Eyebrows help frame one’s face and when done right, they can help elevate your features. Whether you're a fan of a natural look or want to make a statement, get ready to slay the brow game with these 6 eyebrow trends in 2023. While wavy brows and bleached brows might look cool on the runway, we’ve zoomed in on those that are wearable in the everyday and are especially flattering on Asian features.


1. Soft, feathered brows

If you're someone who’d like to embrace a less “manicured” look, feathered brows will be right up your alley. This trend involves using a spoolie to brush your eyebrow hairs upward, before filling in any sparse areas with a brow pencil or powder. The result is a soft, feathery look that complements any face shape.

Tip: If your brows don’t stay put, lightly apply some brow gel before drawing them in.

2. Ombré brows with a subtle gradient

Ombré brows, as their name suggests, are all about creating a gradient effect for a subtle, blended effect that won’t come on overly strong. To achieve this, use a lighter shade of eyebrow pencil or powder on the inner corners of your brows, and gradually darken it as you move toward the tail end.

You can either use two complementary shades for this, or just rely on a single product, building up the layers as you go along from one end to the other.

3. Coloured brows in ashy or pastel hues

Try coloured brows if you’re feeling a bit more daring! Simply get a coloured brow gel, brow powder, or mascara for a pop of colour that’ll brighten up your entire face. Start off with ash-toned hues like auburn and taupe if you’re new to the trend - those are pretty foolproof on Asian features. If you wear coloured contacts often or have dyed hair, you can also pick a shade that matches or complements that.

Alternatively, go for a full-out contrast with something more vivid. While not everyone can pull off colours like neon blue or green, pastel feminine hues of pink and purple work well on ladies to bring about a fun and youthful Harajuku-esque look. You’re probably not going to find brow gels in such colours on the market, but eyeshadow or coloured mascara - like the ones from Korean beauty brand hince - would work just fine.


4. Straight Korean-style brows for a more youthful appearance

Straight brows are especially popular among Koreans, as they give the illusion of a more innocent and thus younger appearance. To DIY this look, comb your eyebrows upwards, then trim any hairs that fall above the top of your brow line. Then, use a brow pencil, crayon, or powder to even out any arches on your lower brow line, before filling in any sparseness in the middle.

5. Semi-permanent eyebrow tints

Eyebrow tints are a popular semi-permanent fix for sparse Asian eyebrows, and are created using a brow tint or dye that often lasts between 4 to 6 weeks. While they might look a tad intense in the first couple of days, this gradually fades to a subtle stain, looking more natural over time. This is a great low-maintenance alternative to drawing your brows on a daily basis - you can literally wake up with strong brow game and say, “I woke up like this”.

Plenty of beauty salons offer brow tinting services, but you can also get your own eyebrow tinting kits from places like Watsons and Sephora. The DIY options usually last for a shorter period of time - from a day or two to a week.

6. Brow microblading aka eyebrow embroidery

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that has recently gained popularity in Singapore. Basically a form of eyebrow embroidery, this is done using a handheld tool tiny strokes in the skin that mimic the appearance of natural eyebrow hairs - a great solution for those with sparse or uneven brows. When done well, you won’t be able to tell which portions are microbladed and which are actual hairs unless you’re scrutinising up close.

Depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and general upkeep, brow microblading can last for a couple of months to 2 years.
