Eyebrows are the most important part of a person's face, and if you disagree… well, shame on you! 

If you are lusting after the perfect brow, but are struggling to achieve your goals – look no further. 

Microblading is here, and it will leave you with the most ON FLEEK set of brows ever. 

This new technique is semi-permanent and is almost like embroidery of the face. 

According to brow expert Nadia Afanaseva, a special microblading pen is used "to draw on individual strokes one by one. It's an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete."

The technique, which is kind of like very gentle tattooing, lasts up to three years and will fade gradually.

Now, of course this beauty treatment does not come cheap, with prices starting around the €400 mark, and extra costs for annual top-ups. 

However, for a set of powerful brows that you never have to fill in or worry about, that seems pretty reasonable.

Cara Delevigne has been enjoying a slightly quieter life since she hung up her model it-girl boots to focus on her acting career. 

With nine movies and countless modelling gigs under her belt, no one could ever accuse the star of being afraid of hard work.

Unless you're a troll on Twitter, that is.

Now celebrities don't usually respond to online haters, but Cara decided that one troll in particular had gone too far. 

On a tweet where Cara expressed her excitement at her volunteering position in Uganda, a hater commented that the model "can't cash in on her eyebrows forever," and advised her to seek a "real job."

Cara clapped back, telling the troll that her volunteer work had absolutely nothing to do with her looks. 

"You are just a another thirsty man who puts people down for attention on twitter and who thinks that looks are all that's important," retorted the model.

"I have no time no another man trying to tear down a woman for being successful."

*mic drop*

Cara also responded to him personally in a series of reply tweets, in which the hater asked Cara: "Do you not know who I am? I've had a very successful career I think I know what I'm talking about."

Errrrr, okay, if you say so. Cara explained that she didn't know who he was and that his unsolicited advice was less than appreciated. 

"Well I am very famous so maybe you should update yourself on celeb culture. Anyway, I tried to help. Whatever," said the troll, who has 11,000 followers compared to Cara's 7.47 million.

The hater, named Brad "the Lad" Long, who claims to be a "media personality and showbiz journalist "who is "most famous for telling it like it is," did not relent his criticisms. 

Cara then proceeded to ignore him while tweeting images of her volunteering experiences in Uganda.

You go girl.

We all love playing the odd prank or two, but get ready for this girl to be your new spirit animal.

Lizette Galvan made her boyfriend believe that she shaved ALL of her eyebrows off, and his reactions are hilarious.

The 17-year-old told Seventeen that she got the inspo from watching Star Wars-themed make-up tutorials and used a glue stick and setting powder to hide her brows.

She then decided to text her boyfriend, Anthony, and at first told him she was about to do it. 

She then sent him a picture of the 'shaving process' and at first, he didn't believe her.

She continued to send on another snap where both eyebrows have disappeared, to which Anthony replies, "Babe wft."

He then sends on a photo himself, and let's just say, it's the same reaction we ALL probably would have had.

Being the fab girlo that she is, Lizette shared the whole exchange on Twitter, and understandably, everyone fell in love with her:

The great eyebrow craze has been taking over the world for a few years now, and while you may think you don't have the skill to perfect them, you do. And, even though we should be pros at this stage, many are not (oops).

Here are some handy tips for getting the brows you've always wanted…

 

1. Choose the colour depending on your own hair colour

This is important. Try not to make your eyebrows too light or too dark because they will stand out a silly amount.

 

2. Put highlighter underneath the arch

This will show off the shape you've been working so hard on.

 

3. Don't stand too close to the mirror

You will see every tiny little detail and pluck them away to nothing, stand further back to look at them in order to gain a better perspective. 

 

4. Figure out which brow shape is best for your face shape

There are many different brow shapes, but they are not all suited to every person.

 

5. Never shave your eyebrows

Although it may seem like the easier and quicker option, you will highly regret it and wish you stuck to those tweezers. 

There you have it ladies!

Whether it's tattooing or tinting, we are all in search of the perfect brows.

Australian beauty vlogger, Stephanie Lange, has gone to great lengths for fuller eyebrows, and it is mesmerising! 

Admitting that she over-plucked her brows when she was younger (guilty), Stephanie claims she has tried almost everything to get back the growth.

Trying something really unusual, Stephanie decides to cut off some of her hair and stick the strands to her brows using a semi permanent glue.

Sceptical? We understand why, but the results are CRAZY good! 

She uses eyelash glue to stick on tiny pieces of her hair to her bare brows.

Close-ups reveal that you can still see some of the glue, but from a distance they look absolutely amazing! 

Stephanie is a professional make-up artist from Sydney and does AMAZING tutorials on her YouTube channel.

Bella Thorne got her eyebrows tattooed this weekend, and shared the entire process on her Snapchat.

The Disney star chose to thicken her eyebrows with this permanent makeup process, known as microblading, and took to social media to reveal her experience.

In the numerous snaps, Bella can be seen dyeing her eyebrows and having them filled in with tattoo ink.

The 18-year-old showed off her brand new brows in before and after shots, with close-up shots of her noticeably fuller eyebrows.

Bella got her brows done by Julia Affaria, who works for a salon called microblading LA, in Los Angeles. 

According to Allure, the process can cost anywhere between €350 and €800, excluding the required touch-ups that reduce fading.

In fairness… they look deadly!

Ever had time to kill in the hospital but could find nothing to do?  

Well Australian beauty blogger, Mollie Makeup, has found the perfect solution – get your brows tinted while you wait.

When her planned caesarean section was delayed on Friday, makeup guru, Mollie Harwood, decided to go for a wander around the hospital and just so happened to stumble across a beauty salon (as you do).

 

What to do when you're waiting to have a c-section….  #beautytreatments #eyebrows #39weeks #imready !!!

