One of the biggest trends in makeup in recent months has been feathered brows. Brushed up and out, imperfect yet still beautiful, the way nature intended brows to look like. For the past few years everyone has been obsessed with achieving perfect Instagram-worthy, penciled-in arches without realizing that brows should look more like cousins and not like identical twins. They look great in perfect lighting but brows that are filled in with a solid line look more ghoulish than gorgeous especially in real life. It’s refreshing to see celebrities from supermodel Cara Delevingne to local star Anne Curtis sporting this look. It exudes youthfulness and a carefree approach to beauty, yet is still very modern. Want to achieve this look for the summer? Pop-up Beauty gives you a step-by-step guide to getting the feathered brow trend.

STEP 1: Begin by brushing eyebrows upwards and outwards with a spoolie brush or a brow brush to see the natural shape of the brows. If brows are a bit sparse I suggest growing them out for a couple of weeks before attempting this look.

Step 2: Next, apply a brow wax pencil to prime the brows and give them a nice hold before filling them in. Apply directly from the tip of the pencil by pushing the eyebrows upwards and outwards with the product. Grab the same spoolie brush and continue brushing the brows until they appear naturally feathered. Remember you want your brows to look a bit messy and not perfect.

Step 3: Using a slanted edge brow pencil, start filling in the brows with light, feathery strokes beginning by the bridge of the nose following the direction of the brow hairs after applying the brow wax in Step 2. Continue following the shape of the brows you created with the wax and fill in with a slightly darker slanted pencil as you reach the tail end of the brows for added emphasis. Brush brows once more with the spoolie brush to blend everything together. Apply highlight on the brow bone to add definition.

Step 4: Finally, apply a water-resistant tinted brow gel to set brows in place and add softness and highlights to the brows. Brush the product onto the brows and use a clean spoolie brush to remove any excess brow gel to avoid product overload. Remember to continue brushing the brows upwards and out to keep the look young and modern.
