Brows down pat

Text: Renée Batchelor

Not good with your brows, but always dreaming of achieving that multi-dimensional effect? Now you can with this nifty new innovation from Benefit

Hands up if you're a bit of makeup dummy? There's no shame, as even the most put-together ladies among us sometimes have trouble with perfecting their eyeliner or keeping their red lippie from bleeding something furious. Don't even start on getting our brows perfectly even, filled-in without looking fake-y, and having that lush, 3D effect. Benefit has a pretty extensive brow collection already, but their latest innovation cleverly fills a niche heretofore unserved. This mini brow palette, divides the brow into two shades for a more believable finish. Say bye to misshapen or caterpillar brows with this new ombré-effect tool, that recreates the look of a natural brow, that tends to look darker from the mid-arch to the ends, and lighter at the inner corners.

Foolproof brows

To use this easy-peasy palette, sweep the lighter shade from the start of the brow to your arch then lightly apply the darker shade from the arch to the tail. It comes with a foolproof blending sponge, and a small spoolie brush, so you can blend it well after you're done to diffuse any harshness. Voila! Perfect brows with minimal effort and practically no guesswork. Plus the well-designed proportion of product means you should use the powder up quite evenly, so there's little to no wastage.
