The beautiful Barbie Ferreira is one of the most inspirational young ladies on social media. We got to know her thanks to the successful modeling career and voluptuous looks. Now Barbie filmed a 5-minute beauty routine video that will “make you look like you didn’t spend way too much time at the bar last night’. Since we all need those tiny hacks from celebrities, watch the video and learn how to get that fresh-faced look without much effort.
Many women will find Babie’s first step relatable. The fierce model/actress likes to speak out loud and tell her opinion about everything. So, Barbie revealed that she starts her beauty routine by removing her mustache. A lot of ladies don’t feel comfortable to speak about unwanted hair. But Ferreira is not one of those influencers that are trying to present themselves as perfect.
The next step for the model is applying a primer. She uses only several drops to keep her skin fresh, hydrated and smooth. The primer will also help you to visually get rid of pores. It will fill in the irregularities and make your skin look smoother. The next thing she does is applying foundation. First, the Insta star pumps several drops on the back of her hands, before blending it with a brush. Ferreira ended up using her fingers to finish the job.
Once she’s done with the liquid foundation, she moves on to blush and cheeks. For this step, the model once again uses a brush and a liquid soft peach blush. This is a great way to naturally accent your cheekbones and very easy for everyday use. Don’t forget to add a little glow with a highlighter. The last move in perfecting the look of your skin is to set everything with a powder. Barbie keeps the eye makeup very simple and natural. Her essential products are a white eyeliner for the inner lash line and an eyelash curler.
One of the biggest hacks we learned from Barbie is her super-innovative way of getting her brows on point. The eyebrows are the feature that accents your face, especially if you have thick ones that stand out. She uses an old mascara and goes through her brows with the brush. For when she wants a more toned-down look, Ferreira has a clean wand to just brush her eyebrows. This is such an easy and inexpensive trick for ladies with darker brows. Always finish off with a good lip stain for a touch of glam on your lips.
MAC is offering the tools for perfect, well-sculpted brows and excitement is mounting.

Because the tip is chisel shaped you can use it flat to fill for a fuller and more natural look or use the sharper end for the well-defined precision of a well arched brow.

When the fame of Cara Delevingne reached its top, almost every girl wanted to resemble her dramatic look with dark bushy eyebrows, and it was exactly when the trend of filling in eyebrows came to fashion. However, changing the look of the eyebrows didn’t stop here, as exactly last spring Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga decided to present the opposite trend, bleaching their eyebrows to almost invisibility. Apparently, the idea appealed to many fashionisers and makeup artists, the result of which was quite noteworthy bleached eyebrow looks spotted at the fall 2014 fashion week. Consequently, bleaching eyebrows is included among the hottest fall/ winter 2014-2015 makeup trends, and below we present some of the cool looks featuring such eyebrow styles taken straight from the catwalk!
How to Wear Bleached Eyebrows
“Erasing’ eyebrows from the face may seem a bit unusual and weird, however, when combined with the right makeup style this look can appear quite beautiful too. It’s just you need to know when to go for bleached eyebrows and when not to. Besides if you fear that maybe the new style of eyebrows won’t appeal to you, no need to go for the bleaching method, as you can reach the same effect using certain makeup products too. And any time you don’t like it, just remove the makeup and go for your natural look!
You may think that for styling perfectly beached eyebrows, you still need to trim and tweeze your brows beforehand, however, it’s not actually true. To get the ultimately expressive forms of invisible eyebrows, you just need to leave your natural brow hair grow out completely in order to give the “thick’ texture to your brows.
Perhaps one of the most unique and festival-ready ways of wearing bleached eyebrows was demonstrated by Emilio Pucci, at the show of which models resembled forest fairies, wearing completely nude makeup looks with lots of golden loose powder used for emphasizing not only the eyebrows but also some part of the forehead reaching the brow line. This look certainly isn’t the best option for everyday wear, however, for some party nights you can go for it.
Similar haunted look was spotted at Alexander McQueen, when the models walked down the catwalk wearing awe-inspiring bold makeup with the main emphasis put on the eyes and brows. The skin was left nude and bare along with the lips, while the eyes were highlighted with a blend of brown and golden hues and the eyebrows were bleached to invisibility, looking so perfect with this makeup style. Generally when bleaching your eyebrows, make sure to pick the most matching makeup style for this look, either leaving your entire face nude for a more innocent effect or highlighting some part of your face only, be that the eyes or the lips. Bleached blond eyebrows look especially amazing in combination with matte translucent skin and some metallic makeup shades.
Most blondes are lucky in respect of this new beauty trend, as they are granted with bleached eyebrows by nature and now instead of filling them in and emphasizing them, they simply can go out bare faced and still look trendy and cool. Bleached eyebrows also flatter those girls, who have dyed their hair into the blonde shade, since invisible eyebrows look harmonious with the blonde hair color. This is what we could see at Peter Som or Costume National, when the models wore platinum blonde hair harmonized with the bleached brows.
On the other hand, those with darker hair shades aren’t encouraged to experiment with this beauty trend, as the big contrast between the hair color and the bleached brows may look a bit weird and definitely unnatural. Still, those It girls, who are self-confident and bold enough can go for such a look, as we saw it at Alexander Wang, for instance, when the dark hair color of the models created such a dramatic effect being combined with the bleached brows.
As for the perfect hairstyle you can wear with bleached eyebrows, there are absolutely no restrictions here. You can try a sleek ponytail as in the case of Givenchy, or go for a straight bob cut, as Marc Jacobs showed it. The side-parted wet effect ponytail of Jonathan Saunders looked totally dramatic and futuristic with the bleached brows.
Whether you still give preference to bushy brows or want to try the new beauty trend of bleaching eyebrows, you are always welcome to experiment with various styles of beauty trends and change your looks from time to time for fresh and memorable appearances of yours. Temporary “bleaching’ done with the help of makeup products is perhaps the best option to this end, since you can easily switch to your natural looks any time you get tired of the new trend!

