Brow How-To Q & A with Lori Taylor Davis, Global Pro makeup artist: Start with brows or do them last? When I m doing makeup, I always trace the brows softly at first as a starting point because they help me decide on a look. Then, after I finish, I decide if I want to go bolder to work with an architectural look or leave them more natural. How do you decide on a brow that works with your makeup? I don t think your brows should compete with the rest of your face, so I won t create a bold brow when I m doing a dramatic, smoky or smudged eye. Should I amp my brows up for night? Yes, for sure. The Gloss Stick gives you that youthful sheen and depth that shows up perfectly at night.
