Eyebrow do's and dont's!

DO...try a fibre brow gel such as the newly launched must have tinted brow mascara from Lord & Berry. It is designed to hydrate, enhance and define your eyebrows whilst tinting. A great product for filling in brow gaps whilst still looking natural.

DON’T... go product-free. Whilst the natural look is fully promoted, a little bit of love and attention before leaving the house will go a long way when it comes to your brows. Even if it’s a quick 3 second sweep with the eyebrow brush.

DO...match your brow colour to your roots. This is the most effective colour matching system to achieve a natural look and framing of your face.
