Just as Kate Middleton had a global effect on hairstyle trends, Cara Delevingne has changed the way a lot of women think about their eyebrows with her thick, heavyset look. The question is: does her intense eyebrow shape work for a breezy summer look?
Well, yes and no...
Seeing as just about anyone with an ounce of common sense embraced fuller eyebrows (à la Cara or otherwise), a lot of you will understand that getting away with such a bold look is all about choosing the right makeup. During the summer months, this can be especially difficult as warm weather calls for lighter, more laidback beauty looks.Striking a balance
In order to pull off some hefty eyebrows on a sunny day, it's essential to keep the rest of your face looking fairly neutral. Our ideal daytime summer beauty look consists of BB or CC cream, mascara, our favourite lipstick and a loose wavy hairstyle.
For anyone less inclined towards a brave, 'barely there' look, try keeping your eye makeup minimal with mascara and a subtle stroke of black eyeliner AT MOST, going easy on the blush and keeping lip colours natural.

Like Cara in the photo above, smoky eyes, red lips and just about any other kind of intense makeup you fancy to go with your intense brows is a-okay once the day is over. We still advocate an "everything in moderation" attitude, however. Choosing between emphasising your eyes and your lips will not only avoid looking a bit on the vampy side of things, it will also save you some time when you're getting ready to go out!
Cara is all about doing as much of everything as she possibly can and she's the world's most popular model right now so she just about gets away with such an XXL party look. Just remember: some of us aren't so lucky...
