If Rihanna’s recent Vogue cover had you sweating that skinny brows were making a comeback, we’re here to tell you not to fear.
For one, you can wear your eyebrows however the hell you damn want, regardless of trends (but it is handy to take your face shape into account). And two, we’re all about the ‘lion mane’ brow right now, which sees tweezers and shaping take a backseat altogether.

That’s right, literally no plucking, threading, waxing or hair removal of any kind is necessary to pull off these natural bushy brows.

The trend is very similar to feathered brows, the only difference being that the area underneath the arch remains completely untouched, doing away with any shaping whatsoever.

In fact if anything, MORE hairs are added in this area to form one powerful hairy halo above the eye. The effect is similar to that of a full, fluffy lion’s mane and it’s definitely becoming king of the beauty jungle in our eyes.
When it comes to styling, simply use a hard-setting gel to brush them upwards, like The Body Shop’s Lash & Brow Gel (£10), or if you like to give them a deeper colour while you’re at it, Glossier’s Boy Brow (£14).

If you’re too impatient to wait for your hairs to grow back, use a super slim brush like Zoeva’s Fine Liner brush (£8) and a pomade that matches your brow like Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade (£19) to fill in your arch with thin, hair-like strokes.
