You may want to say goodbye to your waxer for a bit — big, bold brows have never been cooler.
Damone Roberts’ talent from painting faces to sculpting the perfect arch has graced some of the world’s most beautiful and famous people including Madonna, Beyonce, Megan Fox, Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Williams, Mandy Moore, Alicia Keys, Robert Downey Jr. and Channing Tatum, and Damone says there is nothing better than a great bold brow!
Don’t go overboard
“The thing is you do not want to go overboard!” Damone says. “One rule of thumb that I follow is always follow the natural shape of the brow. If your brows are thinner by nature, you can outline them to give the appearance of a fuller brow before slightly filling them in. My tools of preference are the Damone Roberts’ dual brush and the Damone Roberts’ Brow Shadow that best suits the individual. Apply in light feathering strokes before brushing through for perfect, full brows!”
Sumita Batra, the CEO of brow empire Ziba Beauty, advises that before even touching your brows with any products, it’s important that you comb through the hair with a multi-task brush to separate and organize your hairs.
Light and easy
Next, Batra says to find a brow pencil one shade lighter than your natural brow hairs, as you want to add to the look, not overpower your natural shape. Start from the inner brow and work your way out, filling in as heavy as desired to accomplish the “bold brow” look.
This is the most important step: Use the multi-task brush to once again comb through the brow hairs. This lets the brush naturally blend the pencil marks against your skin and spread evenly between hairs. Combing through and blending properly will help you rock those bold brows but help you avoid the painted-on, overboard look!
Use the right tools
Robby Nelson from Salon Vanity by Edmondo Blando says his best tips for brow enhancement are pencils and gel groomers. Powder and wax brow fillers are too unnatural and have a flocked, opaque appearance. “A pencil [can] subtly enhance, fill and define without detection. A sweep of gel groomer sets the look,” Nelson says.
