How to Wear the Eyebrow Trends French Girls Love
When it comes to destinations (and people) we seek inspiration from, there’s one high on the list – France! On a recent trip to Pinterest, we got the scoop on what French girls are Pinning right now, including their favorite new beauty trend: next-level eyebrows. We oohed and aahed at the wild brow moments and had to take them to a wearable level. Here are the top three trends that we peeped, given a wearable spin. Some may seem a little far out, but along with each of these looks is a quick suggested way to wear your makeup along with the bold brow so you can at least give it a go!
The Highlight Brow
Use highlighter for a slightly bold yet wonderfully wearable brow.
Prep: Bronzed Base Makeup: Keeping your skin base bronzed and glowing is a great way to tie in these reflective brows!
Apply a creamy golden highlighter like($26). Apply with a flat angled brow brush and go a little thick with the application. This will be your base for the golden shimmer shadow in the next step.
Next, using the same brush, apply a reflective golden eyeshadow like($22) over the highlighter.
Step 3: Blend: Finally, use an eyebrow brush to lightly blend the pigment into your brows.
We thought this look was best when we added a little bump of color to her lips! Ashley is wearing($21).
The final look? Magnifique!
We’ve seen colored brows, but having the natural fade into the pastel hue is on fleek!
The Pastel-Dipped Brow
Prep: Pretty Pink Base: When you’re going to opt for a pastel brow, you want to keep your base makeup soft, neutral and complementary to your chosen pigment. In this case, I went for a pink cheek and soft pink lip gloss with a luminous pink highlighter on my cheekbones. On my eyes, I’m wearing a simple, slightly purple cat eye to balance out the soft brows.
: Grab your normal go-to brow pencil; my obsession beyond is currently the($25). Apply to your inner eyebrows and slightly fade toward the center of your eyebrow.
Now, grab a white or cream liner like($25) and blend from the center of your lashes out to the ends. This will act as a primer for your lavender eyeshadow to show up on top with that true vibrant hue.
Finally, add your lavender eyeshadow like($19) directly over the cream liner. You’ll want to blend through the insides to the outsides of your lashes with a clean brow brush for a softer finish.
The final look is like festival makeup chic.
This may be the most extreme of the bunch, but if you thinly line the glitter with the shape of your eyebrows, then you’re golden.
The Glitter Underbrow
Prep: Orangey Shimmer Base: Because this brow is on the stronger side of the spectrum, it’s a good idea to keep your base makeup super simple. On Irene, we went with a natural eye with an orangey-bronzed blush and topped it off with a clear lip gloss so that all the focus can be on those brows, baby!
First, go for your normal brow application. Irene is using my beloved($25).
Apply a thin line directly under your eyebrow line using a thin paint brush. I love($20).
Now you can lay over your favorite glitter — I used($6) and tapped it directly over the primer.
Take this final look to a concert or a night out. Fierce, mama!
So. Much. Fun.
