Full and dark.

I wasn't going to post anything about the beauty look at Chloé because I thought, at first glance, there was nothing to talk about. But then I noticed a pattern: all the girls had MAY-JUH BROWS. Oh, and pinky lips. But mostly it was about the brows.

Now, I know what you may be thinking. You might not have come 'round to the full-brows thing yet. It's okay, I get it. It's not really all that long ago that I got over a LONG period of over-tweezing, which is a condition quite similar to blonderexia, in which you tell your esthetician: "No! More! I need more! I want [my hair blonder/my brows thinner]!" Etc. It really is a disease, I'm telling you.

But let me just show you how good full, defined brows can look. I swear they make you look younger (and seriously, it's not just because these girls are 17 years old).

Here we go. First up, brows with medium brown hair:


Dark brown hair:


Medium blonde hair:

And the blondest:



See? They look good with any hair colour. And notice how they instantly make your face more polished—even if you aren't wearing a lot of makeup otherwise? Yes, it's a good trick.

(The only other beauty tricks I like better are the instant wake-up-your-face concealer trick and the secret-eyeliner trick. Go click on those links and check 'em out!)

Anyway, back to brows. The product I'm loving best right now for natural-looking brows (did you hear me? I said NATURAL) is Dior's Brow Styler. The reason I like it is because of the oh-so-fine tip, which allows you to create the effect of real hair. Well, almost.

Other good brow bets: anything by Anastasia Beverly Hills or Benefit (both available at Sephora).
