The Metallic Moments
Metallic sheens might be the new gold standard in brow beauty, with several designers sending glittering hues down the runway during fashion month. Gold, silver, and bronze finishes were the main accents in a variety of beauty looks, from structured, futuristic brows at the Art Hearts Fashion show, to a Grecian-inspired aesthetic at the spring 2017 Jasmine Chong show.
This luxe look is actually easy to achieve off the runway, too. Simply take a metallic pigment and brush a thin coat over your brows for a quick, more subtle night-out vibe.
The Winning Streaks
A line drawn in a brilliant color can define the shape of your brows while also providing a striking beauty accent. Playing with angles, lengths, and shapes—as seen at shows like Concept Korea and Salvatore Ferragamo—can lead to bold, graphic results.
To try this bold move on your own, choose a vibrant eyeliner and doodle above, below, or next to your brows. Experiment with lines, squiggles, and even little star shapes, if you want!
The Barely-There Bunch
Sometimes the boldest brow is (almost) no brow at all. During fashion month, Laurel DeWitt, N&S Gaia, and Paul & Joe jumped on the white- and bleached-out brow trend that's made appearances on runways in recent seasons.
Instead of frying off your brow hair with intense bleach, try painting it with a white or complementary skin-tone pigment to achieve the same effect.
The Not-So-Basic Colors
Big swatches of bright color can amplify whatever beauty vibe you're going for, whether that's an electrifying party look or something a little more ethereal. Chromat and Kenzo's spring 2017 shows give alternatives to covering the entire brow by focusing hues on either the thickest part of the brows, across the brow bone, or even onto the temple.
For this look, be brave. Apply a cream eyeshadow or blush in a vivid hue over any spot around your brows that you feel needs a splash of color.
The Texture-Heavy Masterpieces
Using paints and foil, Cimone and Irynvigre created sculptural eyebrows that add serious dimension to the face.
Coat paint on the eyebrow flicking the brush upward to create a winged effect or place 3-D gems on the brows' inner-corners for a small sparkle.
Take the arts and craft approach to decking out your brows and see how you like it!
