Our eyes, along with their respective lashes and eyebrows, are the most noticeable feature of our face. Altering any of these can noticeably alter our appearance. Alterations to lashes are best done by professionals, as are contact lenses for eyes colour changes. But eyebrow shaping can be part of the facial routine we perform ourselves.
The front of each eyebrow is above the nose. Opinions vary slightly about the optimal place for the front of the eyebrow to end, but most believe the end should align with the bridge of the nose. Occasionally some people align the front of the brow with the edge of the lower nose; it depends on the individual’s face. The optimum is always between these points. If the brows are closer than the bridge of the nose they will be almost touching. If they are wider than the nose itself they will look unnaturally far apart. The bridge of the nose is a good default point.
The outer point of the eyebrows need to be aligned to the outer edge of the nose and the eye itself. Imagine a diagonal line drawn from the outer edge of the nose/nostril to the outer edge of the eye. Extend this line up past the eyebrow. The outer point of the eyebrow should just reach this line.
Ideally the eyebrow should form the top of an inverted triangle. The nose is the vertical line of the triangle, and the eyebrow is the horizontal top line. The diagonal line is implied by these two lines. If this triangle can have the proportions of the classic golden ratio it looks particularly pleasing.
By all means get professional help with the makeup before the wedding. But we should be looking after ourselves all of the time. Find the eyebrow shape that compliments your individual face, and keep a great look for everyday wear.
