The bold looks just keep on coming! Fashion icon Liz Taylor brought us the defined, bold, and striking brow once and now it’s back again! Filling in your eyebrows, brushing them, and giving them a highly defined arch is the key to this style trend of spring 2012. I think it’s time that I stopped ignoring my brows and put them to use in my daily makeup routine. Defining and filling in your brows serves to enhance your eyes! Making them appear bigger and more pronounced, which is what we all want right? So, why not give it a try? Put down those tweezers, pick up a eyebrow brush, and let’s get started!
1. Define your brows! First, like I said before…put down those tweezers! If you do too much tweezing, you may shape your brows into something they aren’t, instead of highlighting what makes them unique. When your brows are how you want them (lightly tweezed) the easiest way to fill them in is with a combo of powder and pencil. Stick to neutral tones that compliment your hair color. Blonds should go for taupes, dark blonds and light brunettes work well with ashy browns, dark brunettes are best off with dark browns, red heads should be grabbing chestnut colors, and those girls out there with jet black hair need blackened browns to fill in their brows.
2. Brush it out! Once you have defined your beautiful brows the next step is to brush them up a bit. Brush in an upward motion with a squirrel brush or you can even use a clean mascara brush! Spritz some hair spray on the brow brush of your choice to make sure they hold position. For a more natural look you could skip heavily defining your brows and just brush them out, adding a little powder on top to enhance the look in a subtle manner.
3. Complete the look! More makeup? Or barely there? It’s up to you! You can add more definition to the eye area by pairing heavy black cat eye style liner to your eyes and pairing it off with a peachy lip color. Or, you can stick to the bare basics by just doing the normal foundation routine and picking a nude colored lipstick to bring all the attention to your boasting brows. It’s all up to personal preference! You can even create your own unique look by taking style tips you like using and combining them with your new brows.
Don’t be afraid of your brows running wild! Sometimes letting them grow can lead to a whole new style trend, and maybe a whole new you.
