We are fully in the swing of summer, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Our schedules are already filling up with road trips to the beach, ice cream dates and tons of outdoor adventures. And with all that warm-weather fun comes tons of new beauty inspo. Enter the totally counterintuitive but oh-so-chic trend sweeping our IG feeds. Sure, going lighter with our ‘dos is a must, but we say keep those perfect brows dark, bold and beautiful. This combo works for everyone because it adds a bit of unexpected drama without going overboard. Still not sure if you’re ready to give this trend a try? See how these 12 Instababes are rocking the beauty combo below.

1. Femme Fatale: Sophia’s take on this look is anything but subtle. Try mixing it up for daytime with a braided updo and a nude lip.

2. Boho Goddess: Francis’ makeup is beautiful, but we can’t take our eyes off her bold brows and ombre tresses. If you’re rocking the unicorn hair + strong brow look, a slight cat eye and bohemian accessories are the perfect match.

3. Bubble Gum Bombshell: We’re loving this marriage between Hailie’s cotton-candy mane and to-die-for brows, but if you’re not ready to take the unicorn hair plunge, opt for a blonde shade with summery golden highlights. Either way, don’t be afraid to go all out on your brows.

4. Curl Action: For those of you blessed with a head of curls that are straight-up GORGEOUS, create a striking contrast with a pair of sleek brows. Gel them so they stay in place, and add a matte lipstick for the perfect everyday beauty look.

5. Bold and Blonde: If you’re a proponent of the no-makeup makeup look, copy Kimberly’s tousled locks and slightly darker brows. Keep the rest of your look neutral to let your brows take center stage.

6. Summer Glow: Even though sun-kissed locks will be all over the place this season, it’s a good idea to add a bit of contrast with subtly dark brows and kissable pink lips. Add a few bangles and a cute AF top and you’re good for picnics in the park with your boo.

7. Wild Couture: Don’t let a rainy day stop you from rocking this beauty look. All you need is a bit of hairspray to tame the flyaways and a brown pencil to fill in your beautiful arches.

8. Cotton Candy Love: Channel those kawaii vibes with this super adorable hair color and perfectly sculpted brows. Whether you’re staying in bed all day or going out with the girls, this beauty combo is perfect for any occasion.

9. ’90s Grunge Heartthrob: Nicole is pulling on our heartstrings with her killer dark brows and platinum white hair. With her copper lips and round sunglasses, she’s ready for a GNO at the local concert venue.

10. Beach Babe Muse: While Christina’s lips might be ready for some summer action, her newly blonde ‘do is what we’re raving about. This brow and hair combo will be perfect with your low-cut maxi dress and espadrille shoes.

11. Classically Sweet: Nothing is more perfect than this chic look. Match your brows with your roots and lightly tousle you hair for an edgy, unkept feel.

12. Keep It Golden: Bring a hint of summer to your brows by dying them a rich golden color. This look is bold enough to wear during those hot, humid days where you only need to rock a fresh face with a swipe of lip balm.
