Understanding Your Facial Structure
In order to start getting your ideal eyebrows, it’s key to understand what your face shape is. Brows frame your face so the shape of your face will dictate which eyebrow shapes are best for you.
Once you know your face shape, you’ll be able to use the golden ratio to get your brow shape. Now, that sounds complicated but we promise it’s not!
When you’re learning how to shape eyebrows, you will use three lines. These lines don’t need to be drawn on your face fully. Instead, use a brush to make the lines and mark to points with some liner.
The first line will come up from your nostril up to your forehead. This line will give you where the front of your brow should start. Mark that point with a light line of eyeliner.
The second line will go from the tip of your nose and over the iris. This line will show you where to begin your brow’s arch. It’s easiest to mark this point with a small dot.
The third and final line will go from the corner of your nose to the outer corner of the eye. Once you have that point marked off, you will know where the tail of your brow should end.
Remember, this can (and should!) be adapted for your face shape. If you’re finding that you’d prefer more lift on a round face, try raising your arch. Another technique is to widen the face by bringing the tail out further.
Knowing your perfect eyebrow shape will come with time and practice!
Filling or Plucking
Depending on your brows, your golden ratio may require either filling or plucking. If your brows are more sparse, use your favorite brow product to fill in with those points. Those of us with fuller brows will likely need to do some plucking.
You can definitely do this plucking on your own. However, eyebrows threading is a good way to have some professional help. Your specialist will use the golden ratio to give you your shape.
It’s recommended to go to a professional for your first time grooming your brows. This way, you know you’re in good hands. Plus, you’ll know the shape your brows look best in!
Also, eyebrow threading shapes aren’t just for women. These days, more and more men are getting threading done as well. Eyebrow shapes for men will follow the same process as for women.
Your Perfect Eyebrow Shape
Having an eyebrow shape that suits your face will raise your confidence. When you have your eyebrows in the best possible shape, it will make your face look lifted.
