hilary rhoda, vying for brow title


Brooke Shields has been the poster child for full eyebrows since she inspired fantasies of illegal proportions as the 15-year-old face of Calvin Klein Jeans. But as model and Estée Lauder spokeswoman Hilary Rhoda displays in the August issue of Numero (and pretty much every magazine you flip through these days), she’s the new brow queen in town. “If you want to let your brows grow in, you sometimes have to go through an ugly phase,” advises Guerlain makeup artist Jeannia Robinette, who has had the pleasure of sculpting the arches of both Shields and Rhoda. “The most natural way to keep them looking full through the process is to use an angled brush and an eyebrow powder or matte eye shadow to fill them in”—and always remember to brush them up, she adds, providing a small tip for extra impact: “I use a little stylist’s pomade on the eyebrow brush. It makes them stay and adds a little sheen.”
