The right brow for your face shape

Did you know that the shape of your face can determine which brow shape is for you? Different face shapes may require different brow shapes to compliment! I guess my face is somewhere in between oval and square, so an arched brow that isn't too thin seems to be best for me. Natural looking, thicker brows are trending, so stay away from over-plucked, pencil-thin eyebrow looks! First, let’s start with accurately determining your face shape.
