New beauty trend: the bleached brow look

November 2, 2010

Highly defined brows may have been a big trend at the S/S 2011 GANT show but another rising trend in fashion is almost it’s complete opposite; the bleached brow look.  For 2010, natural shapes may still the predominant eyebrow style; however, one thing has definitely taken a big turn is color.  Bleached brows are popping up all over the place on the runway, in photo shoots, and even on America’s Next Top Model.

Whether you are working on a photo shoot, or just looking to try this look out yourself, knowing how to get the bleached brow look without the commitment of actually bleaching your brows is a valuable bit of knowledge that every makeup artist should know.

Getting the bleached brow look with TEMPTU PRO:

1.  Start by applying S/B Primer on and around the brow area.  This will help prime and perfect the skin, allowing for an even smoother makeup application.

2.  Next use S/B Adjuster in 030 White to cover up the brow and set a natural base for the lighter brow color.  You may have to apply more then one layer for darker brows.

3.  Finally to get that bleached brow look, airbrush S/B Airbrow Color 064 Natural Blonde onto the brow area until desired color is achieved.  If you want to lighten the color for a whiter, more dramatic effect, add a drop or two of our lighter S/B Foundation shades like, 001 Porcelain or 002 Blush Ivory to your gun’s cup.

Voila!  You now have a bleached brow that’s runway-ready or picture perfect without the commitment of actually having to bleach your brows
