She’s all business in the vid, but don’t be fooled–when I met this girl, I was laughing out loud within minutes and begging her to do more impressions (yes, that’s right – pretty AND she does impressions). So go ahead and BROWSe her beauty bloggin’…
So we’ve all picked up on it. They’ve been staring at us directly in the face for months now. From Lucy Hale to Camilla Belle to Lily Collins…young Hollywood has reawakened the Brooke Shields beast.
Far gone are the days of pencil thin brows and over-tweezed arches. Big, bold, statement brows have taken the beauty stage once again, and we sensitive gals in the self-inflicted, painful grooming gang couldn’t be happier with this widespread trend.
One of the biggest trailblazers of this look is model of the year Cara Delevingne (can you say girl crush?). Now, we know so much coolness, hotness, rockerness, and model…ness(?) can be shoved into only a few lucky human beings (we aren’t kidding ourselves over here). But trust us; every gal can get that bold brow sans looking like Groucho Marx… yesh.
Who’s aroused right now?
So to get your brow ball rolling (does that sound pervy…?), here are some of the top tools according to our PRIMP experts.
Maybelline Define-A-Brow Pencil ($7) – “Maybelline Define-A-Brow in medium brown is a steal of a deal. Its ultra-skinny tip allows you to create hair-like strokes that look natural. I think this rivals MAC’s brow pencil and it’s a fraction of the cost. Bring on the Brooke Shields-inspired brows!” – Sasha of CrowsFeetCupcakesandCellulite.
Smashbox Brow Tech ($25) – “Fill in sparse brows with this awesome brow powder by Smashbox. The palette comes with dark and light shades, as well as a brow wax. Use an angled brow brush and follow the natural shape of your brows then finish up with the wax to keep your brows in place all day.” – PRIMP Team member, Megan.
Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit ($4) - “This handy gem is cheap and gets the job done (kinda’ like late-night Taco Bell).” – Witty + Pretty
And for a finishing waterproof topcoat:
Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Top Coat ($21) – Power Primper and Makeup Maven favorite, 5-star reviews across the board on the PRIMP app.
For a tutorial on how to achieve this famed bold brow, click HERE to watch Power Primper Shannon O’Brien of Cheap Frills and Thrills. Then grow out those bad boys, give em a quick, clean tweeze, blast some Black Keys, throw on a bold lipstick, and go on with your big-browed self.
