Brows are back in full force! Whether you wear a thick classic arch or rock out with a superglam glittery brow, there’s a cool look to suit everyone. The queen of trendsetting, Lady Gaga, has been sporting bold brows and we’ve taken notice. Want to know how you can get “wow” brows? We asked the owner of the NYC’s Wink Brow Bar, Umbreen Sheikh, who shared tips on how to work these looks – fearlessly!
For Glam Brows
GAGA’s WAY: Bold, shiny and attention grabbing – Gaga’s brows scream chic and high fashion style!
REAL WAY: For a less obvious everyday shine, Umbreen says to “try a highlighter, like the one found in my Brows on Fleek quad to accentuate the brow bones and sweep on a light layer of shimmer without the glittery look! Just have a light hand and dab on lightly at the highest point of your brow arch for a sophisticated look!”
For Bold Vintage Brows
GAGA’s WAY: Gaga owns the full, lush look of these brows – they’re an ever popular style that is accentuated by a defined and clean-cut arch, elongated at the ends à la Liz Taylor.
REAL WAY: Umbreen aims for a less is more approach: she says to use brow powders, as they are “best to not make your brows look overdone or fake when you have sparse or thinned brows. I prefer this over any other type of product, as it ensures the natural, yet bold look that is so popular now! My least preferred are pencils, as this can make your brows look too harsh and is not very foolproof. Start by standing a little further back from the mirror and apply with an angled brush and use very little product, starting where your brow is lined up with the corner of your inner eye, closest to the nose. Brush outward in light strokes and you’re done! “
For 60s Mod Brow
GAGA’s WAY: Here, Gaga nods to the 60s Mod look of girls like Edie Sedgwick and Twiggy with her fanned out, dark and contrasting brows!
REAL WAY: Want to take your brow a darker shade but don’t know how? Try tinting! Umbreen says, “Tinting brows is a great option for women looking to add fullness and definition to their brows. The process takes about 10 minutes where specific product is applied directly to the brows lasting from 3-4 weeks. Tinting can be done both at home and at a professional brow bar but I would always recommend you go to a professional or risk irritating or burning your skin. Wink’s technicians are highly trained in this as well!”
