Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features. It can affect the appearance of face to a large extent. The best part about eyebrows is that we can change their shape according to our face and latest trends. However the liberty to alter the eyebrow shapes does come with a handbook of rules. According to Joey Healy, the eyebrow specialist, first of all, the head of the brow should start at the bridge of nose. If you hold a pencil up to either side of your brow, you will find this point. Secondly, the arch of the eyebrows should be two-thirds of the way out. Arching the eyebrow at the centre gives it a rainbow shape which is a big no.
Thirdly, eyebrows should never be cut short. The tail should end on an imaginary line from eye’s corner to the nose’s corner. However the tail can be extended but should not be lowered. He suggests not to use magnifying mirror while doing your own brows as this will make the person lose perspective and it could result in over done eyebrows. Healy also shares that eyebrows should be on the brow bone. Shaping an eyebrow according to face shape means playing against the angles of the face. A rounder face would need a straighter brow, while a super angular face would require a softer, rounder brow.
