The Duchess of Cambridge and her Bobbi Brown brows
Earlier this month we told you that sales of eyebrow grooming kits had apparently risen by a staggering 60 percent in the UK. Why? Ask the Duchess of Cambridge! The lovely Kate Middleton is well known inflicting 'the Kate Effect' across the world, and it doesn't stop at her attire; it seems the public are desperate for the secrets behind her perfectly sculpted brows.
The Internet has been abuzz this morning with reports that Kate was given a step-by-step tutorial on how to define her eyebrows at the Bobbi Brown counter at the Peter Jones store in London's Sloane Square. As a frequent visitor, Catherine obviously trusts the make-up artists there, and chose to participate in a free session where staff taught her to apply a dark shade of their £15.50 shadow (Kate apparently left with 'Saddle') with a slanted brush to fill in her brows.
On the Bobbi Brown website, a 'Bobbi Tip' suggests defining brows by lightly applying the shadow with the brands own award winning £21 angled brow brush. The application tip reads as follows: Use brush to pick up a small amount of eye shadow toned to your natural hair colour; tap off excess. Begin at inner corner of brow and follow its shape, working outwards using light, feathery strokes. Brush through brows with an upward, outward motion to blend and soften.
According to the Daily Mail, the fashionable Duchess also picked up a few extra pieces on her visit (don't we all Kate, don't we all) which are thought to include a £15 long wearing lip liner in 'Brownie Pink', and an £18 semi-matte lipstick called 'Sandwash Tulle', which is a soft neutral pink number.
I've got to hand it to K-Mid, influencing women to groom their eyebrows properly is probably the best thing she's been responsible for yet! A well-groomed brow is important, not just because it stops you from looking like an over plucked chicken, but because it forms the basis of your whole beauty look, framing your face and emphasising your eyes. If you want to emulate Kate's arches we suggest a quick trip to your nearest Bobbi Brown!
