Spending a little extra time fixing your brows can add glamour and contour on your face. Whether you have thick or thin brows, simple tricks like tweezing and filling out can help you achieve the look you desire.
For practical reasons, you should seek a salon professional to shape your brows. If you wish to do it on your own, do so after you have figured out what shape is best for you. Just remember to pull out one hair at a time and pause when you are using the tweezer. When filling, choose an ideal shade of eyebrow pencil to compliment your complexion and brow hair color and fill through gentle, patient strokes until you have perfected the art.
For your inspiration, we are featuring best celebrity eyebrow styles compilation from shoppinglifestyle.com. One or two can actually compliment the shape of your face and could be your signature brows.
Camilla Belle has arches that are luscious and excellently shaped with precise filling to achieve a definition. To duplicate this, you can fake lusher brows by taking an eyebrow pencil and drawing fine hair-like strokes in sparse areas.
Beauty professionals agree that you have perfect brows when your arches are perfectly angled. Kim Kardashian has brows that are full with just the right arch. To achieve this, find your proportion by taking a pencil and lining it up with the tip of the nose and the center of your iris. The point where it hits the eyebrow is where the arch should be positioned.
One cannot ignore the gorgeous brows of Natalie Portman. Her naturally straight brows accent her eyes with just the slight bend. Apparently, her stylist just cleans it up to enhance her natural brow shape.
Full brows that are natural rather than filled can be quite an asset too. Keira knightley flaunts hers by just keeping it well groomed. She touches her brows only to tame stray hairs and she never over-tweezes, plucking one hair at a time only.
For a dramatic look as sported by Megan Fox, her well defined dark brows compliment her eyes. The slight curve of the arch gives the illusion of opening up the eyes, a beauty statement that has become her signature.
And only Charlize Theron can succeed with skinny eyebrows. Others say thin brows make you look older but Charlize’s graceful arch hitting just outside the iris and curving out to a thinner tail just adds more character to her already beautiful face.
From lips to brows, Angeline Jolie is an icon. With perfect symmetry, her brows are sculpted to lift her face. To get symmetrical brows at home, you can use eyebrow pencil to fill in brows or use it as a guide before you pull out hairs using a tweezer.
Naturally beautiful brows without looking too ‘done’ keep Selena Gomez look effortlessly youthful. To do this, only tweeze strays underneath your brows and never touch hairs between your eyes and on top of your brows. Then fill in with brow powder to give you a softer definition.
High curve without a sharp peak is what Beyoncé prefers. Luckily, she has a natural shape that she only does grooming to keep it nicely kept.
Elegant mid-sized arches that are not too thin and not too bold are what Rihanna find elegant and best compliment her eyes. As she always changes her hair color, Rihanna’s stylist also updates her brows by using tinted brow gel or brow pencil to lighten or darken her brows.
