FEMALE Beauty Faves: How To Get Model Brows

Those effortlessly untamed but gorgeous brows define the editorial model look. Think of Cara Delevingne and her magnificent bold brows!

The good news is you don’t even have to be a model to rock the look, thanks to beauty blogger Gina Shkeda. Her technique will work even if you aren’t naturally blessed in the brow department. Just see how Gina transforms her brows from this..

..to this!

1. Brush up your brows

First, Gina uses a brow gel to brush her brow hairs up, creating that distinct editorial brow shape. You’ll get a similar effect as that now famous soap brow trick, but with a much easier way. Opt for a product that offers a nice firm hold without being too shiny or crunchy. Gina switches between the  Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

2. Draw in more hair

With your brows in place, now all you need to do is fill in any sparse areas and make them look thicker and fluffier. But hold on before you reach for your favourite pencil or powder– the key to this look is to get the most realistic-looking fake brow hairs as possible, and for that, you need a liquid brow liner. Like a liquid eyeliner, liquid brow pens use a brush tip to deposit lines of pigment or tint, so you can literally draw on each individual hair, paying extra attention to the hairs above your brow line.

Gina uses the new MAC Shape + Shade Brow Tint in Spiked, which hasn’t reached Malaysia yet, so here’s an alternative. Or you can use a brown liquid eyeliner with a very, very light hand.
