What is brow strength? This is having an eyebrow thickness which is best for your face size, shape and your features.
Why is this important? The thickness of your brow can impact your face and look in so many ways. If your face is petite with a fine bone structure and you have heavy thick eyebrows it will over power your face and your brows will be the first thing anyone sees on you – not your delicate features. It can make you look harsh when you may in reality have a sweet personality.
If your face is full or your cheeks fleshy then thin eyebrows will make your face look even bigger. I had one client who has a round face with a lot of cheeks – she brought a photo of a model with ultra thin brows. I tried to talk her out of thinning down her naturally thick brows to that thinness but she was determined that the ultra thin look was what she wanted. I did it for her with great reluctance and when I showed her the mirror, she saw exactly what I was talking about and how unflattering the thin brows were on her face – it made her face look fat and unbalanced. She then wanted to know what she could do – I replied that I would see her in two months when her eyebrows grew back to their original thickness.
Reality shows and pornography have made very thin eyebrows popular. However, thin eyebrows are not for everyone. You cannot go around chasing every style that comes and goes. You have to go with the eyebrow shape which best suits your features.
Notice something about the models or actresses who have thin eyebrows – they are very skinny with small faces so they can carry off the ultra thin brow. Also thin eyebrows carry other meanings in the porn industry.
Just like hairstyles, every hairstyle will not suit everyone and similarly every eyebrow shape will not be flattering to every face shape. You can have four eyebrow strengths:
– Ultra Thin
Some guidelines to help you decide which brow thickness is best for you:
A small face with petite features:
You can easily go with the ultra thin or thin eyebrow thickness.
Strong features with thick hair:
A thick eyebrow with a strong arch will be the best for you.
Large nose: You would want to have medium to thick brows to make your nose less prominent. Thin eyebrows are not a good option in this case.
If you want to look younger: Definitely go for a fuller brow. When you were a little girl your eyebrows were naturally thick so fuller brows will give you a more youthful look.
Square face shape: For this strong masculine face shape with a dominant square jaw a medium to thick eyebrow shape is a must. Also ensure that the arch of the brow is right above the square of your jaw to balance and enhance the beauty of your face.
