Statement Brows

@ Alexander Wang
@ Christopher Kane
@ Jean Paul Gaultier

The saying ‘the bigger, the better’ only goes as far as eyebrows are concerned this season. Although, we’re not referring about the bushy un-kept kind, instead we’re talking about the strong structured sets seen at Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Changing the shape of your eyebrows will change the shape of your face. Strong, more defined brows will highlight your natural bone structure and make your cheekbones more prominent. If you’re still not won over and want to trial a pair of strong brows before heading out all you need is a brow pencil and plenty of patience. Start with a light brow pencil and work your way from the inner end to the outer edge. Try to copy the natural direction of your brow growth with small replica flicks following the edge of your eyebrows for a more convincing finish. It's worth using a slightly darker brow pencil over the top to give your new, bolder brows depth. For darker hair and skin tones start with a darker brow pencil, although opt for dark chocolate brown, rather than black as it looks for a more natural look.

Changing the shade as well as the shape will add automatic drama to your look. At both Alexander Wang and Jean Paul Gaultier brows were considerably darker than hair colour, making them much more striking. Use a darker powder to go over your brows to achieve this. Don’t be disheartened if they don’t match - eyebrows should be sisters not twins.
