beauty mark: brow enhancers

how to channel your inner cara delevingne.

by katie dickens

If Cara Delevigne's ubiquity has sent you into a wimpy brow shame spiral, then it may be time for an arch intervention. First, lay off the tweezers (or just use them to pluck out wayward hairs), then fake bulk with a range of options from pencils to powders to tinted gels. The point is to look as if you're naturally blessed with abundant brows, not like you've painted them on so use a light touch and stick to a shade that closely matches your hair color.
