For the last two years I feel that well shaped and filled in eyebrows have become more and more popular in the make-up world and to me, it’s not a surprise as of why. Eyebrows can drastically change what a person looks like and they add so much character to a face that I feel like it’s one of the first things that you should try to tackle when you’re interested in make-up. To illustrate how important brows are to the general look of a face I proceeded to quickly sketch a lady and gave her over 15 different brow shapes and intensities.
You may ask why? OiB is about natural beauty, and applied aromatherapy tips. Since the past months, I shared with you:
- How to make an awesome mask at home with basic ingredients such as orange, carrots, honey and even cool seeds you never heard of!
- Which powders are a blessing for your skin like fenugreek, shikakai, rice or cinnamon to name a few.
- Which refreshments are part of my secret love affair: almond milk, turmeric latte or smoothies
- … and my favorite recipes for breakfast with eggs and matcha!
And more coming soon! Because beauty has different ways of expressing itself, I though it is time to diversify my scope, at least for a day – No fancy words, promise!
I’m not going to tell you which ones I think are flattering or not because I feel like it’s a matter of taste and not of fact. I personally dislike it when people tell you how to do something because they often only suggest it because it’s what they personally like, not what may be most suitable for you. Different faces suit different things, so you should do your brows in whichever way you want!
All I want to achieve with this is that you become aware of what different eyebrows do and perhaps gain some insight into how you want to shape your own. The next beautiful visuals are the courtesy of HantasticBeauty.
See how much changes in the intensity of the expressions when you change the opacity of the eyebrow. This is why it’s important to think of the colour as well! It can change how you come across drastically.
These two are almost identical, but the one on the left is more heavily filled in towards the tail and the beginning of the brow is left natural and lighter. On the right, the brow is filled in all the way to the center, note how much the intensity of the brow changes with just a little addition like that. So if you want a softer, more natural effect, lightly fill in the beginning of the brow instead of heavily
See how even a light or artistic eyebrow can bring expression to the face in a way that the ‘no eyebrow’ lacks, though not having brows can be a statement in itself as well and is quite popular for that.
