Getting the Perfect Brow

credit:http://www.dermstore.com/articles/article_1515.htmAll brows are not created equal.  The size and shape of your brow rely heavily on your face type.  to determine the perfect brow for your face first determine your face shape

Step 1: Measure your face from your hairline down to your chin, and divide your answer by 3.

Step 2: Measure the distance from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin.

*If your answer in Step 1 is greater than your answer in Step 2: Long or Square

*If your answer in Step 1 is less than your answer in Step 2: Round

*If your answers are equal: Oval or Heart

If you have a long face:
Aim for long, horizontal eyebrows with understated arches to visually widen and shorten your face.

If you have an oval-shaped face:
Oval-shaped faces can get away with any hairstyle, but as for eyebrows, keep your arches moderately sculpted and balanced.

If you have a round face:
Significantly arched eyebrows can visually elongate your face, balancing out the roundness of your face. To further exaggerate the arch, make the outer end of your eyebrows slightly higher than the inner end.

If you have a square-shaped face:
Like round faces, square faces have almost the same face length vertically and horizontally, so a good, elongated arch will help you balance this out.

If you have a heart-shaped face:
Aim for thicker, bolder and rounder eyebrows to soften the look of strong jaw lines and pointy chin.

Now that you know what TYPE of brow you need to compliment your face, the next step is to measure the proper position.

Take a pencil, ruler, makeup brush or any straight object and align it in the following positions to determine where the different portions of the brow should go

The beginning of the brow should start in line with the outer corner of the nostril.

The arch should align with from the outer corner of the nostril through the pupil of the eye,

The tail should end at the point which aligns from the outer corner of the nostril through the outer corner of the eyelids.

To make the eye appear longer you can extend the tail of the brow.

To make wide set eyes appear closer together, you can bring the beginning of the brow in a little further.

To make close set eyes appear farther apart, you can begin the brown further inward.

To make small eyes appear wider you can arch the brow a little higher.
