Okay, let’s chat brows!
Each and every Anastasia brow appointment is based on the golden ratio. It’s all about proportion. The golden ratio is as follows:
- Brows begin directly above the middle of the nostrils.
- The high part of the arch connects the tip of the nose with the middle of the iris.
- Brows end where the corner of the nostril connects with the outer corner of the eye.
*Memorizing the golden ratio above will come in MAJOR handy when trying to obtain that perfect Anastasia brow at home. Pin this page and come back for a refresher if the guidelines slip your mind. 🙂
Below is a photo of Monica measuring out the perfect brow proportion using the Anastasia method.
Anastasia brow stencils are the key to a Signature Anastasia brow wax. The Golden ratio is used to choose which stencil is best for each client. Monica used the “Full Arch” stencil for my brows as seen below.
Before applying brow powder, Monica used this waxy primer that helps the powder adhere to the brow.
Finally, the edges of my brows were defined with the oh-so-popular brow wiz pencil in color “dark brown”.
To accentuate the arch and provide a clean edge, Monica applied the pro pencil in color “base 1” right beneath my brow (as seen below).
(Tip: The pro pencil can also be used as an eyeshadow base! I love double duty beauty finds!)
To finish, my brows were locked into place with this crazy-popular Anastasia clear brow gel. I’ve used it for years – it’s a winner for all-day, flexible hold!
