Everything is about eyebrows

4:42 AM

Good eyebrows are key of the perfect makeup. If you have not already found a shape that suits you follow this little guide.

First, you must determine shape of your face.

The easiest way to do that is to measure the length of your face with a ruler, divide the total length by 3. Measure the length from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin.

If the last number is larger than the first number, chances are you have a long face
If the last number is less than the first number, chances are you have a round face
If the last number equals the first number, chances are you have an oval face

And remember this quote:

"Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look" 
- Kevyn Aucoin 


  • Face gracefully tapers to a narrow chin
  • Forehead is wider than the chin
  • Prominent cheekbones 

If you have an oval face , you can choose the shape eyebrows which you like the most, because this shape is consider like ideal face shape.

  • Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width 
  • Face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin
Apply straight horizontal lines that stop the eye moving up and down the face. A flat brow shape accomplishes this.


  • Face is almost as wide as it is long
  • Face is widest at the cheeks
In the case of this face shape it is best to create a striking line of eyebrows. Apply lines that go more up and down the face. Create as high an arch as you can.Stay away from a rounded brow shape. This makes a round face look very round


  • The squared jawline is the most obvious feature
  • Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width
If you have a square face, eyebrows should be as flat as possible , perhaps even slightly bowed.


  • Similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point
The best eyebrow shape for a heart shaped face is rounded.

  • The forehead is somewhat short and the face is widest at the temples 
  • Typically the face is highly angular

Curves will both soften your look and make the widest portion of your face look less wide. The curved brow shape does this.

And how to start?

You need to find where brows should start. Hold tweezers vertically against the side of the bridge of your nose. Mark the spot with pencil.
Then, hold tweezers at the outer edge of your eye's iris, use the pencil to mark the highest point of arch. 
Next place tweezers at your eye's puter corner, angle them toward the temple and dot the spot. This is where your brow should end. You can use the dots like guide and fill spots. And that should be your brow shape. 

If  hairs needs trimming, sweep them up and use scissors to snip hairs that go outside of your brow shape. Tweeze hairs that fall outside the shape you made. Reapeat steps on your other brow. 

At the end, how to complete everything

Or just how to fill in the brows 

Brow Powders or powder eyeshadows in shades that closely match the color of your brow. Begin application in the center of the brow and work outward toward the brow tip then back toward the beginning of the brow. Use short, light strokes between the brow hairs. 

Eyebrow pencils are a standard way to fill in brows but many can produce a greasy, hard look or mat the brow hair, so make sure you use a pencil that has a smooth, light texture. If penciling doesn't look absolutely natural, don’t do it.

Colored eyebrow gels work well for making the most of sparse, light-colored eyebrows. These products look like mascara but they have a much lighter consistency and are less pigmented. 

And one more quote at the end:
