Brow Confidence is all about building a community of women that want a better future for their brows – and go to Lien Davies for it!
This month, say hi to Emma.

Tell us about your first brow experience?
“My Mum and Mor Mor (Grandma) are my biggest beauty influences and encouraged me to start getting into beauty around age 15. Both of these women have thin, arched eyebrows drawn dark, which was the trend. Therefore, I used to pluck my eyebrows into this same paper-thin arched shape! My eyebrows stayed that way until I was about 20 when I decided to grow them out again; trends had changed and I was influenced by models like Bambi and Cara Delevingne.”
What is your current brow routine?
“My current routine is to make my eyebrows appear as fluffy as possible! I brush up with an un-used mascara head and use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in ‘Ash Brown’ and a fine angled brush to fill in patches with light strokes. I finish with Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in ‘Medium Brown’ to set into place.”
What does “Brow Confidence” mean to you?
“Having grown my eyebrows back into their natural shape, I feel that now I really look like ‘me‘ again. I don’t need to draw my eyebrows anymore how I used to, and that’s because I’m embracing my natural shape and have the knowledge that different face shapes suit different brows. I’ve found what is perfect for me and that gives me confidence.”
Describe your brows in three words –
Happy, natural, imperfectly-perfect (does that count as 3?)!
How did you find out about Lien?
“I found Lien online by looking up ‘best eyebrow beauticians’ as I was after someone who would take care of my eyebrows, not just wax-and-go. I was looking for an ‘eyebrow whisperer’ who I found in Lien. I knew she was the right person for me as she was honest about where my shape should be and the time it could take to get to my dream brows. No one can have a beauty fix overnight if it’s something you want to last!”
