Your eyebrows are one of your most important features — they frame your face. Getting them into the right shape is even more important than eye makeup. Without a nice pair of well-shaped and defined eyebrows, no matter how gorgeous the colours of the eyeshadows are, they will not stand out.
With the diagram below, I am going to show you, step by step, how to shape and define your brows.
Choose an eyeliner or brow pencil in a color that is closest to the color of your natural hair — try not to pick a very black pencil, it tends to be too harsh. A dark grey works well on most Asian faces. Hold the pencil up vertically (Line D) from the nose to the inner corner of your eye. Mark a dot on where the pencil intersects with the inner corner of your brow (Line B). This is where your eyebrow should start.
Hold the pencil from the nose to the outer corner of your eye (Line F). Mark a dot on where the pencil intersects with the outer corner of your eye. This is where your eyebrow should end. It should almost intersect with (Line B). This should be the lowest point the arch should come down to, from line E.
Hold the pencil up the side of your pupil (Line E). Place a dot on that line on your upper brow (Line C). This is where the peak of the arch in your eyebrow should be.
Using dots, roughly outline the curve your eyebrow will take. The upper and lower brows before Line E should be almost parallel (Line G). The natural shape of an eyebrow has a slight arch in it.
Using tiny feathery lines, fill in your eyebrows. Using many tiny lines will result in a more natural look as it emulates eyebrow hairs.
As with all makeup, practise, practise, practise. Here’s to well-shaped, sexy brows!
