A recent beauty trend has us shunning our tweezers and dreaming of bushier days.
We love catwalker Arizona Muse’s and red carpet Rooney Mara’s thick eyebrows, but re-growing them after years of plucking is a challenge for some, and the hair might need a little boost to achieve its former glory. This editor played guinea pig with B.Kamins Eyelash Fortifier, a product enriched with peptides, plant extracts and vitamins, using it on both the brows and the lashes, and she can (almost) outbrow and outlash the two aforementioned divas to shame. —Anya Georgijevic

Google “famous eyebrows” and you get Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Brooke Shields. All give good brow and with the opening of Benefit’s new Brow Bar, so can you.
On the ground floor of Holt Renfrew we took a seat in a silver chair and let Benefit’s Arch Empress of Brows, Hilary Foote, work her brow know-how. With mathematical precision, she waxed off what didn’t belong and filled in the areas where we were overzealous with the tweezers, leaving us with shapely brows that start, end and bend where they should.
Now that’s raising an eyebrow.

We're all familiar with eyebrow purgatory. Whether some over-zealous tweezing accidentally took you pencil thin or a late-night attack on a creeping mono-brow went a shade too far —you can stop suffering; an expert is at hand.
Damone Roberts, a.k.a. "The Eyebrow King" from 10 Years Younger believes that every face deserves the perfect frame.
After years of disappointment, he developed his very own line and counts Madonna and the newlywed Beyonce among his loyal fans.
The Damone Roberts Brow Kit contains everything from his world-class tweezers to his signature brow shadow to his truly invisible brow gel. Most importantly, it comes with step-by-step instructions on how to get naturally sculpted, never severe brows.
At $150 a go, the kit is a bit of an investment but if you really want to look ten years younger, great brows trump Botox every time.
