Square Brows: A Fashion Choice for 2013
the facial feature that have captured hearts and redefined facial features. I
just love them! Although intended to be nature's protection for the eyes,
women and beauty personals
have come to esteem them as a thing of beauty.
More and more women are looking for a flatter, straighter, more masculine look.
I think it has to do with the increasing surge for equality of the sexes. Women
are subconsciously favouring a masculine brow. Some women are even turning to
hair transplant surgery to fill in their over-plucked brows.
Eyebrow setting depends on how your eyes sit and the size of your forehead.
For small, narrow foreheads, you donít want high arches, which look too
close to the hairline.
Eyebrows should be at least two shades darker then your hair colour
or they will get lost in your face.
A strong brow can help balance strong features such as a square jaw
and give a slimming appearance to a round face.
The inner corner of the brow should begin from the outside edge of
your nose up to the inside corner of your eye.
The tail of the brow should end from the center of the upper lip,
along the outer edge of the nose, up to the outer corner of the eye.
For sharp angles in a brow, you may need to trim hairs.
Eyebrows: Growing Thicker
Brows have raised their profile on fashion runways, growing
thicker and working a sharper angle with each passing season. This year they
were a part of Marc Jacobs rock 'n' roll, "party girl" look at the Spring
2013 shows in New York. "A bolder brow gives balance to all the looks we are
seeing now," said Nars International lead makeup artist Uzo, citing the
models for Marc Jacobs' spring 2013 collection as her favorite example of
brows that are "superdramatic, superdark and squared, paying homage to the
'60s and Edie Sedgwick." For a square brow, push a hard-angled brush into a
brow powder or pigmented wax. Place the brush blade vertically on Point A
(straight up alongside the bridge of the nose) and flick slightly toward the
middle of the brow.
The beauty look at Alexander
Wang this season was
minimalistic, modern, and slightly androgynous. Diane Kendal for NARS gave
the models strong boyish eyebrows, bleached for a luminous effect.
Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics also concentrated on boyish eyebrows
matching it with cherry red lips at the fashion show in New York.
Time to go bold with your brows.
