Bolded brows for fashion shoot

Bolded Brow makeup

This fashion shoot collaboration with Ikwa Zhao (photographer) and Mitch Steed (stylist) was very different to our last one and equally exciting. With an androgynous feel to the styling, we agreed on a strong brow focus to carry the whole makeup look.

To achieve the accentuated brows I used MAC Fluidline – a gel eyeliner.  This isn’t a product I would ordinarily recommend using in the brow area because in natural light it looks harsh and tattoo-like. But under the strong lights in our studio I needed a product with pigment punch. Using this, I lengthened and thickened the models’ brows almost three times their natural shape!

The rest of the makeup was intentionally understated. For the base I used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation and where needed a little MAC and Kryolan concealer. The illumination and sheen comes from NARS The Multiple in Copacabana applied to the high points of their faces.

I hope you enjoy the montage above! I’ll be posting the rest of the images from the shoot soon.
