I am unabashedly obsessed with eyebrows. They are always the first thing I notice when I meet people, and I appreciate someone with a strong Cara Delevingne brow. Therefore, naturally, I am also obsessed with Zendaya and her brows alike. If her eyebrows had a zip code I would live there, but alas they do not. So, the next best thing is to just try to copy her in every way possible.
I’ve always been incredibly picky about the shape and fullness of my brows, so much so, that I cried when I said goodbye to my eyebrow esthetician in LA and moved to New York. Eyebrows make or break a lewk, which Zendaya knows first-hand. Below we’ve broken down how to get the perfect brows, and get ready for your close-up (or just a good insta-selfie):
I like full brows, you like full brows, we all like full brows. We are huge advocates of touching your brows as little as possible. The Zendaya brow is full and thick, and you’re not going to achieve that through frequent tweezing.
Full and thick is one thing, but a unibrow is quite another. There are two ways you can maintain a clean look—having a professional do the deed, or DIY, obv. If you’re seeing a professional, we recommend getting your eyebrows threaded rather than waxed. Waxing can cause breakouts or burns and redness. Bring a photo of Zendaya for inspo, your girl will know what to do.
If you’re going to DIY, follow these tips below:
Filling in brows and defining them to perfection is the final touch to achieving this look. We recommend using a great eyebrow pencil and brush like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Using the brush, comb your hairs up and then over to the right, arching them into your ideal shape. Then, grab the pencil side and begin by filling in any lighter patchy spots in light, short strokes to mimic hair growth.
No true Zendaya brow is complete without the ultimate highlighter glow. Grab your Haloscope highlighter and run it lightly along your brow bone to really make them pop.
