There’s a rumour going round West London that one’s ears and nose continue to grow throughout one’s life. Bad news for the Night Owl who’s just had a big birthday and is a bit sensitive to that sort of information.
Luckily, help is at hand. Apparently, – and I guess, logically, come to think of it – the trick is to make everything else appear larger, such as one’s eyes, brows and lips. (A face equivalent to carrying a large handbag to look physically slimmer). In particular, the larger the brow, the smaller the nose will look (so I’m told by my make-up artist friend). It kind of makes sense. So how to do that? The products on this page have proven very effective.
This tinted L’Oreal gel plumps up the brows by adding fibers to the hairs. All you have to do is brush through the brow.
Use a lighter tone than your brow colour, we found it quite intense. But it’s easy to use and good value.
At £18.50 The Benefit Gimme Brow is a pricier alternative but we think it’s fair enough as the fibres in this appear slightly smaller making it a little easier to create a more natural result.
Finally, if you’re in it for the long term and able to splash out a bit, try the Elizabeth Arden Brow Enhancing Serum. At £90 (4ml), it isn’t cheap. But it works. We have tested it and it delivers. Brush through the brows a couple of times before bedtime, particularly around the thinner areas. Two weeks later (sometimes earlier than that) you’ll have thicker brows.
