Trends come and go, but the big, bold eyebrow trend that we have been seeing on the runway the last few seasons don't seem to be going anywhere. A beautifully shaped eyebrow can change your entire face, and really make your eyes pop, but the process can be intimidating to most people. Generally I recommend you work with your natural eyebrow shape rather than trying to contort it into a completely different shape, and stick to makeup colors that are close to your natural color. Nothing's worse than seeing someone who drew themselves 2 thick, black eyebrows onto their face. There are also a bunch of great eyebrow products out there right now to help you give yourself a natural looking brow, that's emphasizing your face rather than overpowering it.
Perfekt Brow Perfection Gel ($22)
Votre Vu Arch De Triumphe ($24)
This water-resistant wax formula has Vitamin E to nourish the eyebrow hairs while mineral pigments mimic the natural shade of the hairs. The formula is easy to apply with an angled brush, which I think everyone needs for brows or for great eyeliner applications.
Jouer Brow Definer ($20)
Hourglass Cosmetics Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil ($32)
Can't decide whether to use a pencil, a gel, or a wax formula? This brow pencil comes out this month and is sort of a pencil/wax hybrid. The angled tip means you don't need to buy an angled brush and it has an automatic sharpener, so no need to buy one of those either.
mark. Brow Factor Hook Up clear brow gel ($6.50)
$1 hook up adapter and make it a double-ended tool. You can get an eyeliner for the other end, or a mascara, or even a lipgloss for another $6 (making the total tool about $13).
Benefit's Raising Eyebrows ($16.95) is a great book to have at home to learn to not only emphasize your brows with makeup, but to maintain the shape at home. It goes into detail about the pros and cons of waxing/threading/tweezing, and is a great visual tool for discovering what brow shape would compliment your face shape.
