How To Get Brows Like Frida
because eyebrows are like frames for your eyes
Art x Style 24 Dec 2019

Frida Kahlo is known for many things, her activism, her art and her incredible style. She has a distinct look too, most notably her brows. The world has been inspired by Frida for years, from tacos to fashion, there are many people who have called Frida their muse. But what about beauty? Frida is famous for her eyebrows, and eyebrows are a defining facial feature, framing our eyes. But, how do we keep them in check? Here are the favourite brow gels, together with recommendations from the art girls who love them!

Glossier: Boy Brow

Everyone is crazy about Glossier right now, so this should come as no surprise. “It is affordable, long-lasting and is built upon strengthening the bushy brow”, says an arty pal, adding, “[It’s] a beauty trend that finally caters to hairy women.” 
 
NYX: Control Freak Eyebrow Gel

An affordable option that’s highly reviewed online. “It doesn’t stick and it fixes my brows really well” explains a friend. 
 
Charlotte Tilbury: Legendary Brows

This one has been likened as a dupe for Glossier’s boy brow, so it’s perfect for those who can’t get their hands on the brand. “It’s a great purchase” a pal agrees, “And most importantly it doesn’t give you that ‘I’ve glued my eyebrows onto my face’ look.” Something we can definitely get behind…
 
Anastasia Beverly Hills: Tinted Brow Gel

The tinted nature of Anastasia Beverly Hills’s gel is what sold many art girls I spoke to. “It stays on all day without looking weird and glossy” they explained. 
 
And for those who want something low-key….Vaseline

Any Brits reading this article will be all too familiar with trusty Vaseline (or petroleum jelly for the uninitiated), the one-stop-shop answer to all your beauty needs. I spoke to numerous people who said this was the ultimate low-key trick to fixing your brows!
