Beauty Trend Spotting: The Teenage Brow

As the saying goes, ‘If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’, and the latest beauty trend in Hollywood takes its inspiration from the bushy adolescent eyebrow.

At the Gucci and Vanity Fair dinner party at the Hotel du Cap, Naomi Watts, Caroline Casiraghi, Li BingBing, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Connelly all sported fuller Eighties-style brows.

Eyebrow guru Kristie Streicher, whose clients includes Julia Roberts, Rachel Weisz and Molly Sims, says: “Fuller eyebrows are more youthful and really frame the face.”

Here are her tips for getting back the brows of your youth:

* Cheat. Grow overplucked brows back faster by applying an enhancing gel every night. RevitaBrow by Revitalash and Talika Eyebrow Lipocils will kick-start regrowth.

* Follow your own natural brow line. Everyone’s bone structure and brows are different. If you’re not sure where your eyebrows should be, run your finger along your eyebrow bone. That’s exactly where the line of your eyebrow should be.

* Draw an invisible line from the corner of your nose straight up towards your forehead to indicate where the eyebrows should start.

* Your brow’s arch should fall just outside the pupil and go all the way across the brow bone, feathering the ends outward to give the eye a lift.

* Use a good pencil, powder, or tinted brow gel to fill in sparse areas. By filling in the growing or thin areas, the eyebrow will appear more defined and complete while also making the sparse hairs underneath less noticeable. Be sure to use a pencil, powder, or gel that’s a shade or two lighter than your hair colour since it will look darker once applied. Powder works better on oily skin while pencil is usually better for more mature or drier skin.

    I had brows like that until I was 15 and I hated them. I’m not keen to have them again so I will not try this trend.

    Brooke Shields Brows are timeless.

    Charlotte Casiraghi as usual, didn’t get it right. Her brows look atrocious.

    If you want thick brows, do it like Naomi Watts, Li Bing Bing, Jennifer Connley, Brooke Shields and Lily Collins. They get it.

    I love Madonna’s 1980s brows.

    I used to have beautiful thick eyebrows, until I got some kind of dermatitis and now I’m losing them slowly :/

    People really underestimate what a good full eyebrow can make to the face, it’s like an automatic makeover.

    I have naturally arched eyebrows so they’re the one thing that I don’t gripe over about my face :D
    I like this trend, because it focuses on a woman’s natural beauty instead of trying to change it.

      That is exactly right! natural beauty is what its all about. We all look best with what were given naturally. If your brows are full, just clean them a bit and open up eye area but don’t over do it- its hight maintenance and can look harsh and contrived. Effortlessness= Beauty.

    I thought Jennifer Connelly always had these eyebrows.
