Spring 2012 Beauty Trend: Full Brows
Full of it: Thick brows at Derek Lam, Donna Karan, and Marc Jacobs
Ladies, step away from the tweezers.
It seems that bold eyebrows, as seen on the fall runways, aren't going anywhere just yet. In fact, thick, dark arches made a statement at many a Spring 2012 show.
“It’s Elizabeth Taylor at the gym,” he told FashionEtc. He conjured the look (right) by creating a more “lived-in” brow via eye shadow, not a pencil.
Joseph Altuzarra revealed to New York Magazine that the idea came more as a last-minute fluke: After bleaching one of the model's hair for the show, they slicked on some black mascara at the fitting, just for kicks, and were sold. “It just looked so strong and sharp,” the designer said.
But brows weren't just a trend in New York. Across the pond, Erdem's arches were unbrushed, creating a thicker, wilder look.
If you haven't already started growing out your brows for fall, what are you waiting for? Spring is just around the corner.
