beauty queen: hilary rhoda

bold brows for the win.

by liza darwin

Between Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, and the rest of the Girls cast, there was more than enough eye candy at the series premiere on Monday to last all week long. But if you ask us, Hilary Rhoda's perfect bold brows deserve a shout out--even though they don't have an HBO show of their own (not yet, anyway).

Full arches are the trend that will never die, and for good reason-- from Brooke Shields to Cara Delevingne, it's a look that's timeless, classic, and totally All-American. Even if you weren't blessed with them like Rhoda, see how to fake it 'til you make it below. 

FILL IT: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo- $23

First comes the most important part! Dip an angled brush (we like this one) into running water, then dab it onto this brow palette using the color that most closely matches your natural brows. If you're unsure, pick the lighter color. But before you do anything to your face, run the brush over the back of your hand to even out clumps, and then sweep it onto your brow in an upward motion, filling it in entirely. 

GROOM IT: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear- $4.49

After you've filled in your arches and any spots, ensure the effect stays by brushing them with this clear wand.

DEFINE IT: Diorshow Overcurl Mascara- $28.50

Now that your brows are finished, make your eyes pop and define your lashes with curl-enhancing mascara.
