Best Practices For Eyebrows That Suit You

A while back, on a trip downtown, I stopped to get my eyebrows maintained, I had never been there before, it looked nice from the outside. Upon entering the location and indicating what treatment I wanted to do, my Ukrainian aesthetician attended to me swiftly. She proceeded to draw a series of lines on my face and decidedly shaped my eyebrows as per those lines.

Now, a few months, I decided to undertake the daunting task of recreating the same results as previously. This graph is similar to the graph that Anastasia Beverly Hills founder used on her clients when she first established herself; it’s a good general guideline for shaping your eyebrows.

Where to start: The eyebrows should line up with the inner corner of the eye. If you are trying to, for whatever reason, give the appearance of a slimmer nose you can narrow the space between the brows.

The arch: When looking straight running a line from the tip of the nose through the pupil, that is where the high point of the arch should sit.

The end: Running a straight line from the outer nostril (of the corresponding side) up towards the eyebrow, lying horizontally with the front end of the eyebrow, this is where the tail should sit. Stylistically some people like to lengthen their eyebrows to give it a sharper look.

Horizontally: The front end of the eyebrow and the tail of the eyebrow should roughly line up horizontally.

Eyebrows make such a difference in framing the face, they create a perimeter. You may not see a huge difference in these images but I find they help to draw interest to the eyes. With a really long face, they help create some horizontal lines to break up the face.
