Brows are trending in 2021 and naturally thick is well and truly the new thin.
The 70s and 80s trend of over-plunked, thin, pencilled in brows is a moment in history that we will
remember but, for the sake of our brows, hopefully never see return into the world of beauty.
Overtime we have realised that these pencil-thin brows are often unflattering, unnatural and age
our facial structure. The latest obsession in brows can be broken down to simply: the bushier and
fuller, the better. These bushy brows add symmetry to your face and complement the dimensions
of your face.
We are seeing a lot of celebrities growing out their brows to make them longer and fluffier to
achieve the must-have brows in 2021. However, if you are like a number of Aussies who after years
of plucking, waxing and threading is struggling to grow out your natural brow, or the brow Gods
simply didn’t bless you with a symmetrical bold brow, there are other options.
I have always had a flare for beauty, makeup and eyebrow shaping. My passion for helping to
empower women to feel their best took me down the journey of opening my own brow studio. Ten
years later, I am still just as obsessed with my job. Over this time I have seen my fair share of
eyebrow trends fly in and out, but with that being said I cannot see this fluffy, full brow trend going
There are a number of ways you can achieve a natural looking bushy brow, starting with as simple
as a brow pencil, all the way through to permanent makeup tattooing.
Waxed and reshaped brushed brows
Brows are the most important feature on your face, which is why employing an experienced brow
artists to discuss your brow goals with you, then measure and draw up your brows is just so
Under the guidance of an expert, you can work together to find a shape that you’re happy with that
they will then perform a wax on to leave you with perfect brows to suit your face.
The biggest no-no when it comes to brows is not being able to put down the tweezers. Once your
hairs are plucked, there is no way to go back, so be selective if you choose to try this option at
home. While a wax and reshape is a relatively time effective and affordable technique, unless you
have a significant amount of natural brow hair to work with, it will be challenging to achieve the
fluffy, full brow look that celebrities are rocking.
Brushed brows deliver a natural fuller look taking advantage of your features and existing brow
This brow technique will give your brows a more defined effect that is all achievable through tinting
and sculpting. The method uses a coloured tint that closely matches your natural brow, to give you
a more defined and fuller brow. The benefit of HD brows is that you won’t need to powder or full in
your brows again. The hair tint will also last up to three weeks.
If you want to step up your brow game with a more intense, longer lasting tint, henna stains the
skin and is a great substitute for cosmetic tattooing. The henna tint is left on longer at the tail of
your brow and less at the beginning of your brow to achieve an aesthetic ombre look that will last
for up to a month.
Yes, you heard that right, laminated brows are the look of the season. Laminating your brows
straightens them in an upwards directions using a keratin solution. Think straight perm for your
eyebrows. This leaves you with a fuller and glossy look that is very similar to that of feathering.
Also known as feathering, microblading is the crème de la crème of brow procedures. If you want a
runway-ready brow, then this is the procedure for you. Microblading is a manual process of semi-
permanent makeup that uses a micro-blade to create fine brush strokes in the illusion of hair to
create a more realistic appearance for cosmetic tattooing.
Microblading is our overwhelmingly, number one service at Lana Tarek Brow Specialists. The
procedure achieves a natural and hyper realistic look that is straight from a magazine. When
combined with microshading, you can achieve a 3D yet airbrushed finish.
