Beauty Challenge 1: How to create bold brows and extend your tail
For our first challenge, we helped bh’s Sam to extend her brow tail. Thanks to some serious over-plucking as a teenager, the ends of her brows needed extending. To figure out where your brows should end, use a spoolie with a long handle, angling it from the edge of the nostril to the outer corner of the eye. Make a small mark where the brow needs to end, then start to fill in the brow with small, light strokes. I like the use the Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder because the super soft powder makes it easy to precisely fill, shape and define your brow look. Once you’ve finished filling in the brow, use a concealer brush with a small amount of concealer to clean up the area around the brow to ensure a defined shape.
Beauty Challenge 2: How to get clump-free lashes
Next, we helped bh’s Kate to lengthen and define her lashes, without any clumpiness. Always use an eyelash curler before applying mascara, to help your lashes hold the curl for longer. An eyelash curler is a fantastic tool for girls with short, faint lashes. When you’re applying your mascara, wiggle the brush back and forth at the base of your lashes, then swipe it up towards the tips. This ensures that most of the product is at the base of the lashes. Clumpy mascara is a big culprit in making lashes look sparse, short and stumpy, so you want to make sure your formula stays clump-free. Rimmel’s Volume Shake Mascara feature a cool shaker system that refreshes the volumising formula whenever it’s needed - so it never dries out.
Beauty Challenge 3: How to create long-lasting, even brows
Our final challenge was with bh’s Bianca, who wanted her brows to look more even and last all day. First, use a spoolie to brush through your eyebrows and find any areas that are uneven. The Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder is great for patchy, thin brows, as it gives the depth of a power, while the applicator gives the definition of a brow pencil. It’s also transfer-proof, so your brows won’t budge. Using the brow that’s in better shape as a guide, fill in any patchy areas with the Brow Shake Filling Powder, using small, short strokes. Continue to fill in the brows until they match. Use a concealer brush with a small amount of concealer to clean up the area around the brow for a clean shape.
