How important are your eyebrows? The answer is obvious looking at this picture of Katy Perry!
So what do our brows do for us? They draw attention to our eyes, making them appear larger, while framing them perfectly. They can balance the features and give expression to the face.
After discovering this shocking picture of Katy Perry it got me thinking about my brows I have been neglecting for some time. So with the new year upon us I thought it was time to revamp my sparsest redundant brows.
Brows are in for 2014, down the runways at New York Fashion Week designers Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors to name a few rocked the natural brows, bushy, wild and slightly groomed. A come back of Brooke Shields boyish unkempt look of the 1980’s but with an edge, a perfect example is Cara Delevingne.
Or natural with a more dramatic arch like Rita Ora or Megan Fox, More to my liking it’s feminine and seductive.
Now let’s focus on shaping your brows with make-up tips to evoke the Megan Fox brows in you! You will need the following tools:
- Spooly brush or disposal mascara wand (Mac Brush 204)
- Sharpened brow pencil in your shade (Mac Retractable Brow Pencil)
- Clear setting Gel (Mac Brow Set)
Now let’s do this together! I found a fab picture on Instagram of a 4 step simple demo to achieve those trendy naturally arched brows.
Step 1. Brush your eyebrows into shape with the spooly brush.
Step 2. Draw the desired shape with sharpened brow pencil at the bottom of the brow.
Step 3. Draw in the shape at the top of the brow.
Step 4. Fill the brow with the brow pencil and use the spooly brush in upward strokes’ to give a more natural slightly bushy look and to blend.
See you out there ladies with those fearless brows! I’ll know who you are.
