Since platinum hair became a thing, it seems that most of the best bottle blondes have decided against lightened brows in favor of a darker, bolder eye frame. Even the definitive brows of the moment, propped up by Ms. Delevingne, are kept brunette despite her not-so-brunette hair. After all, isn't the consensus that the deeper and fuller your brow, the younger you look? But what of the raven-haired ladies in search of a little contrast? Try subduing your brows with a blonde eyebrow pencil, gel, or pot. It’s a small, fresh change that can take a little weight out of your smoky eye, soften a dark lip look (Rooney Mara [4-5]), or just keep you out of the dreaded brow rut.
