Flick through to the beauty pages and you’ll find a rather wonderful feature dedicated to the latest brow trends and the hottest brow treatments guaranteed to give your face a real transformation. Sound good? We think so!

Although we all know the power of a winning bold brow- be it the strong-arched Hollywood, the structured power-brow or the brushed-up baby brow- it’s crucial to remember that a successful brow will also alter your facial proportions, so it’s important to think about the rest of your make-up too in order to make the look really pop. Hurry up and get your pretty paws on the latest issue of Grazia for the full brow 411, and in the meantime, read on for our top make-up tips to make your brows wow...

We all know (and love) the power of a perfectly groomed brow- it can frame your eyes, determine expression and can make you look fresh and beautiful, even when you’re not, which might just make the bold brow your BBF (that’s best beauty friend, FYI) for the booze and party-filled festive season. Just remember the golden rule and keep the rest of your make-up pared down to really show off your brows.

We caught up with Laura Mercier’s Global Artist Trevor O’Keeffe who shared with us his top tips for creating the perfect flawless complexion to team with your new facial friends. Us beauty ladies have long been fans of the nude make-up look so we weren’t surprised to hear that sales figures at John Lewis reflect this latest beauty trend, with sales of primers up 44%, tinted moisturisers up 12% and BB creams up 71%. It’s time to make your brows pop, girls! Read on for Trevor’s top tips…

1. PRIME THE SKIN

“Primer is a lightweight, creamy gel, which is used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements leaving make-up looking fresh and colour-true the entire day.”

2. APPLY FOUNDATION

“Make-up should look as natural as possible, and Laura Mercier’s Foundations and Tinted Moisturisers, which come in a rich range of shades and finishes, are perfect for the barely there look.”

3. APPLY CONCEALER

“The revolutionary and highly pigmented Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, £26 and Secret Concealer, £18 cover discolorations, blemishes, under-eye circles, scars and imperfections.”

4. SET WITH POWDER

“Setting Powder is the key to perfectly flawless and long-lasting makeup. It contains little or no pigment, so there will never be any caking or discolouration of makeup.”
