We came across another formula for “perfect eyebrows” recently. It involves angles instead of vertical alignments. Proponents of this template to beautiful brows suggest using a tweezer or brow pencil to draw three imaginary lines that extend from the side of the nostril (see cyan lines on Angelina Jolie below). The first line is aligned to the inner corner of the eyes or tearduct (cyan line A). This is the point where the inner eyebrows should start. The second imaginary line runs from the side of the nose to the outer side of the pupil staring straight up (cyan line B). The point where this meets the eyebrow is where the brow arch should ideally be (an alternative angle for this starts at the middle of your nose and extends to the middle of your pupils). The third line is drawn to the outer corner of the eyes (cyan line C). This is where the tail of the brow should end.

Eyebrows That Do Not Conform To Formula
The trend for most Korean women in the media industry seem to favor thicker, straighter brows as apposed to thinner, arched ones. Done correctly, it creates a more youthful appearance. Actress Han Ga In is one of them. Han Ga-In’s eyes are beautifully framed by her thicker brows. The inner corners of her brows are aligned to her nose bridge instead of the imaginary line as shown.
Lee Hyo-Ri is another attractive Korean singer/actress who has thicker, less arched brows framing her eyes. You can see that her brows a drawn closer than what is said to be the perfect eyebrow standard (indicated by cyan lines).
Camilla Belle’s eyebrows are luscious, thick and beautifully well-defined. They match her eyes and the rest of her features perfectly. Does it conform to the perfect eyebrow shaping formula? The brows look vertically aligned to the nose bridge however don’t conform to the the above formula.
Her eyebrows neither start at her brow bone meets the nose bridge nor on the same plane of the perfect brow line A. But who can deny Aishwarya Rai’s beauty?
