No one induces eyebrow envy quite like Cara Delevingne. The British model and actress has the most famous brows in the game; they’re full, bushy and we just can’t get enough. Ever since she burst onto the scene, Cara has inspired us all to ditch the tweezers, reach for the eyebrow pencil and embrace a fuller brow. If you’re looking to get the Cara Delevingne brow look, here’s our top tips.
Get eyebrows like Cara if you have bushy brows
If you’re blessed with naturally full brows like Cara, lucky you! It won’t take much work to achieve that power brow look; we’d recommend a slick of clear eyebrow gel to set everything in place. If you do have any gaps, an ultra-fine brow pencil like our Pro Pencil will help to add in hair strokes that look totally natural.
In a recent interview with Byrdie, Cara gave her top tips for grooming bushy brows: “Keep them as wild as possible and letting their natural shape go. As for filling them in, stick to the same shape, although of course, it all depends on your face shape.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Brows should be bespoke to you, so ensuring they suit your face shape will frame your face and flatter your features. Head to our Ultimate Brow Guide to find the right brows to suit your face shape.
Fake brows like Cara if you have sparse eyebrows
We’re not all blessed with brows like Cara, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your power brow goals. If you have sparse or overplucked eyebrows, you may find you need to need to regrow some areas to achieve a naturally bushier look, but an eyebrow growth serum will help to speed this up. If you’re not really sure where to begin, book in for a consultation with an HD Brows stylist who’ll be able to advise you on a regrowth programme.
In the mean time, you can fake it ‘til you make it with make up. If you have a lot of gaps or sparse areas, lightly layering textures can help to add dimension and depth. Start off by using a powder to create a base shade and build up the brow shape. A brow palette is great is it allows you to mix shades for a perfect colour match. Take some product on a Fine Angled Brow Brush and focus on applying it from the arch to the tip of the tail. You can run any remaining product through the front of the brow for a softer finish.
We can then add the illusion of hair. A slim, retractable eyebrow pencil creates soft, hair-like strokes in any gaps in the brow. If you really want to go all out, finish with a tinted brow gel to accentuate your natural hairs and add volume. Brush the hairs in an upwards motion for an instantly fuller look.
Remember, we’re building up depth and colour, so be sure to be really light-handed with each product if you don’t want anything too heavy or blocky.