Don’t Miss: How To Dye Brows And Eyelashes
Harmony is one of the primary factors of a woman’s successful looks. If everything is in harmony, then the totally impeccable looks are guaranteed. Thus, if we say flawless harmony we first of all mean the harmony of all the major and minor elements composing a look in general. And such parts as the brows and the eyelashes are some of the most crucial details for the beauty of the face. That’s why we are going to provide you with some basic beauty tips and tricks about how to dye brows and eyelashes in order to complete your ideal looks and not have them irrevocably altered or misstyled. So here we go with the step-by-step instructions!
Step 1: First of all you need to find out the state of your brows and your lashes and to make sure they are healthy enough for the new processes and applications. They shouldn’t be damaged, weak, etc. This is a must not only because of the fact that the dyeing process will make them even weaker, but also because the color simply won’t stay on them as long as expected and will fall off quite shortly after the application. So it’s important to start with some strengthening treatments and options for growth stimulation before passing to the dyeing proper (Check out: How to Make Eyelashes Grow Naturally).
Step 2: The next step of yours should be the careful scrutiny of the instructions and the descriptions given with the product. It should have been necessarily subjected to dermatological tests and should absolutely correspond to all of the standards existing. Despite the fact that the formulae of the dyeing products for brows and lashes differ from that of the options for hair, still picking the not corresponding types for your skin may cause problems, like inflammations and allergic reactions.
Step 3: Choose the tones of the brows and the lashes wisely. This is also critical for the successful outcomes and you need to be really careful and cautious when picking the colors that suit you. Thus, you need to make the brows a tone darker than your hair and the lashes a tone darker than the brows. This is the key for the most natural and beautiful looks. Some really catchy combinations may be created with the help of matching light tones of hair with much darker tones of brows. Another super attractive yet a bit risky combination may be created with the help of picking some reddish shades for the brows if there are any in the color plays of your hair. However, in case you’d rather avoid such risky choices, you may adhere to shades like brown and darker tones like black. In addition, if you accidentally made your brows darker than you wanted, you can also lighten them using the products almost all of the retailers of dyeing products provide you with.
Step 4: It is not recommended carrying out procedures like dyeing right after waxing the brows. Your skin is uber-sensitive then and the color may get into the open pores and micro pores and cause infections.
Step 5: Don’t follow the general and traditional recipes to dye your brows and lashes. Rather look and study carefully the instructions given on the package and try to find the exact shape that you need taking into account that the shade you get as a result of mixing the paint with water is going to acquire a darker hue after the application. The time required waiting after the application is 10 minutes for the lashes and 3-6 for the brows on average.
Step 6: Post-application procedures that come right after are generally meant to preserve the shade as long as possible. On average one dyeing procedure is enough for some 3-4 months. The colors fade away gradually and to prolong this process you need to keep the contacts with cleaning means and products as minimal as possible. Of course, this doesn’t mean you will have to cut down on using treatments for the brows and the lashes. You can still use the strengthening ones and those providing some stimulation for their growth. For instance, using castor oil is a great way of making them stronger and healthier and for gifting them with a natural glow.
So just try to follow these steps as much as possible and the results will really surprise you coming as the ideally dyed eyebrows and eyelashes. Just give them a try!

