It’s starting to look like big brows might be back, but then again, when did they ever go off trend? And one person rocking them as of late is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
Yes, as a result of lockdown, we’ve had to maintain the upkeep of our own brows and, as can be expected, many of us have let them do their thing and become, well, bushy!
Fear not though, as Kate Middleton, who recently surprised a care home with virtual bingo, is currently rocking the bushy brow look too but with serious style, as is always the case with the mum-of-three.

Brow expert Leigh Blackwell, who is the founder of The London Brow Company, has dubbed Kate’s look as the “fluffy, natural, I just woke up like this” look, and talked OK! online through how to achieve the coveted eyebrow style.
How to copy Kate’s bushy brows
Leigh says: “Use a highlighter and gently outline the shape you want for your brows. This will give you a guide of which hairs to tweeze and which hairs to leave.
“To keep a bushy brow don't tweeze too much, only the areas in the middle of your eyebrows to avoid the monobrow and under your brow. Try and leave the top of your brows alone, this will add to the full look you are trying to achieve.”
When it comes to filling in the brow, Leigh advises using a brow pencil and “gently, using upward strokes, fill in the brow from underneath.”

She continues: “If you have areas that need more filling in then use more pressure on your pencil. This will increase colour in those areas, and if you have areas that are dense with brow hair, then only use light strokes.
“Remember you are trying to keep the brows as natural and soft as possible but still create a full look.”
A little tip that Leigh adds when it comes to applying pencil is: “When using a pencil, make sure you very gently colour the starts of your eyebrows. You don't want a visible line or a block start, you want to create a soft fluffy look. Leave the strays at the start of your brow, they help create the natural look.”

After using the pencil, you’ll then move onto a brush to “soften the pencil and blend it into your brow hair.”
Finally, to fully obtain the Kate look, you can use highlight under the brow and shape into the brow arch. Then once you’re happy with your shape and colour, you could use a brow gel to keep the brows in place.

Leigh says: “Brush this over your brows to lift the brows and set them into the areas that may be sparse or need more of a lift. Play with your brow gel and create fullness and texture for your brows.
“This is a great time to have some fun and be creative with your brows. Let them get wild, have fun with the full fluffy look and experiment with different brow products to achieve the look that is uniquely you!”
