Lately I have become obsessed with my eyebrows or lack thereof, an obsession which guarantees eyebrow envy when I watch the shows like the Kardashians?or a film featuring Megan Fox. Eyebrows are one of the most important parts of your face and unfortunately a lot of men and women overestimate there power.? It might sound slightly corny; however your eyebrows are the ‘frame’ to the beautiful portrait that is your face!
Having the right eyebrow shape can make you look younger, lift the eye so it looks firmer, and make you look put together. Having shapely and tidy eyebrows will create the perfect frame for your entire face as well as focus attention on your eyes. For example look at the difference in Angelina Jolie features, eyebrows maintenance is a necessity! Eyebrow trends change season to season however a natural brow line is simple to achieve and frames your face the best because, as a rule, the arch you are born with is the one that is right for your face.
Here are 3 simple steps in achieving your perfect natural brow:
- Place an eyebrow pencil or thin make up brush, on a straight line from the base of your nose to your eyebrow, to determine where your brow should begin.? Mark with a white kohl liner.
- Place the brush at a slant across the center section of the eye to the outside of the pupil, to determine where the brow should arch.
- Then lay the eyebrow pencil from your nostril to the outer edge of the eye, to determine where your brow should end.? Mark with a white kohl liner.
These 3 steps will determine the basic shape of your brow, tweeze any stray hairs below the brow line and trim any bushiness. When tweezing, remember to pull the follicle in the direction of the hair growth, so you don?t end up breaking the hair.? Remember to always follow your natural brow shape and not over pluck.
