The Power of the Brow

Brows are the window to the soul. I’m just kidding, but brows really transform you face depending on their shape. With the right brow, you can look like you have a slimmer face, those with small lips or eyes can make up for it with a fierce brow, and some brows can even make you look younger. You might remember this post on Byrdie, but I loved it so much I wanted to share it here as well! So today I’m going to demonstrate the power of the brow.


1. Thick & Straight 

This is how I usually fill in my brows every day. Fuller brows have a way of making you look more youthful. This is great for people who have more of a square face as it adds softness to your look. I also call this the ‘Korean Brow.’ The thick and straight brow look in Korea is all the rage, and I find it super flattering! I used Glossier Boy Brow to brush them into place and then a powder to fill in the gaps.


2. Arched & Fierce

Arched brows are great for rounded faces. You can make a round face appear less round with an arched brow, but stay away from a round arch. Just make sure there is a subtle point in the arch. I call this my fierce look- I almost didn’t recognize myself with these brows! I looked like a completely different person. For this brow look, I used a brow brush to really get that arch, then I went over it with this Benefit Brow Gel and Anastasia Brow Wiz to really define it.


3. Light & Feathery

This brow is great for a more natural look especially when you want to wear a bold lip, plus it’s the easiest one to do! Brush your eyebrow hairs upward and then lightly fill the gaps in with an eyebrow pencil! I usually rock a light and feathery brow on the days when I don’t wear that much makeup. To get this look, I used a thin brush like this one from Benefit, and lightly brushed a matte eyeshadow to fill in the gaps! It works just as good as a brow powder, and it helps to cut down on makeup products when you’re traveling!

Like a good pair of earrings, your brows really frame your face. So what do your brows say about you?

  • Ah these are amazing tips! I literally don’t do anything to mine, but have really thick and bushy brows. I’ve been told I need to use a gel. So going to look into these tips <3 x


  • Zoenchi says:

    The second brow look kind of scares me a little to try it on, but maybe one day I will brace myself haha. I love the other looks. The first one is how I do my brows. Instead I do not really do much to them, I just fill them in and brush them in place.

  • Polly says:

    Brows really do have an impact on your overall face appearance! I would have to say my brows are more light and feathery. I don’t think I can get away with having fierce brows since it doesn’t suit well with my facial features.


  • diana says:

    So crazy how different brows can really change a face. I remember in high school the thinner the brow the better. I have no idea how I thought that was cool but thankfully my bushy brows came back and now I feel so much better with them.

  • Thuy says:

    From this post, I love the thick and straight brow. Given my style, I like the natural brow. But you say the round and arched is good for round faces? Mine is round so I may have to try that 🙂


  • Diana says:

    I just bought the Gimme Brow, can’t wait to try it and see what it does for my brows!

    Yasss, beautiful brows are the frame of the windows if the eyes are considered the soul. Perfecting the brow lines are never easy, it takes the help of a right tool. I do like these brows products mentioned here. They are a big help in creating such beautiful brows look. Merci for sharing Mademoiselle Chriselle! 🙂
