Grandma was a force of nature—impatient, aggressive, self-possessed. To look at her was to take a step back. She dyed her hair black and this intensified her already severe features, especially her eyebrows, which she smeared on each morning in thick, inky arches. She drew them too large and this made her face seem stretched. They were also drawn too high and draped the rest of her features into an expression of boredom, almost sarcasm.

The first sentece is talking about grandma's temper, then the rest is how she make herself up.
My question is : What does the bold sentence mean?
- continue to describe her temper , like what said in https://www.italki.com/post/question-440208?
- Or just simply meant to take a deep look at her face?
