The Starting Line: A Well Shaped Brow


Did you know the eyebrow is one of the most important features of the face? This one feature defines every other line of your face. Your brows move. They add expression.  If they are not carefully defined, you will lose definition in the entire upper portion of your face.

The line of the brow is the master line of the face; every makeup and contouring placement will be made in relation to these angles, so it is critically important that your brows be shaped correctly.  Even if you’ve never shaped your brows before or considered using brow color, now is the time to start.

According to Forever Beautiful by Rex, Rex Hilverdink, skinny, over-tweezed arches are out. The “now brow” is full, natural and well-groomed. The eyebrows are what frame the face. Your brow line is not a straight line at all, but consists of three distinct elements: an ascending angle, an arch and a descending angle.

The ideal brow adds lift to the eyes (up is young, down is old) and adjusts the width and length of the face. Making subtle adjustments in the direction of the eyebrow ending or the point at which it leaves the bridge of the nose can open up the center of the face and bring the whole face into sharper focus.   Add character to your face with the correct shape and a bit of color!
