Bold brows are still very much on trend, but what if you’ve been cursed with sparse arches?

2. Try a tint

Much like colouring your hair, it’s best left to a professional. See the Benefit website for your nearest location, where tinting starts from £13.

At Shavata Brow Studios, tinting costs £14 and the brand offers an at-home product, too.

3. Build your brows

To add volume and definition to your brows, choose a product that contains microfibres that cling to your existing brow hairs.

“Add volume with Benefit Gimme Brow+,” Lauren Hogsden, senior trend team make-up artist at Benefit

“This tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and hairs, creating natural-looking fullness and definition in an instant. It’s one of my personal favourites.”

4. Pick up a pencil

“Add colour with an ultra-fine brow defining pencil that delivers believable hair-like strokes,” Hogsden advises.

“I would suggest looking for one that has a twist up applicator - look for either a super fine point or flat blade shape,” make-up artist Frey-ja Barker says.

“I’ve seen a lot of dark brows. This is a trend I would like to soften, especially if you are fair haired. My favourite brow colour is YSL pencil number 4, Ash. It is almost a grey green shade, and suits the majority of people.”

5. Paint with a pomade

Barker says: “For anyone with more of an artistic flair, a brow pomade is another great option for creating the look of fuller brows. It tends to come in a little ink pot and applied using a brush. I would suggest using a short haired slim angled brush as it will allow you to mimic hair using little strokes.”
