Beauty Trend Spotting: Bold Brows

Beauty Trend Spotting Bold Brows

If the eyes are the windows to the soul then your brows are the window treatments. The way you style your eyebrows is just as important as the way you wear your hair. Celebs such as Keira Knightley , Rita Ora, Janelle Monae, and Lily Collins are boycotting the overly plucked look and are rocking standout brows. You can make a statement with your eyebrows as well by following a few simple steps.

Although this trend is all about embracing a thicker shape, brows should be bold not messy, so you’ll need to tweeze any stray strands. Before you pick up the tweezers start by moisturizing your brows. This softens the hair, which will eliminate some of the sting. Your usual facial moisturizer will get the job done, such as Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Now it’s time to fill in any sparse areas. Pencils can create a waxy residue that leaves eyebrows looking like an art project. Instead, opt for a powder that matches your brow natural color and an angular brush to create hair-like strokes. Focus the pigment on the ends of your brows and fade the color as you work way inward. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes has multiple shades and the right tools to get the job done.

Next, tidy things up using a concealer. Go one shade lighter underneath your brows and the same shade as your complexion on the top. Complete your look with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, which gives you two shades of concealer.

Finally, lock hairs in place using a clear brow gel. Try Ulta Eye Brow Gel to lock your bold brows in place.

Do you think bold brows are here to stay, or a fad that will be gone tomorrow?

    I love Emilia Clarke’s eyebrows.

    Lily Collins’ brows are in need of some grooming – I personally think they are too thick for her features, but if she would just get rid of the uni-brow, they would look so much better!

      I agree about Lily’s brows… She needs some grooming in the middle, then they’d be perfect. At the moment they look unkept and are not particularly flattering to her beautiful face.
