Last month, Google reported that no one’s searching for things like ‘tweezing’ and ‘eyebrow plucking’ anymore. Instead, they’re looking up Cara Delevingne and terms like ‘statement brow’ and ‘fuller eyebrows’. At just 21-years-old, the model du jour’s already legendary for her Brooke Shields-like brows and a generation of teens who spent the ‘90s over-tweezing is now embracing a full arch. A full arch, however, doesn’t mean an un-groomed one. We asked makeup artist Sage Maitri (she works with women like Alexa Chung and Camilla Belle) for a simplified lesson in filling in your brows.
If you’ve just recently grown out your brows, or never had them shaped, head to a professional before attempting anything yourself. “Find pictures in magazines of brows you like, much like you would bring to your hair stylist,” Maitri says. A professional can find the right shape for your face and define your arch—once that’s done, it’ll be easy for you to maintain. Click through to find out how.
