Finding the best eyebrow shape for you can make all the difference when it comes to your look. The biggest thing to take into account when deciding which eyebrow shape will flatter your face is your face shape. Typically, most faces fall into one of the following six shape categories; oval, round, long, square, heart or diamond.
Which Face Shape Do I Have?
If you aren’t sure which face shape your face identifies with, then you can follow the instructions below to figure out which one fits you best.
1. Measure: Measure the full length of your face from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin.
2. Divide: Take the length of your face and divide it by three, this number will most likely be a decimal.
3. Measure Again: Measure the length from the tip of your nose to the bottom of your chin.
• If your last number is bigger than your first number, you most likely have a long face or a square face.
• If your last number is smaller than your first number, you probably have a round or diamond face shape.
• If your last number is equal to your first number, you most likely have an oval or heart shaped face.
Now that you know which face shape describes you best, you can begin to start
looking at which eyebrow shape will flatter your shape.
Long Face Shape Eyebrows
A long face usually means that your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all right around the same length. This type of face usually tapers down to a narrow chin, and appears in an oval shape. The best eyebrow shape for this type of face is a flat eyebrow shape. Flat eyebrows create the optical illusion to make the long face shape appear shorter which brings their face as a whole into balance instead of appearing out of balance.
Oval Face Shape Eyebrows
The oval face shape is obviously already oval, so therefore there is no eyebrow shape that needs to make the face appear more oval shaped. Eyebrows on an oval face shape don’t really need to make the face appear any different as oval is typically the ideal face shape. A soft angle eyebrow shape does the best for this face shape because it doesn’t have a drastic effect on the face. The shape of this eyebrow goes up and the middle and then gently drops down.
Heart Face Shape Eyebrows
When you have a heart shaped face, the recommended brow shape is rounded as it is helps to create the heart shape of the face without being overly harsh. A rounded brow creates a very natural look which makes the face look soft and feminine. If this is isn’t the look you’re going for with your heart face shape, then you can arch your brows to create a more dramatic and impactful look.
Round Face Shape Eyebrows
A round face shape typically wants to appear as longer, which is done by using a higher arch eyebrow. Eyebrows with a higher arch helps to draw the eye up and down, essentially creating an optical illusion that the face is longer instead of wide and rounder. An arched eyebrow for a round face will have a straight line to the peak of the brow and then another angle straight down from that as if to create a mountain shape.
Square Face Shape Eyebrows
Eyebrow shape for a square face shape should help to balance the face as a square face typically has strong jaw features. A curvy eyebrow helps to balance the sharpness of this jaw by creating an eyebrow that softens the sharpness of the face with curves. Another option is to accentuate the sharpness of a square face by creating a sharp, angled brow, it just depends on the look you want.
Diamond Face Shape Eyebrows
Diamond face shaped eyebrows create a shape that can sometimes need to be
softened. Softening this look can be done by shaping your eyebrows in a curved way to help combat the sharpness of a diamond face shape. Curved eyebrows help to show diamond faces as softer and more calm.
