Take a brow, fashion designers
EYEBROWS frame the face and continue to be a focal point at fashion weeks and in the beauty pages of magazines.
This season’s optimum brow is bushy and full yet shapely.
It is a return to simplicity. We are leaving behind the memories of the ’90s “barely there brow” and the 2016 sharply overdrawn brow.
Designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo and Proenza Schouler showed off a naturally full brow during their AW17 runway shows. Almost boyish in shape, the models’ eyebrows appeared untouched. They had, however, been expertly groomed to look like perfectly natural archways.
Tips backstage were to moisturise your brows with a little face cream to keep the hair hydrated and then lightly tweeze away any strays.
Benefit Cosmetics lead make-up and brow artist Lisa Potter-Dixon suggested creating a brow quiff by applying product on the high point of the arch for definition and then combing upwards through the brow with a tinted gel so that the natural hairs are visible.
Having never touched my eyebrows, I met with Australian celebrity eyebrow stylist Amy Jean. Known as the Arch Angel to her clients such as Naomi Campbell, Jean is renowned for her sculpt and tint treatment and told me that “a de-fluff with wax will add radiance to the brow bone. A tint will also help them to look defined and thicker without the need for filling them in”.
Jean has six salons throughout Australia.
BROWS KEEP MOISTURE AWAY FROM OUR EYES, WHICH HELPS OUR VISION
Natural-looking eyebrows are all the rage this season.
