If you aren’t convinced of the importance of maintaining your brows, consider this: they say the eyes are the windows to the soul. Don’t you want a chic set of drapes over your most important facial feature?
At a loss on how to style your brows (yes, you can style them!), or even choose the right shape to complement your look? We’ve got you covered with gorgeous photos and helpful tips that will bring you up to the minute on the best brow trends of 2012.
Strong brows are bold, feminine, and eternally stylish.
Still recovering from over-plucking? Dab aloe vera on your arches
to stimulate new hair growth. Doutzen Kroes, Hilary Rhoda, Keira Knightley,
and Camilla Belle all have stunning thick brows.
Brush up brows with a mascara wand spritzed with hair spray
for a youthful and romantic or artfully grungy look. Wearers of the wild hair include
Lily Collins, Natalia Vodianova, and Arizona Muse.
Contrasting brows are mega-popular in magazine editorials. Steer clear of Groucho
Marx territory by sticking to your natural shape, and choosing a color carefully.
For guidance, see Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, Beyonce, or Agyness Deyn.
For a perfectly groomed arch, use brow wax to shape and shine, and never over-pluck.
Brow glamazons include Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Jessica Lowndes, and Hayden Panettiere.
Edgy and bold, light brows will allow your facial features to take center stage.
This is not a DIY project – always leave bleaching to a salon professional.
Chanel Iman, Lara Stone, Claudia Schiffer, and Rooney Mara have all worn the look well.
Treat your brows like an accessory with bright color, unique pencilling,
or a sparkling applique. See recent runway shows by Chanel,
Balenciaga, and Alexander Wang for ideas.
