Eyebrow Matching: What’s the Difference Between High & Low Eyebrows?
The first thing that comes into your mind when you hear the word “eyebrow matching” is high eyebrows.
But what exactly are they?
They’re not just any old eyebrows either; they’re a sign of good genes and beauty. A person with high eyebrows will have naturally thick eyebrows that are easily noticeable.
On the other hand, low eyebrows are often associated with being unattractive and unappealing. However, there is no scientific evidence to prove whether it’s genetic or environmental factors that cause someone to have a certain look. If you think about it, if everyone had the same facial features then everyone would be beautiful!
So why do some people look better than others?
Well, it all depends on their personality and personal preferences.
Highly intelligent people tend to have thicker eyebrows because they’re usually thinking a lot more than most people. They’re able to express themselves clearly without having to strain their eyes too much. On the other hand, those with less intelligence may need thinner eyebrows so that they can read more easily at times.
With that said, if you have low eyebrows then you’re not unattractive! You’re probably just a late bloomer. Everyone has good genes; you just have to wait a little longer for them to show up! In the meantime, be proud of who you are and own those eyebrows!
There’s no need to feel insecure about your eyebrows when there are other parts of your face that require extra attention.
How to Fill in Uneven Brows or How to Draw on Fake Brows with a Pencil
But what if you’ve tried everything and you’re still unhappy with your eyebrows?
There are many options out there for you! The first and most popular is microblading. This process involves getting tiny cuts into your skin to create hair-like strokes. It makes it easier to draw on eyebrows without making them look unnatural. The downside is that it can be expensive and painful!
If you’re looking for a cheaper and less painful option then go with eyebrow tattoos. This process involves getting what looks like a black pen and drawing on your eyebrows. It’s just like when you were a kid and you used to draw on yourself with a marker! The difference is that this ink is permanent so you should only do it if you’re sure you want those eyebrows!
The last option is the cheapest and easiest one. You can just draw on eyebrows with a pencil. It doesn’t look as natural as the other two but it gets the job done. All you have to do is practice until you get it right.
The best thing about this method is that you can easily take it off whenever you want!
In the text below you’ll find out what’s the meaning of different eyebrow shapes. Let’s get started!
Meaning of Different Eyebrow Shapes
The key to drawing on eyebrows that look natural is understanding the different eyebrow shapes and what they mean. There are many different eyebrow shapes out there that can all mean something different so it’s important that you choose the right one for you! But first let’s learn what parts of the eyebrows reveal about a person’s personality.
The inner part of the eyebrows reveal a lot about a person’s emotional thinking; how they think about emotions. For example, wide-set eyebrows often mean that a person doesn’t understand emotions as well and is more likely to avoid conflict. This happens because they’re unsure how to react to certain emotions; especially when it comes to their own. These people would rather stay away from emotionally charged situations.
Meanwhile, eyebrows that touch at the bridge of the nose reveal a person who is more in-tune with their emotions. They know what they’re feeling and they’re not afraid to express themselves. These people tend to not hold back. When they’re angry, they get mad!
If they’re sad, they’ll cry. You know exactly how they’re feeling at any given time.
The outside portion of the eyebrows reveal a lot about a person’s thinking style. For example, thick eyebrows that have a clear beginning and end means that the person thinks in a straight-forward manner. They’re very logical and are able to solve problems using critical thinking. They don’t let their feelings get in the way when they need to solve a problem.
Thick eyebrows that are rounded at the ends show that the person tends to think in a more creative manner. They’re able to understand things from all sides and aren’t afraid to think outside of the box. Some might even say they’re a little too creative because they sometimes come up with wild ideas that, while fun to think about, probably won’t work in real life.
Thin eyebrows that are rounded at the ends show that the person tends to not want to think deep thoughts or do any sort of critical thinking. They want to keep things as simple as possible and not over think anything. The best way to describe these people is that they’re “go with the flow” types. They’re willing to give almost any idea a chance and will change their mind based on the slightest evidence.
