Skinny is out, thin is definitely not ” in.” One glance at runway beauty trends is an indicator that it’s time to get the eyebrow pencil out for some brow transformation.
Say goodbye to your thin brows, to overly done arches and try these suggestions to perfect your bold brow.
First off, you may have to go cold turkey on brow tweezing. Visit a professional brow artist who can properly shape your eyebrows during the transitional period. It’s torturous, but worth it.
(If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, check out The Brow Lounge, picked by InStyle as best brows in the Bay).
To fill in your brows and get that big bold look try the following:
- Apply brow color to “shape” your brow while following the natural curvature of your eyebrow on the top and bottom. Add additional length or height to your eyebrow if you feel it best fits your face shape. Apply lightly and add more color if needed.
- Fill in your brows by shading in the shape of your brow. Remember a light hand is best. Use a spoolie brush to comb color through your brows to avoid a harsh drawn-on look.
- Use your concealer to outline the shape of your NOW BOLDER eyebrow.
- Blend the outer areas of your concealer into your complexion.
- Voila! Runway worthy Big Bold Brows!
Optional for unwieldy brows:
* Apply a brow gel closest to your hair color or clear to help set your eyebrow hair. This step is important to help keep your hairs in place. It also helps your brow color wear longer.
