Zoe Do: Bold Brows
Beauty addicts take note: thanks to several high-profile appearances on the fall runway, statement brows are back and having a major moment! From flatteringly full to bleached-out bold, this scene-stealing beauty trend has us dreaming of epic brows for autumn. On the catwalk, dramatically dark eyebrows at Oscar de la Renta paired gorgeously with bitten lips and rosy cheeks, while Alexander Wang went for downtown minimalist with bare faces and unfussy brows. At Jen Kao hard-to-miss arches got the golden treatment with a dose of glittered pigment and at Jason Wu, brows went missing beneath dramatic eyes and a bit of bleach. Next level!
If runway-induced brow envy has you on the hunt for a look that is both wearable and of-the-moment, take a cue from the models at Oscar de la Renta and contrast a dark brow with a fresh complexion and a hint of color. Follow your natural brow line and fill in with your tool of choice (i.e. a brow pencil, brown tint, brow coloring powder) then give your arches a proper polish with a coat of brow gel and a quick tweeze of any errant strays—just be careful to never over-pluck. For a fetching finishing touch, contrast your emphasized eyebrows with a bright lip, exaggerated lashes or vivid cheeks. As autumn calls for a shift in your beauty routine, embrace the power of a fuller brow and reinvent your look with one of this season’s best beauty trends. Bottom line, bold brows are ba-na-nas!
