Stars like Jason Momoa (à la Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones) and Tom Hanks (circa his Cast Away days) might have pulled it off, but for today’s modern gentleman, the unkempt caveman look really has no place.
Industry heavyweights certainly agree. Chanel recently unveiled their first makeup collection for men, Boy de Chanel, featuring a host of products that shape, fill and define the arches, while the season’s biggest shows, from Edward Crutchley to Dsquared2 and Daks, were dominated by full, structured yet well-trimmed brows that accented the models’ chiselled features.
To get the look, pluck and trim every two weeks after a hot shower when hair is at its softest, apply a soothing balm and colour away. Below are some of the must-have products you'll need to for attractive, kempt and modern brows:
Boy de Chanel Eyebrow Pencil
Natural brows are rarely evenly covered from tip to tip. Fill in your brow gaps with this high quality pencil and spoolie. Available at Chanel.
Benefit Grooming Tweezer & Brush
Too many strays or feeling a little too bushy up there? This tweezer comes with an eyebrow brush, so you can comb and pluck for greater precision. Available at Sephora.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow Eyebrow
Urban Decay Brow Box
For a softer brow look, try powder with Urban Decay's Brow Box. Darker colours than picture above available for men with black hair. Available at Sephora.
Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist Shadow, Liner, Brow
For dark brows to really frame the rest of your features, kajal is the product you need. Available at Shiseido.
Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel
Besides kajal, pigmented gel is another product to capitalise on if you're in need of darker, stronger brows. Available at Sephora.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
Anastasia is an OG when it comes to eyebrow styling. For men who don't need much makeup on their brows, a clear brow gel will help shape and accentuate what you've already been blessed with. Available at Sephora.