Define Your Eyebrows: Step-by-Step Instructions
Now that you know what different eyebrow shapes mean, it’s time to fill in the gaps! Here are the steps you need to follow in order to create your perfect eyebrows:
Important: You should have already drawn on your eyebrows before doing this. If you haven’t done that yet then do it now before continuing!
Step 1: Draw the outline of your eyebrow. Your latest drawing should still be visible from when you drew on your eyebrows earlier. Just take your pencil and draw around it, just as you did before.
Step 2: Find the beginning of your eyebrow.
The beginning is when the hair starts getting longer. Start here.
Step 3: Follow the eyebrow hairs until you reach an upward turn. Use a ruler or another straight object to make sure that you’re seeing the eyebrow hairs correctly and that they’re actually turning upwards.
Don’t go too high or you’ll be drawing your forehead! You just want to follow the hairs until they turn upwards in a slight curve.
Step 4: Draw a straight line upward for about a half an inch.
If you go too high, then you’ll start drawing your forehead, which is something you definitely don’t want to do. A half an inch is usually the perfect amount of space to leave between your eyebrow and where the beginning of your brows should be.
An easy way to do this part is to take a small strip of paper and roll it into a tiny pencil. Use that. It’s very thin so you can easily see the curve of the eyebrow hairs while still allowing you to draw a straight line that doesn’t go too high.
Step 5: Darken the line and make sure that it’s thick enough to be seen when your eyebrows are drawn on, but don’t go overboard.
Now that you know where the beginning of your eyebrows should be, you can decide whether you want to move them inward, outward, higher, or lower. Play around with it until you find the perfect shape for your face!
Try Different Shapes: How Your Eyebrows Can Define Your Face
You already know that thick eyebrows are very popular right now.
But why stop there?
Try other eyebrow shapes and see which one suits you best. As you can see, there are many different eyebrow shapes to choose from.
Oval: Oval-faced people look good in just about anything! Their round faces need softening so that their features don’t appear too harsh. Basically, keep your eyebrows anywhere from a half inch below the top of your brow to a half inch above it. You also want to avoid sharp corners at the bottom of the eyebrow and at the inner corner (the inner corner is where your eye starts).
Angling the eyebrow corner inward can make your face look more oval.
Round: Soften the edges of your eyebrows to avoid making your face look too harsh. Make sure that you keep the eyebrows thin (thick eyebrows don’t really suit round faces). The eyebrows should come nearly even with the top of the brow. Avoid a point at the inner corner of the eyebrow and make sure that you don’t arch it too far upward.
A diagonal line drawn through the middle of your eyebrow should cut through the rounded part of your eye.
Long: Long faces look good with thick eyebrows because it adds balance to your face. Your eyebrows should start at a point just above the center of your eye and end at a point at least a third of the way towards your temple. Avoid a sharp corner at the inner corner of the eye and avoid angling the eyebrow corner inward. A slight point at the inner corner of the eyebrow is okay.
Square: You can soften sharp edges on your face by making the brows a little closer together and by arching them slightly more than an oval face. The eyebrows should begin right above the inner corners of your eyes and be drawn right below the middle of your eye. Avoid a sharp angle at the inner corner and make sure that you draw the eyebrow to a point well after the middle of your eye.
Heart-shaped: Draw your eyebrow only slightly thicker than you would a round face. Your eyebrow should start at a point near the top of your eye and end in the middle of your eye (not much past it). Avoid making the eyebrow too pointy at the inner corner or too sharp at the bottom.
Triangular: Your eyebrows are narrowed into a point at both the inner and outer corners. Your eyebrows should start at a point just above the inner corner of your eye and end at a point well past the middle of your eye.
Now that you know all about eyebrows, it’s time to add some color! You can draw on the eyebrows after you’ve filled them in with the proper shape. If you’re really brave, you could even try coloring your eyebrows on!
