How To: Shaping the Perfect Eyebrow

The other day I had an opportunity to have a one-on-one with a makeup artist. Although this may sound rather shallow or as Savvy Sis and I call it, "deep as puddle", right makeup can sure make a lot of difference. If a face is compared to a painting, then properly styled eyebrow is the frame that complements the canvas. Prior, I styled and filled in according to what I perceived pleasant looking. However, I am happy to learn there is a general formula to art of brow.

General rules:
1. Beginning of brow: draw a straight line up from the edge of nose wing
2. Arch: draw a diagonal line from edge of nose wing to outer edge of iris
3. End of brow: draw a diagonal line from edge of nose wing to the outer edge of eye
4. Round face will look better with eyebrow with more pronounce arch to elongate the face
5. Longer face will look better with eyebrow with more rounded arch

I had lots of fun learning about my own eyebrow and how to shape to a more balanced face. These are the general rule but every gal's face will differ so adjust these rules to fit your need and have fun!

On the side note, I am pretty excited Anastasia Beverly Hills is sending me an eyebrow kit to test. Anastasia has long been the eye and brow expert for celebs such as Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah as well as up-and-comers like Diana Agron, Selena Gomez and Kristen Cavalari. I can't wait to try the beauty set so I can have stylish eyebrow like these gals. While I am waiting, I thought everyone will enjoy this short video about shaping the perfect brow.
