The shape of your eyebrows is so important that it can actually change the expression of your face. Have you ever seen a woman seem permanently surprised because her eyebrows were shaped into exaggerate high arches? Most make-up artists would tell you that the eyebrows are the frames to your face, so shaping eyebrows properly is an art you really must master.
The key is to capitalize on the natural shape of your eyebrows and help it further with tweezing, trimming, and make-up . This means saying no to awful trends like shaving your entire eyebrow and drawing a new one with a pencil. In fact, any sort of over tweezing should be avoided. These days eyebrow threading and waxing services are popular; however, do consider that the eyebrow area is delicate and that a lot of tugging and pulling does not do it any favors.
To decide what the best shape for your eyebrows is, study them on the mirror. The front of each eyebrow should line up with the bridge of your nose. Any hair passed that point should be tweezed out because nobody wants to go around sporting a “unibrow.” Then draw an imaginary line from the tip of your nose to the end of your eye and go further to figure out where your eyebrow should end. Tweeze out any hairs below that point.
Once your eyebrows are the correct length, consider their natural arch. If you see one, you can tweeze out any hairs out of place. If your eyebrows are straight, then you will have to force a bit of an arch, which should be located about three quarters into the length of the eyebrow. The goal is to open up some space between the end of your eyebrow and your eye, which will give an instant lift to your face .
When you are done shaping, close any open spaces with a brow pencil or even with eye shadow (in the natural color or your eyebrows). Do not over color them; the idea is just to fill any gaps to make them look uniform. If you use pencil or shadow, you may be want to seal it all by applying transparent powder over them.
The tricks to shaping eyebrows properly can help you bring a youthful look to your face in just minutes and without any drastic measures. Take care of your brows. If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your eyebrows should definitely be the elegant frames for them.
