Unless you have been living under a rock (or don’t have any form of social media), we are sure you are familiar with the “Instagram Brow” otherwise known as “the fade” or the “HD brow”. It has been around for a couple years now, and is basically the “ombre” of brow hair…
Basically, it consists of the beginning section of the brow being barely there but thickens and darkens towards the end. The reason it has become so popular on social media is because it photographs so well. Unfortunately, in real life, it is not quite as flattering. It is no secret that at Phoenix Cosmetics, we are very much brow obsessed and us Pink Ladies are definitely big fans of bold eyebrows… but there is a fine line between well-defined brows and looking like a drag queen. In fact, this whole brow trend was actually started by drag queens!
Wayne Goss, a makeup artist and beauty guru who is very much against this trend, says this:
“Eyebrows are a frame. Now imagine buying the most beautiful picture you’ve ever seen. One of sheer beauty. And then you put it in the darkest, thickest, ugliest frame you’ve ever seen. That’s what happens when you go mental on the brows.”
However, if you’re still not one to put down the brow products, Goss recommends keeping the rest of your face minimal to bare, and keep your eyebrows as the focal point (to avoid looking drag-ish). A second option is to grow out your eyebrows until they are as thick as you’d like, and then pop into your local Phoenix to have them shaped to perfection!
