Eyebrow Tutorial: What is the Perfect Eyebrow for Your Face Shape?

Since we’re all uniquely made, we have to own our features and make them work! Thankfully, achieving the perfect eyebrows for any face shape is just within reach. I’m not saying it’s easy, but with practice, you’ll get eyebrows on fleek wherever you go and whenever you need to. Let’s now start our simple eyebrow tutorial on how to get the ideal eyebrows for you:

 

1. Square Face Shape | Eyebrow Tutorial

With the square face shape, the angular jaw is prominent. What we want to do is soften the face to contrast the face’s angularity. The perfect eyebrow shape is softly rounded brows. Here, the arc is more curved than pointed. But please be careful, you don’t want to make eyebrows in the shape of rainbows. Start thick and go thinner as you reach the end of the eyebrow.

 

2. Round Face Shape | Eyebrow Tutorial

On the contrary, if you have a round face shape, you want to do away with the softness and add more definition. So, the perfect eyebrows for you is an angular brow with a higher arch. This eyebrow shape will help define your facial bone structure, which is often hidden due to the rounded shape of the face.

 

3. Long Face Shape | Eyebrow Tutorial

For women with the long face shape, the focus is usually placed on how the face is vertically stretched. Of course, we want to diffuse that and instead, achieve a better balance. So for your eyebrows, the perfect one is an eyebrow that stretches past the corner of the eye. This will create a horizontal effect on the face, thereby balancing the face better. However, please be cautious when extending the eyebrows; avoid dragging it too far as the eyes will appear droopy.

Those Instagram brows might still be trending, but unfortunately, that’s not the best eyebrow shape for you. For those with the heart face shape, avoiding thick eyebrows is a must because that will just further emphasize the upper part of the face. The perfect eyebrow for you is one that well-manicured and groomed. Makeup pros call it a tight eyebrow, wherein the ultra-polished look will balance the small chin and jawline.

 

5. Oval Face Shape | Eyebrow Tutorial

The oval face shape is known to be the well-proportioned face shape, which means it already has the balance it needs. So when it comes to the eyebrows, it’s best to stick with the classic and balanced eyebrows as well, although a slight arc won’t hurt too! So what does it take to get balanced brows? Just three important things: 1) The head of the brows must be aligned with the bridge of the nose, 2) The arch should be two-thirds of the way out, and 3) The tail shouldn’t end lower than the head; must be tapered to give the eye a lift.

 

Tips for the Perfect Brows

1. Locate the head of your brow

Place tweezers vertically alongside the outer edge of the bottom of your nose. This marks the head of your brow (about one inch above the inner corner of the eye).

2. Locate the tail of your brow

Place the tweezers on an angle against your cheek from the bottom of your nose to the outer corner of your eye. This point should mark the end of your brow, or the tail.

3. Determine the thickness of your brow

Starting just below the fullest part of your brow, draw a line along the bottom edge, above any stray hairs, following the natural shape of your brow’s top line. Your brows should be between a quarter inch and a half inch at the thickest.

4. Shape your brow

The arch should rise just above the outer rim of your iris and land right on your brow bone.
