How to get the look:
Step 1: Prep Your Brows
First things first, you want to make sure that your metallic brows stay put all day long so it’s best to start with a few swipes of the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Clear Brow Mascara. This will add volume to your brows while giving the makeup from the next step something to stick to for a long-lasting look.
Step 2: Apply Metallic Makeup
Choose from the eye makeup shades above or use a metallic eye shadow or eyeliner that you own to create your metallic brows. When applying the makeup, be sure follow the same outline that you would with traditional eyebrow makeup. With this technique, you can cover your full brows, or, if you’re a bit nervous to rock such bold brows, you can start off with dipped tails. If you opt for the latter, be sure to fill in the thicker front of your brows with your regular eyebrow makeup, followed by colorful tails.
Step 3: Pair with Minimal Makeup
As with any bold makeup look, metallic brows call for simple face makeup so that they can stand front and center without competition. Not sure where to start? We love how metallic brows look when paired with a touch of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Mystic Black, a full face of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, and a quick kiss of lip color using the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red.
