Step away from the tweezers. Forget wacky bleach jobs and the wimpy, overplucked brows of seasons past. Say hello to healthy, heavily filled-in arches as seen at Yves Saint Laurent, Chloé, and Balenciaga. "It's all about a bold shape with a slightly square and straight edge for a boyish feel," says makeup artist Diane Kendal, who sculpted brows using MAC Eye Shadow in Brun backstage at Alexander Wang. For a softer look, "use a pencil to fill in gaps, then brush hairs up with a clear gel," says Benefit brow expert Hilary Foote.
