There are SO many products available at the moment to help make our brows look super defined: from eyeshadows to pencils, stains and coloured wax. For the slightly more subtle look, an eyeshadow carefully applied through the brows using an angled brush is the approach to go for, but if you’re feeling confident I’d recommend a wax or dark stain. These will help not only with the colour, but in creating shape and longevity of style. Key products to look out for include MAC eyeshadows: Espresso and Omega are great brow shades but they have so many neutral, matte colours that the possibilities are endless. Benefit have their bestselling and world famous brow palette 'BrowZings' with uber-pigmented shades that really help to create fabulous brows, while Sleek's Brow Kit dupe is great for those on a budget. Brow pencils are hard to get right, so if you're on a budget make sure you test the pencil before you make a purchase to save wasted pennies.

Before rushing into growing (or drawing in) big and bold brows this season, please do take your face shape into account. Not all brow shapes suit everyone and some of us may not only be afraid to take the plunge into Cara land, but it may just not suit us or our style. As an alternative an arched brow gives a striking look without being too overwhelming or face-consuming. Benefit's iconic brow style can be created on practically any canvas, so why not pop along to a boutique for a consultation and quick re-style? The good thing about brows is that they re-grow, so don't be afraid to try something a little different or play around with some great products from the comfort of your bedroom. Now it's just up to us to decide which look to go for...
