How to Choose Your Best Eyebrow Shape
The current trend for eyebrows is big and bushy. This makes them an even more prominent facial feature. So, the shape is even more important than in days passed when they were super skinny and barely there. Here we have some tips to help you choose the best eyebrow shape to suit your face before your next brow wax appointment.
Determine Your Face Shape
There are five basic face shapes: round, square, oval, heart, and diamond. Determining your face shape is the most important step in finding your ideal eyebrow shape. Your eyebrows play a major part in framing your face and so have the ability to greatly influence your appearance. Not getting their shape right can emphasize the wrong features and give you an unbalanced look.
A full brow with a high angled arch will provide lift and structure to a round face. Making them more wide-set (arch farther from your nose) will make your face appear wider. Avoid softly rounded brows which will only make your face look more round.
A curved brow helps to soften the angles of a square face. A high arch will give the illusion of added length. Avoid angled arches which will make your face look shorter and more squared.
Oval faces can pull off almost any look with their hair, makeup, and even eyebrows. A brow that is softly angled is quite flattering. Avoid very high arches though. This could make your face appear too long.
For a heart-shaped face, you should opt for a softer arch to balance a more pointed chin. Avoid a high, sharp arch which will make your face appear too angled.
You can soften the wide, angled jaw of a diamond face with a curved brow. Take the arch higher for an elongating effect. Keep the arch low to shorten the face.
