South West-based make-up artist Heather Card talks brows

Bride sits whilst make-up artist Heather Card applies makeup

Heather Card is a fully insured, professional make-up artist specialising in airbrush make-up covering weddings across the South West. We catch up with her to hear her tips about achieving the perfect brow.

She tells us, "I tend to recommend natural, refined and defined brows for my brides. They always need attention as part of the make-up application because some are naturally desirable and may only require a tidy up and a bit of powder to define them while others may be sparse, narrow or too thin."

She continues, "There are many good-quality brow products on the market. I like to use Brow Blade in taupe by Urban Decay which is a pencil and ink that are both waterproof. I also like to work with Brow Zings by Benefit which is a gel and powder. I recommend using a brow powder because it's easy to apply and you're less likely to make a mistake."

"Now it's time to choose your brow shape. They may just need brushing through with some powder to even out any sparse areas. Use upwards strokes when applying brow powder, gel and pencil so that you don't flatten them. You need to accentuate the arch shape so using a thin-angled brush to apply powders or gels, remove any excess product. Start from the ends of each brow, working towards the middle, so the darkest point is at the end faded towards the centre of the face near the bridge of the nose.
