They say eyebrows can really make or break your look. And they aren’t entirely wrong!
Did you know that a correct eyebrow can define the symmetry of your face like never before while an eyebrow unsuitable for your face can accentuate all the unflattering angles?
So how do you decide what brows suit you? Read on to find the perfect brows to compliment your face shape!
Before deciding how to shape your brow, it’s vital to understand what your face shape is. Once you have assessed that, groom your brow to perfection in harmony with that face cut.
An oval face is generally considered the most appealing face shape. It is wider at the forehead with well-defined cheekbones and a narrow chin. Well proportioned, this face shape doesn’t require any effort. Softly arched eyebrows, thick or thin would blend well with the face.
Gently pluck out any stray strands while maintaining the natural arch of your brow. Make sure that the arch appears not at the center but about 2/3rd towards the outer side.
You have a round face if the length and width of your face are about the same, being widest at the cheeks. With this shape, our aim is to make the face appear longer, minimizing the round effect by accentuating the face structure.
Angular brows work well for this face. You want to add definition, so create a higher arch by taking the eyebrow up a little more than usual and then bringing it down to create that longitudinal effect. The difference between the high and low point in your brow is going to add a sharper look to your face.
The forehead, cheeks and the jaw line are all about the same width. The features appear to be vertically elongated.
Our goal with this shape is to make it appear shorter. For that, do not create arches for your brow that will exacerbate the appearance of a longer face. Instead, create flat, horizontally laid out eyebrows. Brush out your brows but make sure the highest point of your brow is not too elevated than the starting point. This will try to make your face appear wider to balance the oblong effect.
This shape is recognized by its wide, squared jaw line.
To minimize the angularity of the face, create softly arched brows. Ensure that the slight curve remains but do not over pluck as that will create a sharp arch which will further highlight the square jaw. Keep the brows natural and on the thicker side to balance the heaviness in the lower section of the face.
This face is widest at the forehead and narrowest at the chin. The chin is noticeably pointed.
To reduce the wideness of the forehead and to balance the narrow jaw line and chin, keep a soft, rounded arch. It is advised that the brow is kept well trimmed instead of bushy as the upper portion of the face is already heavy and we want to balance the petite chin instead of overshadowing it with the thick brow.
The right eyebrows can go a long way in defining your face in the most flattering way. With our simple guide, you can master the art of correct eyebrows in no time!
