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.
Oval Face Shape- the face gracefull tapers toward the chin, wider forehead, prominent cheek bones, this is the ideal face shape.
Goal: to maintain the ideal oval face
Brow solution: a soft, angled eyebrow shape
Long Face Shape- the face gracefully tapers toward the chin, elongated feature from forehead to chin, some have prominent chin.
Goal: to make the face appear shorter
Brow solution: a flatter eyebrow shape which should stop the viewer from seeing the elonged face
Round Face Shape- the face width and length are almost the same, widest at cheeks.
Goal: to make the round face shape appear longer
Brow solution: a high arch eyebrow shape which draw the viewer up and down on the face, following the up and down pattern of the brow
Square Face Shape- the forehead, cheekbones and jawline are almost the same width, square and boney jawline is a prominent feature.
Goal: to soften/balance the strong jawline
Brow solution: start with curved eyebrow shape and then add more angle to create balance, deepen the angle of the brow depending on the strength and bonyness of the jawline
Heart Face Shape- the face strongly tapers to the chin, chin tends to be pointy, forehead may be a prominent feature.
Goal: to soften and balance the strong, pointy chin and’or prominante forehead
Brow solution: start with a low arch, round and curved brows, add more volume ass needed to apprea to add length and balances out the chin
Diamond Face Shape- the face in highly angular and somewhat boney, widest at temples, uncommon face shape.
Goal: to soften the whole face and reduce appearance of width
Brow solution: a curved eyebrow shape will soften an angeled face and reduce the appreance of width at the temples
