New Eyebrow Shape

Hey guys!
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.

BEFORE
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
Here are 2 recent pictures with my new eyebrow shape
Can you see how it softens my face, and makes me look less harsh, angry and unapproachable?

What do you all think?
Raise your hands if you are in favour of the new eyebrows

  5. our eyebrows are pretty much the same, and i think it might be that we have those "middle eastern/asian" eyebrows..
    i dont like the arch eyebrow, the only arch eyebrow i like is on Kat Von D.
    but yes your eyebrows look so much better without it.
    What contacts do you wear?
    i have blue ones but i want to get some more, yours are nice!
    also are they for vision or fashion purpose? (mine are for vision)

  6. Oooh you're so right. It really makes a difference! When I used to get my brows threaded the lady hated me because she kept trying to arch and shape them but I wouldn't let her lol x

  7. Hi Sam, Loving your new brows! I adore your lipstick/lipliner in the pic and wanted to know which one you're wearing? :) Since reading your blog, I have now been converted to the MAC face and body foundation, YSL no. 9 lipstick and revlon concealer!

    Keep up the great work chick x

    1. Hello Dee!

      Thank you so much. It's so nice to see someone appreciate your work, and my aim is for it to be helpful to all of you guys. <3 xx

      I'm assuming you are asking lipstick and lip pencil for the last picture?? If so, I am wearing Mac Cherish lipstick with Rimmel Tiramisu lip liner (which is my new favourite!!!) and then I put a clear lip gloss on top to add a tiny bit of shine. Hope that helps, any more question feel free to fire away!

      I love my Mac face and body foundation, that revlon concealer is amazing right? I wish they had one a bit darker because I would totally be using that under my eyes. YSL packaging is beautiful too xx

  8. Ive just done the same to mine, I like it so much better. My left brow has always been more rounded so I would arch it more to match the more pointed right brow. A few weeks ago I decided to try rounding the pointier brow and haven't looked back. X

    1. yey team round brows! I decided to do mine because I noticed Kim K were kinda rounded too and she always looked happy, jolly, smiley even when her face was straight (emotionless). I think eyebrows totally transforms your face, so I have done it recently and so far, I have got a lot of positive feedback so I think I will continue to round my eyebrows, and kiss goodbye to arched eyebrows from now on xxx

  12. Wow, brow envy!! ;) I actually think both eyebrows suit you, but the new eyebrow shape definitely softens your face! Do you typically do your own eyebrows?

    Also, what lipstick or lip product are you wearing in the first picture of your old arched eyebrows? The nude pinky color? It's gorgeous! :)

    1. Thank you! Yes I do my own eyebrows. I have been doing it for years so I am aware of what hairs to remove and the hairs not to. Believe me they use to be horrid before, but with practice I have learnt a lot!

      I am wearing Brave Lipstick from Mac. I did a blogpost here - http://samram1214.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/mac-brave-lipstick.html
