Arch Angel: A Four Part Series on the Perfect Eyebrow

20130128_141118-1A nice, pretty brow is all about balance. It’s a lot easier to get that perfect brow than you think, as long as you follow a few simple guidelines.

Starting Point The rule of thumb is to think about starting your brows at the inner corner of your eye. However, eye-set can change where the starting point should be. Take a ruler, an eyebrow pencil or any straight edge and line it up with the base of the nose along the nostril up to the inner corner of your eye. If the inner corner of the eye is inside of the ruler, then you have close-set eyes. If the inner corner of the eye lines up with the ruler, you have well-set eyes, and if the inner corner is outside the ruler then you have wide-set eyes.

If you have well-set eyes, you can comfortably start your brows at the inner corner. If you have close-set eyes, you might want to start your brows outside the inner corners. Don’t go too wide! I’m talking about a few hairs at most. Sometimes you can make your nose appear wider than it is. Also, if you have close-set eyes and narrow lips, you don’t want to go too far. You always want to maintain balance. Wide-set eyes, you can start inside the corner of the eye, closer to the bridge of the nose.

Remember, these are just guidelines. Like I said a gazillion times, it’s about maintaining balance.
