I love colored in brows, but I’m still trying to figure out if I can get away with this look in real life. This is definitely something I’ll have to experiment with at a dark, nighttime party. I wanted to accentuate the color of the brows so I left the rest of the makeup fairly minimal. I started by lining the outer corners of my upper and lower lid with NARS liquid liner. The top lid liner is winged slightly and the bottom lid liner is very soft, almost a shadow. Next I applied Copperplate to the entire lid, concentrating the pigment slightly more in the inner corners of the eyes and diffusing lightly up to the inner corners of the brow. I also add a touch of the shadow under my lower lash line, but only on the outer corners. Then I applied the HollywoodLand pencil to the inner corners of my eyes.
Next, using a small angled brush I applied the teal Aqua Cream to my brows in small short strokes. I have pretty full eyebrows naturally, but if you are thinner brows you might want to make them a little fuller with the teal shadow. This is supposed to be a statement, so if your brows are thin and teal it could look a little strange.
Last I applied mascara and light pink blush to the apples of my cheeks, as well as a touch over my lips.
I just got the go-ahead from Amanda on the eyebrows. I will drag her to whatever party I wear this to so I’m guaranteed at least one person will talk to me.
From her email:
"Colored eyebrows are dope. I think this is something you can get away with on the regular. I am not humoring when I say that it is some jazzy make-up I can get behind.
In other news, emails from Amanda always make me laugh.
We’re super excited to show you our latest and greatest project: the first ever video for our Home Try-On Program.
This is great, very well done!
