Back in the day, before my quarter life crisis, I was a BIG America’s Next Top Model fan—I mean like, who wasn’t? But for some super weird reason, one episode stands out in my mind more than any other. In the particular scene, Tyra Banks informs one of the contestants about the importance of filling in her sparse brows. Tyra even confesses that her own makeup artist chastises her whenever she goes out and has her picture taken without her “eyebrows on.” Oddly enough, that phrase has stuck with me since and now, I never leave the house without my “eyebrows on.”
That’s why, with the announcement of Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne‘s relationship, I decided to emulate the supermodel’s signature brows and put on my own for #beautynewbie.
So to create the look, I used BENEFIT GIMME BROW in MEDIUM DEEP. I applied the wand to my brows with short and light strokes, paying special attention to naturally sparser areas and focusing on the front areas to give it a more natural look. I also extended the fill past my natural line to create a bolder feel. Finally, I swept over each brow with a brow brush to ensure that the gel was spread evenly without clumps.
Now if only I could look as cute with crossed-eyes….
Have a trend you’d like to see me try? Tweet me @han_cran, #beautynewbie, with your suggestion!
