Style and beauty guru Trinny Woodall has revealed her secrets to perfect eyebrows and the mistakes that can ruin your final makeup look.

Speaking with FEMAIL ahead of the launch of her new Trinny London Lash2Brow product, the English style icon said eyebrows should be drawn in right after foundation.

“Once you’ve got your base on, I’d do your eyebrows. It’s so much easier to look at your whole face once you’ve done them,” she said.

‘I like to do the most impactful things first and then build around them. So I put on BFF SPF 30 and then Trinny London Rebalance of Destress (tinted serums), then I raise my eyebrows and then I wait until the end and put on my mascara.

How does Trinny do her eyebrows?

1. Take the eyebrow brush and if you have very thin eyebrows, take your T-Kit or a small brush and take some of the product from the end and draw a line where you want to fill in. It will create a shape and it is much softer than using a pencil.

2. Take the eyebrow brush, which is small and perfect for any eyebrow size and brush against your eyebrow hair, place two fingers on the end of your eyebrow and pull it so that you have that nice tension when you stroke your eyebrow hair.

3. Brush it all the way in and then come back and brush it all the way back. That will manage to coat each hair evenly and give a really sharp brow – it gives you shade when you don’t have it and coverage where there isn’t.

The biggest mistake, she said, is to always follow your natural brow line, especially if you’re middle-aged.

“For middle-aged women, our eyes can sag a little over time and our eyebrows follow at the outer corner. People tend to just follow the line of their eyebrow and when that happens you start following the line down.

“That will only emphasize that your eyes are a little covered.”

To remedy this, Trinny plucks a few hairs from the tip of her eyebrow so that she has more of a straight line.

Before and after: “I wanted to develop a mascara that would add length and volume to enhance your everyday natural look, and an eyebrow that would transform your face in one simple stroke,” she said.

“It will really make a phenomenal difference. It will lift your eyebrow and give your face a much better texture.’

As for the wildly successful “brushed brow” trend, Trinny said that like everything else it depends on your personal style whether it works for you.

“From someone you can see trying out fashion and always trying new things, it looks good, it looks great,” she said.

“Life is about playing and finding things you love, but in the end you have to ask yourself how dominant you want your eyebrows to be and do a makeup look that will get you that finish.”

Four years in the making, Trinny’s new $50 Lash2Brow product combines mascara and a tinted brow gel.

Speaking to FEMAIL last month, Trinny said her high-quality makeup products were accompanied by a proper diet and “complicated” skincare routine to keep her glowing and timeless.

“I wanted to develop a mascara that would add length and volume to enhance your everyday natural look, and an eyebrow that would transform your face in one swipe,” she said.

Speaking to FEMAIL last month, Trinny said her high-quality makeup products were accompanied by a proper diet and “complicated” skincare routine to keep her glowing and timeless.

‘I cleanse my skin twice in the evening: once with a balm and then with an AHA BHA PHA gel. Then I do a little acid, retinol and finish with a peptide. In the morning I put on a cleansing balm, vitamin C, and when it’s summer I go straight to my BFF Skin Perfector,” she said.

“I cleanse my skin twice in the evening — once with a balm and then with an AHA BHA PHA gel,” she said.

In between, Trinny does small facial massages to oxygenate her skin and focuses on lymphatic drainage. She does this with her hands and tools, including gua shas and the AUD$483 NuFace device that reduces wrinkles and tightens sagging skin with micro-currents.

‘I’ve been using Botox since I was 35. I started it because I had a really, really bad forehead when I started in front of the TV and I have a deep forehead. Botox was still embryonic at the time, but I thought ‘why not?’ I am now 58 and because of that I have never had lines on my forehead,” she added.

As for the diet, Trinny gives a stern warning about sugar when it comes to aging and inflammation.

“If most people have rosacea or pimples or something like that, sugar is a big source of inflammation,” she said.

What are Trinny’s top anti-aging secrets at age 58?

* Reduce sugar as much as you can without depriving yourself of joy – swap ice cream for apple with peanut butter or a stick of good quality dark chocolate

*Have a good skincare routine and stick to it

* Only invest in quality skincare gadgets if you stick to them. Buy them and check them out if you want to see results. Don’t make it a chore and use them on the toilet for five minutes if you’re short on time

* Take marine collagen every day and apply it on your face

* Use makeup with nourishing ingredients that heal your skin while wearing it

* Focus on lymphatic drainage methods on your face, it is excellent for reducing puffiness

*Listen to your body and your skin, it will physically show you if you have inflammation in your body

“I want to run 80 up the hill and I want to help women appreciate the whole holistic approach while lowering our sugar levels because the inflammatory markers are at the root of many serious diseases.”

Trinny, who alternates between dark chocolate and apple with peanut butter for after-dinner snacks, said listening to your body is key, as inflammation will show up on a physical level pretty quickly.

“As women go through menopause, inflammation is much more noticeable. So when I eat a chocolate full of s**t, my ankles swell because I feel the inflammation. My body tells me not to take the second measure and I listen.

“It’s not about depriving people of the pleasures of life, it’s about balance.”
