How to Shape Eyebrows the Anastasia Method


For years Anastasia Soare has been shaping the most sought after brows in Hollywood, her clients include Oprah, Kim K. J.Lo, Megan Fox and more. She moved to the US from Romania with a passion that was undeniable - shaping beautiful eyebrows. In this video she'll demo her method for shaping eyebrows using her products



The human eye is encoded to constantly seek out balance. Objects that are in the correct proportion are perceived by the human eye as pleasing or even beautiful. Classic architecture, statues, works of art, and even the most beautiful faces in the world are commonly heralded as magnificent because they each exhibit a perfect balance that humans can subconsciously calculate. This perfect balance is referred to by scholars as "The Golden Ratio". Through her in-depth studies of art, architecture, and engineering, Anastasia Soare discovered a way to naturally bring balance to the face, and apply the laws of the Golden Ratio for everyone.



The Golden Ratio in itself represents balance and proportion, and Anastasia Soare was the first to apply this principle to one of the most prominent features on the human face, brows. Her trademarked "Golden Ratio" technique creates balance in the entire face using the eyebrows as the staring point. Ideally, the face can be sectioned into thirds. The first section is from the top of the forehead to the top of the eyebrows. The second is from the top of the eyebrows to the bottom of the nose. The third section is from the top of the Cupid’s bow to the bottom of the chin. Ideally, all three sections should be the same length. Furthering this idea of balance, the ideal face shape is said to be 2/3 as wide as it is long, and symmetrical on both sides.



Taking all of these complex factors into consideration, Anastasia discovered the easiest way to balance every face was through applying the Golden Ratio to the brows. Her signature technique calculates the exact starting and ending points in conjunction with the ideal arch for each individual face. These three points are the first step in creating symmetry and proportion in the features. Following her dream to make this system accessible for everyone, Anastasia created a set of five patented Stencils that demonstrate the ideal brow shape for every type of face. No matter what features the individual possesses, the stencils work with the Golden Ratio and natural bone structure to create an ideal custom brow for every person.


Here are all 5 of Anastasia's Signature Stencils, as you can see there is a stencil for every face shape, preference, and natural placement. From a slim to full arch I'm sure you won't have any problems figuring your next client's shape.