Decorating Your Face: Eyeliner and Beyond
Now that your eyes have been defined and your eyebrows have been decorated, it’s time to bring some color into your life! Eyeliner is a great tool for making your eyes stand out. The eyeliner should begin right at the edge of your eyelid and end at the point where your eyebrow begins. Use a thin line and don’t make it too thick (about the width of your pencil is good).
If you’re daring, you could go further than just an eyeliner. Try putting on some eyeshadow! There are a myriad of different colors and “styles” of eyeshadow to choose from. Just make sure you experiment a little.
Here are some good basic colors to choose for your eyeshadow:
Blue: A plain, shimmery blue.
Green: A shimmery green that really brings out the color of your eyes.
Brown: A dark brown to make your eyes look even deeper than they already do.
Purple: A shimmery purple to make you look mysterious.
Black: A harsh color for those who are really daring.
No matter what you decide, be sure to add some depth and mystery to your eyes with a dark color along your lashline. This will make the whites of your eyes appear to glow. Don’t overdo it, though–a little color goes a long way!
The finishing touch is to add some color to your lips. Keep in mind that red and bold colors are a no-no since they will bring out the red in your lips. Your best bet is to go for subtle colors.
1. Choose a shimmery color that matches your skin tone.
If you’re unsure of what your skin tone is, go with the lighter option. This will make your lips stand out without being to flashy.
2. Add some color to your lips and don’t be afraid to overdo it a bit!
The color should come right to the edge of your lips. Vampy, bold colors look great on you, so go ahead and try some of them out if you want!
Remember, you can always adjust as you go along. Your face paint should look good TO YOU. Don’t feel that you have to follow these guidelines exactly. If you want to add more depth to your eyes with a third color, go for it!
As long as the general effect is dark and mysterious, you should be fine.
When in doubt, remember that less is more. If you feel like you’ve added too much color or it’s just not looking right, don’t be afraid to remove some of it. You can add more later if you really want to; at this point it’s better to have something that you are comfortable with rather than something that may look perfect to others but not to you.
Now that you’ve perfected your look, it’s time to move on to the rest of your body.
Decorating: From Head To Toe
You probably already have something in mind for your clothing. If not, take a look through your closet and see what jumps out at you. Maybe it’s a long, slinky dress; or maybe it’s a pair of baggy pants and a loose t-shirt. Either way, it’s time to put it to good use.
The underwear is the first thing you put on, right?
Then start decorating there. If you don’t like the underwear you have on, take it off and put on a different color or style. If you like what you’ve got on, then do one of three things:
1. Wear lingerie under what you’re wearing.
(This is a good option for girls.) Wear it under your clothes or over it, whatever you’re comfortable with.
2. Add jewelry.
Necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, hair things–anything goes! Just make sure that none of the pieces are loose or might accidentally fall off and get lost on the floor.
3. Add stockings or tights, if you have them.
We know that not everybody likes to wear them, but if you do, this is a good time to bust them out.
That’s it! After you’re dressed to your satisfaction, move on to something else.
Purse: The finishing touch to your outfit is your purse if you carry one. Pick one that goes with what you’re wearing and decorate it however you like. You can either carry the basic purse or one of the following:
Handbags (Various styles and colors)
It’s up to you! Just make sure you feel comfortable and able to move around in it. If you’re a guy, then just choose the backpack or fannypack.
Last But Not Least: Your Body
Now for the fun (and sometimes yucky) part: decorating your body! You may already have some ideas in mind, but here are a few more suggestions. They’re divided into three sections: hair, face and body. Pick and choose as you like!
1. Hair Color: Either dye your hair or your friend’s hair the color of your choice.
(Remember to pick a color that will look good on both of you!)
2. Hair Accessories: Pick up some fun barrettes, headbands or scrunchies at the store.
You can also add ribbons, flowers or feathers if you like. Be sure they match your outfit!
