BIG brows have been in the fashion spotlight for several seasons and, now that you've grown them out, the key is to keep them full but tidy. Autumn/winter 2013's handsome beauty looks were always underpinned by a pair of strong and well-groomed brows, with Stella McCartney, Chloe, Balmain and Victoria Beckham showcasing the most stylish examples.
And the "natural look" is no longer enough - brow make-up is essential for truly polished results.
"Pencils are great for women who want to draw in shape - filling brows will make them look fuller and define your eye area," says Shavata Singh, owner of Shavata Brow Studio. "To apply, use soft, sweeping movements."
Even women with naturally thick brows should use brow colour for added depth - just pick a colour close to your own to fill in gaps and enhance shape. To complete the look, and for extra polish, eyebrow gel will hold hairs neatly in place all day.
But the ultimate building block for great brows is paying them plenty of attention - and seeking the help of a brow expert is a good start. Having your brows professionally shaped will provide the perfect base for a style that complements your own face and eye shape. From there, you can carry on the good work yourself. And work it is - maintenance should be daily, according to Singh: "It's a lot easier to tweeze one or two stray hairs everyday and maintain the correct shape, than doing it once a week."

How do you keep your brows in shape? Do you have any favourite products? I was thinking of doing permanent make up, so I wouldn't have to do my brows every day. That would be so much easier. Well I got already a voucher so in January I will be heading to beautician:-) I will definitely share my experience with you.
