Why Is Your Brow Shape Important?

They frame your eyes beautifully, add balance to your face and make it look symmetrical.
They can totally change the way your face looks.
Getting them right is just as good as getting a complete makeover.
They make your face look finished with no other makeup on.
How To Find The Right Eyebrow Shape
Here are some step by step tips for finding the right eyebrow shape.
- Use a straight edged object (a pencil or orange stick works well) and hold it vertically along the side of your nose so it reaches up to where your eyebrow starts . The place where the pencil meets your eyebrow is where it should naturally start.
- Use the pencil again, look straight ahead and line up the pencil with the center of your pupil. The place where the pencil meets your eyebrow is where your arch should naturally start .
- Hold the pencil at a diagonal from the outer corner of your eye to the corner of your nose so it extends up over your eyebrow. The place where the pencil meets your eyebrow is where your brow should end naturally .
- Repeat the steps for your other eye.
