After taking over the eyelids of models and fashionistas for the last few months, glitter has moved up to decorate another important area of the face: the eyebrows. The trend was first spotted on the runway at Giambattista Valli's Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2016/17 show in London, where models paraded down the runway with a line of glitter directly underneath their brows. Stars like Frieda Pinto have even adopted the glittery look underneath their brows for red carpet events, showing us that we too, can integrate this bold trend into our day-to-day routines.

GLITTER BROWS: HOW TO ADOPT THE LOOK IN REAL LIFE
Supermodel Gigi Hadid made beauty headlines when she first paraded down the runway at Giambattista Valli's Autumn/Winter 2016/17 show with a line of silver glitter underneath both brows. Apart from a small touch of illuminator on the inner corners of her eyes, her lids were free of makeup, paving the way for bold brows to take centre stage. As for her complexion, it was perfectly matte which created a stark contrast when layered with sequins.
In London, the fashion house Fashion Scout took the trend to a whole new level by pairing it with a dewy complexion and pink shadow around the eye. Models lips were coated with everything from red to pale pink lipstick and gloss to complete the look. Keep this bold look in mind when hitting up your next music festival where anything goes!
FREIDA PINTO'S GLITTER BROWS
At this year's Manus x Machina Met Gala, L'Oreal Paris muse Freida Pinto took on the night's futuristic theme by completing her makeup look with a line of gold sequins drawn underneath her well-defined brows. Her lids were smoky with gold and brown shadow, and her tan helped to give the sequins underneath her brows a subtle appearance. Along with her tan, a soft shade of gold and thin line made the look appropriate enough to adopt for everyday life.
RECREATE THE LOOK
To achieve this look, follow the steps below:
Step 1: After having unified your skin with your favourite foundation, tackle your brows with a brow pencil or gel. Start off by drawing them in with a pencil, then use a gel formula to fill in the rest of your brows in an up and outward motion.
Step 2: After getting your hands on a shimmery eyeshadow colour of choice, moisten an angled brush with water, then dip it into the formula – metallic silvers and golds are subtler way of wearing this look for everyday. Directly underneath your brows, draw a line that follows the shape of your brow with the shadow. Start from the inner corner and move towards the outer corner for the perfect look.
Step 3: Complete your look with a coat of volumizing mascara and a hint of nude lipstick.
