You all know that I am obsessed with eyebrows. Your eyebrows frame your face, and they really make a huge impact on all your other features. That's why you should aim to get your eyebrows right or everything could look wrong. Now I was reading an article on scary brows. Admit it, some of us have it, and I even use to pencil my eyebrows with black eyeliner to get that scary effect when I was younger (oh the horrid makeup mistakes we made when we were young). Arch eyebrows can sometimes make you look scary - depending on how arched your eyebrows are. I usually get told from friends and other people I meet that it's difficult to approach me in public, because at times I look scary or in a mood. Now I don't think I am moody, or ever angry (unless I miss out on a sale item then I am), but I assume my natural face looks scary, unapproachable? So, I went on a mission to get softer looking eyebrows. What does that mean? I took the arch out of my eyebrows.
The aim was to cut the triangles off the ends to bring my arch more towards the middle. So, I was not completely removing the arch but positioning it differently just to make it look less harsh.
If you look closely, I have left some hairs on the right eyebrow to show you just where the arch used to be. I use to have a very sharp arch and I had to cut off quite a bit.
Here are some old pictures with the old arched eyebrows

Can you see how it softens my face, and makes me look less harsh, angry and unapproachable?
What do you all think?
