Fashion Week

Move over power brows, statement lashes are having a moment

Dense arches are taking a backseat as the beauty focus shifts to defined lashes.

Eyebrows are fading out at Fashion Week. Drawn-on and doll-like lower lashes with a ‘60s vibe took centre stage at Brandon Maxwell and Christian Dior, where eyebrows were completely obscured by veiled bucket hats. Courreges echoed the Twiggy signature with vivid spidery extensions and Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini chose distinctly bottom-heavy flutterers for a smoky beauty look. 

At Dries Van Noten, eyebrows were full and natural but it was the dark metallic glitter placed closely around top and bottom lids that stood out to give eyes a pop-out cartoonish look. At Byblos and Vivetta, there was a dramatic shift to pure white lashes for an icy, frost-bitten look that verged on futuristic. 

Beefing-up brows has become so ingrained in our make-up routine we think nothing of having them permanently tattooed on our faces to save time. Yet, Prada completely erased models’ brows with bleach during Milan Fashion Week, so it might be worth rethinking that microblading appointment and learning how to apply drawn-on eyelashes with a steady hand.
