Eyebrows are known to highlight our beauty and enhance our look. No matter what shape your face is, or how big your eyes are, there are some basic guidelines you can follow to get perfect eyebrows. Anastasia Soare – founder of Anastasia Beverly Hillstold People magazine that she uses the Golden Ratio Eyebrow Shaping Method to groom them. This aesthetic technique is used by celebrities like Michelle Obama, Naomi Campbell, the Kardashians, and Jennifer Lopez.

The Golden Ratio Eyebrow Shaping Method

As part of the technique, it states that brows should begin directly above the middle of your nostrils. The highest point of the arch should line up with the center of the iris and end at the tip of the nose, and they should end where an imaginary diagonal line connects the corner of the nostril up with the outer corner of the eye.

According to Anastasia, as explained in Poosh, this patented method will help you determine where your brows should start, arch and end: “Using these three marks will help you to groom your brows to create better balance and symmetry.”

Anastasia tells us that it took a long time to convince Kim Kardashian to let her work on her eyebrows. “She would say, ‘No, I do my own eyebrows.’ If you look way back in older photos, you will see her brows were stronger and more square-shaped before...
