Take a brow, fash­ion de­sign­ers

Life & Style Weekend - - CLOSET - WITH Sarah Barnes

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.



Nat­u­ral-look­ing eye­brows are all the rage this sea­son.
