I get this question ALL THE TIME.
While some faces are less or more symmetrical than others, as long as your following you basic dimensions (HERE) you should let your natural brows be your guide. If they are naturally quite different chances are so are your eyes and by making your brows too symmetrical you could actually be challenging the balance in your face!
The other problem I’ve seen with tweezer-over-achievers is that when you get too perfectionistic you can easily get carried away and end up with small thin baby brows, that probably still aren’t perfect enough.
If this has already happened it’s OK. I would recommend letting them grow for a month or two (however long it takes for yours to get full again) You can still clean up in the unibrow and down very low into your eyelid where know KNOW you don’t want hair, but other than that let them go. It will be painful, but it’s worth it to getting those babies back on track. And trust me no one is as bothered by your brow scruff as you are, most people don’t even notice.
And now, a couple of my brow makeovers! (this brow school may go forever! 🙂
This is for Jessica. (BTW you are beautiful!)
As you can see in the photos I barely had to change her brows at all, but the tiny changes really opened her up.
First I took off a small amount of hair in the inner corners of her brows, to give her more space between lid and brow and also to round them off a bit. Next I brought her arch up in the outer half. Sometimes when brows are pointing down they have a closed off or sad effect. by bumping up that are you really wake up and look brighter and happier. It may take some filling above your natural arch (I do that) or just growing them in a little higher but it only takes a tiny bit of elevation to make a huge impression.
OK you are beautiful too! I feel awful but for some reason, when I saved this photo I didn’t add a name! So if you see this please comment to tell me your name, I tried to go through the emails and find it but there were nearly one thousand so, I thought this might be easier!
With these brows I saw a similar subtle downward angle that I wanted to perk up a bit. Since she has plenty of space between lid and brow I went another route and filled in her inner corner lower, leaving her outer corners the same. Still adding some oomph to the arch. Other than that I just filled them to be a little darker and a wee bit closer together. (if I had done it in real life I would have used MAC shadow in Brun to do that) I love the way it softens her expression just enough and gives her some intensity.
What do you guys think, do you agree?
