Boyish Brows Will Be Big For Fall, So Take Note (PHOTOS)

Thank goodness I gave up eyebrow threading because, boyish brows are in.

Makeup artists at New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 shows, including Tadashi Shoji, Jason Wu and Costello Tagliapietra, used a "feathering" technique and dark eyeshadow to enhance the models' brows. The finish was definitely bushy and bold.

Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal for Jason Wu told us that using an eyeshadow that's closest to your natural eyebrow color is the trick to perfecting boyish brows.

"You don't want to make them too dark. You brush [your brows] first and start filling them in. I like to start from the inner corners and then fill out the ends to get that straightness," she explained.

Lisa Houghton, the key makeup artist at Tadashi Shoji, said that eyeshadow creates "a much softer effect" as opposed to harsh brow pencils.

So cancel your brow appointment and take a cue from the boys.
