Ever since Cara Delevingne popped up on the scene with all that beautiful bushy-ness and boy brow goodness – there’s been a slight societal obsession with nailing a good set of arches. Which probably ain’t such a bad thing considering the unfortunate truth that your brows really can make or break your face (so girl, be careful when you’re waving them tweezers around cos I’m already struggling over here – why, oh why did my gene pool not deliver me an abundance of hair???… Actually, scrap that. You gotta be careful of what you’re wishing for out there!)
With the recent National Brow Day celebrating all that is sharp or shapely, we thought it only fitting to take a look at those girls who are slaying in the brow department. We’re talking some ultimate brow game here…
The Queen. The one that had everyone taking pics of Cara into their salon and saying, “Hit a sister up with these, please. And yes, I do realise I have a thin layer of hair to work with, but ain’t that what Benefit’s Gimme Brow is for?!” Never before has so much brow hair been brushed backwards.
What Cara has nailed in the boy brow, Huda has covered in the structured corner. Perfectly groomed – the shape of these are seriously like an archway to heaven.
The babe of all babes. With all the other perfections she’s got going on – why are we not surprised that her eyebrows are also coming in hot. Dayum you Emily.
Captioning a recent Instagram post “Brows. Must. Be. Right.” – Lucy Hale clearly has her priorities straight. And while good genetics play a part (another recent post had her beside her gloriously bushy-browed father with the caption: “Papa Bear takes on the Couve 🇨🇦 Ya wonder where I got my brows from? 😏”), we’re pretty sure there’s a fair bit of spoolie and pencil action going on in there…
The definition! Those tapered ends! That perfect curve! Zendaya… will you be mine?!
Girl got it going on. Her tools of the trade? The Kelly Baker Brow Highlighter in Light and the Angle Spooly Brush to begin, and then the MAC Brow Set in a shade lighter than her brows to give them a slight tint.
Yep, we admit. We are definitely part of the Kaia Gerber appreciation society over here. And while we’ve probably spent a little too much time examining that ridiculous face of hers – it does mean we’ve clocked up plenty of brow gazing. And they be good. We’re putting it out there… some of the best in the business?!
When we don’t have her song “Be The One” playing on repeat (yep, it’s true. And yes, I know it’s been out for a while now and I should really move on), we’re scrolling her feed for eyebrow inspo. As you do. Am I the only one who does that?!
Is it wrong to say that I don’t actually know what Camilla Belle does? Or how she’s famous? All I know is – you keep that brow game up Camilla, and I’ll keep caring about you (although obviously not caring enough to actually find out what you do…🤔🤔)
And then there was Sarah. Even when they’re not groomed, these brows mean business. And by business, we mean werking it.