Since she had conveniently forgotten to have her brows tinted before she checked-in, Mollie decided to treat herself and live video stream the process for her Facebook followers.

In the video – which has since been shared thousands of times – the hair and makeup artist explains: "Of course nothing with babies ever goes to plan so I arrived here thinking that I was going in probably, I don’t know, 10.30/11 o’clock to have a caesar and no, that is not happening.”

“So I decided to go for a wander in the hospital and I found a beauty salon.”

“And one thing I forgot to do before I came into hospital was get my eyebrows tinted…so this amazing woman is tinting my eyebrows.”

The brunette from New South Wales eventually gave birth to baby Bronte on Sunday – with her brows perfectly in tact.

Now just to find this magical hospital-come-salon…

Kendall Jenner is used to being primped and preened to within an inch of her life, not just for public appearances or KUWTK filming, but also for her catwalk work with brands like Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Givenchy.

But the 20-year-old says there's one thing that she hates being asked to do, and that's mess with her eyebrows.

"I've been asked to alter my appearance in so many ways, it's not even funny," she wrote on her website last night. 

"I think the worst is when designers want to mess with my eyebrows, though.​ 

"It always freaks me out because every time they do it, I lose them. They literally fall OUT!"

Ouch. In the last year alone, Kendall's had to bleach her brows for three catwalk shows – twice for Marc Jacobs and once for Givenchy. So it's no surprise that she's seeing negative consequences.

"It's bad – I really hate getting a bleach," she admits.

Luckily for Kendall, she had a troupe of make-up artists on hand to restore her famous brows to their original colour and texture after each show – we're not sure ours would look quick so luscious as this if we were applying peroxide to them every few months:

Perks of the job, eh?

Though we may model our #browgoals on eyebrow queens such as Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins, most of us know that their deliciously thick brows would probably look ridiculous on us. 

That is because no matter how much you live for a thick, bushy brow in theory, it definitely does not mean that it would suit your face in practise.

In fact, according beauty experts, your natural, pre tweezed arches are probably going to be the best brow shape for your face. Which is ideal, because the natural looking brow is definitely coming into its own. 

However, after all the plucking, tinting, waxing and threading, many of us probably do not even know what our natural eyebrows look like anymore.

So put down those tweezers and step away from that mirror! We have everything you need to know about rediscovering your natural brow. 

1) Let em grow!

Sometimes the hardest part about trying to find your natural brow shape is actually letting the brows grow. 

According the eyebrow expert and beauty guru Kristie Streicher, the first two months of growing out those brows will be the toughest. 

"The most difficult stage is the beginning, [because] tweezing can be a habitual pleasure for most of us, so breaking the habit, in addition to seeing your brows look unruly for several weeks, is not easy."

Growing those bad boys out means no waxing, threading or plucking and it can take up to a year for the hair to grow out if the area has been heavily plucked or waxed. 

If there is a drastic shape change, Kristie says "Sometimes there may be a distinct line between your previous shape and where the hair is growing — trust me, this will fill in." So make sure to persevere ladies! 

2) Try a tint!

Tinting is an eyebrow game changer. 

Whether you have fair, blonde hair or deep and dark arches, tinting can really show you what you are working with. 

"It's a natural way to enhance what hair you have, as well as richen and define your brows," says Kristie.

"Even adding the same level of colour can help fill in any sparse areas and give the illusion of a fuller brow."

3) We'll let you tweeze, just a little! 

While you shouldn't tweeze any hairs close to the brow while they are growing out, you can tackle those strays that fall outside the brow line. 

According to Kristie you just need to figure out what should and should not be tweezed. 

"With each tweezing it's important to maintain a rather large 'buffer' between what you're tweezing and your growing eyebrow shape. It is also very helpful to fill in your ideal eyebrow shape with pencil or powder first." 

"Be sure to extend ends all the way across the brow bone when filling in—the ends are most important. This will give you a more clear idea of what should be tweezed and what should be left alone."

4) Say NO to waxing!

If you like the super precise finish of a wax, than we say 'you do you, boo.' 

But if you are looking to enhance your natural brow, Kristie tends to avoid the hot wax. 

"I only tweeze. The eyebrow deserves the detail-oriented and precise approach of tweezing. Waxing can create a very clean and distinct hair-to-no hair line of contrast, and in my humble opinion, this can look contrived and quite dated." 

"Tweezing allows the brows to be a bit more feathered looking, leaving a soft line." 

5) Fill em in 

No matter how long you wait for those pesky brows to fill in, some areas may be naturally more sparse than others. So, thank goodness for eyebrow pencils and powders! 

"Using short feather strokes, shade just above and just below the brow line (or where you have spare areas of hair)," says Kristie.

"Then use a brush to blend, in order to create a fuller and thicker looking brow."

6) Gel em!

If you worry that your brows never seem to stay in place, use a clear gel to set the hairs exactly where you want them.  

"Think of it as the mascara of the eyebrow," says Kristie.

We're massive fans of the strong-brow look around these parts: in fact, we say the fuller the better.

However, we had to raise, well raise an eyebrow to Lauren Goodger's makeup-free look when we spotted snaps of her leaving the gym earlier today.

Without her usual layers of slap – her brows were visible in all their natural (so to speak) state.

And wowsers are they seriously FIERCE.

However, it seems that online commentators we're not entirely supportive of the 29-year-old's striking style.

"Liam Gallagher called, he wants his eyebrows back," said one – with another suggesting: "Her eye-brows make her look as though she passed out at a stag party."

Of course, the former Towie star and businesswoman has lost a significant amount of weight throughout 2015, an achievement a third observer reckoned she could easily build on.

"She would lose another stone if she wiped them off!" they said lightheartedly.
