Next Spring & Summer will bring you brow looks that are showing that what got started last year, is now firmly a brow staple.
Here are my top brow looks as seen at NYFW Spring/Summer ’18.
THE UNMADEUP BROW
So after years of growing, tweaking and getting those brows back from the Hollywood thin brow era of the 90’s, it’s now confirmed. The unmade up brow is in. Natural, and literally no makeup what so ever. Not even a pencil line.
HOW TO GET: Get those brows growing long and as fast as you can. Brow growth products are the must have brow accessory next year.
THE MESSY BROW ALEXANDER WANG
Yep. The messy brow is still in. Grown in, along the bottom of the brows all along the brow line.
HOW TO GET: Start growing them now. And stay away from over plucking for a while.
TIP: Can’t get them to grow in? Try extending with a super fine pencil stroke to mimic longer hairs. The finer the line the better, and the more realistic it looks.
THE LONGER BROW
Also a big trend coming in is the longer hairs in the fronts of the brows. Uncut, untrimmed. Just grown in.
HOW TO GET: Avoid trimming your brows in the front for a few months.
TIP: You can fill in with a super precision brow pencil to lightly mimic longer hairs in the fronts. The softer and sharper the line the better. Try a colored brow wax applied with a sharp angle brush for the cleanest of lines.
THE DRAWN BROW
The most eyebrow makeup I saw was the brow top line. Eyebrows weren’t filled at all, just a soft line along the top of the brow. We saw this last year as a trend using a sharp eyebrow pencil, but next year it will be a softer look. Here you can see a soft brow powder is drawn along the top of the brow from beginning to end with a soft shading.
HOW TO DO: To try this look, draw a line of brow shadow along the entire top of the brow from front to end, and then lightly blend your brow shadow with a soft spoolie brush going along the top of the brow to keep the shadow in line.
TIP: Try with a darker brow shadow than your brow, or even a pencil in their exact shade for a little more dramatic look. Pretty for night.
THE MESSY STRAIGHT BROW
This summer’s straight brow has now turned into the straight messy brow. This brow is a slightly messy brow grown in along the tops of the front of the brow, but still cleaned up a touch going along the bottom of the brow. The finishing touch? Brows are brushed up just in the fronts.
HOW TO GET:Avoid trimming the brows for a few months to get them long and then brush up with a strong brow wax to keep in place.
TIP: Brow gels may not be strong enough to get it to stay. Try mixing both a clear brow wax and a clear brow gel together for a stronger finish. Apply the brow wax on first, and then a clear brow gel brushed through and up.
