Studies have shown that eyebrows are actually the most important feature of your face, so why go down the aisle with unkempt arches. And they are having a serious moment thanks to bold eyebrow queen Cara Delevingne. Take some tips from Brow Expert Zoey Van Jones for a plan on how to grow them out and achieve your perfect shape.
The Universal Bold Brow
"The brow is so pivotal to what a person looks like", says Van Jones, who has her own brow studio in the Los Angeles area. "Groomed brows can take five to ten years off a face or make anyone look more sophisticated." So how can you achieve your perfect brow in time for your wedding day? Go to a professional brow artist three to six months in advance to get properly shaped and grow out into that shape.
Now, not all of us are lucky enough to have the amazing Delevingne genes to fill in that universal rectangular bridge. However, the brow artist's job is to reshape the arch so it can best achieve this natural look based on the parameters of your growth. If you struggle with growing out your brows if you have over-tweezed or threaded, there is still hope. Serums like neuBrow are proven to speed up growth, or you can always try out some DIY options. Van Jones reports, "I have seen decent results with castor oil. I think it works for some, not everybody. But it's super simple."
For Your Wedding Day
While growing and shaping is the first step in achieving your best wedding arches, you should not forget the most important step: makeup. "On your wedding day, you're supposed to look like the best version of you", says Van Jones. "So your makeup should be very light with lots of lashes and bold virginal brows."
To achieve this look, you are going to need the essentials. Brow powder is the first step in your brow routine. Van Jones suggests starting at the middle of brow and filling in the outside first. Once that is full, fill in the front lightly with a lighter color. Follow up by lightly filling in sparse areas with a waterproof brow pencil. Then to get a feathered look, brush up our brows with a tinted gel to achieve brows that can make it through the night. Remember, "each brow is a little puzzle" and once you crack it, make sure to take pictures for your makeup artist to replicate for your wedding day!
