When we look in the mirror we expect to recognise ourselves. We may not like what we see, perhaps a poor night’s sleep has left us with shadows under the eyes; an illness is affecting skin tone or we are just looking grubby and needing a shower. But we recognise the image as our self.
For many of my clients, who have lost their eyebrows, they tell me that they don’t recognise themselves in the mirror, until they have created their eyebrows each morning. A recent client said that without eyebrows she had a shock each time she looked in a mirror, she felt she was looking at a scarecrow version of herself.
Until you lose eyebrows it is almost impossible to understand what a huge impact they have on the definition of a face. As well as defining forehead and eye area, eyebrows balance cheek bones and jaw line, giving proportion and character to the face.
Whilst there are apps and advice to look at hairstyle and clothes shape there is very little about the impact of eyebrows. Styles change over the years with highly plucked styles out of fashion and a heavier brow in favour at the moment.
What many of my clients don’t realise is how a subtle change in eyebrow shape can emphasise the eye. By just slightly changing the curve from the centre of the eyebrow to the outer edge, the other end from the nose, the eyes can appear larger and brighter, making the whole face seem more open and expressive.
