Cutting Edge Trends: The Monobrow!

What many don’t know about Fashion Week NYC, is that the cutting-edge makeup and designs are reserved for the models strolling around outside of Lincoln Center.  This is where–if you truly want a glimpse of the future–you need to be paying attention.

If you’re the type who wants to be on top of the trend (and the first in your city to rock it) you’ll be happy to read this roundup from the “Makeup Wars” team, filled with tutorials on how to achieve the future hot trends.

My assignment?  To teach you all how to create the perfect, almost-real, unibrow.  Yes, you read that right.  Frida Kahlo rocked it, and so can you!  The look imparts POWER and is distinctive.  Plus, you can finally abandon that pesky tweezing!  Isn’t that a relief?

Monobrow Tutorial Step 1:  The bare face.  Start the process after your foundation has been applied, but before your eyeshadow/pencil/mascara.  Eyes should still be mostly bare.

Monobrow Tutorial Step 2: Use a brow pencil.  Begin to pencil in the brows from where they end naturally, and inward toward the bridge of your nose.  Use light vertical strokes, to mimic the look of real hair.  You don’t want a solid line!

Monobrow Tutorial Step 3:  Continue Until the Brows Are Touching.  Ensure that the brows continue a natural slope downward until they touch in the center.  This look is stern, and fierce!

Monobrow Tutorial Step 4: Use Mascara.  This is the most important step to achieve this look.  Lightly brush your regular mascara shade over the top of the pencil.  This give the makeup a look of wispy hair, and people will think you just naturally look this fabulous!

  1. Al B Sure was sexy as HELL with his monobrow. I’m not surprised this trend is back, but this time for women!

  2. Love it! It really makes you look intelligent and sophisticated!

  3. I have already seen this look in nightclubs and it is so awesome. Yeah, it is a bit shocking at first, but once you look at it more, it really is very attractive! I think it will stick around for quite awhile!

  4. You look amazing! I can’t tell you have excited I am to let my unibrow grow back in. You know that myth about over plucking brows and the hair won’t grow back? Totally false! I always have to pluck. But thanks to this new beauty trend I won’t have to! I can’t wait to don my new unibrow at my next business meeting!

  5. You did such a realistic job with this trend! I wish I had a unibrow!

  6. You make it look so easy and realistic! I want a monobrow!

  7. I am so glad this look is coming to the masses now! I was outside Lincoln Center in September and all of these photogs were crowded around this plainly dress girl, I couldn’t figure out what all the fuss was. Then, I got closer and realized what the frenzy was about – she had the most amazingly full unibrow – talk about street style!

  9. Great tips to make the hair look natural!

  10. Excellent tutorial. You made it so easy to follow. This is what I needed to do this myself.

  11. Lucky me, if I actually stop threading (which I will after seeing this post), I end up with a monobrow anyway. Woot!!

  12. Love this! And I thought I could never rock the Frida look b/c I tweezed the bejezus out of my brows as a youngun and now I don’t have much left… I have a really nice dark brown eyeliner marker; would that work as well as a pencil? I think the line might be finer.

  13. AWESOME tutorial!! The end result is so realistic! I will be using this everyday! ;)

  14. Not matter how long I would be willing to try, my hair would NEVER grow in between my current brows. So, I guess the monobrow is just not in the cards for me! Interesting look for the younger woman…wink, wink, or should I say blink, blink!
