The straight brow makes shaping eyebrows easier because of the no-arch. The reason this trend is loved and applied is the youthful appearance it gives. Fashion experts say that this trend mimics what our brows looked like when we were younger and more groomed – it just gives you that fresh face appearance.
Fresh of the runway
Korean designer Alexander Wang (no surprise there) was already sporting straight eyebrows on the runway in his Fall 2014 show. The models had bleached eyebrows and very light make-up was applied for a dewy appearance. Wang made a statement without the effort and show casted Korean beauty to all. Not only designers, but make-up artists are finding inspiration from this trend, looking to nude make-up and effortless beauty.
