Eyebrows: Sisters, Not Twins

Eyebrows can change everything on a person’s face. Everyone strives for the perfect pair of brows. We’re all told that facial symmetry is the most attractive, so the hope is that those perfect brows will help create that symmetry.

But your brows don’t exactly match. Notice your frustrations when doing eyeliner. Most people find it hard to get their eyeliner to match. If you look closely, your eyes just don’t match. So why would you expect that your brows would? Your brows probably look similar, but not identical. Don’t force it.

If you are battling to get the brows you want, there are a few things you can do to help get you there. If you have an esthetician and want a reshape, it can take up to 3-6 months of untouched re-growth to get a brand new shape. If you are looking for a quick fix for a night out, all you need is an angle brush and some powder.

Eyebrow Length Guide

First use a pencil or makeup brush to draw points on your brow at the inner corner—directly above the side of your nostril; at the arch—parallel to the outer side of your iris; and at the tail end—diagonally in line with the side of your nostril and the outer corner of your eye. With the three points marked out, use your angle brush and hair-matching powder to fill in the shape.

Training your brows to grow and lie the way you want also helps in creating the perfect brows. Using an empty mascara wand and Vaseline, or an aloe vera gel, brush your brows nightly to lie how they should. After a few weeks, your brows should start behaving appropriately.

If your brows are sparse, there is an old fashion trick of using castor oil on your brows nightly to help encourage the hair follicles to grow. But now, with technology on our side, there are great topical treatment serums like Revitabrow to help the process go faster.
