Stars like Madonna made big, bushy eyebrows the look to have. This trend faded in the 90s, with many following the ‘fine brow’ trend set by actors like Nicole Kidman. Today, microblading (a way of tattooing eyebrows on, ‘hair by hair’) is one of the most solicited treatments at beauty clinics but if you don’t want to commit permanently or you are on a budget, you can simply fill your browns yourself. Key tools you will need to recreate this look include an ultra-fine brow pencil and a quality brow gel (to keep everything in place). The key is to replicate the microblading look by drawing on individual brows for a natural, youthful look.
It’s a fantastic time for lovers of bright blue eyeshadow, heavy brows, dark lipstick, and kohl liner looks. These days, make-up artists and amateurs alike can choose from a host of different looks, ranging from natural to dramatic. If you’d like to experiment with one of these looks, remember that practice makes perfect - and that you will need to invest in one or two palettes, pencils, or bullet lipsticks.
