Candy Egalite, Benefit brow expert at Benefit Brow Bar at Macy’s in Medford, says Benefit Brow Bar uses a signature technique called Brow Mapping to help clients choose the shape that’s right for them. To do it at home, Egalite explains:
Step 1: Line up an eyebrow pencil or brush with the dimple of the nose, going straight up until it meets the brow. This is where your brow should begin. It helps create a slimming effect on the nose and balances the eyes.
Step 2: Hold the brush at the outside corner of your nose and angle it until the handle passes the center pupil and the tip of the brush touches the highest portion of your eyebrow. This is your ideal arch.
Step 3: Keep the base of the brush at the outside corner of the nose and angle the brush tip over once more until it lines up with the outer corner of the eye. This is where your brow should end. Finding that perfect end helps to ensure proper proportion to the face shape.
Step 4: Once the points are identified, connect each point with the wax. “It’s the hairs that fall above and below those lines that just don’t belong,” Egalite says.
