The perfect brow shape for you can transform your whole face – lifting the eye area, enhancing your natural features and giving you a more youthful appearance.
Here is the ultimate guide to the best eyebrow shapes for your face shape.
EYEBROWS FOR ROUND FACE SHAPE
A round face can be spotted by its soft, curved chin. The cheekbones will be the widest part of the face with the face being almost as wide as it is long.
Rounded brows on a rounded face will make it appear rounder. The best way to enhance a round face shape is to keep the brow soft and slightly curved. Adding height at the arch of the brow and extra length on the tails creates the illusion of a longer face.
EYEBROWS FOR OVAL FACE SHAPE
An oval face has a forehead that is not much wider than the chin. You’ll have a soft chin and a slight curve to the sides of the face.
If you have an oval face you’ll actually suit most brow styles. For the most flattering brows for you, try to avoid making brows too angular. Keep the characteristics soft to reflect your features.
EYEBROWS FOR SQUARE FACE SHAPE
Square faces have strong, defined angles, with the sides of the face being quite straight and an angular jawline.
For brows to perfectly flatter you, keep them angular so they don’t contradict your natural face shape. A lifted arch and lengthened tail help to elongate the face. You may find a flat brow will emphasise the square shape of the face, while the curved appearance of a rounded brow will not flatter your gorgeous features.
EYEBROWS FOR LONG FACE SHAPE
An oblong, long or rectangle face has similar characteristics to a square face, the only difference being that they are longer than they are wide. Your forehead, cheeks and jawline will be around the same width with little curvature in the chin.
If you want to create the most flattering brows for you, we recommend adding length to the end of your brow and keeping them far apart at the front, as this gives the illusion of a wider forehead. An angular shape will flatter your naturally angular features.
EYEBROWS FOR HEART-SHAPED FACE
If you’re heart-shaped, the forehead is the widest part of the face with a narrow, pointed chin. We can use brows to balance your proportions, making the forehead appear smaller and the chin less sharp.
Rounded brows will beautifully emphasise lines of the heart shape, so we’d recommend a softly shaped brow with a slight curve. Try to keep the brows shorter in length and close together to draw attention to the middle of the face.
EYEBROWS FOR PEAR FACE SHAPE
Also known as a triangle-shaped face, those with a pear-shaped face have a defined jawline that tapers up to the hairline.
Brows that are too short or flat won’t make the most of your natural beauty. Keeping your eyebrows longer and arched will be the most flattering for you. In fact, it can actually make the lower half of your face appear narrower.
