January 15, 2013 | Beauty | 1 Comment

Eyebrows can make or break your entire look. They can make your eyes look droopy when they’re not, or make you look angry when, in fact, you’re not. This is why it’s essential to be very cautious when grooming your own brows. There is a very fine line between a perfectly shaped brow and an overly tweezed brow. One or two plucks too many can leave you with a pretty scary shape. So here are some tips for perfectly shaped brows on all face types.


Tips for Perfect Eyebrows

Defining the shape

Whether your eyebrows are bushy or thin, here’s a rule that everybody must follow.

Define your brows following these guide lines.

Place a pencil on the corner of your nose:

following in a straight line to the inside corner of your eye – this is where your brow should begin.

following in a straight line to the outside corner of your eye – this is where your brow should end.

looking straight, following a line through your pupil – this is the higher point of your brow, the arch.


Face Shapes:

It’s hard to tell what’s your face shape just looking in a mirror. Our brain tricks us, we automatically change angles and your eyes see something else, other than reality. To define your face shape, make a ponytail, and take a photo. Then, trace your face with a pen, you’ll be surprise with the result.

Goal: Maintain perfection.

Solution: A soft angled eyebrow would be best to maintain the shape.

Long

Feature: Elongated feature form forehead to chin.

Goal: Make the face appear shorter.

Solution: Flat eyebrow shape. A flat brow gives the illusion of a shorter face.

Round

Feature: Face with width and length almost the same, widest at cheeks.

Goal: Make the face appear longer.

Solution: High arch eyebrow shape. Create sharp angled lines, avoid a rounded arch.

Square

Feature: Forehead, cheekbones and jawline almost the same width.

Goal: Soften the strong jawline.

Solution: Round arched eyebrow shape. Avoid harsh lines and angles.

Heart

Feature: Prominent forehead and pointy chin.

Goal: Balance the forehead/chin proportions.

Solution: Low arch, round curved brow shape. The round arch balances the pointy chin and the low position takes attention off the forehead.

Diamond

Goal: Soften the wideness of temples.

Solution: High rounded arch eyebrows will divert the attention from the temples.
