The famous makeup artist was also responsible for Meghan’s makeup and eyebrows for her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018. Here are his tips:
Think natural: Treat your eyebrows “as sisters not twins,” he said. In short, stop aiming for perfect symmetry.
Don’t over tweeze: “One mistake a lot of people make is over tweezing or over plucking your brows,” Martin explained. Leave the thin brows of the ‘90s where they belong—last century. In fact, even Meghan’s brows have evolved over time and she now wears them a bit fuller.
Fill in imperfections: “As we age we tend to lose our eyebrows a bit. So what we want to do, is we want to enhance her brow and really figure out that structure, really figure out those holes and spots that we lost,” the makeup artist said. The trick to this is keeping a brow gel handy to brush against the hair growth to give them a fuller appearance.
Use makeup to structure: Meghan’s makeup artist recommends using a neutral eyeshadow palette to apply a light shade below the brow.
24 hour brows: Martin recommends setting the look by applying hairspray with a mascara wand.
This simple guide straight from the professional charged with Meghan Markle’s brows is the key to achieving and maintaining your best possible brows and putting your best face forward.
