Do you think that the Latin proverb “Fortune favors the bold” was originally said about bold eyebrows? After learning to fill mine in, I kind of think it was. A happy, healthy, full eyebrow will transform your entire life. Oh, you don’t think you have the right eyebrow shape? Allow me to disprove your theory.
There are really two schools of eyebrows: straight or arched. Either way, they can be made into beautiful bold brows. Look–
I used to think that I could never pull off a bold brow look because I have an almost negative amount of arch. It wasn’t until I started doing some research and I realized that the queen of the bold eyebrow, Cara Delevingne, kind of doesn’t have an arch either. Hellller– that means I can have bold brows all I want! No major arch? NO more excuses. Fill them in and own those brows.
So maybe you’re in the lucky and blessed of us and you popped out with a perfectly arched brow, unlike myself but much like Beyoncé, Jordan Dunn or on a particularly good day, Cara. And if that’s the case, above are examples of a perfectly bold brow that doesn’t shy away from its arch. Enhance it, work with it– your brows deserve to be the shining beacons of light on your face.
So how do you get a beautiful bold brow? Start by going to a professional to get them properly shaped (unless you’re a brow wizard and can unearth the perfect shape on your own), pick up the appropriate products (recommendations here) and once you’re fully stocked and ready you can fill them in to achieve your wildest brow dreams. As a tip, the brow savant Anastasia (from Anastasia Beverly Hills) suggests that you start in the middle of your brow and working your way outwards in order to achieve a natural, filled in brow (video here).
What do you think? Are you into a bold brow? I vote yes times 1000. Filling in your brows will completely change the shape and look of your face. You’ll feel more pulled together, look more editorial and honestly, it’s just completely necessary.
