Beauty Refresh: Bold Brows

Hello, drama: Major eyebrows are majorly in this season.

Go ahead and cancel your spring appointments with your brow-shaping guru. This year, heavy, defined brows ruled the runways, replacing thin, delicate arches with thick framing and dark tints. Yes, some of these ’60s-mod looks are perhaps too bold for everyday wear—but toned down a touch and paired with a clean, natural face, they’re an easy, minimal-fuss update.

So what’s a thin-browed gal to do? We’ve rounded up three of our fave eyebrow kits, at the ready to artfully take yours from dainty to daring.

1) Anastasia Beverly Hills No Brows, No Problem Kit
From the
queen bee of brows, Anastasia’s kit includes the brand’s best-selling
Brow Wiz pencil and a clear setting gel. But the star is the
brow-enhancing serum, which claims it will fill in your brows the
natural way. $59 at Sephora.

2) Too Faced Brow Envy Brow Shaping & Defining Kit
fully loaded palette boasts a bevy of eyebrow-specific products,
including a setting wax, highlighter, colored powders, a pencil, mini
tweezers, two mini brushes, three stencils, and a step-by-step guide.
$35 at Too Faced.

3) Lorac Take a Brow
a simpler approach? Lorac’s kit features only the bare necessities: two
hues of brow powder, plus a clear setting wax. $22 at Beauty Bar.
