I have a bit of a girl crush on British model Cara Delevingne (doesn't everyone?)! She was recently called ‘The Face’ of the Autumn/Winter 2013 season by Vogue, with divine eyebrows which are lusted after by the beauty-savvy all around the world.
This year, Cara modelled for some of the biggest designer names at London Fashion Week - such as Moschino, Jason Wu, Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Stella McCartney and Chanel. She also starred in advertising campaigns for luxury brands Burberry, Chanel and DKNY. This has led to her being tipped as the next Kate Moss to take the fashion world by storm – and she’s only 20 years old!
There is no doubt that she has been blessed with good looks, including those eyebrows, but what are her beauty secrets?
1. Let your eyebrows grow.
In an interview published by Look magazine, Cara claimed that she never touches her eyebrows, apart from ‘the bit in the middle’. She doesn’t wax or thread them, which is why they look so thick and luscious.
2. Invest in a good tweezer.
Use ‘Tweezerman for Benefit Slant Tweezer’ (£19.50) to pluck stray hairs underneath your eyebrows, as well as ‘the bit in the middle’, but don’t use your tweezer to define your brows. Be natural, like Cara!
3. Keep eyebrows in check using brow gel.
Cara also revealed in her interview for Look that she uses ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel’ (£16.50) to define the shape of her brows and dye them darker than her natural hair colour. This is her must-have product, therefore invest in this to achieve the look!
4. Define your eyelashes, as well as your brows.
Even though her eyebrows draw attention when you look at Cara, she uses ‘Chanel Sublime de Chanel Infinite Length and Curl Mascara’ (£23.00) for volume, shape and definition on her lashes in order to bring out her eyes as well.
5. Draw attention to your lips.
To balance the aesthetic of her face and highlight her lips, Cara wears lipglosses like ‘Burberry Lip Glow in Rosewood’ (£18.50). She says it comes with her everywhere, like a trusty lip product should.
6. Buy a Tangle Teezer.
As well as fascinating eyebrows, Cara also has envious locks. She never goes anywhere without her Tangle Teezer (£11.20) which explains why she’s always photographed with perfect hair!
7. Moisturise at every opportunity.
Cara swears by face cream to hydrate her skin after the number of times that make-up is applied, taken off and then re-applied during fashion week. She uses Live Live Bee Yummy Skin Food as it’s ‘amazing and totally organic’ (£76.03) – it might be expensive but it’s worth it, according to Cara!
8. Use skin wipes to take off your make-up.
Cara uses ‘Simple Cleansing Wipes’ (£3.19) to take off her mascara, lipgloss and brow gel, amongst other make-up products, to let her skin breathe at night. At such a bargain price, there is no reason not to do the same; this will avoid any oil build-ups which can result in spots and blemishes.
Who would have thought that the secret behind how to get eyebrows like Cara Delevingne revolves around one product - in the form of ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel’? It just proves that investing in a few key beauty products, and getting into a routine with them, is the easiest way to get celebrity style and look as fabulous as they do on a daily basis.
