The perfect eyebrow shape for your face
Eyebrows are a girl’s best friend – or they can be her worst enemy. If you grew up in the noughties you probably used to be of the latter persuasion but in recent years the eyebrow has made a massive comeback.
No longer are we plucking away our caterpillars till they are mere suggestions of eyebrows. Rather, eyebrows are now our partners in crime. If you thought shaping was the only skill you needed to manipulate the shape of your face look a little higher. Your eyebrows can help you compliment the shape of your face or create more symmetry.
To get the perfect brow you will need to know which shape will suit your face best. Whether you’re a square, round, oval, heart or diamond with these tips your brows will always be on fleek.
A square face is quite easy to identify with a squared jawline being the biggest give away. A square face is quite angular, you can either lean into this or try and soften your features.To soften the angularity of your face you can opt for a slightly rounded brow or balance it out with a more angled brow.
If your face is widest at the cheeks and roughly as wide as it is long you have a round face. To create an illusion of length take those brows up high, baby. Straight lines and high arches are what you want to lengthen your face.
An oval face can be recognised by a wider forehead that tapers to a narrow chin. This shape is considered to be the “ideal” face shape so your eyebrows can just exist in their natural form. Focus on maintaining a natural, soft arch.
Heart shaped faces are very similar to the oval face but are distinguished by a pointy chin. Attention is drawn to the width of your forehead so really you need your eyebrows to draw attention elsewhere. If that sounds a little tricky worry not, the two things you want to focus on is keeping your brows narrow and rounded – you want them to form the top of the heart.
Diamond faces are a little less common but can be distinguished by angular features and wide temples. Your brows should work to soften your angular features so focus on rounding out your eyebrows. To balance out the width of your temples create a higher arch to add a little bit of length to your face.
