This section is all about the eyebrow shaping. This presents valuable information about how to shape eyebrows and also contains certain eyebrow shaping tips to guide you.
- To determine where your eyebrow begins, hold a thin makeup brush up and down against one nostril. Where this line ends near the brow above the nose, your brow should start from there.
- To determine where your eyebrow ends, hold the makeup brush and tilt it from the nose diagonally until the point meets the outside corner of the eye, this is where your brow should end. It should never ends below this otherwise the eyes will drag.
- If you have a natural arch, then you should work on that otherwise, hold the same makeup brush and while looking straight ahead, angle it from the nose to the pupil. Your arch generally peaks where the makeup brush meets your brow.
Controlling The Eyebrows: 1. With the help of an eyebrow brush, comb the brows straight up.
2. Now check for any long hairs. If there are any, then cut them with the help of scissors.
3. Now with the eyebrow brush, brush the brows downwards and again check if there are any long hairs left.
4. If the hair seems to be too long, then cut them off with the help of scissors.
5. Now continue brushing and snipping until the brows seem to be perfect.
1. Thick brows: They make the eye appear smaller and closed as the stray hair grow down into the crease area of the eyelid, closing the space between the brow and the crease.
2. Too long brows: create an illusion of drooping eyes and changes the whole face imparting a sad look. The stray hairs that grow down the outer corner of the eyebrow make the eyes look older.
3. Unibrow: Stray hairs grow across the bridge of the nose making the eyes look close set and imparting a stern, angry and unpleasant look. It gives the illusion of having one eyebrow over two eyes.
4. Rounded arch: There is an excessive space from the crease to the brow. It makes the eye appear smaller and gives a quizzical or a stunned appearance to the face. It also gives an illusion of a permanent frown line.
