Anyone who knows me knows that I am a little bit brow obsessed. What can I say? Eyebrows are so important – I mean, science tells us so. Our eyebrows not only frame our face, but they act as a filter that blocks dust, dirt, and sweat. According to Yahoo! Health, our brows are also important for “emotional expression as well as facial recognition.” It’s no surprise, then, that changing your brows can totally change your look – for better or for worse.
If you were a teen in the early 2000’s like I was, you may have fallen victim to over-tweezing. If that’s the case, have no fear – there is hope for you yet. I highly recommend taking the time to learn how to map your eyebrows. And what do you know?! It’s your lucky day, because that’s what today’s post is all about – creating the perfect brow. Read through the steps below, and if you need a little more direction or you are a visual learner, take a look at the video in this post, as well!
Products Used: e.l.f. angled brush and BrowSense by Senegence (can also use Wunderbrow)
Step One: Take your angled brush and align it with the inner corner of your eye and your nostril. The brush should be straight up and down. Mark this spot – this is where you want your eyebrow to begin.
Step Two: Take your angled brush and, starting at your nostril, line it up with your pupil while staring straight ahead. The place it intersects with your eyebrow is where the highest point of your arch should be. Mark this spot.
Step Three: Take your angled brush and, starting at your nostril, line it up with the outer corner of your eye. The place it intersects with your eyebrow is where you want your eyebrow to end.
Step Four: Connect the dots by outlining your brow in this shape and filling it in. I start by lining the bottom and filling in, then lining the top and filling in. I’ve found that a pretty universally “good” thickness is the size of this angled brush.
