Ariana Grande’s thick brows are the stuff of dreams – here’s two ways to achieve the look.
26 July 2022
In true Grande style, the singer, actress and soon-to-be beauty mogul Ariana Grande recently posted a glowing selfie, undeniably marketing her beauty brand, r.e.m. beauty. But, it isn’t just her flawless skin we can’t stop staring at – it’s her perfect brows.
We asked Lead Stylist at HD Brows, Jamie Long, how to achieve the look.
“Ariana is seen rocking a bold, archless brow. She has lovely and naturally healthy brows anyway, and now she’s embracing the much fuller, darker brows in a soft shape, adding a modern twist to a classic brow look.
“Her brows are framed with only a subtle arch, inspired by the iconic Audrey Hepburn brow.” Says Jamie. “When people refer to the classic Audrey Hepburn brow, it’s typically the brow look from her 1954 movie, Sabrina.
“Many celebs have recreated the look, from Meghan Markle to Lily Collins to now Ariana. If you have big eyes and dark hair, you can pull this look off.”
“The tail of the brow is lifted slightly to open up the eyes and lift the face, which keeps the eyes looking youthful and fresh. It’s a brow style that is universally flattering, but it works really well with Ariana’s soft features.
“The brows are bang on trend right now, and they really suit her, and complement the rest of her makeup perfectly which includes a warm smokey eye, bronzed cheeks and a nude, glossy lip.”
According to Jamie, there are two ways to achieve the look – microblading or brow lamination.
Brow lamination is a treatment given to achieve instantly fuller looking, fluffed up eyebrows using your existing hair. We asked Lead Stylist at HD Brows, Jamie Long, how this works:
“Brow lamination is a two-step eyebrow perming treatment that involves correcting the brow shape by setting the hairs in place using a chemical solution. In the first step, a cream is applied that breaks down bonds in the eyebrow hairs so they can be manipulated into a new position. In the second step, another cream is applied to rebuild these bonds and set the brows in their new uniform position.
“If you have unruly, flat or downward growing hairs, eyebrow lamination can change the direction of growth to create a more uniform look with a higher arch and a more desirable brow shape. Brow lamination lasts 4 to 6 weeks generally, with proper care allowing the brow treatment to last as long as 8 weeks.”
We asked experts at leading permanent makeup brand, KB Pro, how to achieve the Megan Markle brows with microblading. “Microblading is a method used to create super realistic hair stroke brows. It involves using a disposable hand-tool with super fine needles to deposit pigment within the upper dermis layer of the skin to create the illusion of brow hair.”
“From the mature client who has very sparse eyebrows, to the lady who has over plucked her brows in the 90’s – this treatment works for almost everyone.”
