If you hate your eyebrows, learn how to change them! Eyebrows “frame” the face giving it expression. Look at this picture. The difference should be evident. Inaffective eyebrow shapes include:
• The half moon, which gives the face a constantly startled or surprised look.
• The downward curved brow, which causes the face to look eternally sad.
• The upward slant with no arch and slightly fuller nearest the nose promotes an angry or oriental look.
• The straight brow that looks like two caterpillars sitting on top of the eye is expressionless.
You may pluck your own brows or have them done by a professional. If you use a professional, it might be advisable to take a copy of the above picture for the attendant to follow. Once you have your frame — the eyebrows — in place, you can begin to distribute your makeup accordingly.
Changing the shape of your eyebrows is very personal and one of the most difficult things to do. However, great eyebrows lend to the expressiveness of the face and enhance our communication. With the correct shape, often people’s response to you, in daily conversation, will be more cordial and positive.
If upon using this chart, you found that you needed to make a change, do it! Then take a picture and study it. What were your feelings? If you got the nerve to change your brows according to the chart, but didn’t tell anyone, what have you found to be different in the way people address you?! I’d love to hear about these issues!!!
