During my fashion week beauty round ups, I briefly mentioned one of the neon brow looks and how to recreate it. But I didn’t go into detail. I keep seeing this look everywhere so I thought I would try it for myself in a variety of different ways that don’t involve any pre bleaching.
For the first method, I just used a lip liner pencil (Mac’s Embrace Me) without any base on the brows:
Obviously I need to get my eyebrows done so ignore the shape, but without any base I thought this worked well. Because its a pencil it was easy to control, however you can still see my hair colour underneath.
The next method I used was applying a base of white pencil, and then going over the brows with a matte eyeshadow:
In terms of covering up my natural brow colour, this worked well. You just need to make sure the eyeshadow you use is pigmented enough to create a more opaque look.
The third method I used was lipstick applied with an eyebrow brush:
This probably worked the least well because despite using a matte lipstick, it still created a very sheer look. When colouring your eyebrows, sheer is the last thing you want.
Finally I used my new Velvetines dupe lip colour, applied with its own wand, and gone over with a Mac lip liner in Currant:
This method was the best for covering my natural eyebrows, but mainly because I used a dark colour. Because the lacquer applies wet and dries matte, it was really good at creating a matte opaque look that lasts all day. It lasts so well in fact that it was hard to take off.
Regardless, this is a fun, albeit bold, look and its a creative take on the eyebrow obsession of the nation.
