Beauty and eyebrows go hand-in-hand, and it goes without saying that there is nothing hotter in the world of beauty right now than a great set of power brows. Yes, eyebrows are having a major moment. Those patches of hair above your lids have the ability to transform your whole look.
Let’s take a peek into the quest for the “perfect brow”.
THE BROW TREND
Like fashion and hairstyles, eyebrow trends change with time. Do you remember when the mullet was in? Yikes. The search for the perfect brow has been a long (sometimes strange) journey that continues to evolve decade by decade.
Bold, fierce statement brows are a popular look today, but what if we told you it hasn’t always been this way?
From Cleopatra to Cara Delevingne, here are some brow trends we can all be thankful for!
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane…
We’ve seen thin, thick, unibrow, arched, straight, bleached, tweezed, waxed… the list goes on and on. The more we’ve seen, the more we’ve understood that the art of brows can truly make a bold beauty statement.
THE PERFECT BROW FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE
If eyes are the window to the soul, then eyebrows are the frame to your face. We’re here to tell you that brows are not one-size-fits-all.
Different face shapes mean different brow shapes. Makes sense, right? Here’s the breakdown.
If you have an oval-shaped face, you’re one lucky gal. You will practically look great no matter what you do, but beauty experts agree that slightly arched brows work best! By the looks of Jessica Alba, we’d have to agree.
For all you heart-shaped beauties, less is more. A low, straight-ish arch that hugs your brow bone is recommended, but your focus should mainly be about keeping your natural brow shape groomed and cleaned.
For the lovely ladies that share a square-shaped face, your goal should be to soften the jawline. Try creating a highlighted, slightly angled or curved arch to bring balance to your facial features!
MAKEUP & TOOLS NEEDED FOR THE PERFECT BROWS
Brow maintenance should be an essential part of any beauty routine. That’s why it’s worth going the extra mile to purchase just the right products that work best for your eyebrows.
