Thin eyebrows are out and big, bushy, bold brows are in: Find out how to get the look that’s now
BIG, bushy and bold are the three buzz words when it comes to brows.
Gone is the trend of the ‘90s when women thinned their brows into high arches, wild-brow models including Cara Delevingne and Bambi Northwood-Blyth are championing big, untamed arches.
“The ‘90s were not kind to us, we went to town on our brows and thinned them out and over arched them,” Celebrity brow artist, Jazz Pampling said.
“We are now realising how important brow shape is to the face.
“Most of my clients feel they need less make up when their brow is shaped correctly.”
Brows are big business and Benefit Cosmetics is just one of the beauty brands jumping on the brow bandwagon, developing a range of products to meet the needs of eyebrow obsessed women.
Benefit’s International spokesman for Global Services Jared Bailey has made it his mission to achieve “arch” excellence and has given Confidential a run-down on how to achieve the ultimate brows.
According to Bailey, brows have the ability to lift the structure of the face, open the eyes and frame the features.
“We all know that brows are the frame to your face,” Bailey said.
And to cure “saggy brow syndrome,” Bailey recommends one of the brands newest products, High Brow.
“If you want your eye to look more open, take High Brow which is a pink highlighting pencil and drag it just along the brow bone, then use everybody’s favourite brush, your fingers and pad it out,” he said.
“It is an instant eye opener.”
