How To Hide Those Pesky Brows For Halloween

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I really do. But we can't all naturally have eyebrows like Cara Delevingne. I know, I know, I'm slowly coming to terms with that too. But something we all can have is no eyebrows. Wait, wait; hear me out. By concealing your eyebrows, the makeup possibilities are endless. Any type of brow, anywhere on the forehead, instantly becomes attainable. So whether you want to look (semi) permanently puzzled or angry or just surprised, you can easily, temporarily erase your eyebrows to pencil in the ones of your dreams. Or, you know, the ones that will go best with your Halloween costume and makeup.

I don't always conceal my eyebrows, but when I do, it's for a badass costume. Once you take your natural eyebrows off the map (of your face), the expressions and characters you can portray become endless. Case in point: any Disney or otherwise animated character ever. Disney characters become so much easier to pull off when you can mimic their larger eyes and higher-placed brows. And the best way to do this is by covering up your own. It's easier than you might think. Here's how to get the no-brow look:

First, comb your brows up and over using a spoolie brush. Groomed brows will stick to the skin in a nicer and more orderly fashion.


Using a washable glue-stick, glue those puppies down. Make sure to slick every hair against your face. Don't worry — this will easily wash off using soap and water when you're done.


Set the glue with a loose powder. This will ensure that there is no sticky residue.


Apply generous amounts of concealer over your eyebrows. Finish by applying your foundation including over your eyebrows again. The darker your eyebrows are, the more concealer this will take; but don't worry if some of your eyebrow is still showing through. Once the rest of your eye makeup is done, nobody will be the wiser.
