Today’s post is written by a good friend of mine who blogs over at The Glam Crush. Please read this informative tutorial post that she put together, then go over and see her blog for yourself. She blogs about beauty and fashion and does an amazing job!
Eyebrows really frame the face, they are more than 50% of our beauty.
No matter if they are arched, straight, thin or thick, to achieve the perfect eyebrows, you have to know that:
> will cause the eyebrows from not growing back!
Plucking your eyebrows to early (young age) or over plucking them for ages, will cause your eyebrows from not growing back in their natural shape.
Young girls please leave your eyebrows alone or you might regret it in a couple years!
To achieve the best looking shape for your face, you have to know that:
Whether you have naturally:
Round >eyebrows will always look perfect if you not force them to be something they are not!
God created the perfect eyebrows for everyone, the secret is to enhance your shape not forcing them to be different and that’s why a lot of people have weird looking brows.
You have straight eyebrows but want them to be a bit arched, if you can work it than do so but if you can’t don’t mess them up.
If you have naturally thin eyebrows, you can fill them in to make them look fuller and thicker but you don’t have to, my friend has naturally thin eyebrows, making them to thick looks not good on her.
Some faces really look good with naturally thin eyebrows.
Thick eyebrows makes you look younger, you can make them thinner but don’t overdo it, we saw a lot of eyebrow crimes on that!
If your hair grows down and wont stay up if you brush them, then please leave them alone.
I have some hairs growing down and I think it’s chic and I do not brush them up, I leave them as they are!
Forced arched eyebrows can make you look old and sometimes weird.
If you have asymmetrical eyebrows and you don’t know how to do your eyebrows, you have to work with what you have, my left eyebrow is higher than my right eyebow and there is nothing I can do about it (except surgery).
I saw eyebrows in the same height but one was thicker than the other and what you can do is cut/trim the one that’s thicker and make it as the other eyebrow.
In the beauty community they say eyebrows are sisters not twins!
Work with your eyebrows not against them, accept the shape you have because there is no other shape that will suit your face best than your natural shape!
Where should eyebrows start and end?
The right way, where your eyebrows should start and end is starting from the nostril, the attention is now on your nose bridge (pic 2) and that’s what makes your nose appear smaller.
Now hold your stick or pencil from the outside of your nose along the corners of your eye and there you will meet the brow tale, everything to much can be plucked and what’s to less you either let them grow back or if you naturally have less hair you can fill them in.
Starting from the outside of your nose will bring attention to the brightness of your nose and that will make your nose appear bigger, so this ”rule” is a complete fail!
Imagine women with a bright nose, plucking their eyebrows to much will make their nose appear even bigger, look at pic 3 you see this ”wide” distance between the brows, you instinctively know that there is something wrong looking about this eyebrows!
And then there is this new ”trend” I have seen women doing, eyebrows that are too close.
Most of them are victims of over plucked eyebrows and most of them plucked their eyebrows too wide from one another and now they fill this gap in but way too close.
Having natural close eyebrows or filling them in to close does not look good, it will not make your nose look smaller and it’s not framing your face.
You just bring attention to the almost becoming unibrow and we don’t want that!
You automatically know, whether they are to far or to close, it is wrong and it looks wrong!
Always remember work with your natural eyebrow shape 😉
