I am loving every makeup trend that Spring 2013 has brought with it, mainly bold lips, bold lashes, bold black liners and bold eyebrows. This blogpost will be dedicated to the massive eyebrow trend that I am currently obsessed with.
As a 90's kid, I remember seeing women with thin eyebrows, which was kind of cool that time, and please don't ask me why. I'm the least person who can make fun of thin eyebrows though. A year ago wasn't the 90's for sure, yet my eyebrows were crazy thin. I think I was trying to keep my brows thin so that my eyes look bigger, to maybe keep them in proportion, however, that was a big fail on my regards. I'm still not sure what I was trying to achieve.

As you can see, auto criticism and not taking yourselves too serious makes you good, and I decided I wanted to make them thicker. The process took quite a long time and some different shapes through the making. I'm still not happy with the current situation of my brows, but I think it's the best they have been so far.

Every face is going to have a different eyebrow shape which goes with it depending on the bone structure and size of eyes. The best way in shaping your eyebrows is imagining the three lines you see in the photo. These lines guide you on where your brows must end, and where the arch must be. I would like my eyebrows to be slightly longer at the edges and heavier in volume. Filling with an eyebrow pencil and styling with an eyebrow gel helps you modify your eyebrows to a certain extent.

Eyebrows are like an accessory to the face, a bold statement which makes your eyes look more expressive.
