If you’ve picked up a fashion magazine or scrolled through your social media feeds lately (and we’re willing to bet you have), perhaps you’ve noticed that one of the season’s hottest beauty trends involves some seriously imaginative eyebrow makeup. We’re talking about colorful brows. That’s right, this trend has even been spotted on a member of reality TV’s most famous family! Where you’re likely used to keeping your arches natural, albeit emphasized, there’s a good chance you’ve yet to hop on the colorful eyebrow bandwagon. Girl, we totally understand! Embracing something so untraditional can be a tad nerve-wracking! No worries though, with the right eye makeup products and techniques, you’ll be flaunting bold rainbow eyebrows on the regular. Here’s how to rock this colorful makeup trend just like your favorite celebrities.
OUR BEST BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO CREATE COLORFUL EYEBROWS
While there aren’t a ton of colorful eyebrow makeup products on the market, there are plenty of other eye makeup products that can fit the bill to help you get the look. With the right tips and tricks, you can use colored eyeliner, eye shadow, and even mascara to create your colored eyebrow look. Here are a few suggestions:
If you love sculpted eyebrows and have a steady hand…try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Rose Gold. You can paint the eyeliner on, filling in sparse spots with the trendiest color imaginable.
If you want to use colored mascara on your brows…try the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy or Cobalt Blue. Swipe the mascara through your brows just like you would a brow mascara!
If you’re going to be in warm weather or have oily skin…try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Purple, Cobalt Blue, or True Teal. Apply these eyeliner pencils the same way you apply your everyday eyebrow pencil.
If you want to embrace the metallic trend…try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallic Eye Shadow in Rose Chrome or Violet Luster. Dip an angled eyeshadow brush into the shadow and fill in your arches as if you were using a brow powder or pomade.
Once you choose your product and color, it’s business as usual. Follow the right application technique for the product you picked and make sure you have a bottle of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types on hand for touch-ups.
THE BEST FACE MAKEUP TO PAIR WITH COLORFUL EYEBROWS
The beautiful thing about colorful eyebrows is that they can be worn with or without face makeup. If you opt for the former, it’s important to make sure that your face makeup doesn’t try to compete with your eyebrows—they should be the focal point of your look. That’s why we’ve created an easy-to-follow makeup tutorial below that will accentuate your facial features without taking away from the beauty trend you’ve just embraced.
STEP 1: PRIME YOUR COMPLEXION
Whenever you want your face makeup to last, it’s important to start with face makeup primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer. Simply blend a dime-sized amount of primer onto skin, then move on to the next step.
STEP 2: APPLY FOUNDATION
Next up, foundation. Again, you have the option of choosing between two separate finishes: the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. Opt to apply your foundation with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for a seamless look.
STEP 3: CONCEAL ANY DISCOLORATIONS
Foundation may not completely cover that pesky pimple or irritation. That’s where concealer comes in: a few dabs of the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage can go a long way. Simply apply it to any troubled areas and use your makeup blender to blend it out.
STEP 4: HIGHLIGHT
Highlighter is one of those products that never competes, it just ties the full look together. So, make sure to swipe one of the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks onto your cheekbones and the very tip of your nose. Just be sure to use a super-fluffy brush so that it looks like natural illumination and not layered-on makeup.
STEP 5: SET YOUR LOOK
To seal your look, dust some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Powder from your forehead to your chin. This face powder goes on super-sheer and will give your makeup look major staying power.
STEP 6: GIVE YOUR LASHES SOME LOVE
Last but not least, swipe on some mascara. To really accentuate what you’re working with, start with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base and follow it up with a layer of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Mystic Black.
