The best eyebrow shape for your face shape

Home » The best eyebrow shape for your face shape

Are you one of the many of us who fell victim to teenage tweezing and lost your natural eyebrow shape to sparse, over plucked brows? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. When it comes to growing back brows, it seems easy to opt for a style you like and run with it, inspired bushy brows or high arch might not be the perfect brow shape for you. Brows are the frames of the face, so you should make sure yours are totally bespoke to you and your features. Here is the ultimate guide to eyebrow shapes.

I always think one of the most important things to take into consideration with face shapes is the height of the arch. It’s like wearing stripes – if you want to make your legs appear longer, vertical stripes will do that, so when working with someone that has a smaller/shorter face lifting the arch will help elongate the face. In the exact same context, by lowering the arch on a longer face it will help shorten their face shape.

"Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look"

Find your Face Shape.

Start by pulling your hair back from your face, and look closely in the mirror. The features to look for are:

Oval Face Shape • Forehead is wider than the chin • Prominent cheekbones • Face gracefully tapers to a narrow chin

About this Shape: This is considered the ideal face shape. The brows play no role in making the face appear "more oval" -it already is oval. The perfect eyebrow shape is widely considered to be the soft angled eyebrow shape. The soft angled shape goes straight up and then gently curves round at the top and down.

Round Face Shape • Face is almost as wide as it is long • Face is widest at the cheeks

The Goal: Make a round face appear less round by making the face appear longer.

The Eyebrow: Apply lines that go more up and down the face. This helps draw the eye up and down and lengthens it. Create as high an arch as you can. A high arched brow accomplishes this. Look for a brow shape that follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and creates more vertical lines. Stay away from a rounded brow shape. This makes a round face look very round.

Long Face Shape • Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width • Face gracefully tapers to a narrow oval chin

The Goal: Make a long face appear shorter. The Eyebrow: Apply straight horizontal lines that stop the eye moving up and down the face. A flat brow shape accomplishes this. Its horizontal shape makes the face appear shorter.

Square Face Shape • Forehead, cheekbones and jawlines are all about the same width • The squared jawline is the most obvious feature

The Goal: A square jaw is a strong feature. Balance it with a strong brow or soften it with curves. The Eyebrow: A thicker stronger colour and shape balances a heavier jawline. A defined sharp peak at the top of the brow makes the brow appear stronger. Angled brows create this balance. Also consider the curved brow shape, suggested for diamond face shapes. The curves soften stronger features.

Heart Face Shape • Similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point

The Goal: Soften your look with curves and create a beautiful heart shape using the point of your chin as the heart bottom and the brows as the top of the heart. The Eyebrow: The best eyebrow shape for a heart shaped face is rounded. A low arch rounded brow creates a natural look, while a highly arched brow can add length to a shorter heart shaped face or create a dramatic look. The curve of the brow is soft, feminine and attractive and also creates the heart like look of the face.

Diamond Face Shape • Not as common as the other face shapes • Typically the face is highly angular • The forehead is somewhat short and the face is widest at the temples

The Goal: Soften the angles in your diamond face shape and make the widest portion of the face appear less wide. The Eyebrow: Curves will both soften your look and make the widest portion of your face look less wide. The curved brow shape does this. Notice that many beautiful celebrities that have a diamond face shape also have curved brows. A second popular choice are the round brow stencils - also suggested for the heart face shape.

Find your Face Shape: Step 1: Measure the length of your face with a ruler. (In this case the total length of the face is 8). Step 2: Divide the total length by 3. (In this case 8 divided by 3 is 2.67). Step 3: Measure the length from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin. (in this case 2 1/3) • If the last number is larger than the first number, chances are you have a long face. • If the last number is less than the first number, chances are you have a round face. • If the last number equals the first number, chances are you have an oval face.
