Full Brow Shaping and Brow Products

Full thick brows are the new thing this spring.  There are so many different brands and especially many different kind of brow product.  I'm sure you are wondering which one is the right one for you.  So I gathered a few brow products that would benefit your lovely brows.  I drew a picture of how your brow should naturally be shaped, along are some photos I shot focusing on just brows.  The makeup and hair on the models were done by me.  Enjoy!

Tip for naturally shaped brows:  (1) Using a pencil or a long thin brush determine where your brow should start by placing it vertically from the outer corner of your nose to the inner corner of your eyes.  (2) Next place the pencil or brush diagonally from the corner of your nose to the pupil of your eye or the outer corner of the iris, the highest point from that angle is where your natural arch should be.  (3) At last, your brow is to end from the corner of the nose to the outer corner of the eye.  Shape'em by tweezing or waxing and fill them in!
