On the heels of the “plus-sized” controversy, ignited by photographs of Myla Dalbesio for Calvin Klein, The Daily Mail recently revealed a step-by-step guide on how-to achieve the much-coveted curve appeal of models such as Jennie Runk, Georgina Burke, Iskra Lawrence, Lauren Chan, and Sabrina Karisson. “How ‘plus size’ models are really skinny girls with padding” features British model, Katie Green, as she transforms herself from a UK size twelve to a fourteen in three easy steps. Adding padding under control garments to her thighs, behind, and bust, her physique is instantly accentuated.

EMBRACING THE BLEACHED BROW?
Appearing as a backlash to last season’s signature strong brow, the “invisibrow” has emerged in editorial and runway presentations. Recently spotted on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian (who recently posted on Instagram, #DontBeScaredOfMyBleachedBrows #ItsForAPhotoShoot), Kendall Jenner, Michelle Williams, Rita Ora, and Katy Perry, the trend is best paired with monochromatic, natural, makeup.
BU Tip: We say skip the bleach and test the trend by covering brows with a liquid concealer and then applying a light shade of brow gel or powder.
