The shape of your eyebrows can communicate personality characteristics that other people perceive, says an expert. "Brows say so much about who you are without even uttering a word," says DeeDee Marcelli, celebrity makeup artist to the Chella Skin Care brand.
With this in mind, Marcelli created brow stencils in the four shapes that women most gravitate toward -- and as inspired by Old Hollywood glamour icons who vaulted into the public conscience the importance of a neatly groomed brow.

Sassy: "To me, this brow shape is reminiscent of Jane Russell; a brow that is thicker in front with a short tail and says, Look at me, I'm unique, not shy, a little edgy and a little outrageous!" says Marcelli. Sassy brows add a lot of personality to the face, and can be a great complement to bangs.
Alluring: "This brow draws you in. Beautifully sculpted, well-proportioned and perfect in every way. This template reminds me of the Sophia Loren look -- a bit exotic and a bit mysterious," says Marcelli. The fullness of this brow would be nicely balanced by an equally sexy nude or soft pink lipcolor.
Confident: "A dramatic high arch says, I am someone to be reckoned with and am sure of myself. Don't underestimate me just because I'm beautiful. This reminds me of a Marilyn Monroe-like brow," observes Marcelli. A touch of sheer-sheen cream eye shadow right below the arch and blended outward will highlight the exposed brow bone of this shape for a glamorous look.
Timeless: "This is always in style: a thin, sculpted brow shape that flows with a graceful look. This brow will always draw you in. An example of a timeless star is Grace Kelly. The look is effortless, yet always pulled-together," says Marcelli. The long, sweeping angle of this brow provides the perfect balance to a strong lip like a classic deep red.
StyleList suggests using the Chella stencils as a guide not only when you fill in, but also when you tweeze. Always err on the side of fuller, because brow hairs are not always guaranteed to grow back, especially as we get older. To fill in most naturally, opt for a powder or pencil that is one shade lighter than your hair color. Use a light hand and soft, gentle strokes for the most flattering results.
