London S/S ’13: How to … Get Cara’s Sass & Bide Brows
Sun, 16 September 2012 8:46AM
If you don’t already have intensely dark brows, like Cara so magnificently does, you should start your brow grooming routine with a trick that is used by many of the pros backstage: blend concealer or foundation through your arches. Why? As with the face, it will help colour adhere better and show up more strongly. Clever, yes?
As for that colour, if you have sparse brows, you’ll need to first use a pencil to fill in the gaps between hairs – that’s because a pencil is what sticks to skin the best. Work in light strokes and try to avoid colouring the actual hairs, so as not to overload them.
Now it’s time to define. Here’s where a brow powder comes into the picture. Our preferred way is to apply a brow powder (or even a matte brown eye shadow) with a small angle brush, such as M.A.C’s 208 Angled Brow Brush, $39, M.A.C. Again, work in light strokes, but this time aim only for hairs, not the skin.
The finishing touch? Groom arches upwards with a brow brush and set with a clear gel.
And there you have it, brows even Cara would be envious of.
