Carolyn.K London: Raise your BROWS
Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Eyebrows, eyebrows, eyebrows… They’re big, they’re bold and they are so in style right now. With beauties such as Cara Delevingne fronting the trend, if you don’t have big brows you need to get some and fast.

My mother always told me to never over pluck my brows, which of course I did. Luckily for me they grew back but I could definitely use a little bit of help making them that bit fuller. After all, perfectly groomed brows frame the face and highlight the eyes…


That’s where Carolyn.K London steps in. Carolyn.K London has created her Raise your BROWS beauty book so that you can achieve an array of flattering brow looks with one kit, and create brows that will change your entire look. The Beauty Book contains 3 shades and a highlighting powder to suit any skin tone and hair colour, as well as a professional Brow Brush for precise application.

These pigmented, ultra-soft powders will help you to fill and define your brows along with a little help from Carolyn’s instructions and expert tips.


I managed to get hold of the Raise your BROWS beauty book to give it a go. I have to say, it took a bit of practice. I always thought I had black eyebrows, alas it became evident that I was very wrong. I happily started filling in my brows with the darkest colour and I looked… interesting. My lovely boyfriend had a good old laugh.

I soon discovered the light brown colour was actually best for me and once I’d practiced a few times I managed to achieve Cara Delevingne esq brows. I think this is a fantastic product to give your eyebrows an extra bit definition, perfect for framing the face. My favourite part of the set though was the highlighting powder, it really brightened up the whole eye area.

I think there is a real risk with this product of getting that unfortunate ‘drawn on brows’ look. The trick is less is more. Don’t use it to create brows, especially if you do have very light eyebrows, but use it instead to create a fuller brow effect. Once you get the hang of it, I think this could turn into one of those products you just can’t live without.

Carolyn.K London has also joined forces with ‘Magic Breakfast’, a charity which supplies free and healthy breakfasts to over 200 primary schools in the UK to children whose families are unable to feed them every morning. With every Carolyn.K London item sold, they will donate a breakfast for a child on an ongoing basis – how fabulous is that? Looking good never felt so rewarding!

Raise your BROWS is £14.99 and available from