3. Clip-On Earrings: Add some clip-on earrings to your outfit.
They come in a variety of colors and designs, so you’re sure to find some that you like.
1. Foundation/Powder: Even out your skin tone with some face powder.
You can buy some at the store or get your mom or sister to help you–whatever works!
2. Blush: Powdered blush comes in many shades and colors.
You can pick one that matches your skin tone or goes with your outfit.
3. Mascara: For a more dramatic look, try adding some mascara to your eyes.
Start with the lighter colors first and add more as desired. You don’t want to look like you’ve got back paint on!
4. Eye Shadow: Pick a color and add it around your eye.
Add a little eyeliner and you’ll look great!
5. Lipstick: To finish off your face, add some lipstick.
You can buy one at the store or make your own by mixing lip gloss and lip stick together.
6. Blotting Paper: To keep your makeup from running, use some blotting paper.
Just pat it on your face after you powder or put on blush and you’ll look fresh all day!
1. Fake Nails: Add some fake nails in either a fun color or one that matches your outfit.
2. Nail Polish: Paint your nails the color of your choice.
You can get it at the store or add some nail polish you already have at home.
3. Tattoos: You’ll need a parent’s help with this one, but if you’re old enough to get a tattoo, by all means go for it!
Just remember that you’ll have it forever (or at least as long as it doesn’t expire or someone doesn’t remove it).
That’s all! If you need to, go back and read through the steps and tips again. As with any skill, practice makes perfect! Have fun and be yourself.
* Be careful when using hair dye. If you put too much on, it can damage your skin and hair!
* The same goes for nail polish and tattoos. You can add these at any stage, but be careful when you do!
Your score is:
Perfection: 10 Greatness: 8 Success: 6 Mediocre: 4 Fail: 2
Hello and congratulations! Whether you’re here to see how you did or just want a quick refresher course, I’m here to help.
Here are some of the tricks we talked about:
* Showing Off: This is one of those skills that not everyone’s into. But if you like showing off, these are the types of things you can do: wear a pair of big, crazy sunglasses; put your hair in a ponytail before class starts; bring a water bottle (or something else) in a crazy color like hot pink or orange; wear clothes with interesting designs on them. For example, I’m wearing a shirt with a few words from a song written on it.
* Be Yourself: This is the most important tip of all. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. If you try to be cool or beautiful and it doesn’t come naturally to you, then it will be obvious to everyone (including you), no matter what you do. The key to this project is being comfortable with yourself.
So if that means you don’t put on a lot of makeup or you don’t show off, then that’s okay. Just enjoy yourself and have fun!
Here are some of the things we went over:
* Body Language: How you carry yourself says a lot about who you are. The way to practice this is pretty simple. All you have to do is keep your head up (eyes ahead), stand up straight, don’t fidget or squirm, and move smoothly. If you’re standing in line at a store, don’t bounce around or chew your nails.
If you’re sitting down, don’t slouch or cross your arms. Stand in a powerful pose like a model or president (legs apart and hands on hips). And of course, always, always smile!
* Eye Contact: When you make eye contact it shows that you’re interested in what the other person has to say. But don’t stare too hard. Glance, smile, and then look away. If you’re talking to someone you really like or feel comfortable with, then look them in the eye more often.
* Voice: This is another important part of communication. When you speak, speak clearly and confidently (don’t whisper or mumble). Try not to chew gum (especially loud ones) or eat while you talk, because it will be hard to hear you.
* Posture: Stand up straight! Slouching is a major communication no-no. Good posture shows that you’re paying attention and that you feel confident and comfortable. Try standing up straight right now.
While you’re reading this, see how much better you can focus. That’s the power of good posture!
* Dress for Success: The way you dress sends a message about who you are to the world. If you’re dressed like a hobo, people will think you’re a hobo. If you’re dressed preppy, people will think you’re preppy. Dress for the image you want to present to others.
Remember to have fun and enjoy yourself. You’ll shine when you least expect it!
