Fall Trend: Bushy Brows By Mai Quynh

Best Of Brows!

“I’ve seen a lot of big, full brows on the runways, like Chanel and Dior Fall 2013 Couture. I’m very excited to see that trend on the red carpet: Think Keira Knightly, Lily Collins, Rooney Mara and Cara Delevingne. A good brow is EVERYTHING! Fill those puppies in!

Brows can be filled in with either eyeshadow, pencil, wax pot or colored brow gel/mousse. Depending on how dramatic you’d like them, any of these products can work for you. The key is in application and blending. Typically a stiff, angled eyeliner brush is recommended to apply eyeshadow to brows, but I prefer using a fluffy eyeshadow brush for application. It distributes less color so that it looks more natural. Also, you can mix a couple of brow products together. Use a wax pot and then add eyeshadow in certain areas. Or apply a brow pencil and then brush them out with a colored gel.” —Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh, who works with Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Amber Heard and Ginnifer Goodwin.

Mai’s 4 favorite fall brow products are:

1. NARS Brow Gel ($22)
2. Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencils ($22)
3. Votre Vu Arch De Triumphe Brow Definer ($17)
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo ($23)

Editor’s Pick:
*Help sparse eyebrows grow with Anastasia’s Brow Enhancing Serum Advanced ($45). Apply nightly – this stuff really works!

  • I have a product to add to the list! I tried out the CEW Prestige Box from Birchbox last month (fabulous, by the way, highly recommend for the next time they offer it), and it came with the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil. LOVE this pencil, really great. Here’s a write-up of it: http://fullclutch.com/13497/fc-review-it-cosmetics-brow-power/
