AGAINST THE GRAIN
One of my favorite models, Camille Rowe, taught me this a few years ago when I was happily in the mind frame that brows had to be smoothed over and perfectly groomed. She borrowed my spoolie brush and directed the beginning hairs inward, away from the others. Instantly I saw how sexy and youthful it made everything and my perspective on brows was changed for life. Here’s how to get the look:
- A Spoolie Brush or Brow Gel: I would advise a brow gel because you want them to stay in place. My three favorites are Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, Amazing Cosmetics Brow Gel and Sonia Kashuk Brow Gel.
- Place the wand/spoolie brush at the base of the brow. Instead of brushing them straight up, “pull” and direct them inward towards the opposite brow. Repeat to make sure there is no hair left behind! Once you have brushed the beginning hairs inward, you can brush the rest of the “base” hairs straight up.
- Now that the beginning hairs are directed toward the opposite brow and the rest of the base hairs are directed straight up, brush the tail hairs outward in the direction of their natural growth.
We know that brow styles are a personal preference so if you’re not into this natural look, that’s ok! Just please be respectful to our readers who like it in our comments below! Thanks!
