How to Achieve the Full, Brushed-Up Brows Seen on Every Runway
The makeup looks that took to the runways this fashion week season fixed themselves on a spectrum of extremes. On one end, fashion show beauty exploded in brazen, eye-popping manifestations that implemented colour-blocking and bold approaches with results more similar to craft paint than makeup. On the opposite end, the reigning look was subdued and natural, very much in tune with the no-makeup makeup movement of the moment. Whichever side of the spectrum the beauty look fell, one element was consistent: full, brushed-up brows.
Face-framing brows, maximized in volume, may have been the best accessory on the fashion week runways. We've gathered our favourites here, as well as a few tips and tricks from the makeup artists responsible for these full, bold brows.
Scroll on to see the best brushed-up brows from fashion week and read tips from makeup artists for achieving the look.
At Stella Jean, the brows were made to look wild and natural with a deliberately messy finish and extra hairs drawn throughout using MAC's Wet Eye Shadow and the 210 Precise Eye Liner. The look-at-me brows gave a fashionably-unfinished edge to an otherwise polished pink look complete with glossy lids and pout.
At Dior, the brows made a statement, defined using Diorshow Brow Styler ($44) "for a naturally graceful look," says makeup artist Peter Philips.
Olivier Theyskens made a bold brow the star of the show with slick-backed hair and bare-faced beauty.
