Delicate features, perfect summer glow and skin as soft as feather but something’s not right. Glossy lips, bronzer on cheek but are your eyebrows on fleek? The shape of your brows is as important as face contour.
When perfecting your eyebrows, the shape of your face is of primary importance. We will help you determine your face cut and hence what brow shape suits you right.
High-arched for a round face
For a round face, a structured brow with angled arches works well. High arched eyebrows add sharpness and definition to your soft, round face. Rounded brows are a big no-no! They make your face appear more plump and full.
Soft angled for oval face
Everyone wants this face- the oval face. If you have an oval face, your wider forehead and prominent cheekbones tapering down to a narrow chin, gives you a perfectly balanced look. Full and soft angled eyebrows, slightly curved at both ends would make your face look a little rounder and draw the attention to your eyes. Stay away from arched eyebrows.
Soft rounded eyebrows for heart shape
With a wide forehead, narrow jawline and a pointed chin, the heart-shaped face requires soft rounded eyebrows. The low arched rounded brows give you a natural look on your short heart-shaped face. There should be a considerable gap between your eyebrows. Avoid close set or S-shaped brows, they look far too clashing for your sharp featured face.
Straight brows for long face
If you have a long face, straight eyebrows are perfect for you. Your forehead, cheekbones and a strong jawline are all of about the same width. The flat brows give your face a horizontal line illusion making it look shorter. Longer eyebrows could give you a very dull and incomplete look. Try and avoid them.
Arched brows for square face
Square faces have a broad forehead and a chin of the similar width. Your heavy jawline makes your face look boxy. Accented arched brows of medium thickness gives your face a narrow look and draw the attention from the jawline to your eyes. Thin brows would make your heavy jawline more prominent.
S for diamond shaped face
For women with a diamond-shaped face which is broad at temples and has a shorter but wide forehead, S-shaped eyebrows works the best. It has a slight upward curve at the beginning of the eyebrow, and is a little arched as well. This helps in softening the look and making your face look less wide. Lesser distance between your brows would only make it look wider, stick to gapped brows.
