I won't be mentioning any products on this post but giving advice instead on how I think to best deal with your brows! Also I have some examples of good and bad eyebrows.
Scientists say that the key to facial beauty is symmetry and I ultimately agree with them, eyebrows are such an important element of your face and tend to be overlooked. As well as symmetry I think eyebrows should be NATURAL LOOKING. There is nothing natural about black, fine, drawn on eyebrows so if you're having dilemmas then keep reading.
There is a general guide to shaping your eyebrows and while everyone's face shape is slightly different this is the guide I tend to follow:
This technique is done using straight lines and the side of your nose as a starting point. The first line (furthest to the right) runs straight up from your nostril and should be where our eyebrows begin, not before and definitely not after. Starting your eyebrows after this line will make your face look fuller.
The second line, as you look straight ahead in the mirror, passes by the side of your pupil and should be the highest point of your eyebrow.
And finally, the third line touches the outer edge of your eye and is where your brow should finish.
Good and Bad examples:
|GOOD - Cara Delevingne is an eyebrow crush of mine. |
While they are dark, they frame her face perfectly and give her a distinct look
|GOOD - Kim's brows look picture perfect|
|BAD - Angelina's brows have seen better days! Too harsh!|
|BAD - Demi's unnatural looking brows|
|BAD - Lauren Conrad's brows look like a result of trigger happy tweezing!|
Luckily, I don't think everyone has to spend time perfecting their brows. If you have light hair then you may not need to touch them at all! Also, recently many models have used their unruly brows to give them a distinct and uber-natural look.
