What are straight eyebrows and why are they set to be the biggest trend of 2023?
The straight eyebrow trend is a style of eyebrow grooming that involves shaping the brows into a straight, angular line, as opposed to a more curved or arched shape.
Think of celebrities such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Ariana Grande.
This trend started to become popular when it looked as though many celebrities were using cosmetic threading, to lift the tail of their brow. Some people prefer this brow style, because they feel it helps to lift the face, creating a more youthful appearance.
Of course, not all of us want to make permanent or even semi-permanent changes to our face. Thankfully, the makeup artists and beauty influencers of social media developed a few techniques to create the illusion of a straight brow.
Want to try the straight brow trend of 2023? Try the following techniques.
- Ask your brow specialist to ensure you have now rogue hairs under the tail of your brow. We’d advise against removing the tail of your brow altogether, like some influencers are doing.
- Opt for a Brow lamination to create as much lift as possible.
- Use a strong hold brow wax like our Alison Jade Brow Freeze to hold your brows in place all day. Tame unruly brows with this customisable, long-lasting styling wax! Our unique formula will lock every hair in place without flaking, residue or looking stiff creating the perfect feathered brow. One swipe and you are left with full brows that last all day!
- When you are applying your foundation base, apply a small amount of concealer to cover the tail end of your brow. Then use a brow pencil or powder to draw the tail of your brow on slightly higher that your natural brow.
While the straight eyebrow trend has received a lot of attention and praise from beauty enthusiasts, it is not necessarily suitable for everyone. It is important to consider your face shape and personal preferences.
