Your eyebrows, like your hair, can change your face drastically. Just ask the thousands of people who invest a lot of time and money to get a picture-worthy set of eyebrows. However, there are eyebrow styles that look good on some people but will not work on others. Good thing there is a formula to finding the right eyebrow shape for your face.
If you have a diamond-shaped face, it means your forehead is short but the temples are wide. Your eyebrows should make your face appear slightly less narrower, but widen your cheekbones. Go for curved eyebrows to soften those angles on your face.
This means that your forehead is wider than your chin, but your chin tapers to a point. Drawing the right eyebrow shape can be tricky for this face shape because you can’t have bushy or thin eyebrows. A round arch will do just that, but make sure that your eyebrows are well-groomed and balances your small jaw and slightly bigger forehead.
You have a long face if your chin is oval-shaped and narrow, and your jawlines, cheeks, and forehead have the same width. A flat eyebrow will shorten your face, so avoid arched brows as much as possible. Make sure to extend the tails of your eyebrows vertically to create an illusion that your face isn’t stretched out. Just don’t draw the lines too far out.
You have an oval-shaped face if your forehead is wider than your chin and you have prominent cheekbones. Slightly-arched eyebrows are your best bet, because you have a well-proportioned face and beautiful cheekbones.
You have a round-shaped face if your face’s length and width and nearly equal, though your cheeks are slightly wider than the rest. Angular eyebrows or high arch eyebrows are your best friend to bring out some angles on your face. The higher the arch, the better. Avoid the rounded brows that will make your face appear rounder.
You have a square-shaped face if your jawline is your most prominent feature, and your jawlines, cheeks, and forehead have the same width. Softly-rounded brows that are bold and full will make your face look slightly less angular, but avoid rounded eyebrows that will make you look as if you’re always surprised.
No matter what face shape you have, however, you still need to follow the golden rules of eyebrow shaping, such as; the lines begin at the inner corners of the eye and feather towards the center; the eyebrow arch should be at about 1/8 inch past the irises; the outer points should be thinner that the inner lines; and the tip of the brow should never be below the beginning line of the brow.
