Who doesn't want a pair of fuller and thicker brows that can make you look more youthful? Unfortunately, we aren’t all blessed with thick brows, so we have to resort to filling them in, shaping them, and grooming them.

It's simple to achieve, but it’s easier than you think to go overboard with the brow pencil or pomade or shadow – leading to extremely dark brows that can overpower your whole face. Thank the beauty gods then for the ‘smoky brows’ trend because its gradient finish makes it look more natural and soft, beautifully framing all face shapes!

So if you want to get a pair of bushy and natural face-framers, keep reading below for the 3 easy steps on how you can recreate the ‘smoky brows’ trend!

--------------------------


Use light strokes to fill in your brows

The best and quickest tool to fill in brows is by the use of a brow pencil. Before filling them in, though, take a spoolie and brush your brow hairs up so you can see their natural shape. Next, lightly draw hair-like strokes on your sparse areas and brush your spoolie over them to evenly distribute the product and avoid harsh lines.

Darken the tail of your brow

Every one says that our brows have a natural gradient effect – light in front and dark at the back. So to make it look like you were born with the best brows in the world, remember that the tail must always be the darkest part. But be careful to not overdraw them! Always use a light hand even when darkening a certain area of your brow because it’s easier to add, than to erase.


Set them in place with a gel

To ensure that your brows will stay in place and not fade, set them with a brow gel! Whether it’s clear or tinted is entirely up to you as both will still keep your brow hairs looking sleek and in place!

To rock a nude look, opt for rose and beige tones! Apply Clinique’s Lid Pop in Vanilla all over your eyelids and on the inner corners to really brighten up your peepers.

Next, groom your brows so that they gorgeously frame your face, and layer on coats of brow gel to define them!

Ask any woman what she wants her skin to be and she’ll tell you these three things: smooth, translucent, and radiant. These three qualities can also be found in peonies, flowers that are known throughout the world for their delicate beauty, which are also the main ingredient in L’OCCITANE’s Pivoine Sublime range!


The birth of the Pivoine Sublime collection last year unveiled an exquisite line of perfecting products for every skin type, which were all powered by the Perfecting Peony Complex – a peony extract that is combined with active ingredients that refine skin’s texture, hydrate, minimise pores, and blur away imperfections such as fine lines.

Now L’OCCITANE has released 3 new products which will allow you to complete your perfecting skincare routine through cleansing, exfoliating, and toning with the new 2 in 1 Perfecting Scrub, Perfecting Make-up Remover, and Perfecting Toner.

So keep scrolling down to learn more about how these new additions will give you the skin of your dreams!

Perfecting Make-up Remover


The Perfecting Make-up Remover is the first step in your skincare routine as it removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and grime. It's enhanced with “Pivoine Perfecteur” extract, which gently melts away makeup and other impurities without stripping the skin of its moisture, resulting in clean, petal-soft skin!

2 in 1 Perfecting Scrub

After cleansing your skin, take the Perfecting Scrub to slough away any dead skin cells and reveal smoother and more refined skin. You can use it either as a face scrub or as a face mask, as its gel-to-oil texture and delicate micro granules will gently exfoliate your skin and leave it supple and ready for the next step!


Perfecting Toner


To finish your cleansing routine, take the Perfecting Toner to refresh and hydrate your complexion, and get it ready to drink in your serum and moisturiser! The Perfecting Toner is enriched with "Pivoine Perfecteur" extract as well to minimise pores and give your complexion a burst of lightweight hydration!
