If you like to follow the trends, there’s a good chance your idea of a perfect eyebrow has changed a lot. There is always someone in the industry pushing the creative limits. (Ever heard of the fishtail brow or halo brow?)
The trends in recent years have been anything but boring as the eyebrow’s role as a frame to accentuate your fabulous features became a key part of many people’s desired look.
And, as we gear up for another fashion season, no doubt many new looks will be making their runway debut. Rick DiCecca, creative director of makeup design for the Artistry beauty brand, predicts a fluffy, natural look to dominate the trends.
Whether you like the bold, defined Instagram brow or messy boy brow, the contour brow or the wispy, more natural brow, having key tools and products will help you achieve them with perfection and confidence.
Thin is not in when it comes to eyebrows, but that doesn’t mean your brows might not have an errant hair that needs more than brushing to keep in place.
Have tweezers handy but use them sparingly. Go too far and you will regret it.
A good pencil with an extremely fine tip should be standard issue for any look you’re after. It will allow you to line and define your brows and fill them in to create your desired arch.
The Artistry™ Automatic EyeBrow Pencil, created with internationally renowned makeup artist Itsuki, has a firm tip that glides on its long-wearing color in a smooth line. Begin at the inside of brow with short, precise, feathery strokes and fill in sparse areas in the brows.
The built-in spoolie at the other end of the pencil allows you to smooth and blend as needed. The pencil is refillable and it comes in three colors to blend in with any hair shade.
Most brush kits contain an eyebrow brush. The Artistry™ Brush Set features a thin eye liner/brow brush with angled bristles allowing you to create a thin, even line.
It’s ideal for shaping and blending and the soft fibers are gentle on the eye area.
Brow gel or cream
If you’re going for the bolder brow look, a good eyebrow gel or cream will help you achieve your goals. It provides extra color to accentuate your brow while filling in the lighter areas and it holds your look in place.
The new Artistry Studio™ Parisian Style Edition features the Artistry Studio™ 3-in-1 Brow Shaper. Not only does it provide everything you need to customize your look, it comes in a fabulous container inspired by the Eiffel Tower.
It’s a convenient, all-in-one gel-cream formula with a built-in hard-angled brush. The brush can be used quickly as is, or flipped around and snapped back into the cap for a full size brush offering precise control to easily fill, sculpt and define your eyebrows.
For a natural look, stroke a tiny amount onto brows from inner end to arch, then from arch to outer end. Remember, a little of the high-pigment, buildable formula goes a long way. But if that bold look is what you want, go all in and use a second coat!
A little shimmer can be the finishing touch when aiming for the perfect brow to frame your face. Adding a bit of brightness directly above and below your arch will help define the shape of your brows and accentuate your eyes.
Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact offers three universal, blendable shades that complement all skin tones: luminescent white pearl, rosy glowing pink pearl and soft peachy-pink gold.
