Bleached blonde eyebrows have been stalking editorials and the catwalk for a while now. I saw a lot of the peroxide light micro beauty trend on spring summer 2010 runways. At the Bottega Veneta spring summer 2010 show models of varying ethnic backgrounds rcoked the look in conjunction with plum lips and pulled back hair. Everyone from blue eyed Russian Sasha Pivovarova, Austrian brunette Iris Strubegger, stunning Chinese Liu Wen to African American model Chanel Iman had bleached eyebrows.
Off the catwalk, the likes of Australian model Kate Peck have been seen rocking the peroxide eyebrow. She was photographed by street style photographer Hanneli Mustaparta late last year with light bleached eyebrows as seen here.
I think the blonde brow really suits Peck.
Years ago I used to lighten my brows. Not to a light blonde but a honeyed dark brown shade. I found that it looked great with short hair and it opened up my eyes and face a bit more.
Personally I like the micro beauty trend and think that with most things it is all about the how it is done. It is not a case of one shade suits all. If done professionally with a hue that suits the specific complexion in question, it can work.
On the other side of the fence… Get the shade wrong in comparison to your complexion and you could either look a tad extra terrestrial or like you have had an accident with the Barbeque.
Enough of what I think though as it is your thoughts that count! Is the bleached blonde brow in your book a do or a don’t?
