Bold brows are back and bigger than ever. Model’s Cara Delevingne’s, Jordan Dunn and the new face of Lancôme, Lily Collins, are just a few examples of the women who are rocking it well. Bold brows can seem unpractical and intimidating but they are key to the framing of your face and conveyance of emotions. This look can be achieved in a few simple steps, in the comfort of your own home.
Step #1: Let them do what they do best – grow.
Leave the tweezers alone and give your eyebrows a chance to grow. Only use them to control the stray strands.
Step #2: Shape It Up
Find the shape that goes with the framing of your face. Just because a certain person wears them a particular way, doesn’t mean it’s going to be the same for your brows. Start off by holding the pencil or powder where the brow starts, and begin shading in until the brow ends. Try to achieve that perfect arch. Brow pencils such as Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (21.00) are great to use on the go. However, if you have problems figuring out exactly how to shape your brows, Too Faced Brow Envy Brow Shaping & Defining Kit (35.00) is a helpful product to use. If you don’t want to go out and buy a particular product, any shadow that you have that coordinates to the color of your brows will work. However, choose a color no more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color.
Step #3: Up and Out
In order to make them appear thicker, start by brushing your brows upward and make sure to go through the brow. Then using a brow highlighter like colt favorite, Benefit Cosmetics High Brow (20.00), highlight beneath the lining of your brow and blend with your finger to make it appear more natural. Finish off with a eyebrow setting gel to make sure that they stay in place. You can go out and buy a brow gel, but the cheaper and easier alternative would be to just use clear mascara!
So stop over-tweezing, take the risk and go au naturel.
