One of my favorite things about eyebrows are how versatile and varied they are.
Brows are like snowflakes, no two the same (not even two on the same head!).
In fact, I read a study where they took photos of celebrities and removed just their eyes in half and just their brows in the other. The photos without brows were the least likely to be recognized by the survey.
Brows play a huge part in face recognition.
Which explains why even the slightest change in the eyebrows of a makeover will throw the model off completely. How could it not? According to this study she barely recognizes herself now!
Still, with many women saying they’d love some eyebrow assistance, I’d say the first step is getting comfortable with a little experimentation (not with the tweezers, with the shadow) to find the best shape, thickness and length. So I rustled up some inspiration.
I think this example show that there really aren’t any rules. Cara has nearly black and very thick brows with blonde hair and fair skin, Charlize’s are thin and soft with tan skin. Both look beautiful to me.
It’s all about preference.
Whose brows do you like? & Why?
Homework assignment for tonight: Do a little celebrity browsing/brow stalking. (on TV, internet, magazines or wherever)
Pay attention to the length, the thickness, the arch. Get familiar with what you like.
For those of us who are not brows obsessed this might be pretty eye opening (pun intended)
I’ll warn you now though, once you open this door, you’ll never not notice eyebrows again.
See you tomorrow!
