Long gone are the days of over tweezed and drawn on eyebrows. The full brow is back and better than ever as seen on the Spring 2012 runways. Everyone from Naeem Khan to Derek Lam channeled their Brooke Shields a la The Blue Lagoon. In seasons past, the bleached brow had made an appearance, but this spring, it’s all about the statement making power brow.
I suffer from having fairly light and fairly thin eyebrows naturally, so I have to fill them in just to make ’em look normal using Tarte’s EmphasEYES brow pencil in Taupe on a day to day basis. Rosie Huntington Whitely swears by Laura Mercier’s Brow Powder. It’s time to find your power tool for banging brows. The look is full, groomed, and face framing. It is also important to find the right shape for your face as well. I have found that just having a groomed brow makes me immediately appear more polished and adds an extra impact to my eyes.
