FACE SHAPES

FACE SHAPES

Knowing your face shape can help you to determine a perfect eyebrow shape to compliment it. Here are a few beauty tips for shaping eyebrows based on different face shapes.

ROUND FACE
To minimize the roundness of the face, you want sharp, high arched, angled brows. High arches will draw attention upwards and make a face look slimmer. Brows that are sharp and angled add more definition to the face, thereby taking attention away from the softness of a round face. Eyebrows should not taper too far out adding width to the face. Instead, brows should be more angular with a heightened arch in line with the pupil to give the illusion of more length to the face

HEART-SHAPED FACE
To counter the sharp features of a heart-shaped face, you want to go softer with a rounded (only very slightly angled) brow. Make sure you keep the arch low and avoid a high one.

SQUARE-SHAPED FACE
If you have a square-shaped face, you naturally have some strong angles to your face, especially your jawline. So, we want to counter that with a soft brow that’s softly angled with a soft arch. Avoid hard angles and keep them more rounded. Eyebrows should not taper too far out adding width to the face, brows should have a softer arch in line with the pupil.

LONG FACE
With a long face, the goal is to draw attention horizontally rather than vertically to counter the length of the face. A flat, straighter, elongated brow shape works best. opt for a very low arch…steer clear of high arches!

OVAL FACE
There are no hard rules for those with oval-shaped faces. But the most flattering option is a soft angled, softly arched brow.

NARROW FACE
Eyebrows should taper wider, with the arch in line with the lateral edge of the iris.

PEAR FACE
You would wish to create width at the forehead region this could be achieved by tapering out the tail of the eyebrows further and placing the height of the arch to the lateral edge of the iris. As there is a fullness to the jaw line, eyebrows should be more angular to take the focus away.

DIAMOND FACE
You would wish to create width at the forehead region this could be achieved by tapering out the tail of the eyebrows further but keep tapering to a slightly higher angle, so you do not accentuate the widest point of the face (lateralzygomatic arch) and place the height of the brow arch to the lateral edge of the iris. Shape should be softer, not angled.
