If you ask a makeup artist about the hot trends for eyebrows, a good one will recommend only to wear what looks good on you, whatever the season might be. However, just like fashion and makeup trends, eyebrow trends have changed over the years. From the excessive plucking of the 90s and the pencil-thin, arched eyebrows of the 2000s to Cara Delevigne’s bushy eyebrows, we’ve come a long way. The good news about eyebrow trends for 2020 is that “natural” is the name of the game. With few exceptions (such as the unibrow, still holding strong), it’s easy to have fashionable eyebrows these days. So, what’s hot this year?
Natural eyebrows: no drama, just care
Many Hollywood celebrities, as well as beauty influencers, have already embraced the trend of natural eyebrows. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have to care about your eyebrows at all! A beautiful shape that fits your face well is still important. However, you can completely forget about very big, very dark, or intense eyebrows. The drama is gone, so tone down your eyebrows!
The windswept brow is the new direction
If you didn’t like brushing your eyebrows up for the last (I don’t know how many) years, the good news is that we’re totally over it now. There’s a new direction in town, so better get familiar with the windswept brow. In just a few words, it means brushing the eyebrows from the inner corner of the eye towards the temple. It’s easy, looks natural, and it will make your eyebrows look longer and fuller.
To avoid getting bored with your au naturel brows, here comes texture! This trend is more focused on the structure of the eyebrows and their fullness than on their shape. The key to getting beautiful natural textured eyebrows is to use a gel to keep everything in place. The gel will also create a lifting effect, which can erase years from your face. More than this, the eyebrow gel can help you get more fullness, in case you need it. The look is fresh, chic, and very natural.
What you might need to be in line with the eyebrow fashion trends of 2020:
As is often the case in the fashion and beauty industry, “natural” doesn’t come as easy as it sounds. The eyebrows still need to be styled to perfection, and for an eyebrow enthusiast at the beginning of the journey, this could be quite a daunting task. To make things easier, there is something called Cirepil Perron Rigot Brow System. This kit is fantastic because it can help you take care of your brows at home, without the need to go to a specialist (as often). You can use the brow shades to give texture and fullness to the eyebrows and the pencil for contour and definition. The kit has a gel to keep your eyebrows in place once you’re pleased with their look. It comes with a step by step guide, so you won’t need fancy tutorials on Youtube to get you where you want to be.
Another good kit is the one from Jane Iredale - GreatShape Eyebrow Kit. You’ll want to carry this in your purse with you everywhere you go. It’s small and addictive if you like lustrous, smooth brows. The kit contains a pigmented powder for volume and a wax to set the eyebrows. The powder is water-resistant, which is terrific if you’re prone to sweating, want to dive in the pool, or head to the gym. And the wax does more than fixing, and it also nourishes the brows for a soft and smooth look. The case is rose gold, and it features a mirror, so more good news!
If you’re no longer a freshman when it comes to creating that perfect eyebrow arch, you’ll probably find the Youngblood Brow Artiste Kit useful. This kit makes it easy to create the ideal shape for your eyebrows with the ultra-premium tweezers, the unique brush, and tinted wax. Youngblood Brow Artiste Kit comes in four different colour themes. It has Auburn, Blonde, Brunette, and Dark, each one of them featuring two different powder shades. It comes in an elegant black case with a mirror.
Jane Iredale Pure Brow Gel is great for naturally tinting brow hairs. Your brows will get smoother and more manageable with this gel, so keep it in your beauty case all the time. What’s interesting about this gel is that it can hide gray hairs and can also be used as a mascara. So, it’s like a 2-in-1 makeup kit for your eyes in just one gel.
If your brows have never fully recovered after the 90s plucking madness and you are struggling with their shape and fullness, Jane Iredale Retractable Brow Pencil is probably a must-have for you. It provides you with a microblading experience without the pain, the risks, and the semi-permanent results. In fewer words, you can draw your brows and fill in the blanks any time you want perfectly defined eyebrows. The pencil shape allows precise strokes and gives you perfect control. The formula is waterproof and doesn’t smudge, so you don’t have to worry about your eyebrows all day long, whatever you might be doing!
