Eyebrows are huge these days (pun intended). Most eyebrow experts will tell you that when grooming, shaping and filling in your brows, look at them as sisters, not identical twins. There is no symmetry in nature and oftentimes we end up with a ‘too heavy’ or ‘too sparse’ set of brows in our efforts to make them look identical.
Another thing to keep in mind is that one ‘brow mapping’ formula will not fit all eyebrows. Some eyebrows are naturally thick, some are arched, and some are straight. Some fan at inner corners, some are rounded at their start while some disappear into nothingness at the tails. Should everyone start stamping on eyebrows with a set of stencils? No!
While full, well-groomed brows are the thing, it is equally important to remember that an eyebrow shape you envy on another person may not suit your delicate features.
