How to Get the Perfect Scouse Brow
As the Vajazzle is to Essex, so the Scouse brow is to Merseyside. And if you have no idea of both, you obviously have not been watching either of the two reality programmes that have become increasingly popular over the last few months – The Only Way Is Essex and Desperate Scousewives.
The infamous Scouse brow happens to be the new beauty trend that has swept through Liverpool and is now threatening to take over the world, if not the UK. It came about back in November, when Desperate Scousewives star Jodie Lundstram first sported the look after she tried out for a job as a make-up and hair stylist at a beauty salon. The ensuing result was the birth of the Scouse brow. Most of us didn’t pay it much heed but fellow scousers loved the look and dashed to their nearest salons, or make up bags if they were had no money, to try out the look for themselves.
So how can you get the Perfect Scouse Brow look? It’s simple but easy to get wrong so follow these tips carefully.
- Take your eyebrows and pluck them to within an inch of their lives.
- When there is hardly any hair left, with an eyebrow pencil, draw them back on but make sure they are darker than your normal hair colour.
- If you are having problems with the shape, try out an eyebrow kit.
We have found a super kit for only £12.
Eyebrow Stencil Kit – £12.00
A stencil kit that helps you to create the perfect arch every time by either by filling in or tweezing. The kit includes 4 different eyebrow shapes (with 3 pairs of each style) as well as a double-ended (light and dark) pencil. By simply shading and or tweezing using the eyebrow stencil, you can create the perfect brows.
Drawing a Perfect Scouse Brow
The important part of drawing on your new eyebrows is that you should make them as dark and brutal as possible. And do not, whatever you do, match the colour to your natural hair or eyebrow colour. The point of the Scouse brow is that it stands out from your face and is the first thing that is noticeable. The Scouse brow is not about subtlety or coordination – in fact, the whiter and blonder your hair the better to draw out the black of your new eyebrows.
Rumour has it that the Scouse brow had spread further from the confines of Merseyside and has even been spotted in Chelsea night clubs and on our very own Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton. If you look at her wedding photos to Prince William you can see the beginnings of a Scouse brow but will she go all the way and have a heavier hand next time she draws them on? Time will only tell but word on the London streets is that it was her wedding makeup that started the movement in the first place. The scousers will be furious!
