Perfect Eyebrows – Brow Shaping Tips

22Jul10

Anastasia Soare shapes the arches of Hollywood’s elite (think Penélope Cruz, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Richie, and Kim Kardashian). So who wins the award for most requested brows? Kardashian. “Girls come in with a picture of Kim, telling me they want their brows to look like hers,” says Soare. “But the stencil I use on her doesn’t flatter everyone.” To bring “balance and harmony” to your unique bone structure, Soare says choosing the right width, shape, and color is key—here, her tips and tricks for getting perfect eyebrows.

Through Thick and Thin

“If you have a tiny face with delicate features, thick brows can be overwhelming,” says Soare, adding that those with a low brow bone should also avoid going too full. “You want to open your eyes—if the space between the brows and the upper lashes is small, make the eyebrow thinner and more arched.”

On the other hand, if you have a higher-set brow bone, thick brows are the more flattering option (otherwise, says Soare, your visage might look disproportionate). If you divide the face into thirds, “the spaces between the hairline and the brows, brows and nose base, and nose base to the chin should be equal in length,” says Soare. Wider arches are also best for fuller faces, whose expansiveness can be magnified by thin brows.

If your face shape requires thicker brows yet over-tweezing has left your upper lids nearly barren, encourage hair growth with an over-the-counter conditioner like Soare’s Brow Enhancing Serum or RevitaBrow (prescription lash-amplifier Latisse is not yet FDA-approved for eyebrow use).
