FOTD: Bleached Brows (no bleach required)

Some years back Gwen Stefani bleached her brows and it was tragic! Fast forward to the numerous Runway's & Editorial spreads donning the look and it's still hideous but sooo high fashion. I wanted to refresh my technique on this in demand trend. Not being a model, it looks even more ridiculous on me, but I just love doing transformational "ugly" looks.

I wouldn't recommend bleaching your brows this light, it's just not something that works well for everyday. To get a similar effect run a light concealer through them with a spoolie, it'll lighten them up with out the commitment. I chose the airbrush method for mine using the Dinair Airbrush System. First blanking them out with Dinair matte white, then going in with a skin tone foundation (Dinair Vanilla) to bring a touch of color back in to them. No bleach required.
Hair & makeup was inspired by Francois Nars for Marc Jacobs Spring 2011. Instead of using vaseline, which gets creasy quick, I foiled mettalic green pigments by Lumiere over a black base for depth.
