawn in.  Follow the instructions above.








Heavy Brows…  Yes these are the fashion right now.
There is nothing natural about this look.. Be heavy handed.  Draw a square lines with that pencil or gel liner an accentuate the points.   Then fill it in with a shadow of a touch lighter shade.









Don’t do this!
Do not in any way do something like this!!!










Last of all if your having trouble shaping your own brows why not come into Esstudio and see me.  I can also give you tips on how to shape and draw them in!


Good luck!

Bangin’ Brows

First, before I even start… PUT THE TWEEZERS DOWN AND STEP AWAY FROM THE MIRROR! Yeah, I’m talking to you.
The most common problem with brows these days is over plucking!
Lets be honest, we have all done it, plucked those few extra hairs in hope of our brows magically turning out like Kim Kardashians, in reality they turn out like two skinny stick like figurines above each eye :-/

I can not stress enough how important it is to find your ‘brow expert’ to sculpt, shape and colour your brows to suit you! Seriously once you find her or him, you will want to marry them! No Joke.

FYI, here at esstudio we take the time to perfect your face frame. Which includes, eyelash and eyebrow tint and brow wax to accentuate those peepers! Just ask for our face framing package, you wont regret it! Our in house beauty therapist Jacqui Arnold is the bees-knees of brow sculpting.  http://esstudio.com.au/menu/beauty/

Am I making myself clear here? Your brows are VERY important!

One visit a month is generally what it takes to keep those perfect brows of yours groomed.
A perfect brow will compliment your whole look and frame your face.
A few plucks here and there at home to maintain are acceptable, but lets not get crazy and leave it up to the experts….ok?!

Here are some techniques a professional will take into consideration while working on you, they wont just fling wax around up there.  It is serious business, the expert will take the time to study your brows, your shape, the way the hair grows and then creatively and very delicately they will sculpt your brow to suit your face frame. Then ta-da!!!!! Insert bangin’ brows!

Brows have been an increasingly growing trend, gone are the days where we didn’t really care about our brow shape. As long as they weren’t bushy and fluffy and the mono brow wasn’t starting to form then we were just happy to have a clean smooth area.

Now its all about getting the perfect shape to suit your face and tone.
Fuller and thicker brows are in and here to stay!
So get amongst it! If you haven’t got quite as much hair to fill in those gaps, that are pretty obvious and sticking out from over plucking, don’t fret! There are so many more ways to ‘fill’ the brow line.

Some great tips are to use a brow pencil, or a brow shadow, or have your brows tinted regularly to keep that shape looking full and glam!
These are all easy enough to DIY at home, your personal brow expert will show you how and you will never look back!


Sooooo… what are you waiting for?! Go and get your bangin’ brows!
