The Perfect Eyebrows for your Face

Have you ever wondered if eyebrow shape really matters when it comes to your face shape? 

The answer is yes!! Truthfully, it can make or break your look. If you have no idea where to begin when it comes to eyebrows, here is a little guide..

So you definitely have one of the six face shapes. The six types are oval, round, long, square, heart, or diamond. If you have never thought about your face shape before, just look in the mirror with your hair pulled back. 

Below is your guide to determining your face shape, and which type of brow is best for you! Once you determine that, just comb the brows the way they grow naturally, and tweeze and/or trim the hairs to be as close to the desired shape. Make sure you tweeze any stragglers too, or if you are nervous about it, just go ahead and let a professional do it. Just make sure to tell them exactly what you are going for with your eyebrow shape. And let it be known, you obviously cannot completely change the shape of your brows, (unless you are shaving them and drawing them in...umm, ick..) but you can definitely tweak them to become more flattering for your face.

 

Your guide:

Oval Face Shape: Your forehead is wider than your chin, your cheekbones are prominent, and your face gradually tapers down a narrow, oval chin. This is considered the ideal face shape, and the perfect eyebrow for you is the soft angled eyebrow shape. It gradually goes up and then gently curves around at the top and then down.

Round Face Shape: Your face’s width and length are about the same, and your face is widest at the cheeks. The goal here for eyebrows is to make the face appear longer as opposed to rounder. A high arched brow is perfect for this face shape because it helps to draw the eye up and down and lengthens the face.

Long Face Shape: Your forehead cheekbones and jawline are all about the same width, and your face tapers down to a narrow, oval chin. With this face shape, we want to make it appear shorter, so a flat eyebrow is best.

Square Face Shape: Your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are all about the same widths, with the most obvious feature being the squared jawline. A defined, sharp peak at the top of the brow is best for this face shape so it balances out the square jaw. Another option is to make the brows softer to soften stronger features.

Heart Face Shape: This is similar to an oval face shape, but the chin tapers down to a point. The best eyebrow shape for you is rounded, using the bottom of your chin for the lower curve of the heart, and your eyebrows as the top curves. The goal here is to soften your look with curves, so rounded brows are best. You can create a soft natural look by creating low rounded brows, or to achieve a dramatic look, create higher arches.

Diamond Face Shape: This is the least common of the shapes. With this shape, your face is widest at the temples, the forehead is short, and the face is highly angular. Here, we want to make the widest portion of your face appear less wide. A curved eyebrow shape is best for this.

So, I hope this gives you a little guidance with your eyebrows..