Achieving perfect looks especially in terms of perfecting the face may sometimes be a hard and challenging task to do. And if we speak about the face, there is a number of details that you need to pay attention to, since every nuance and every single elements matters here and is meant to define your look. Eyebrows are some of the most significant and essential details that are meant to perfect your face and make it ideal. However, in search of the ideal form of eyebrows, we sometimes erroneously opt for the dramatically thin looks, which happen to be not that suitable for our features. And a necessity to grow out the eyebrows arises, which is just as challenging as finding the ideal type. There are, however, several tips that might help you in quickly growing out your eyebrows and now we are going to present some basic and essential ones.
First of all you need to cancel all the regular visits to the waxer. This requires a lot of patience and will, since after a couple of weeks it will be really hard for you to resist the temptation of cleaning out all those growing hairs, making you look hairy as never! Still, you need to resist the temptation as long as you can in order to get them grow thoroughly. When they are almost ready and you are preparing for the final shaping, you may use products like concealers and pencils to hide away the parts you don’t want to make visible, before the shaping will do the job.
Nevertheless, there are some other problems that you happen to face too. One of the most significant in this respect is the hair loss, which might eventually affect your eyebrows as you get older, too. And if you are facing the problem, products like serum might help you stimulate the growth and the strengthening of the eyebrows. In case your brow hair still rejects growing back, you can always turn to the modern technology of transplanting eyebrows!
Finally, when you are almost done (the period of which varies from person to person) you may visit the threader or the waxer for some general corrections before the final shaping. Eyebrow kits are the true best friends of yours while getting the final touches done, like when filling in the brows to make them look more luxurious.
So these were the most important things you need to know about growing out eyebrows and in case you are facing this kind of challenge, they might be very useful for you.

Eyebrow Filling Tutorial
To have perfectly contoured brows, you’ll need:
• A spooley brush
• A synthetic angled brush
• Tinted brow gel
And the steps are as follows!
Step 1: Brush your eyebrows using a spooley brush. Starting from the middle of your brows start contouring the lower part. For this it’s advised to use a synthetic angled brush and a tinted brow gel (Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate).
It’s vital to choose the correct color of the eyebrow fillers you are going to use, one that will look close to your natural brow shade. Otherwise the brows would look unnatural and unflattering. Keep in mind to never use black gels and black eye pencils for contouring the brows!
Step 2: Repeat the same steps on the upper part of your brows. If you don’t have naturally strong brows, draw the brow shape you like most and that flatters your face shape best of all. Now, fill in the contour you have drawn.
Step 3: With the product left on the brush start contouring and filling in the first part of your brows. In this way, you’ll create a nice ombre effect that looks much more natural.
Step 4: If you are pleased with the shape of your brows, use the tinted gel to fix the hair of the brows.
Important Tips to Take Into Account
Always remember that the beginning part of your brow must be thicker than the tail. Besides, this part should slightly differ in color, being lighter than the tail. You can fill in your brows using brow gel, wax, eye shadow or eye pencil.
As you see, it’s quite easy to fill in eyebrows and get the perfect brow shape you have always dreamt of! Follow the steps and practice at home for a flawless result!
