How to Eyebrows – Getting the Perfect Arch
No other feature frames the face like a well-groomed brow; and there is both an art and a science to achieving the best look for you. Here are a few tips to help you achieve an arch that highlights your natural attributes.
1. One Arch Won’t Fit All
Whether you are doing the grooming, or you hire someone to thread, wax, tweeze or shave, be sure you know your stuff . Before having a seat in your prospective groomer’s chair, ask to see pictures of their work. Each of their looks should be unique and shaped to the face of the individual client. If you are doing the work, be sure to have a plan before getting started. Generally a high brow bone or a fuller face with larger features is deserving of a fuller brow. For a thinner face with thinner features or very little space between the brow and the eyelid, less is more.
2. Rules to Groom by
The innermost edge of your brow should line up with the outside of your nose. There should be an imaginary line extending from the highest point of the arch, through the center of your pupil and down the outside margin of your nose. Lastly there should be another imaginary line from the outermost edge of your brow to the outside edge of your nose.
3. Fill in the Blanks
Let’s face it, we’ve all drawn a blank a time or two when grooming our brows. Sephora Collection’s Eyebrow Editor is a great tool for evening out and filling in the brows. Also try using a brow gel to keep the hairs in place. When applying, allow 30 seconds for the gel to dry. Then using light wispy strokes, fill in your brows from the inside edge to the outermost corner. Voila, this bit of brow magic will define your face and bring your beauty to the forefront.
