I am obsessed with perfecting my brows. While I'm confident to go out of the house without makeup, my face feels bare if I don't do something about my eyebrows. I make it a habit to fill them in or visit a salon when I can no longer tame them myself. When it comes to shaping, I have always gone with the straight option since I subcribe to the ways of K-beauty gurus. That said, my brows have never experienced sharp arches (mainly because of my irrational fear of overtweezing leading to bald brows), but that changes now.
Benefit Cosmetics has just launched a try-on feature on their website that will let you see how different brow shapes, width and colors will look on you. Called the Brow Try-On, the technology uses advanced facemapping techniques that realistically transform your brows with just one click. Here's how to use it:
Step 1: Upload a selfie.

Step 2: Adjust the yellow dots according to your current eyebrow shape.

The technology automatically transforms your current eyebrow shape by aligning and proportioning it according to your eyes and nose. This gives you the ideal and recommended shape for your face.
Step 3: Experiment!

For the top photo, I chose a brow shape that had prominent arches, then adjusted the color to a lighter shade. From there, I found out that an arch can also work for me as long as it's not too sharp or too high.
For the bottom photo, I couldn't resist not experimenting with the perfect straight brow shape! I chose another default brow choice that featured straight brows. Next, I tinkered with the width and definition, discovering that I really need to have my brows waxed as they're already too thick and bushy!
Once you're happy with your new brows, you click the "Get this Brow" button and you'll have the shape you should request for on your next appointment, and the recommended products and shade you'll need to get the look.
