By now you’ve likely witnessed the frenzy Miley’s brows (or lack thereof) has caused. Perhaps the twerking phenom read the latest study on bleach and its benefits to skin and got carried away. But whitening the hair above your eyes is nothing new—just ask a model (like the women who walked Prada for Spring 2014) or Soo Joo Park, who recently posed for Vogue China sporting a choppy black wig and blond brows. Makeup artist Wendy Rowe, who created the look for the glossy, recently posted a step-by-step on her site on how to DIY without eradicating your arches. All you need is a tub of classic Jolen Creme Bleach, petroleum jelly, a spooly brush, and some blue-tinged shampoo to wash away any brassiness. Cara Delevingne may have the ability to make tweezer sales fall, but today, I’m considering investing in Clorox.
“Cara Delevingne is saving an entire generation of women [with her full and thick arches]—I plucked mine within an inch of my life [in the early nineties]. After seeing Madonna’s “Deeper and Deeper” video, my brows were gone the very next day.”
The gallery owner revealed her traumatic beauty tale to me at a dinner party celebrating the newly launched Antonio Lopez collection from MAC Cosmetics (the fashion illustrator and photographer was also the subject of an exhibition at Geiss’ downtown Manhattan space last September). Above, we pay homage to two very distinct sets of brows. And while I haven’t yet spotted Delevingne backstage this season, it’s nice to know that somewhere she’s changing some impressionable young girl’s life.
“I want to bring back the unibrow. Full brows are in—so one brow just might be next!”
Although it still remains to be seen if thick or thin will be in for Spring ’14, we’re paying homage to Streicher’s arch forecast above. Will Frida Kahlo’s famously connected brows be the inspiration backstage at the shows? Or will tweezers rise again? Only time will tell.
Lately, attention has turned to brows in a big way (thank you, Cara Delevingne). But Japanese actress Rila Fukushima went rogue last night and opted for natural, unfilled arches at the Louis Vuitton Timeless Muses exhibition in Tokyo. While we never thought we’d long for a statement lip, we’re happy to see a bold bordeaux mouth staging such a glorious comeback. So much so, we’re almost (almost) tempted to stop beefing up our brows and opt for something a bit softer and, dare we say it, sparse.
