At Home and DIY:

Catrice Brow Kit: An absolute winner from budget friendly brand Catrice this mini kit comes in at under €5 and contains two brow shades as well as a miniature tweezers, an angled brush for ease of application and little grooming brush too.
HD Brows: The Process of HD Brows takes about an hour and involves a combination of hair removal techniques including; waxing, threading and tweezing first to create the perfect shape before tinting to create a more defined over all look. Depending on how well you’ve kept your brows groomed in the past, there’s usually a little make-up added to give the perfect finishing touches.
Embrowdery: Becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to tattooing the technique of Embrowdery originated in Asia before crossing to our shores. Fine strokes of pigment are added to the upper layers of skin to create life like hairs, blending in seamlessly with your own brows the Embrowdery strokes allow you to effectively regain the appearance of full brows which may have thinned over the years through over plucking, illness or aging. With this technique clients are able to reshape and define brows with results lasting between 18months and 2 years.
