Raising Eyebrows… With Your Eyebrows

Eyebrows are those lovely little things that are supposed to frame and draw attention to our eyes. But sometimes we forget to reign those suckers in and before we know it, they become little attention whores. Don’t let it happen to you.

EYEBROW SHAPE

Your eyebrows are supposed to follow the line of your browbone. If you hold a pencil straight up alongside your nose, your eyebrows should STOP at the inner corner of your eye. If you then angle that pencil so that it covers your pupil, your eyebrows should PEAK at the point where the pencil crosses your brow. If you then angle that pencil again along the outer corner of your eye, your eyebrows should STOP where the pencil crosses your browbone.  Pluck them sparingly.

EYEBROW COLOR

Enhance your eyebrows carefully with a shade relatively close to their original color. And blend, ladies. BLEND!

If your eyebrows have become the focal point of your face like any of the following, you might want to go back to the drawing board.

THE OVERPLUCK

Don’t pluck the inner corners of your eyebrows so much that they look like they’re running away from one another.

THE BURT

Eyebrows don’t belong in a straight line unless your best friend’s name is Ernie.

THE COLOR MISMATCH

DO pay attention to your hair color and match your eyebrow color accordingly. A shade slightly darker is fine. This is not. Ever.

THE SHARPIE

Do not draw your eyebrows on with a Sharpie, or anything that resembles a Sharpie when you’re finished. BLEND.

THE SPOCK

Your natural eyebrow line was given to you for a reason. Only Leonard Nimoy looks good with eyebrows like this. Besides, it makes you look perpetually angry.

THE “ARTISTIC” EYEBROW

When your eyebrows have ceased to remotely resemble anything that nature intended an eyebrow to look like, you’re overdoing it.

THE… WHATEVER THIS IS

Just one word. Don’t. For the love of God, just… don’t.
