If you haven’t heard the name Billie Eilish before, we completely understand. The up-and-coming artist has a Gen Z fanbase, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she becomes a household name soon. Especially with those eyebrows.
The 17-year-old singer first found fame when she uploaded her song Ocean Eyes on SoundCloud in 2014. Often collaborating with brother Finneas O’Connell (Glee, Modern Family), Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell easily appeals to younger audiences with her well-written, indie electropop music.
Billie has collaborated with artists like Khalid, as well as lent her songs Bored and Lovely to the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack. She’s also one of the youngest artists to perform at the popular (albeit controversial) music festival Coachella.
Her latest album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” came out to mostly positive reviews. Rolling Stone described it as “dressed-down avant-pop with D.I.Y. immediacy and intimacy that cans till hold its own amid Top 40 maximalists like Ariana Grande and Halsey.”
On top of her haunting vocals and catchy music, Billie’s blue hair and beautiful brows make her an icon-in-the-making.
Bustle spoke with Billie’s makeup artist, Robert Rumsey, who said that Billie has naturally flawless eyebrows. These arches don’t give Rumsey a difficult time, as he only has to make “minimal, precise” changes.
“I draw in a few hairs with Benefit’s Precisely, My Brow eyebrow pencil,” he said. “It has the perfect amount of firmness and pigment, and I know it won’t move. Then I brush the hairs up with 2-Hr Brow Setter in Clear. It holds so well without leaving a film on the hairs.”
Get Billie Eilish’s eyebrows and makeup look
Whether or not you have naturally gorgeous brows like Billie’s, Rumsey’s brow advice rings true:
“Draw the hairs in the direction of the natural growth. It’s more modern than filling in the entire brow,” he said.
This technique also prevents the brows from looking opaque; Rumsey is a fan of being able to see brow’s actual hairs.
Billie’s go-to look is a no-makeup makeup look. According to Rumsey, it’s about evening out the skin.
“You don’t need a ton of products,” he said. “A good foundation and concealer. I prefer buildable products. I like translucent loose powder for the T-zone and cream highlighters that aren’t sticky.”
Less is definitely more
With natural beauty the trend to watch, it makes sense to have Billie Eilish as a beauty icon.
The singer’s less-is-more approach allows for more emphasis on her striking features, like her brows, eyes, and hair.
