Brows can truly give your face such simple definition. One to-do make up thing for me is to get my eyebrows shaped. If I am in a hurry, I feel confident in having gloss, mascara and well-groomed eyebrows. Here’s some tips on how to have the best shape for yours:
For rounder faces like Rachel Bilson:
It’s best to keep brows on the full side, and keep the ‘tail’ on the shorter side. Too long a brow will only accentuate the width of your face, and too short will make your face look wider, so start by gently plucking the ‘tail’ end. The higher the arch the better, and you can cheat this look with a sweep of brow powder, such as Vanitymark’s Ultra Brow Powder.
For rectangle faces like Blake Lively:
The key here is to soften angles. Full brows will make your face will look too squared off; too thin and you’ll be giving too much ‘face.’ Keep the brows tidy, but defined. Make sure you have a well shaped ‘tail’ to anchor the eyes and balance a strong jaw line. Keep that arch high to add roundness and femininity. You can help tame unruly brows with a light brow glaze or gel.
For long/thin faces like Kristen Stewart:
Delicate features dictate delicate brows. The most common mistake is making the brows too thin which gives the face a weak, low-watt look. Keep the brow on the subtle side by making sure they are not too dark. Use a lighter, pencil to powder fill in, such as Vanitymark’s Ultra Brow Pencil fill, so the hairs are darker than the shade you are enhancing them with. If your brow hairs are ample, keep them trimmed to tone down ‘girth’, using small scissors.
For bold features like Camilla Belle:
Large eyes, strong cheekbones, prominent nose or all of the above? You definitely want to make sure brows pack impact, too. Go bold with your shape by creating high arch using tweezers and a brow pencil for shape. Be care not to tweeze too short or too thin. You want a fuller brow to balance. Definition is your friend when you want to highlight front row, exotic features.
