Golden Globes Beauty: Red Carpet Brow Wow

Emma Stone, Taylor Schilling and Emily Blunt are proof that luscious arches aren't going anywhere

Bold brows are here to stay, it seems, as demonstrated by Keira Knightley, Lorde and Taylor Schilling, who were among the handful of stars sporting thick face-framers on the Golden Globes red carpet.

"[Strong brows] are something we love for [Taylor Schilling], because she naturally has them," says makeup maven Tina Turnbow, who accentuated the Orange is the New Black star's striking features using NARS' Brow Gel and Brow Perfector. "The look frames her eyes so beautifully, I think and gives balance to the face. I didn't extend the brows — that's what keeps it more modern too. I love taking what someone has naturally and playing with that."

Meanwhile, eyebrow guru Kristie Streicher crafted her signature brows for Into The Woods actress Emily Blunt, whose arches popped against her minimal makeup look (created by Streicher's sister Jenn, no less). Using a darker custom color on the brow tail and ends, Streicher then combed it through to balance the brows out. Next, she tweezed all of the fine, blonde "downy" hairs on the underside of the best actress nominee's brows. To complete the look, Streicher brushed hairs up with a strong-hold brow gel to lift hairs — which softens the eyebrow lines and creates a feathered look.

Chanel artist Rachel Goodwin also followed suit, giving Emma Stone an on-trend brow to match her sparkly jumpsuit. "I filled in her eyebrows with Chanel's Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil and combed her brows up with gel," explains Goodwin. "I wanted her brows to frame the eyes and to appear slightly thicker."
